“I’m a wife, mom, dog lover and a former teacher. I feel so lucky to get to do what I love. I feel honored to create precious memories for you.”
about bodey marcoccia – (pronounced: BOH-dee mar-KOH-chuh)
Since receiving my first DSLR camera in 2008, I’ve consistently enjoyed the persuit of photography. I live near Sonora, California with my wife and two sons.
I love landscape photography. Whether it’s Pacific beaches, Scottish plains, Eastern Sierra mountains, or any other number of breathtaking locations I’ve had the fortune of visiting, I always try to capture the one shot that can make someone else feel like they’re right there with me.
I’ve spent the last few years transitioning and building my skills as a portrait photographer, and I’d be glad to work with you to create printed memories that will last a lifetime.
Hi everyone…Tahoe is sad. I want to go outside and play on my property. Dad says I get to muddy. Getting muddy is fun for Tahoe and Tucker. Can someone make it stop so I can play again. Dad won’t let us wrestle in the house, he yells at Tahoe sometimes…..but then I kiss and hug him and everything is better. Dad says if anyone wants pictures of their fur babies he is going to have his Spring Fur-Baby Photoshoot Specials. For only a few dog biscuits …. wait dad says $150 for photoshoot (45 minute shoot) and (1) 11×14 and (2) 8×10 prints included. This special will last until May 15th. Message for appointment or have your baby bark at me me and I’ll tell dad. I wuv my dad so much …. until next time Tahoe wuvs all of you too!
We would like to say congratulations to the @amtraksanjoaquins Rail Tales Photo Contest winner Armando Soliz from Bakersfield, Ca.! It was an honor being on the Judges Panel, along with other local photographers. We would like to also acknowledge and thank all who entered.
We can not think of a better way to see and photograph this beautiful area we live in then by doing it on Amtrak San Joaquins!
My Wife and I moved to Grass Valley in 2011. Up until then the only thing I knew about Grass Valley was that it was two words on the signs on Interstate 80. Since the move, I have had a quest to venture off of every exit on I-80, east of Colfax. With a little help from my wife, kicking me out of the house for the day, I started out on my adventure.
This is the beginning of a three, or four, or more part series. I did not take photos at every exit, or from every exits area, as it just was not that interesting. I am surprised so far with what I have found.
Today’s installment I leave Colfax heading east. I only get as far as the Alta exit as I spent most of the day in Dutch Flat, (In my head I am sounding just like good ole Huell Howser).

The last trip of the year. Where to go? Why not Tahoe! Not only is the area beautiful, but it also has so much to offer for activities. We decided a month out that traveling to South Lake Tahoe would be a fun destination to spend our last days of 2017 at. Not only do we celebrate the new year, we also get to celebrate my husband’s birthday (he’s a new years baby, born on January 1st). We started our trip off with a nice break in Chico at the Sierra Nevada Brewing company for an amazing lunch. The food is amazing and who doesn’t enjoy a good beer.
After our amazing lunch, we continued on our way to South Lake. The sunset was amazing!!!
I love sunsets. Something about the way the colors paint the sky. I’m use to mountain sunsets, so it’s always nice having a different view. Even if the view happens to be from the backseat.
Fun fact: the Sutter Buttes is known as the smallest mountain range in the world.
On our first morning in Tahoe my husband and our friend took a short drive to Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows for their day of skiing. Normally I would be right with them on the slopes, but I stayed behind to enjoy time with my friends and family. Which turned out to be a good thing considering they left their ski boots behind at the cabin. Silly mistake, but it happens. Me and a friend drove half way to meet them and bring them their ski boots. We chose a perfect destination! Emerald Bay. It’s so beautiful.
We even did the tourist thing….
We got really lucky, because it was early in the morning, we had the place to ourselves. Later in the day we took the rest of our group up to Emerald Bay to see the beautiful view and were not as lucky. It was crowded and we were barely able to find a spot to park. Even then we didn’t get the same view. But I’ll settle for what we did get.
I have fallen in love with the world in a black and white form. Not because I don’t appreciate color, or enjoy it’s beauty. But because I feel it is through the lack of color you see the true image. It’s structure. The lines. The details you might overlook had you been distracted by bright reds, or vibrant greens. The patterns that make up the petal of a flower are intricate, beautiful, and amazing. The way a drop of water hangs in balance on the tip… The slight imperfections each tell a story. All details that are easily overlooked when hidden within the wonderful colors of nature. Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate the beautiful colors of our world, and think nature has done a perfect job of painting the scenery. I often shoot in color just for this reason. But in my newest gallery, I’m looking beyond the colors and enjoying the deeper beauty of nature, people, and things we see in our every day life, but maybe we’re not really seeing them….
