Posted on April 13th, 2020 in Our Family, Uncategorized by Gabe Fredericks

Here at Philip Gabriel, we are a big family. We wanted to take this time to introduce you to all the people that make your wedding day, commercial projects, family photos, and every other photo shoot absolutely perfect! Today you get to meet the woman that has been our biggest supporter and now our financial wizard, Dawn Fredericks. As Gabe’s wife Dawn’s role at Philip Gabriel expands way beyond her financial duties in the office. She is forever married to this company and is along to celebrate all of the highs and push us through all of the lows. Let’s here what she had to say when asked about all of her deep dark secrets!

1: How did you get started in photography?

Well I used to be a hairstylist but Gabe just required too much babysitting so here I am….. I wouldn’t change it for the world!  Working with your husband (Gabe Fredericks) can be interesting but being involved together in things outside our home life is truly amazing!

2: If you could go to any concert past or present, what would it be? 

I have been to such an eclectic array of concerts and truly loved them all but I think my all-time fave was Eric Clapton & Billy Joel. Hands down my favorite performance but then again when I was in high school I saw some pretty amazing rap performers too, I loved me some Biggie and Tupac, did I mention country is a love of mine too?  Ya see where I’m going with this?! I can’t choose cause I like it all!

3: What’s one thing that you can’t live without?

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!  Wait was I supposed to say my husband, kids and dog?  Ok, coffee and the dog!

4: What would your dream photoshoot be?

Well, being married to Gabe I got to be his model in the creation of his first baby, Philip Gabriel Photography and had so much fun with that!  I’d say something glamourous like that probably! 

5: What is one skill that you wish you had?

Always having the perfect and witty thing to say.

6: Do you believe in the Loch Ness Monster? Why? Why not?

Never cared too much to find out if he was real or not because I was always too afraid of Freddy Krueger being under my bed and the Loch Ness Monster was all the way around the world stuck in a pond.  See what I’m saying!?

7: How do you decompress?

Reading!  Most definitely reading!

8: What food are you proudest to be able to cook?

Hmmmmmmmm… I bake some pretty mean chocolate chip cookies but the way to my husband’s heart is always my gravy & meatballs!

9: Where does the perfect road trip take you? 

To serenity……..

10: What kind of cake do you want to eat right now? 

ANY cake would be good for me right now!  I try to eat healthy so I don’t eat it all that often but man I could do some serious damage to some Strawberry Shortcake right now!  My favorite but it has to be from The Comet Diner in East Lansdowne!!!! Just trust me and get one for YOURSELF!!!!!

11: What are your pets’ names? If you don’t have a pet what would you name one?

Bear… the world’s best dog ever!!!! 

12: Why do you love working for PGP?

Because I can yell at the boss and not get fired!!!!!
