Thank you so much for the amazing opportunity to shoot with you. This has been such a transitional time in my life and to be able to mark it with such an incredible gift was just priceless. I can’t wait to do more with you. You are remarkable, uplifting, and powerful Linda McCarthy. This is your calling.
Wow… just WOW. You captured me beautifully. I’m so blessed to have had the opportunity to shoot with you.
I met Linda McCarthy in February 2017. She’s an amazing woman and photographer who has been crucial to my life in so many ways. Linda was looking to photograph dancers and a family member gave me her information. I hesitated to call her because I was in my 40’s recovering from an eating disorder…Being photographed was really stepping out of my comfort zone. When I contacted Linda, she asked me the age of “my dancer,” to which I responded, “I am the dancer” even if the whole time I felt unworthy of the title. The day of the shoot, I changed leotards a hundred times. When I walked into the studio, I was super nervous because I looked nothing like a dancer. I had put on weight and my moves were mediocre. Linda made me feel very comfortable and even beautiful. Although I couldn’t wait to see the images, I was a little afraid. When I saw the photos, I was floored. She had captured with her lens a beauty that I could not see with my own eyes. I now have a canvas in my living room that reminds me of that very moment. Linda and I would go on to build a bond of trust and friendship that allowed me to pose for her many other times, even for boudoir photos, which I love. I had to push away my fears and the results brought me closer to my recovery. I just like myself a little more now. Thank you Linda
