Lauren Hardy Photography was founded in 2014 however, Lauren’s career in photography actually started on the other side of the lens. She was only 15 years old when she entered and won a Canada-wide model-search contest. She beat out hundreds of other hopefuls to win a $100,000.00 contract with Toronto-based agency Sutherland Models/IMG Models in New York. Through this agency she has worked with renowned photographers world-wide.
“I’ve spent over 15 years in front of the camera. It wasn’t until the birth of my daughter that my need to be creative and document her life’s milestones made me step behind the lens.”
Lauren quickly became fascinated with the idea of capturing the emotions behind a perfect image. She started out experimenting with photographing her daughter and herself with self-portraiture, which she still loves to do. Then wanting to share her talents to capture special moments and life milestones for others led her to found Lauren Hardy Photography in 2014.
“My favourite part of a session is when I’m smiling behind the camera as much as my clients are in front of it!”
Since then, she has shot numerous weddings, engagement sessions, newborn sessions, family portraits, professional headshots, boudoir sessions, and even live birthing sessions. You can see her collection here.
Amanda L. Lundshog:
Lauren is one of the most talented and creative photographers I have had the pleasure working with. She always has great ideas and communicates clearly with her ideas and suggestions. She captures the perfect photograph and turns it into an absolute masterpiece.
Our son was only 6 days old when he had his photoshoot with Lauren. She was very thoughtful, talented and professional and my husband and I (and our newborn) were made to feel very comfortable during our photo session. She was able to get some amazing shots from our slightly uncooperative baby and was quick to upload and edit our images. You can tell she genuinely loves what she does. We look forward to having more special moments captured by Lauren in the future! Thanks again!
Jaime and I were extremely happy with every part of hiring Lauren to do our engagement photos. Her passion for photography is evident as she came up with many creative ideas and smiled behind the camera as much as we did in front of it. Post production was very fast and professional, with high quality digitals provided. Look no further, you found your photographer!
