the Journal

I'm Sarah Leying: friend of God, photographer of marriage & family, and hopeless romantic. On this journal, I share my recent work, experiences, and personal journey with Jesus, art, heritage, and learning to capturing the nuance of Love and life in still photographs.

Welcome, and I hope you stay a while.

Downtown Raleigh Senior Session

Y’all, Sarah’s senior session was THE most fun.

Sarah and I first met all the way back when I was in 7th grade (so 2014? WHOA.), and we haven’t seen each other since then until her senior portrait session! How crazy is that?

Sarah, who will be heading off to Northeastern University in Boston come fall 2021, knew from the get-go that she wanted an urban setting for her senior photos, so we headed to downtown Raleigh and jumped right in. I seriously laughed SO much during this hour-long session, and I hope these photos make you smile as much as me!
