I'm Linda Mackie, wife, mother, professional photographer and lover of children, animals and the earth.

I believe animals have much to teach us about compassion, trust and unconditional love.

The incredible diversity of all living creatures of the earth is a quiet reminder that we each belong here and deserve a wonderful life.

I photograph authentic and moving animal portraits that celebrate the life of our beloved critters and the special bond we share with them.

I am captivated by the inherent souls and distinctive personalities of animals and find myself compelled to capture that in each portrait I take, allowing their story to naturally shine through.

In addition to volunteering my time and talents to the BC SPCA, Critters of the Earth is another way that I can help animals by donating 10% from each paid portrait session to animal welfare organizations working in the field.

Apart from photographing animals, I also love to photograph compelling personality and branding portraits and imagery for business, publicity, editorial and commercial clients and capture beautiful life moments for families and couples.

I delight in bringing to the surface the beauty of authenticity and truth in my subjects and experience great personal joy in being gifted with the ability to share affecting visual stories of beautiful creatures, both human and animal. Visit Linda Mackie Photography to see more of my work.

Based in Victoria, BC, I live with my husband Michael and our little boy wonder Connor Boone. Our two little fur friends are kitty brothers Levi and Cosmo who delight and adore us everyday!
