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 about working together.
ERIN CEBULA | Leo nominated TV Host & producer, Emcee,Travel Writer & Content Creator At Blu Realty
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!
ALESHA HAYES | Business Development Coordinator at Indigenous Perspectives Society
Linda has the remarkable ability to see people in their best light and capture their essence in her images. Working with her is an experience I’ll never forget. Her fun collaborative personality and expert ability consistently deliver exceptional results. I see myself differently now and her photos continue to generate new opportunities for me. I am looking forward to working with her again!
SUSAN OUBARI | Spiritual Life Coach, Reiki Master & Breathwork Healer
I had a gut feeling when I met Linda that she was going to be the next big thing in portrait photography. When I saw her work online, it confirmed that she had "the eye". The eye I knew so well from many years working in the fashion industry. My portraits are not only working for me, they ARE me - the key to my soul, the first impression to prospective clients. More importantly, they invite people to trust me. That was our goal and what is happening. Thank you Linda for creating images that authentically represent me and what I do!
KEVIN NEWMAN | Emmy Award Winning News Anchor, Journalist & Author
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.
CARMEN CRUZ | On-Air Personality at C-Fox Radio
Linda is AMAZING! She's great at capturing who you truly are and does this in such a beautiful and comfortable way! I've been photographed but never one like this before! Casual, comfortable and most importantly, REAL. Linda is incredibly sweet, kind yet professional and makes her clients feel comfortable that helps bring out our personality in settings that a lot of us may not be used to. It can be a daunting but Linda makes it fun and easy!
JAMIE MUNRO | Videographer, Whisper Media
I loved Linda's style in capturing her subjects in a natural environment. I wanted photos that show my personality and what I do for a living and I love how my portraits feature me with my video equipment that communicates this without even saying anything. Linda is the go-to for business portraits! She has a way of capturing your personality which is essential for attracting your ideal clients.
ROBIN STICKLEY | Award winning Journalist, Reporter & Co-Host | Global News
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.
ANNE DREWA | News Anchor & Reporter, Global News
Thank you for taking so many beautiful pictures! Your 'lighting' is the best. It was such a pleasure to meet and work with you. I hope we have the chance to do it again!
NAFISSA SHIREEN | Host of Living Forward TV and Founder of Living Forward Business & Lifestyles Inc.
My experience working with Linda was wonderful! The images we shot together created a very high end brand image which led to an easy fee increase as well over 500 people to my newsletter list in just one month! Linda took time to understand me and my brand and had an accurate vision for what I wanted in my new photos. Every last detail was taken care of - the location, hair and makeup and an assistant to help with all the details was superb. I felt like a star for a day! And while the experience was first class, the end result of the images was even better. If you want to up-level your brand and create real quality results, then invest with Linda..she makes the process easy.
JIM PERKINS | President & Founder of Perkins Properties, Perkins Construction, Perkins Media & Entertainment & FairTradeWorks
I'm so busy on a daily basis that a photo shoot was the last thing I wanted to take time out for. But Linda removed the stress by arranging a stylist, was efficient in her meetings and shoot times, and kept me moving forward and comfortable throughout the shoot. Linda was tenacious and efficient and patient despite my multiple calls and business interruptions. Linda is a consummate professional and I now have a variety of images to use for my different businesses.
KATHRYN MANDELCORN | Money Coach, Money Coaches Canada
I’m not one who loves the camera but Linda made my experience so natural and effortless that I forgot the camera was even there. Linda’s energy during her shoots shines through in her work. She captures the personality and essence of her subjects through her calm presence and her innate ability to find the best light. Not only is Linda a talented photographer, she’s a warm and kind person, which is the type of person I enjoy working with.
ELIAS TOUFEXIS | Award Winning Film, TV & Video Game Actor
Linda's pictures continue to get me positive responses. She was so nice and friendly at the photo shoot that we've become actual friends!
WING PIDERMAN | Interactive Energy Healer, Soul Energy Healing
Linda is professional, passionate and made me feel very comfortable and at ease in front of a camera. I love my business portrait and receive so many compliments and attention on my website. Linda made me feel like I was a celebrity. The photo session with Linda was an amazing experience and I highly recommend her.
PAMELA THOMPSON | President & CEO, Creative Life Coaching Inc.
Linda made the process so relaxing and fun...I felt like a queen! I appreciated her comprehensive and professional approach. She took the time to learn more about me, my business, my brand and what I was looking for in photos and I loved her flexibility and ability to shoot both outdoors and in studio. I highly recommend Linda for photos that communicate your essence and speak to your ideal clients.
COLLEEN WYNIA | Holistic Energy Healer & Transformational Counsellor, HeartLink Consulting
Supporting my clients to attain a sense of freedom within themselves while resetting their internal emotional vibration is exactly my intention, so I loved how Linda captured this feeling in my portrait. Linda took time to learn about me and to suggest best colours that would match our desired result. I respect and adore Linda so this made working with Linda all the more real and enjoyable.
TREVOR TURNBULL | Founder & CEO, Linked Into Leads
Linda completely exceeded my expectations. She not only made me feel extremely comfortable throughout my shoot, I was impressed by her creative eye in choosing unique locations that resulted in amazing shots.

Linda did an excellent job at putting me at ease and making me feel comfortable and there were many great portraits to choose from. Linda is amazing at what she does and I highly recommend her!
MICHAEL MITCHELL | Award Winning Canadiana Singer,Songwriter & Storyteller
When looking for a photographer, I determined there was little that differentiated in their style. But when I saw Linda’s work, all other photographers immediately disappeared from consideration. Linda’s in a whole league of her own - her portraits invoke the feeling you’re sharing a special moment with her subject and that you’re connected and not simply viewing a two-dimensional image. We had a terrific shoot and I could not be happier with the results.
SUZKA | Violinist, Vocalist & Composer
Linda has an amazing gift to capture true personality and movement in her shots. She made me feel very relaxed and made sure I got the shots I needed to represent myself in a unique and stylish way!

Branding, especially when you are the face of your business is extremely important. I come from an industry where content is king and Linda helped me achieve a great professional image. Thanks Linda!

I'm really pleased with the professional portraits that Linda shot for me. Linda is fun to work with and put me at ease in front of the camera. She created a beautiful set of portraits that communicates well with my brand and lets my personality shine through. I’m proud to feature my new photos on my website and as my author photo in my book Integrated Investing.
LANA GILBERTSON |Senior VP, MNP
Linda was incredibly detail-oriented and professional and took the time to learn about me, my business and what I wanted to achieve. She exceeded my expectations by researching locations, selecting wardrobe and finding the best spots to shoot at each location and delivering a collection of varied images that I can use for my business and personal life.
THE REILLY-BLACKLAWS FAMILY
The family portraits by Linda are truly a family legacy. We really appreciated her process - getting to know us and what we wanted, her attention to detail and considerate preparation in addition to making it a fun shoot overall. Linda is so much more than a person with a camera - she creates amazing photos that capture personality. Linda is a remarkable photographer and exceeded our expectations. She is also now our dear friend!
THE ROBINDELL FAMILY
I was blown away when I first saw her work…I wanted to look that beautiful! More importantly, I saw her subjects' true personalities shone through, and that's what I wanted! I love my pictures. I love the versatility and ability to use different photos for different purposes. Linda cares so much and made me feel confident and comfortable. Even when my kids were grumpy, I knew she was getting great shots, and it made me feel so much better. If you want photos where your true personality shines through Linda is the photographer for you.
