About Me

Hi!  I’m Lauren, and I love photography.  I received my honours degree in Photography (HBFA) from the University of Victoria, back in the days of film.  It’s my passion to capture stories – stories of happy moments, fresh moments, shy moments, silly moments.

I believe that your family photos (yes, you!) can be works of art.  I believe that weddings are fabulous and romantic, and that you may never look so beautiful again, and so you should celebrate that with beautiful images.  I believe that natural light is the most flattering light, and that capturing ambient light is all part of telling the story.  I believe that life is full of wonderful moments that pass all too quickly, and we should celebrate that, too.

I love to shoot on-location, incorporating elements of your life into your photos. I work primarily in the Annapolis Valley, but am always happy to schedule sessions on the South Shore, or in the greater Halifax area.

Things I have done for a shot:

  • laid down on the ground, in long grass, during tick season (while seven months pregnant)
  • climbed a tree
  • boarded a boat
  • walked backwards up a mountain
  • said, “is that poison ivy?”
  • stood very still in an actual cloud of mosquitoes
  • driven very slowly while my assistant literally hangs out the window
  • stepped in deer poop
  • been pooped on, peed on, and spit-up on
  • whatever it takes

Shots I still want to get one day:

  • a rowboat shoot – gotta love those rowboat shoots
  • a sunny day, a sandy beach (Mexico, anyone?)
  • the one with the seagull/pigeon just perfectly walking/flying through the frame
  • four generations in one shoot (five, anyone?)
  • anything with sheep
  • those big fluffy, catch-em-on-your-tongue snowflakes are falling as we speak
  • a family full of masks
  • brides and chickens
  • anything with umbrellas (or bowties)
  • absolutely anything you can dream up


Welcome to Lauren Kaye Photography.


If you want to know more, you can visit me over at Sleeping Forest Studios, where I write about my life and family.  Hope to see you there!

I just took a look at some of your wedding shots and they are great! I am getting married to my fiance next summer (July 5 I think) in Annapolis Royal. I am wondering if you may be able to provide me with a rough estimate of your prices and possible availability for that weekend. If possible, if you could get back to me by tomorrow I would really appreciate it as I have a friend who is willing to shoot my wedding, but needs an answer from me by tomorrow evening (she is a professional photographer as well and has others asking).

Hi Lauren,
I’m wondering if you could email me some information about packages/pricing for an engagement session. I’m getting married in Vegas so won’t need a photographer for the wedding, but looking to do an engagement shoot sometime this fall on the South Shore.
