ABOUT ME
    I have taken my 15 years of experience in the counseling world and implemented it into my photography and videos. I absolutely love capturing authentic moments and telling stories that matter through images. It is such a gift to connect with people emotionally and not just see them as a client, but instead as a human being who has a story to share through their eyes, their smile, their tears, and their happiness. Life is not about masking over the messy moments, it is about capturing the transformation that happens because of those messy moments.

    Capturing authentic happy moments is why I do this. There is no need to pose people when you know how to connect human to human.

    From the moment I met Linn, I knew she was different. I had never met someone who made me feel so seen and comfortable. You can tell that her life experience gives her a different view in how she sees others. I felt so confident in sharing my story with her and allowing her to capture it on camera. I am excited to work with her again.

    A Deep Dive with Linn Rivers
    My name is Linn Rivers and I am a multimedia director, photographer, cinematographer, and storyteller. My journey with Media was most definitely not linear and it took me quite a long time to find my path back to it. I started off in the movie industry and modeling when I was in my early 20's. It was absolutely a lot of fun, but I was also just a kid who didn't know anything about myself. I am a believer in divine intervention, and sure enough right about the time I was really getting ready to take off, something happened that snapped me out of the industry and really made me ask a lot of questions about who I am and what I want to show of myself in this world. The next ten plus years was filled with a lot of rough experiences, grieving, learning how to navigate the world and ultimately coming to a place in my life where I can look in the mirror and say, " I absolutely love the person I see". I experienced a lot of traumatic events as a child, lost the majority of my family before I was 15 including my mom, and then went on to lose many others in my life in my 20's including my partner who was diagnosed with the same cancer my mom died of. I went through my own healing process with all of it, really learned to understand the beauty of death, and the reality of how very little we can control in our lives. I had my own near death experiences, one in which was at the same time my partner had been diagnosed with colon cancer. All of these challenges could have taken me down, but instead I chose to learn from them and utilize them to become a much better version of myself. It was because of a lot of the events that happened around me, that I stepped into the holistic health field. I was a holistic nutritionist, massage therapist, Reiki practitioner, yoga instructor, spiritual counselor, and a Neuro-linguistic programmer. It wasn't until I was in my early 30's that I realized that the line of work I was in was not for me to do as a profession, but instead it was for me to learn more about myself, my body, illness, trauma, and instability in order to heal on levels that meant something to me. I have always been psychic since I was a child and received very clear messages from my Source, and as I really started to understand myself more, the messages were becoming more and more clear that it was time to step into doing what I love! It was a very confusing time for me, because I really did get caught up in the social mentality that we should be doing what we are good at and serving people in a very specific way. I was great at what I did. I am extremely intuitive and could really help people out in so many different ways, however I noticed that it was not lighting me up. It did not feel good to me to be doing what I was doing. It felt as though it was coming from a place of ego knowing that I was good and wanting people to change and grows in ways they were simply not ready to. So as I continued listening to what was coming through, I had this deep clarity that the most healing thing we can do for ourselves and one another is to do what we are passionate about. When we are doing what we love, not JUST what we are good at, we emanate a light that reaches far and wide for others to see and feel. That alone is life affirming. It didn't take me but a second to remember what lights me up. I was making movies on an old camcorder when I was in high school and very serious about directing. I remember getting so frustrated with my classmates who weren't taking it seriously because for me, it was a golden globe. Haha. I took photography for fun throughout the years and always wanted my camera on me. Everywhere I go, I see framed shots that I simply have to capture. I am a Leo with a very creative and active mind, so not having an outlet for it, left me stuck in a "feeling hopeless" mentality. I followed my intuition, paid attention to the synchronistic events in my life, and ended up in LA last year, which I never thought I would do. It didn't take very long before I was filming music videos for conscious musicians, filming projects for local businesses, working on the set of some amazing shows, including the L Word, and capturing pictures of some amazing models in ways that tell their story of how they got to where they are. I work with people who are showing up for themselves and doing the work to become a better version of themselves and sharing great energy with the world at large. Thanks to my background, overcoming challenges, illness, near death experiences, loss of many loved ones, identity issues, along with a list of other traumatic events, I am able to connect with people in ways that not just anyone is capable of doing. I see the world very differently from the majority of the population thanks to seeing things literally from outside this body and this world. The people I work with feel comfortable telling me about their stories and trust that I am the one person who will be able to tell their stories in a way that will really make a difference in their lives and allow others to heal on their own terms from hearing and seeing it too. There is so much more than just a pretty face and their is beauty in every face. When you see the story that goes along with the pictures of the people you see all around you, you allow yourself to soften and understand people from a completely different perspective. You realize that there is not one single way to view the world and the people in it. There is no black or white, right or wrong, or left or right. Our stories our unique and that is what should be expressed. That is what we should want to know when we are looking at a picture, and that is what I seek to do for the people I work with. When I am not taking pictures or working on films, you can find me out in the mountains climbing, on the water paddle boarding, at home reading with my dogs, or out in the middle of nowhere in complete silence. “It’s time you realized that you have something in you more powerful and miraculous than the things that affect you and make you dance like a puppet.” – Marcus Aurelius
