Portrait Photography | February 2024

The way of the flower 🌹

A Valentine's Day Photoshoot

Photography and post-processing: Dianne Dequino

Model, concept, and styling: Temitope Okunuga

I met this incredible human a month ago when I was shooting for the PACE cultural evening fashion show. We immediately clicked and knew we had to schedule a photoshoot session asap—our version of a play date!

We did this Valentine shoot in a little indoor garden in the middle of snowy Winnipeg. Despite the outside gloom, we felt so sunny, vibrant and inspired. Tope re-sparked my love of portrait photography, and he said the comfort and vision I brought to the shoot reminded him of just how much he loved to model. There was no shortage of creative outlets for me this past month, and I am so happy with the amount of artistic fulfillment flowing through my body right now.


Happy Valentine's Day!
