All About Abbie
Hey there! My name is Abigail (Busing) Gouin. You can call me Abbie! I'm blessed to be married to a hard working welder named Jon who supports me in all that I do. I’m a mother to two handsome boys and a beautiful baby girl, and a bonus mom to two elementary school girls. I’ve always been an avid reader and a lover of all things antique, distressed and unique. I actually ran my first business selling antiques on Etsy in high school! I’m a self-taught yogi, an adventure seeker, and a passionate photographer. I love indie rock music, road trips, reading poetry and fiction, and taking care of my plants.
I am so blessed to be able to stay at home with my kids during the day, while running my photography business and capturing photos in the evenings and on the weekends. I am most passionate about photographing families and children. I also really enjoy fine art/nature photography. There’s something about getting out into nature with my Nikon in hand that just soothes my soul. You can check out some of my best nature photos and purchase prints here: https://archetypeimages.shootproof.com/gallery/nature-fine-art/
I've always had an "eye" for the camera, and in 2016 I started this business that I've been dreaming of forever. It's such an honor to capture the genuine smiles and the unforgettable moments in people's lives. Even more than that, it's a way for me to express my creativity and capture my own life in a way that I can share with the world.
As the name Archetype Images implies, I strive to create images in a unique and consistent way. My goal is always to put your personality on display, while staying true to my artistic style. I love to explore new places and photograph my subjects in interesting contexts. My favorite part of photographing people is capturing the true emotional connection between loved ones. I love using prompts to create compelling images that tell a story.
Each image I create tells a story, and I can't wait to tell yours!
