legacy portraits

LAURA YANG

I've
always been
storyteller.

But I never set out to be a photographer. I was (and still am!) going to be a writer. And then as I worked toward that writing goal, someone put a camera in my hand and asked me to try telling stories with something besides words. So with an English nerd's love for character and tone, a romantic's love for poignant beauty, and a realist's love for imperfection, I dove in.

I've
always been a
story-teller.

That was back in 2010.

Since that time, photography has changed much of my life. It's brought me some of my dearest friends. It's reshaped the way my husband Danny and I view serving others. It has even literally taken me around the world. One thing that hasn't changed: my soul-stirring desire to tell stories that feel so real you're sure you knew them before you heard them. Or saw them. It's my privilege to tell those stories for my clients, and for the generations of their families still to come.

Beautiful things can happen when you’re willing to brave the summer heat and humidity (and dragonfly-sized mosquitoes) for the sake of family portraits. That’s what we found out when we met up for portraits at Washington Oaks one evening last month. The boys kept telling us, “There are flies on me” — and by flies, […]

When a big extended family shows up with siblings and cousins and two sets of grandparents all in the mix, it makes for a really fun morning! This sweet family, on their annual summer beach vacation, came to me because their friends had just done a shoot with me when they were on their own […]

Because I’m a natural light portrait photographer, I prefer to schedule my outdoor portrait sessions during or close to golden hour — when the sunlight gets all warm and glowy as it dips low along the horizon. But not all sessions can take place during golden hour. Here’s what it typically looks like to shoot […]

I’m not entirely sure how this happened — I’ve lost count of the number of engagement sessions I’ve done at the beach, and I’ve shot over a dozen sunrise sessions in the past year, but somehow this was the very first time I’ve ever shot an engagement session, on the beach, as the sun rose. It. […]

We thought it was going to rain. Because, oh boy, it had been raining. All day. All week. Right up until about twenty minute before we were scheduled to shoot. So we drove down to the inlet, and we just hoped for the best so we could capture some family portraits and six-month-old baby photos during […]

Most families contacting me about beach portraits have the same question: where do we shoot? You may be thinking, come on — it’s Daytona Beach, there are quite literally tons of beach there! Why does it matter exactly where you do your portraits? Well, here are a few things I consider: Will there be a lot of […]
