- Erin portrait client

I cannot rate Erin Laye Photography enough – highly recommend! My family and I had such an incredible experience with Erin, from the initial phone consultation, to the first home visit where Erin helped us pick through closets to find a cohesive look and scouted our walls to find an ideal location for the final portrait, to the day of the shoot where everything, including hair/makeup and heading out on location went so smoothly, even with the kids! Erin is patient and organized, friendly yet professional and so knowledgeable in her craft. When the proofs were ready, Erin returned to our home and spent several hours going through them with us, helping us select our final images. We ended up buying way more of the shots than we had anticipated, but it was definitely worth it. Thank you so much for this amazing experience, Erin!


Erin is a wonderful photographer who makes you feel so comfortable... the end results are amazing.

- Michelle Portrait Client

Erin makes it simple to make choices from all the amazing photos shes taken. And to get incredible images from people who hate being in pictures - that is an art.

Enjoy your
Best portraits ever


the process

plan your dream shoot

We will review your beautiful images together at an in-person viewing appointment. The viewing appointment is usually scheduled within 2 weeks of the shoot date. At the appointment I will help you go through your images and choose your favourite. This is my favourite part of the whole experience - getting to see the excitement and emotion in my client's faces when they see their images is truly a reward! 

How long does a typical photo session last?

This totally depends on the type of session and my client's specific needs, however photo sessions can range between 1-3 hours, and for more extensive photo experiences up to a full day. This ensures that we have enough time and so that my clients don't feel rushed. 


I specialize in a variety of photography services, including headshots + branding, family photos, maternity, engagements, real estate, product photography and weddings. I have the skills and experience to capture special moments and create beautiful, lasting memories for my clients. Whether you're looking to update your professional headshot, capture precious family memories, or document one of the most important days of your life, I am committed to delivering high-quality images that you will treasure for years to come.
