Karen was amazing to work with. She's so down to earth that I was completely at ease within only a few minutes. If anyone had ever told me I would actually have fun participating in a boudoir session, I would have called them nuts. But I did. I really, really did.

Karen McKinnon is the Annie Leibovitz of Canada. I have worked with her both professionally and personally and whatever you dream your photographs can be, Karen will make them happen! I am constantly surprised by the photos she sees and manages to capture! Honestly, do yourselves a favor and try at some point to have yourself and your loved ones photographed by her. You will NOT regret it! More...

Karen has the ability to capture moments of truth and spontaneity more so than any other photographer I know or have worked with. She has amazing timing, wonderful skill and truly loves her work and her clients. I would recommend Karen to anyone who asks whether is is for promotional shots to family photos, to beginning of life portraits. She's da Bomb! More...

There are so many wonderful things I can say about Karen and her quality of work but one of the first things I ever noticed about Karen is her genuine ability to make people feel comfortable. Being a mother of 5 you can imagine how daunting the task of getting family photos can be. I never once felt overwhelmed with the process. Karen, and her lovely assistant Christine, made sure every fine detail was covered from start to finish. They even emailed me ideas and suggestions as to what our family should wear. During our photo shoot Karen was a dream with our whole family and knew exactly what to say to us to get us all relaxed and smiling naturally. It was as if she had been a good friend of the family forever. It was easy, fun and we have memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life. More...

So in love with my photos!!! I see myself in a whole new light. I've worked so hard to get where I am and to see hard work pay off, and have it captured by such an amazing photographer is the best gift I could ever give myself! I highly recommend that every woman do this, for them, to see themselves in a new light. To add self confidence and self love to their every day life! I will carry this session with me for the rest of my life as a memory and a reminder that I am worth every thing I put into myself to make myself a better person inside and out!
Karen and Christine's amazingly kind words were more than I could ever imagine they would say. So open and cheerful, encouraging, and really made the experience less daunting than I thought it would be!!

Karen, Christine and I connected late this past summer. I felt I had an instant connection with each of them in different ways. Karen reached out to me to do makeup for their annual boudoir marathon and of course there was no way I was going to pass that up. I decided to book a boudoir session with Karen very spur of the moment that same weekend. What was intended as a gift for someone else became something very valuable to me as well. The whole night before I was too nervous to even sleep but the nerves died down almost instantly as I walked through the door for my shoot. Karen is absolutely incredible at what she does. She made me feel so comfortable and beautiful and by the end of the shoot I wished she would just photograph me all day. My photos turned out stunning and not only is my fiance in love with them but so am I. Thank you so, so much you girls � for everything you do. More...

We have used Karen a couple of times for getting head shots and group photos of us and our staff. Each time we went into it feeling a bit nervous and maybe some a bit self conscious but very soon Karen would work her magic and we would find ourselves relaxing and laughing along with her. She is an amazing photographer but also possesses the ability to truly capture the unique person buried within us. More...

For anyone looking for a true value added experience I highly recommend Karen and the team at McKinnon Photography. Karen was professional, organized and available whenever I needed her. Her experience and expertise beyond the lens was invaluable. She was able to provide direction and advice on matters beyond individual shots; providing valuable guidance on usage, intent and personality. Her thorough consultation process saved us time and money by helping us focus our strategy, reducing wasted work. Most photographers can take a nice picture. Karen doesn’t just take pictures; she captures the soul of your business. More...

Karen was awesome! What stuck out the most to Chris and I was her knowledge of how to take the amazing and beautiful shots. From lighting and timing to angles and perspective she knew what she was doing and she worked aside her assistant with awesome chemistry and amazing flow. The photos will always be inspiring and fun to look at! Thank-you Karen and Staff-Kendra and Chris Ketch More...