So, join me as I travel into the world of black and white. Visit my newest gallery at 11:eleven Photography and see the beginning of this journey, and check back often as I continue to add more images from this adventure.
What better way to start the new year than with a new blog? My name is Steph Gabler, owner of Steph Gabler Photography. I am titling my blog ” License to Explore” because that is exactly what my camera encourages me to do. I plan on sharing the good, the bad, and the ugly of my adventures with my camera.
So, Day one…January 1, 2018. Today the weather in Northern California was perfect (if you like mid-60’s in January). My family and I jumped into my truck and headed west to explore a place I had heard of, but had never visited, Mather Regional Park. My goal, the variety of birds that call the pond home this time of the year.
The park is cute, but be warned THERE IS A $5 PARKING FEE!!!! First off I noticed this gentleman fishing, with Swans swimming in the background. Now, if you are not a “birder” you may not know that these Swans were not common around here until a few years ago, so seeing them is very exciting! There is a gravel path around 3/4 of the pond, but it does appear that they are working on making the trail go all the way around.
First goal.. the Swans. I’m guessing 26 swans were enjoying this sunny morning.
Aren’t they beautiful? I might add, they are quite large as well. As I was shooting the swan, I noticed that there was a pair of white Pelicans! Wait! What? Yes! Even though we are about an hour inland from the Pacific Ocean, we had a pair of Pelicans visiting.
Before I could make my way around the pond to get a closer shot of the Pelicans, I spotted a beautiful Great Blue Heron. I have never really gotten a good picture of these majestic birds, they are kinda jumpy. That’s ok… I like a challenge.
Like I said… they are kinda jumpy, but I did get to see him glide by me.
Just ahead, my goal, the Pelicans. Clearly a mating pair, we enjoyed the male trying to impress the female (who really could have cared less). So here is what I saw….
Our bird count, Swans, Pelicans, Egrets, Cormorants, Coots, Great Blue Herons, Hawks, Grackles, Canada Goose, Mallard ducks, and Buffleheads. Not bad for a mileish walk around the pond.
I am going to create a rating system for all these adventure locations. 1-5 cameras
Mather Regional Park, Rancho Cordova, CA gets 2/5 cameras.
I drive past this nearly every day. It is a highlight of my commute. I look forward to seeing it. Not because it is especially beautiful, although when the sun is just right, it is a lovely view. I just love the solo tree, standing all alone. It doesn’t complain. It doesn’t make excuses. It doesn’t wish it were somewhere else, doing something different. It is not affected. It can rain buckets, the sun can beat down on it from sunrise to sunset. It can be freezing cold, and the wind could be blowing fiercely. And it just stands there, through it all, just being a tree. Doing what it is meant to do. Trees make good teachers. People should be more like trees…
Located along Hwy. 49, between Auburn and the Lake of the Pines area. If you’re in the area, see it for yourself. 😊 Or you can just go to my website and see this, and more beauty, from around the Gold Country.
One of my favorite things about photography is that I can share the beauty I capture with others. One of my favorite things about the Gold Country, is that there is so much to capture. Through my lens, will be an ongoing journey. I will share with you the beauty, my travels, my experiences.
I’ve been a traveler. A wanderer. And yes, there is beauty to be found in all corners of the world. Some places have beautiful forests, some have gorgeous rivers, or mountains. Some places the beauty is in the people that reside there, or the history that lies within it. In all my travels I have not found another place that has all these things in one place. The Gold Country, set in Northern California has all these things, and more, practically within arms reach of one another. I am currently in the “heart” of the Gold Country, Nevada County. And although I have tried to move away several times, it has a magical draw to it, and I just can’t stay away very long. I don’t know if it’s the Tahoe National Forest that you can see all around it, the mighty Yuba River that runs through it, the snow capped Sierra Nevada’s that rise above it, or the wonderful, creative people that fill it. Come check it out. See for yourself. Enjoy the journey.
Check back here often, as I will be sharing the beauty of the area I call home, my travels, and things that catch my eye. You can also go to my website and view/purchase images I’ve captured along my journey. https://11eleven.shootproof.com/
