I first met Kathryn 8 years ago when I asked her to photograph our then very young children as a gift for my wife. Those photographs, so cherished by our entire family are still prominently displayed in our living room as they capture the loving spirit and joy of our children. After that time we would often talk about contacting Kathryn to photograph our entire family...but as anyone with children know, years go by in a blink of an eye. Thank goodness, we didn't wait any longer and finally made the point to contact her again. We are so very glad we did! The personal touch and attention to detail she provides even prior to the photo session made it possible for us as a family to have a wonderful experience being photographed. We had such fun together as a family during the shoot and, combined with Kathryn's artistry, we again have photos that are absolutely cherished - they are beautiful! We will not wait so long to set-up our next session. We actively and highly recommend Kathryn. A sincere and heartfelt thank you for your expertise and caring ways.
Kathryn is incredible! We had her take some beach vacation photos of our family when we were visiting from Seattle. Her experience definitely shows - she knew exactly where and how to photograph us to get the absolute best images. We were a big group - 10 people, kids included - it was no easy task. I am so thankful to have found her! Now we have gorgeous photos to remember our trip! Additionally, I want to mention Kathryn's expert customer service and timeliness. She is a consummate professional. I highly recommend her!
Absolutely fantastic. I hired Kathryn because of her wonderful spirit, and I will rehire her because of her talent behind the lens. I had a wonderful day with her, and I am completely stoked about the photos she took. Highly recommended.
It's the first time we have had a photo shoot. Kathryn not only picked the best locations and our wardrobe but made us feel comfortable in the photo-shoot to make the results stunning and a natural representation of our love for each other.
For our twin daughters 6th birthday, we decided to go all out and take a trip to Disneyland. It had been several years since we had family photos done, so we decided to have some professional pictures taken while on vacation.
After many long hours of researching photographers in the Anaheim area, we stumbled upon Kathryn Leboye’s website. Words cannot express how honored we were that she agreed to photograph our family and capture this moment in time for us. Unfortunately, our daughter got sick the night before the shoot. I was worried the pictures might not turn out. Thankfully, Kathryn worked with us in getting some great shots of Clare. After looking at the pictures, you wouldn’t even know Clare was sick. Kathryn’s professionalism, impeccable attention to detail and caring nature shined through during our photography session. Kathryn’s pictures are timeless, artistic and simply put: gorgeous. If you are looking for a professional photographer with an impressive artisan quality, then Kathryn Leboye is for perfect fit for you.
Kathryn is an amazing photographer and is so passionate about her work. She has photographed my daughter Chloe four times and has always produced such wonderful photos. Kathryn is so friendly and Chloe always looks forward to getting her pictures taken. We also love the locations she suggests. We absolutely love her and look forward to our next session.
We highly recommend Kathryn as a photographer for any occasion. After doing a lot of research and speaking with several photographers, we selected Kathryn for her artistic style and outstanding service. We have been a proud client of Kathryn's for the last 6 years. She has a great ability to connect with our children to capture precious moments in the most natural settings. Kathryn has great attention to detail from helping you select the best shooting locations to making sure the natural light is just right, and she does it all effortlessly. Kathryn is a true pro!
Not only is Kathryn an exceptional photographer but she is one of the easiest people to work with. I have a whole wall in my home with family pictures that I owe to to her. She makes the process easy and painless. My kids even had fun on the photo shoot...that's saying a lot! You will not be disappointed if you choose to work with her!
Kathryn, you made me feel so comfortable during the whole shoot and it really shows in the pictures. People say they really reflect my personality. Such a great asset for me to have these pictures to show. Also, my sister and I had such a great time with you that day.
We had a lovely day with Kathryn capturing every detail of our daughter's shower. She was very organized and prepared, and made everyone feel comfortable when taking photos. Kathryn is very creative and original! Not only are the pictures beautiful but the proofs were prompt as promised and her service was top notch! Kathryn is attentive to every detail from the initial phone call to the packaging details and everything in between. I would use Kathryn again for any occasion. She is amazing!
For any photography needs, pick up the phone and call Kathryn LeBoye. She is knowledgeable, experienced, and has a passion for her art that will make your entire time spent with her fun and productive. With Kathryn, you get the triple combo necessary for truly great photos: technical skill, a wonderful sense of style, and a warm personality that will put you totally at ease in front of the camera. From that first conversation with Kathryn to the receipt of your final images, you can relax, knowing you're in the hands of a professional.
We are so happy and excited to have real family photos! Kathryn, you did an amazing job of capturing these beautiful images. I appreciate your patience and expertise and thoughtfulness. You made thie whole experience lots of fun!
Can't say enough about how great the whole experience with Kathryn was!! She helped with wardrobe, locations - even brought candy for my little dudes!! And with the variety of shots she took, we've now got GORGEOUS family photos that we get comments on all the time. THANK YOU KAT!!!!
I believe in God and angels, and that statement was confirmed when the photography-'gods' sent me to Kathryn LeBoye via her website! And here I thought it was purely accidental!!!! I was looking to capture my granddaughter's 1st visit to Grandma and Grandpa's So. California house in Laguna Beach. Her 1st visit to Disney Land was an awesome experience, 2 days prior to our photo shoot - but the real "magic" occurred on the beach when Kathryn captured images that literally took our breath away! The innocence and beauty of my 4-year-old granddaughter was captured perfectly ~ against a beautiful backdrop of sun whispering its good-bye to another perfect day. And she has a way of being sure that the entire family looks just the way we want ourselves to be portrayed, since the original intent was to get a group photo! None of us could find fault with ourselves or each other! And the extras -- special seconds in time with Grandma and Granddaughter-- and husband and wife- were endearing,and will be memorialized on our walls for years to come!! The WORST part of the experience was trying to pick out our favorite shots; they were ALL that good!
I would highly recommend Kathryn to anyone who wants to work with pure creativity and professionalism!

