This month I had the pleasure of gracing the cover of Dote Magazine! Justine and I have been meaning to work with Dote for quite some time now so I was ecstatic to find that the article we shot for got this seasons cover, and what a perfect setting too!

Dote Magazine - Life, Set Sail

Our setup was at Fieldstudy in Mission – if you are a Calgary local and have NOT visited Sarah’s shop yet, you must! It’s incredible in there and, yes, I need every single item in that shop.

The article (not written by myself), was onย slow livingย and I honestly couldn’t imagine a better setting or team to work with on this piece. Justine and I are always joking that I look better sitting down…hey, just embrace it right? And of course the Dote team along with the shop owner (Sarah) did a wonderful job of styling, not surprised one bit there.

I’m so pleased with how well this shoot went, and the amount of trust Dote had to just let Justine and I do our thing. We work quite differently than most teams as we work with film over digital about 95% of the time. Poses are slower and more intentional yet the whole process is over much quicker than digital. Plus, we have worked together for a solid two years now so we’ve got our own system when it comes to taking photos…truly blessed to work alongside that girl.

If you live in Calgary and want to pick up your own copy of the latest issue of Dote Magazine, be sure to grab one at any of these locations – and let me know what you think!
