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.

When I photographed them a year ago, their littlest little man was only a couple months old, and their bigger little man wasn’t all that interested in his baby brother. This time, things were a little different! Littlest little man has learned how to run (and how to take a tumble), and bigger little man was right […]

When our friends’ family came to visit from out of town, there was just one morning we were able to sync our schedules with the sunrise, so we headed to the beach for some family portraits. The sunrise delivered. And our friends did, too. Another sweet session in the books! They don’t all look quite […]

Well, 2016 is almost a wrap. We’re down to the final handful of hours. This year overflowed with portrait sessions — families. Engagements. Newborns. Seniors. Equestrian. An editorial shoot. One vow renewal. One elopement. Two adoptions, one domestic and one halfway around the world. We photographed our family in July. We photographed ourselves as snowflakes fell on […]

You know what’s pretty great? When one of your past wedding couples move down the street from you, so you can hang out. And then they have the cutest baby. And then you shoot their Christmas photos in their adorably decorated yard. Christmas = magic. Even babies know that! Love that Woodstock photobomb in the […]

It’s the week of Christmas! And there’s a bunch of Christmas goodness coming to the blog this week, starting with this adorable family, glowing right alongside their Christmas lights as they celebrate their baby’s first Christmas! Do you love this? I just love this. He was having none of this Mom-and-Dad-kissing business. Thanks for making me […]

Last spring, I shared the story behind Legacy Portraits. But the story of how I became a photographer in the first place? That’s a story I’ve told over and over — but I’m honestly not sure if I’ve ever written it down. So here goes! My photography story starts in college, with a few flashbacks to my […]