We have highly recommend you as a photographer to our friends and family. Your professionalism and creativeness has been outstanding. When we went to find a photographer for maternity pictures, we were drawn to your modern vision. There is a knack for bringing new ideas to the setting and you have it! It was this type of differentiating factor that lead us to reach out to you to do our maternity pictures and to capture the moments of our son's life. We greatly appreciate your flexibility and time that you have spent with all of our family in capturing the perfect picture! Your approach and willingness to listen to your client's ideas is much appreciated.
We have had nothing but compliments and praises on the pictures and announcements that you have done for us. When I first saw the pictures of our son, I got chills and had tears in my eyes -that is the ultimate compliment that we can give you. We are very grateful to have met you and to make you a part of our son's life as he grows.

To Whom It May Concern:
I recently had the absolute pleasure of working with Kathryn, and I can’t even begin to describe how incredible the experience was… and how please I am with the finished result.
I had been planning a vacation to Anaheim, California for my entire family for nearly a year. When I say my entire family I mean just that. My husband and I booked rooms through our timeshare for everyone in my immediate family (10 adults & 5 young children), and his immediate family (5 adults). When we decided that this trip was going to happen, I knew that I needed to set up an opportunity for family photos as my immediate family hadn’t been together as a whole in nearly 3 years. So needless to say, this photo shoot was very important to me!!
Luckily, I came across Kathryn LeBoye Photography. From the first e-mail response that I received back from Kathryn, I knew that I had to work with her!! She was prompt with responses to any questions I had, she was great with advice on how to optimize the photo shoot, and she introduced us to a beautiful secluded beach in Laguna Beach, California, that I would never have seen otherwise (the fact that her price was phenomenal was merely an added bonus). There was no point in time that I doubted my decision to work with Kathryn… and traveling down from Alberta and British Columbia (Canada), you would think that I would have some concerns. But Kathryn checked in with me when she said she was going to, re-confirmed everything prior to us departing on our vacation, and was more than ready to work with all of us when we arrived.
Once I met Kathryn all of my confidences in her only increased. She was able to shoot solo children, siblings, individual families as well as the large families with ease (she even brought candy for the children). At the end of the shoot when the sun was setting and all of the children were soaked from head to toe from playing in the water, she was even able to get a beautiful family portrait that I am looking forward to proudly displaying on my wall!! The photos speak for themselves… I couldn’t be more pleased with the results of our family photos!!
I would highly recommend anyone living in the Southern California area, or those planning to visit the area who wants an incredible experience and absolutely stunning photos done contact Kathryn, you will not be disappointed!!

Kathryn LeBoye Photography is your one stop shop for all your personal and/or professional pictures!
While doing some research online, I came across Kathryn LeBoye Photography who was conveniently located in Orange County. I noticed her creative eye and plethora of experience. We just had our first child and this is exactly what my husband and I was looking for! Her work spoke to us in a way that we knew she would be able to capture our daughters free sprit and personality. We wanted pictures that were unique and looked to be something that was straight out of a magazine.
I called Kathryn that day and was able to ask her all my questions about her pricing and her availability. I also let her know that I needed someone as soon as possible. During that conversation , she mentioned that she would send me a follow up email with a few package plans so I could go over them with my husband. It was nice to see that her prices were reasonable and she was available during the time we needed. We were able to book a three session plan and capture our daughter growing at 3 months, 10 months and 18 months!
What we love about Kathryn is that she is very talented for one! She is patient, sweet and understanding. She worked very well with our daughter and was very understanding when we needed to stop and take a break. During the first session I was still nursing and she made it very easy to stop during the shoot to nurse my daughter and make sure she was happy again. When my daughter fell asleep we were able to snap some of those wonderful sleeping pictures! Kathryn also had the idea to place our wedding bands around her toes and capture these beautiful pictures! My husband and I felt that it was a resemblance of us being one and how our love created such a beautiful miracle.
The second photo shoot we got some of our favorite pictures! Kathryn took her time with us and that is something that made us feel very comfortable. It turned out to be the best experience; I also loved the fact that I can share my ideas with Kathryn and she is able to recreate them, but also take it to the next level. I was able to bring pieces that could be used in the photo and Kathryn has things to contribute as well. She was able to take our accessories and hers to capture the perfect styled moment.
We would recommend anyone and everyone to use Kathryn LeBoye Photography. We have loved our experience with her over this past year and could not have asked for a better photographer. We look forward to working with Kathryn in the future for family pictures and more pictures of our child and future children to come. We have pictures that are priceless and will last us for a lifetime! Her work speaks for itself!
After viewing the newest photographs, Darcy said "Kathryn sure knows how to make a mother cry". We adore the photos you took.
Praise for Kathryn LeBoye:
I met Kathryn when I was in the midst of treatment for breast cancer. Based on inspiration I received from a book called “Turning Heads,” which is a compilation of portraits of women who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy, I hired Kathryn to produce portraits of me that would not only record the experience I was enduring at the time, but also serve as an empowering statement of strength and beauty in the midst of what many perceive as the worst time of their lives. The portraits she produced far exceeded my expectations. They are, in a word, gorgeous. I believe the quality of the photos is not just a testament of her skill as a photographer, but also a testament as to the quality of her character. At a time when I was very self conscious about my appearance, she put me completely at ease and the results speak for themselves.
A year or so later, after I had regained complete health, I hired Kathryn to take photos of me and my son for our annual holiday card. Again, the results were stunning. She chose the perfect location and helped keep my six year old son occupied enough to create some truly beautiful pictures of him alone and us together. I cannot recommend her any higher and will certainly work with her again in the future!
