I have a special place in my heart for the
Military Spouse magazine!
3 years ago , my infamous #flagbaby image graced the cover of their magazine!!! It was such an incredible honor and I love looking at the magazine all the time!
So, when the art director messaged me asking if I would be willing to photograph this years Coast Guard Military Spouse of the Year Stacy Bilodeau, who was living in Hawaii, the answer was an absolute YES!!!
Meeting Stacy and her incredible family, we spent two days together for two different shoots, and I saw just how well Stacy is representing not only the Coast Guard spouses, but all military spouses!
“As the mom of two kids, Stacy stays busy but her days are also filled with using her skills as a graphic designer to help out non-profit organizations that might otherwise be unable to afford a designer. With the rapid and flexible response requirements that a Coast Guard life demands, Stacy knows the importance of community and volunteers to make life better for Coast Guard families.
While she has a very long list of volunteer positions over the past decade, Stacy currently volunteers as the marketing manager for the Joint Spouses’ Conference, is a member of and supporting graphic designer for Stroller Warrior Pearl Harbor, a Girl Scout troop leader, ombudsman for CGC Galveston Island, and a graphic designer for Coast Guard related projects and friends/family.
“Empowering, connecting, uplifting, motivating, and strengthening military spouses is what is close to my heart,” says Stacy. “I want other military spouses to know they are not alone in this journey, even though some days it might feel that way.”
