About

Hello, my name is Kim Lemaire, certified professional photographer and owner of Kim Lemaire Photography. I can never remember a time when I didn’t have a camera in my hand. Photography has been a lifelong passion of mine, and, along with my family, brings me great joy.

 

I want your images to be something you look at over and over again and make you smile and cry. Over the years, as a professional, I have photographed just about everything you can imagine. I have been blessed enough to work for top businesses, magazines, schools and non-profits. My ability to connect with people helps put my clients at ease and allows me to capture them in a more candid, natural, and journalistic light. I find beauty and bring out the best in whatever I shoot—whether it is a newborn, an expecting mother, a High School senior, a family, a bride and groom, a corporate event, or commercial shoots. I enjoy the process of styling your session, helping with wardrobe choices and planning every detail in order to create images that reflect you, your family, or your event.

 

I look forward to meeting you and creating lasting memories for you to cherish forever.

 

Client list includes: Tiffany & Co., AT&T Pebble Beach, Carmel Magazine, Monterey Peninsula Country Club, Make-a-Wish, Scheid Vineyards, Santa Catalina School, Kids Helping Kids, Letters From Katrina Book Project, Rising International, Westfield Mall, Monterey Bay Horsemanship and Therapeutic Center, and many more.

Photo Services

Weddings

My wedding photography captures all the details and emotions found in a wedding. I use my creativity and photojournalism skills to tell a story that will forever bring you back to that special day. Whether your wedding is a small, intimate nighttime ceremony or a large, once-in-a-lifetime marvel on the 18th green at Pebble Beach, brides and grooms have entrusted me with their special day.

Portraits

Portrait photography is what I most enjoy and what got me started in the craft so many years ago. Whether I am photographing a newborn, a pregnant mother, children, seniors, or a family, I infuse fun into my passion and creativity in order to capture images and create memories that will be treasured forever.

Events

My ability to make people feel comfortable and at ease allows me to photograph all different people at all different venues. Whether it is a barn dance or a black-tie event, I have the ability to capture the images that are the essence of your event. With a client list that ranges from Tiffany & Co. and Make-a-Wish to Santa Catalina School and the Monterey Peninsula Country Club, event coordinators trust my photojournalism skills to make sure every detail of the occasion is captured.

What they say

Dorene & Jason

We first met Kim when interviewing possible photographers for our wedding at Pebble Beach, CA. We instantly clicked. Kim had a kind and competent demeanor that made us feel very comfortable. She captured the essence of our wedding, and we are thrilled to have absolutely beautiful photographs of our special day to share with our daughter. Last month, we asked Kim to photograph my parent’s 45th wedding anniversary celebration. Again, we are delighted with the excellent results. Kim has an incredible eye for “the perfect shot” and we are so grateful to have her photographs of our most treasured moments. We certainly look forward to having her document future occasions for us!

Zulema & Jorge Romero

We've been going to Kim Lemaire for special life events and family pictures for 8 years now. We first used her photography services to document our wedding, and we were overjoyed with the results. She did an amazing job, not only capturing the standard family portraits but the small details that we had put so much thought into. The images truly captured the feelings and emotions of the day. 7 years later, she shot our baby's one year portraits as well as family pictures. It was fantastic working with her again, and she was able to make our child laugh like nobody else! :) The images are truly stunning and very natural.

Linda Cosmero

Kim's humor and kindness puts everyone at ease, especially children. With laughter Kim encourages children to freely express their true spirit. Kim is able to capture the pure beauty and essence of your child in a photo. In a world that moves too fast and children grow up too quickly, her photos of my son have been my greatest treasures.
