Hi! My name is Gabi, short for Gabrielle. I began working for Kathy a few weeks ago, and we decided that it’s time the world knew! How does this pertain to you? Well, you’ll probably come in contact with me in a few situations.  You may see me at photo sessions as well. Really, I am Kathy’s left-hand (wo)man, and I do lots of behind-the-scenes work, that you may not even take into account.

Your invoice you receive? That’s me.

Question about scheduling? Me again.

Updating this blog? Hi, that’s me.

Taking care of the office? Yup. I’m also a maid.


That said, it all began a few months ago. A friend of mine came in for portraits, on a particularly bad day. The printers weren’t working, everything was going wrong for Kathy. So, my friend told me that Kathy had been looking for an assistant. I emailed Kathy right away, explaining who I was, who I knew, and that I had heard she was looking for someone. We had an interview, and suddenly I had a job!

So, here are a few things about me:

I go to Maumee Valley. Between working and schoolwork, I play the French horn for Toledo Youth Symphony Orchestra. I also play piano, and guitar for fun, at least when I have time. I enjoy speaking English, Spanish, and a little bit of Russian, and Swedish when I can. I crochet little stuffed animals, along with things like scarves, hats, etc. In all of this mess, I have a pitbull who will kill you with kindness, Joker. One last thing about me, I love sweaters.

Congratulations, you’ve gotten this far without losing interest. Good for you. Lastly, this January, you will probably see me attached to Kathy’s hip. Why? My school has a program called Winterim. You can do a million different things for it, but Kathy and I have chosen that I will learn how to be a photographer and businesswoman, through Kathy’s mentoring.


I guess that’s all. I hope you’re excited to meet me, because I am excited to meet you!
