Tell us about your company or studio.
My name is Pascale Gadbois, I am the owner and principal at Gadbois Photography. My heaven on earth is the gorgeous town that hosted the 2010 winter Olympics, Whistler in Canada. I specialize in life moments. Capturing the human spirit whether for a special moment such as a wedding, empowering woman with maternity session, or celebrating the everyday special moments of family and little ones.
Because it's important. That is why I got into photography. I believe there is a need to capture life, in its purity, unplugged. I think documenting life’s milestones, adventures and sweet moments preserves those memories with a clarity that our minds sometimes can’t do on their own.
Why do you use AsukaBook?
The AsukaBook products have always made me feel proud to showcase and are the type of keepsakes I believe in. Providing an album that I myself would love to leave on my coffee table, it compliments my style, my decor, my look. It makes wedding albums and family books hip and cool again. Plus their over the top customer service and efficiency needs to be part of my services. Reliable, high-end quality and customer service that goes the distance.
My faves these days are the Zen Layflat EX for weddings and the Zen Layflat Hard cover for my families.
Any selling tips for other photographers?
I am a true believer in being yourself and driving your business with your heart and authenticity. With these core values at the heart of my business, I find it really easy to pass along my passion for the importance of preserving and investing into your keepsakes. I see them as family heirlooms and so once I communicate the level of passion and care I invest into my keepsakes, my clients see its value and believe in its worth.
What else should people know about you?
I first picked up a camera when I was 17, skiing on the National Ski Team around the world and wanted to document my travels so I could share my stories with my family and friends. This quickly became my outlet for creativity and for stepping away from an otherwise very demanding world. Gunning for the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics, I ended up with back injuries that forced me to take some time to heal. I sought out photography and enrolled into a private school, College Marsan, to learn everything I could about it and fell in love. In the end, I realized I couldn’t put my camera down and that my future would be looking through a lens not down a ski jump.
