WHAT HAPPY CLIENTS ARE SAYING

I've had the pleasure of photographing some pretty cool people and to have played a part in their success.  

Here's what a few of my lovely clients had to say.

 

 

I loved the work Linda did for other people. It was very original and not the usual "headshot". I liked how Linda captured the person's essence. And after having my dog's pics done, I knew she was the one! Awesome. I am using them for my business, and the feedback has been fantastic. It's created a very high end brand image, which led to an easy fee increase, as well in the month of December alone, by using the images in an ad campaign, I added over 500 people to my newsletter list. I've never had this kind of opt-in success in such a short period! I had a wonderful experience working with Linda. I loved how I was taken care of from start to finish. By taking the time to really understand me, my brand, and who I am, I felt that Linda really had a vision for what the photos would look like and knew me better than me. And then every last detail was taken care of, from the location scout, to my hair and makeup and having an assistant on hand to help with all the small details was superb. I felt like a movie star for a day! And of course while the experience (which I am all about!!!) was first class, the end result of the images was even better. If you are looking to up-level your brand and want a quality outcome, then invest with Linda. She will make the process easy, she takes away any awkwardness you may feel during the shoot and creates a relaxed atmosphere, and take advantage of the pre-photoshoot time she spends with you, it's golden, and it's where she digs deep to find your gold, and then captures it perfectly.

I loved working with Linda because she's very relaxed and fun to work with, but she's also very hard working. You know that you are going to get some creative and interesting shots, but you also know that she is going to help you find the best you!

Linda's easy going style and clear vision translate into breathtaking photos. She is a creative, consummate professional and a very kind soul. Her photographs have been bringing out the best me since 2006 and I truly enjoyed every minute of it!

ERIN CEBULA | Celebrity Reporter and Host | ET Canada

 

When I decided to invest in a professional headshot, I reached out to my network in Vancouver for recommendations. Linda's name kept coming up and her portfolio of work was more than enough to convince me that she was capable of meeting my expectations. Now reflecting back on my experience of working with Linda, she completely exceeded my expectations. She not only made me feel extremely comfortable throughout the long day, I was also impressed by her creative eye in spotting unique locations that resulted in amazing shots. In the end, I not only ended up with a headshot, I received a full portfolio of professional photos that reflect the professional image I needed to attract the ideal clients and partners for my business.

I know Linda from her chiropractor's office and was inspired by her photography work on Facebook. The best compliment was that my photos capture my joy and essence...which was exactly my original intention. I had an excellent experience with Linda. I appreciate that she listened to what I asked for (fun and getting more direction from her) and she totally delivered. Linda was really easy and fun to work with, reasonably priced (maybe too reasonable!), and she would see how happy I am with my photos. I think they speak for themselves. I had a wonderful time working with her and I look forward to more adventures in the future!

I loved Linda's style for how she captured her subjects in a very natural environment. I've had photos taken before in a studio setting and I was looking for photos that showcased both my personality and what I do for a living. Linda was great for this! My portraits are ideal for sending event organizers and anytime I need a picture to go with a bio. I love how the portraits feature myself with my video camera and equipment, since this visually cues people to what I do without even saying anything. I loved the number of photos we got for my portraits - there were so many to choose from! Your eye for various angles and spots to capture the portraits was very helpful. If you are looking for someone to capture portraits to use for your business Linda is the one to go to! She has a way of capturing your personality in a photo, and this is essential for attracting the right type of clients.  I had an excellent experience with Linda and am super happy to have my portraits - they will last for a while too!

JAMIE MUNRO | Videographer, Whisper Media

Linda is a talented lady and her passion for creating images that truly capture her client is extremely important to her. We had a great time outdoors doing the shoot and I loved how after all the 90+ shots, the one we liked most for my business card and social media was when she captured me unsuspectingly looking upwards. It was the only image of this angle/nature. When I showed a handful of my closest peeps they commented on how my essence and sense of freedom is portrayed. Supporting my clients to attain that sense of freedom within themselves while resetting their internal emotional vibration is exactly my intention, so I loved how Linda captured this image. Linda took time to find out about me as a person, how I prefer being outdoors in natural surrounds, and she was able to suggest best colours for the shoot to match our desired result. The second photo I chose for a headshot was a near full body image. Because of the high quality of her images, we were able to scale to a headshot size, using this second photo as my more professional image. I respect and adore Linda as a person, a woman of heart who treasures her family, so this made working with Linda all the more real and enjoyable. Thank you Linda for the wonderful images to brand myself – I am impressed!

