Urban Family Session at Walt Disney Concert Hall

Lovely Session with Dahlia and her beautiful family at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Urban shoots are so much fun. I really like the reflective backdrop of the concert hall. 074 LogoDahlia is the owner of Blow Angels where I get my hair done. I have gotten to know her really well.

Urban High School Senior Girl – Samantha Class of 2015

Sam had already picked out the venue for her senior session. The Lab Anti Mall and Camp in Costa Mesa which is known for its hipster urban vibe. Her Mother googled Lab Anti Mall and found photos from Kathryn LeBoye Photography taken of High School Seniors. She loved the images and set up an appointment for a consultation where we went over Sam’s wardrobe and set a date.

Chloe – Orange Children Photography

I have been photographing Chloe since she was five years old. That is what I love about my job is seeing children blossom before my very eyes. I enjoy working with Chloe’s Mom as she has such great taste in planning out Chloe’s wardrobe. Now that Chloe is 10 years old she has a say on what to wear for her photo shoots. She picked out the plaid shirt, jeans and boots. 007 LogodWe photographed at the Los Rios District in historical San Juan Capistrano. It is one of the oldest areas in California dating back to late 1700’s and early 1800’s. 034 Logo
