If you read Fashion Canada you'll be familiar with their monthly It Girl section, featuring a prominent style influencer from a different Canadian city each month. We got to photograph Allison Pothier for the August issue. When we met Allison, we understood why she was selected for the It Girl feature right away. She is intelligent and stylish, a perfect combination in our books. At the end of the day we were left with a real challenge picking just one image for the feature. We've also been dying to share some bonus shots and now that the August issue is on the shelves we finally can!
Our goal was to get a portrait of Allison in the midst of her every day life. We decided to photograph at a couple of her favourite restaurants, EDNA and Lion & Bright. Although we were shooting in July, we wanted to have an end-of-summer to early-fall feel. The effortless Parisian inspired outfit Allison styled complimented this perfectly.
Most importantly, we wanted to make sure Allison had as much fun as us for this feature and that the photographs we took were true to her style and lovely personality. After all, she is the Halifax It Girl!