From the moment I met Linda, I had a gut feeling she was going to be the next big thing in portrait photography. Not only was she just a really authentically nice person, she also appeared to be professional in that she asked the right questions and took the time to listen to me with genuine interest. Then I saw her work online and it confirmed that I had not been wrong about her. Linda had "the eye"... That eye that I knew so well since I had spent the last twenty years working in the fashion business in Milan and Paris, notably as a fashion photographer agent and an art director in fashion magazines including Harper's Bazaar and Italian Vogue. My portraits are not only working for me, they ARE me. How could I have a photo of me that doesn't represent who I am? The photos that Linda took of me represent me perfectly. They are the key to my soul, the door to my inner self, the first impression I make when a prospective client does a Google search on me. The portraits that she took of me have been highly praised by friends and professionals in the fashion business. But most importantly for me, they have allowed others to trust me because that's what Linda and I wanted. Our intention was to be able to connect with the viewer through my photos and attract new clients. That was our goal and that is what is happening. I enjoyed Linda's relaxed demeanour prior to, during and after the shoot. I was so nervous despite my experience in the field, however Linda knew how to boost my confidence by asking me to send her visual ideas of how I wanted the portraits to look, inspirations for poses, hair, makeup, etc. During the shoot she made me feel comfortable and at ease. In the end I had so much fun that I didn't want it to stop!

I was referred to Linda by a friend who had a great experience with her photography for business. I also felt that the photo samples on her website showed that she had a great eye and sense of colour. We are very happy with our portraits, and had lots of good options to choose from for our website. 

Linda was  were prompt, professional and organized, and willing to listen to what we needed, while giving good recommendations. SheLinda did a great job, and captured some really beautiful colour in our photos.

I have been photographed multiple times in my career in journalism, but Linda's work stands out as the most creative, flattering, and enduring. She was able to put me completely at ease, and her work is still what I turn to when I am asked to supply a professional portrait. She was able to capture the 'real' me as no one else has.

I needed a new fresh set of photos for work and the ones Linda took are great! I look way better in them that IRL, lol. But seriously, they are excellent, high quality portraits. I had an excellent experience that was relaxed, friendly, professional, easy.  Great photographer. Great photos. Great experience! Plus you know how to work a good angle ;)

Linda made me feel like I was a celebrity. The photo session with Linda was an amazing experience and I highly recommend her.

I was connected with Linda for a project, shooting for Assignment Fashion and TV Week. I still use my photos regularly... love them, my experience with Linda was excellent. I felt totally comfortable and at ease, felt really at home with Linda. It'll be a wonderful day... highly highly recommend Linda.

I got to spend a lovely afternoon with Linda. It is great to have fresh new professional portraits that really capture the essence of who I am and I felt totally relaxed and it shows in my portraits. Linda's extensive expertise and her love of people make it very easy to relax and enjoy the experience. Linda makes a potential daunting task really fun.

I met Linda at a business networking event, and I was struck by the natural appeal of the photos she displayed. She seemed to capture the essence & energy of the people she photographed. I saw not one photo that appeared too contrived or "stock". The life in her photos is what drew me.  My portraits are working beautifully. I use them in promotional materials, social media and many more places. People have commented that my photos make me seem very approachable - which is definitely something I want to encourage! She made it all so easy! I'm not someone who enjoys having my picture taken at the best of times, so I was a little nervous about the idea of a formal photo shoot. She let me pick a location that I LOVE and feel very comfortable in, choose a make-up artist who made me look great, and gave me directions that were easy to follow as she took the photos. It was easy, fun and the photos are fantastic! Efficient, professional, and the photos are great. You don't have to think about it. Just do it.

