Maternity Photography

I love it when there is a child involved in the maternity shoot. This is Ruby @ age two waiting to become a big sister. I like to focus in on the child and put everybody's hands on the belly.

At first Ruby was very shy of me. I love this one of her clinging to her Dad's leg. Very adorable.

Sweet Pea - Baby Photography

Natured inspired. Two different babies photographed within two weeks of each other. Mother saw the baby with the hat online & asked me to do the same photo for her. Not knowing at the time that baby was one of her high school friend's baby. Only afterwards did she discover that they had both hired me. Small world! We did have the sweet pea hat on her baby, Beck August (awesome name) but he did not like the hat. You can try to duplicate shoots but a baby has a different agenda & you go with their whims. Both really cute!

Kathryn LeBoye Photography Video - Baby Photography

My second video! A detail look in to one of my baby session. I love capturing those unique and fleeting moments. Each phase of development is an opportunity to capture enduring memories and important milestones in the first year of a baby's life. Come join me as I photograph adorable Cianna.

High School Senior & Family Holiday Portrait

Last year, I had a promotional card on a couple and their two dogs. I was very flattered to discover a woman held on to that card for a whole year because she loved that image so much and wanted me to duplicate it with her daughters & their dogs. We got together one fine Sunday afternoon to do a photo shoot for her daughter's high school senior portraits & a family portrait for their holiday cards. Here are some of my favorites.

This is the image that was duplicated. Very cute dogs. The dogs were the stars of the show as many people stopped to pet them.

Awesome shot of the feet! Adorable shoes and cute paws.

Dolce & Jack - Two adorable dogs!

Did a recent shoot of Jack & Dolce, two rescue dogs who now live a comfy life in Laguna Beach. Sweet labs that are now part of a nice family. Jack was very abused before and still has scars on his body. It is wonderful when people adopt rescued pets.

One Year Later

One year ago, I took photographs of Valerie documenting her life challenge with breast cancer. A year later she is cancer free. It made me very happy to photograph her a year later and capture these moments with her son. Valerie looks amazing!

Baby Claire - Newborn & Seven Months

I photographed Claire back in February and then again in August. I love seeing how a baby changes during the first year.

Here she is at seven months looking adorable in a tutu.

Very chic in pearls!
I used this rose rug for her newborn photos, too but now she is able to sit.

High School Seniors - Alecia

I love photographing milestones and High School Senior Portraits are so much fun. It is so nice to see a young person excited about their future. They have so many possibilities. Alecia and her Mom met me for a consultation which really helps me in planning a photo session. She surfs so I wanted to incorporate her love of surfing in to some of the photos. We decided to do a combination of urban & beach. Alecia's Mother wrote to me after viewing the proofs, "There are so many beautiful shots".

I love using brick walls & colored walls for fab backdrops. Hand placement is so important in photographs. I really work on creating a different look. I encourage the seniors to bring favorite jewelry and clothes. Alecia had 3 wardrobe changes.

Baby Photography - Adorable Cianna

These are the photos from my shoot with adorable Cianna for my new baby video, a sweet shoot with me talking about my craft and feedback from Cianna's Mom (their second shoot with me as Cianna is on my Baby Plan). The video is a rare behind the scenes look of the artist in action.

One of my favorite images of Cianna. I had these long strand pearls, flower headband and Cianna's Mother, Jane brought Cianna's vest & pearl bracelet for the shoot. A very chic baby!
I love when Mothers bring in things that belong to the baby like these angel wings, tutu and headband. I do have lots of tutus, decorative headbands but it is more special if these are part of the baby's life.

Cianna's beautiful Mother, Jane!
