hi there and welcome

Helllloooo! I’m Laurel, owner and creative director at Laurel Leaf Photography. I am a graduate of The University of Toronto with a degree in Art History and have almost 10 years of experience working as a professional photographer. I am married to my best friend Cam and together we spawned 2 miniature versions of ourselves; Cielle & Hudson are 10 & 7 and we think they are pretty rad. We love spending time together at our family cottage in Muskoka, going on RV adventures around Canada and skiing in the winter.

Being out in nature is our happy place.

about laurel

 

Most who know me will describe me as free-spirited, funny and eccentric. I like to laugh and have fun and accordingly when I look through the lens of my camera, I approach my art in the same way. You will feel at ease with me photographing you because I'm an open book; I will talk about anything and crack rude jokes with you and if you like to drop a good eff-bomb from time to time, you have come to the right place (but not in front of Grandma of course). I know how awkward it can feel to be in front of the camera because, you guys, modeling can be hard…trust me, I get it. However, when you are laughing and having a good time with your photographer, those shy feelings are forgotten and "the authentic you will shine through". Working as a photographer for almost a decade has taught me a lot about my craft, who I am as an artist and what I bring to the table creatively; good times & beautiful photographs of happy people.

client testimonial

“I can’t say enough good things about Laurel and her team. I recently got married and We
were lucky enough to have Laurel capture both our big day and engagement shoot
a year before, and she completely exceeded our expectations! She is incredibly
easy to work with and made us feel very comfortable, plus her work is
FANTASTIC! would highly recommend her photography services.”
