- Barry Conway, Journalism instructor, Concordia University.
"The work you did was fantastic. I’m able to directly use a great deal of what you forwarded, with not much additional reading or research on my part. And a lot of what you sent puts numbers under what would otherwise just be my rhetoric, so thank you very much." - Timothy Taylor (for a research project)
"I can honestly say Ms. Fowles was was one of my favorite people to work with. She's insightful, dedicated, patient and extremely positive. Moreoever, she can write, a rare talent that is so important in making films. I relied on her enormously while she was working with us and she always came through with even more than I expected."

Thank you again for everything."

"Thank you for all your contributions to my dad’s celebration of life, your video and photos have made a huge impact on the experience for my family."
I LOVE them. I have tears in my eyes. It’s exactly what I wanted, I couldn’t ask for anything more. I’ve used many photographers in the past and I usually get maybe one or two photos that I like after an hour or two of shots ... I honestly like EVERY single photo. I’ll be asking you for photos for the rest of our lives that’s for sure!
I had a very positive experience with Mary. She took a huge selection of photos and I saw an incredible side of myself in them. I highly recommend her for bringing out the best that each person has to offer. Mary, you were such a lot of fun. It meant so much to me to find that that smile in myself again."
"I worked with Mary for headshots for my marketing platforms. We had a two hour photo shoot downtown and she delivered beyond my expectations. She is super talented and is growing in stature day by day."
- Dibin Jacob, Founder & CEO Enveetech Designers, Pro Headshot Session
My family booked a family portrait session with Mary. She is super patient and professional when working with my three kids. It is hard to get three boys (one is a toddler) to smile simultaneously but she managed to capture the perfect shot!
Thanks again for the wonderful experience Mary!
- Jessica Lowe, Family Session
Very professional and accommodating to schedules. Friendly service and quality results.
-D'Arcy Nolan, Professional Headshot Session
We met up with Mary on a beautiful spring day while the cherry blossoms were still out. Mary was fantastic from the start, even with me not following directions to the proper parking/ meet up spot, getting there late, wardrobe changes in the parking lot, a hyper active kid. Mary took it all in stride, she was pleasant, professional and always had a smile for us. I was impressed she was able to get my children to mostly listen and pose properly. Once I saw the photos, I was blown away, they are wonderful.
- Mary Ross, Family Session
"Mary, these are FANTASTIC!!! You are so very talented!"
- Kristin Mcilhenney, Professional headshot Session
"Your beautiful photos display your eye for beauty and grace. I think your strength is in portraits - you excel at capturing your subjects' personality in a relaxed and natural pose and setting. I like your core values and principles and mission statement with a humanitarian angle. A very strong portfolio. I would recommend your services to anyone I know."
- Kagan Goh, Filmmaker and Writer
"You've got a good eye and a good dash of understanding and humanity, very good ingredients for true expression."
"Mary is very passionate about photography and she was called upon to photograph a large range of circumstances and subjects, both children (ages 4-17) and adults. These photos were used in the school's social media, website and newsletters. One photo was included in a sponsored article in the Globe and Mail."
