I feel truly blessed to be able to follow my dream of being a photographer. I absolutely LOVE what I do! From the time I picked up a camera, I was obsessed with taking pretty pictures. After 12 years, my focus has shifted… I have come to realize that one of the most important parts of my job is telling your story through my lens. If I’m photographing your wedding day, I focus on authentic, natural and real moments. If I’m photographing your senior pictures, your personality and inner beauty will shine through! These are the moments that you will forever cherish and remember. Welcome to the blog. I can’t wait for the opportunity to capture YOU and tell your story!
Meet Abi Gasper, Class of 2020 senior from Delavan High School. I loved getting to know this confident, easy going, bubbly, sweet, and beautiful girl!
I would also betcha $100 that if you asked her any fun facts about horses, she would know the answer! Abi is obsessed with horses to say the least! She recently told me that on a trip to Lexington, Kentucky, she went to Clairborne Farms with her family and had an amazing tour. (Clairborne Farms happens to be the final resting place of the great race horse, Secretariat) During their visit, one particular horse named Orb, walked out of his pasture for everyone to meet him and pet him. The tour guide asked the entire group, “Can anyone name the horse that this stallion has been the only one to beat?” Everyone was dead silent but Abi raised her hand and said the name, Zenyatta! The tour guide pointed towards her and said that she was correct. Amazing!!
This year, she is most looking forward to the school play…. especially, opening night. The entire cast and crew goes out to Steak n’ Shake afterwards and it’s a lot of fun! Her favorite teacher is Mr. Lutz and “he’s easy to talk to and fun to be around! I also love history class because I have always loved learning about history, especially my family’s”. Abi’s favorite school event is Carnival Kickoff! It takes place during a school day and a start to an intense six weeks. Everyone goes to the gym for a pep rally with anxious anticipation for that year’s theme. Each class picks a couple of people to send out to the floor and depending on that person’s speed, they get first dibs on an envelope that contains the theme for your entire c lass to follow. Following the pep rally, each class goes to one of their class sponsor rooms and they all brainstorm ideas. “We have come up with a lip sync, food booth, raffle items, and a Class King and Queen to run for Carnival Royalty!”
Abi participates in Drama Club, Track, Volleyball, Swim Team and Science Club. She also enjoys lifeguarding, babysitting, and youth group. Her hobbies include reading, drawing, writing, deer hunting, photography, model horse collecting, and spending time with her family, especially her dog!
I asked Abi to describe her “perfect day” and this is what she she said: “On my perfect day, I would sleep in until around 11:00 am and wake up to hear the soft patter of rain falling. I’d get out of bed and stay in my pajama’s, which would be an oversized t-shirt with fluffy pajama pants, and I would go and make myself a nice, hot cup of coffee. (About 89% creamer mixed in with complete black coffee is the perfect mixture!) I’d go and grab my book, whichever one I’d be reading, and go and get comfortable on the couch. I’d cover myself in a big, warm, fluffy blanket, and sit there all day reading… no one interrupting me, and my only movement being the turning of a page, the sip of coffee, or getting up to run back to my room to grab another book to read!”
Three things on Abi’s bucket list include 1. Study abroad 2. Travel the world 3. Own my own horse one day!
