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.

What a year. What a year. Just like the year before it, for myself and so many people I know, there was a whole lot of hardship but even more beauty in 2017. My pictures didn’t capture the hardship — that went into my journal, and into long conversations with Danny and family and friends. […]

Whether you’re celebrating a white Christmas or powdery beaches are as close to snow as you’ll get to snow, we want to send you the very merriest, warmest wishes this Christmas! And no, we didn’t decide that Danny wasn’t cute enough to be included in these pictures — it’s just that George and I had […]

Whenever extended family comes together, it’s the perfect time for updated portraits. Even though juggling six kids under six for photos is, in the words of their own parents, like herding cats. Super funny, entertaining cats. This sweet family was so much fun to photograph in their grandparents’ backyard! In that magical moment, they were […]

We talked about the college Janvi hopes to attend, her love of writing, the next travel destination she’ll check off her list. And somehow, in the middle of all that, we found the time to create some stunning senior portraits as the sun peeked through the soft December mist. Gorgeous, girl! By the end of […]

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 […]
