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.

It was a last hurrah of sorts — a cruise and then a week at the beach before they headed home up north for several months of snow. It was also a week filled with rainstorms that derailed our original plans, and so we met up on their last morning at Hammock Beach Resort for […]

When two sides of a family come together from three different states and there’s 100% chance of thunderstorms during the only time they can gather for their extended family photo session — you shoot the entire session on their front porch (which the builders clearly designed to be a mini outdoor photography studio). And you […]

Photographing babies is always a sweet way to spend a morning, but when the baby is your friends’ new addition, it’s doubly sweet. Or four times as sweet, now that there are four of them. His debut portrait session, on his one-month birthday, was simply perfect. The excited announcement of “I have a new baby […]

They came dressed perfectly for fall. The only problem was — at 90 degrees, the weather wasn’t quite cooperating with our idea of “fall.” There were murmurs that next fall, they would wear summer clothes for their portraits! (No, guys, you looked way too cute pretending the air was crisp and autumnal! And that fox […]

If this wetlands session looks vaguely familiar…it might be because we did almost the same shoot, almost exactly three years earlier, when these two were engaged and eagerly anticipating their life together. And then, last month, we did this session…with these two eagerly anticipating life with their soon-to-arrive little man. They didn’t bring their dog(s) […]

They wanted beach portraits — and although, as a photographer herself who knows all too well that we can’t control the weather during a shoot, she really hoped they would end up with a soft, pastel sunset and glassy-smooth water skimming along the beach and reflecting like a mirror. What we ended up with were her […]
