Even though I was hoping to be voted best “New Thug Motivator” or “Best Dive Bar”, Stacey Bode Photography was named Best Photographer in Creative Loafing’s Best Of Atlanta 2013. OMG!!! I’m so excited and seriously blown away by this. When someone texted me about it this morning, I actually went to the CL site to make sure it wasn’t a joke. Wow. I don’t know who voted for me or why, but my heart feels very full of love and gratitude right now. This is even better than the perfect attendance awards I got in high school. Like, so much better.

Alicia is such an effortlessly gorgeous woman. Confident, smart, fun, lovely. These things add up to a pretty marvelous photo shoot. Heckyeah! I had a ball taking her Cheeky Lamb Boudoir pics at the super-cool Hotel Indigo. The setting was perfect for Alicia’s modern city chic style. She gave these photos to her fella as a wedding day present, and I heard that he was pretty happy with his gift. I mean….right? His lady is stunning.
* Super-props to the wonderful makeup talents of Sloane Warren!
Be careful to never use the word “never”. See what I did there? Anyway, I always swore that I wouldn’t ever want a studio space. I thought I wasn’t an “indoor” kind of photographer (whatever that means). I am now feasting on my own words, because I’ve just finished setting up my very own photo studio, and I’m super-freaking-duper excited! It is a tiny area, but I can still do lots and lots of cool things in there. I have a chalkboard wall that we can draw all sorts of stuff on. I have a seamless, white backdrop, as well as other patterned, and even glittery backdrops to play with. Yes!
One important purpose for setting this up is because I wanted folks to have options for fun and inexpensive photo packages that also wouldn’t be hindered by the time of day or what Mother Nature has going on. So here’s my crazy-easy and affordable new studio package.
A 30-MINUTE SHOOT, 10 EDITED FINAL IMAGES IN A GALLERY (WHERE YOU DOWNLOAD THE PRINT-QUALITY FILES), FOR JUST 75 BUCKAROOS.
Easy peasy, right?
I’ll still be doing my usual “full”, on-location shoots for headshots, family portraits, weddings, engagements, etc. This is simply a new option for something cool and quick. Here are a few examples of what works great for a studio-type mini shoot:
MILESTONE/CELEBRATION PHOTOS (BIRTHDAYS, VALENTINES DAY, ANNIVERSARIES, ETC)
ONCE-A-MONTH MATERNITY PICS
HOLIDAY CARD PHOTOS
EDITORIAL SHOTS FOR MODELING COMP CARDS
MINI BOUDOIR SHOOTS
MUG TOTS (KID MUG SHOTS; ASK ME ABOUT THESE!)
JUST FOR FUN BECAUSE YOU’RE FEELIN’ AWESOME!
We like visual stuff, so here are some photos of the new space, and what can be done in it. All my images posted here were taken in a studio or backdrop situation, so you can see a little sample of what can be done in my studio. I can’t wait to use the heck out of this room. Woo hoo!!
Oh, now where do I start with this uber-lovely little lady? Y’all. I love Jenny. Anyone who knows Jenny, loves Jenny. Was I just a TAD happy when she wanted to do a Cheeky Lamb Boudoir shoot? Perhapsibly. We got to have the most girly-awesome photo time, and her hubby got a very, very special birthday present this year. Yes. When you look at how jaw-droppingly gorgeous she is in these pics, and you wanna start hatin’……don’t. She’s also whip-smart, talented, and the daggum sweetest thing since swirly blue lollipops.
I could not write this post without giving mad, stupid props to the incredible Miss Gina Rickicki for her kick-ass hair and makeup styling. I mean, seriously Gina! Seriously.
Now, take a gander at Jenny’s photos. If you can stand all the pretty.
Y’all, I love me some thrift store shopping. I just found these little lingerie gems. I will add them to my arsenal of Cheeky Lamb Boudoir outfits and goodies. Note: other than slips, I typically don’t purchase any second-hand under-pinnings that are worn below the waist. Those personal items should probably remain, well, personal. : ) These lovely items pictured here will probably be saved for a shoot involving someone eating cotton candy. Squeeeee!