I am absolutely thrilled with the corporate head shots that Linda produced for me. She came highly recommended by a few friends who had used her who were very pleased with the results. I researched a lot of photographers before choosing Linda and am so happy I found her! Her work is incredibly professional - she is warm, friendly and very talented. I was very comfortable with Linda immediately and she chose locations that really fit my vision for the shoot. The results were so many great photos, it was hard to choose only a few! I would highly recommend Linda for corporate head shots and publicity. She is a dream to work with and produces the results you're looking for.

Linda is tenacious and organized. I'm so busy on a daily basis that a corporate photo shoot was the last thing I wanted to take time out for but Linda removed the stress by arranging make up and a stylist. She was efficient in her meetings and shoot times and kept me moving forward. She was also very patient at the shoot and understood my multiple phone calls and business interruptions. She ensured I was comfortable and kept me working with the lens. To sum it up: Linda is a consummate professional. Linda's shoot produced many different images that we'll be using for everything from magazine articles to corporate website biographies.

I have worked with Linda for both family portraits and publicity portraits for my business. In both environments Linda was a pleasure to work with. I am not one who loves the camera (actually, I dislike it immensely) but Linda made the experience so natural and effortless that after a few minutes I forgot the camera was there. The energy that she provides during the shoot definitely shows in the final product. She is able to capture the personality and essence of her subjects through her calm presence. She has an amazing ability to find the right light in a natural setting, and not only is Linda a talented photographer, but she is also a warm and kind person, which is the type of person I like to work with.

KATHRYN MANDELCORN | Money Coach, Money Coaches Canada

Linda is a professional in her field... creative, energetic, enthusiastic and competent. Her product is fantastic and she is a pleasure to work with! I can highly recommend her!

JOHN LUTRIN | Executive VP, Financial Hub (Pty) Ltd.

I chose Linda to do portraits of me for my real estate branding. She did an excellent job at putting me at ease and making me feel comfortable. We had a hard time picking the final picture as there were so many great ones to choose from. She is amazing at what she does and I would highly recommend her services.

We stumbled across Linda's portfolio and really liked the natural look of her portrait shots. We did not  want the typical corporate headshot, and therefore, found her work refreshing. Our portraits are great, no complaints. Linda and her team were very flexible with last minute schedule changes and made each participant feel comfortable in front of the camera (a hard thing to do!). After the shoot, we were provided with an abundance of shots to choose from which was helpful. Most importantly, everyone was happy with the final selections! Linda will spend as much or as little time with you as desired but either way, you are guaranteed to be happy with you photographs. She is a lot of fun to work with, I would not hesitate to recommend her services.

ERIN O'TOOLE | NOVAGOLD Resources

Linda's a natural...she knows how to find that special magic and soul in her photography. She's very easy going and knows how to create a relaxed environment and make her clients shine (not literally!). Working with Linda was a great experience!  Highly recommended!!

Linda has an ability to capture the light in people - there's a quality of light to her photos that you don't often find. I feel so lucky to have great moments captured forever. She always manages to make it feel relaxed and casual so that we don't morph into robot faces :) She is such a pleasure to work with it makes it effortless. Linda will never disappoint you and you will end up with vivid, heavenly lit photographs that will ALWAYS make the subjects look almost other worldly in terms of vividness… not in terms of doctoring the photos.

THE LOFTUS-DOYLE FAMILY


I have seen lots of Linda's work in the past and knew she would get it right. The photos were wonderful. The mood of the day was captured beautifully and we love the photos. The editing of the photos and the use of shallow depth of field were pretty cool. Go have a chat with Linda. See what she's about and check out the gorgeous photos she's taken in the past.

Linda's calibre of work, professionalism and accommodating nature are a refreshing combination of attributes. One of the most gratifying aspects of editorial art direction is sourcing the right talent and realizing visual outcomes together. Her ability to put the subject at ease and capture the moment is innate. A consummate professional - one I would highly recommend.
