Lauren Kaufmann is a commercial and editorial photographer and creator of fine art portraits. She opened a professional portrait studio in 2007 in Kingston, Ontario where she continues to offer a boutique portrait experience and commercial photography services to her community. She is a mother of two, a world traveler and former national and varsity athlete.
Lauren specializes in developing content for fashion and lifestyle brands, and on helping individuals find their path to confidence and self-worth. She is sought after for making an epic portrait experience attainable for the everyday woman and entrepreneur, and is known for her warm personality and eye for creative direction and movement. Lauren believes every image should stand strongly on its own while also contributing a complementary voice as part of a collection, in both the commercial world and in her private client work.
As an avid traveler, Lauren’s images are influenced as much by minimalism and meaningful conversation as they are by whimsical emotion and romance. With these influences, she seamlessly combines playful narratives with a timeless aesthetic for commercial media campaigns as well as private client portraits. Lauren has been featured in several magazines including Kingston Fine Lifestyles, Kingston Life Magazine, and is a Getty Image contributor.
With a teaching background, Lauren also offers a mentoring program to up and coming photographers and individuals looking to improve their craft. She looks forward to serving the Ottawa community and joining the Westboro Collective.
