Jayme has the ability to capture a moment in time like no other. Her use of light and the natural surroundings made our family photos more beautiful than I thought they could be. She can tell a story with no words, only pictures (although her written/spoken words are amazing too……). She is amazing to deal with while shooting and a true artist. The whole experience was wonderful and I can not wait to work with her more.

Our experience getting family photos done by Jayme was beyond wonderful. As a mother, bringing our two children (aged 1 and 3) had me feeling nervous: that they wouldn’t sit still, wouldn’t want to participate, etc. After Jayme took her first photo, my mind was at ease. She was just so relaxed and in her element and due to her peaceful nature, she rarely needed to give direction. She just let everyone interact naturally, and at most times we didn’t even notice she was taking pictures! Every moment was truly so enjoyable, stress-free, and fun! Thank you again, Jayme for capturing our family’s love, silliness and happiness so perfectly.

The most personable and warm photography experience we have had. The session was relaxed and natural, and the photos truly reflect our family. You don’t simply hire a photographer when you book with the Paper Deer; you start a relationship with an artist whom you will want to capture all of your most important moments. We have a fair amount of experience with photographers, and Jayme is hands down our favorite. Our sessions were relaxed and felt natural. The images Jayme caught really reflect our family, and her choice of locations for our sessions were perfect.

What Jayme, with the Paper Deer Photography, is able to capture in a family is session is pure perfection. Each image is truly an emotion captured in time. I will be forever grateful for the feelings that I will be able to hold on to because of her photos. Time seems to go by extra quick when you are a parent. These days it feels like my ‘babies’ are growing and learning and exploring new things every single day. It is so important to me to document each stage of their lives to create these lasting memories. Whether it be the toddler’s chubby, dirty-finger-nail hands grasping my cheeks or the one-year-old’s fingers in her mouth from the never ending teething going on in our lives, the ‘imperfection’ of each image is in fact, perfection. Thank you again, Jayme, for your sweet, playful patience with the kids and the beautiful images we will always have to look back on.

Our family photo shoot with Jayme went remarkably well, with two boys (3 and 4 years old) she managed to capture both their wild sides and their innocent, adventurous nature; things I feel like only a mother sees at times! Jayme was easy going and up for whatever and even managed to get some amazing shots with our loving puppy! The photos turned out far better than I could have imagined and I will cherish them forever! Thank you Jayme, you are a remarkable talent.

Words are hard when you are speechless! Jayme was so easy to work with in every step. Professional, punctual and extremely versatile. Our sessions were filled with laughter and silliness and were extremely comfortable and fun. She has a way of making you forget you’re being photographed while capturing candid moments. Jayme went above and beyond for us through the whole process. I cannot recommend her enough!!!

Love Jayme’s use of light in her images! Her photography always tells a story and portrays real emotions. She is fun, easy going, and creative! She did a super fabulous job of making my little kiddos feel comfortable. I loved how she sent me a sneak peek the next day! We all enjoyed our session very much and can’t wait until next fall to do it again!

I have been following Jayme Ford since I first moved to Red Deer. I knew that one day I had to work with her. Such gorgeous images, such life in every photo. Luckily, my dream came true. Being a photographer myself, I don’t get much of a chance to get in front of the camera often. I’m always behind it, and always subjecting others to my ideas. Before I knew it, it was my turn! For the first time in a long time (probably since our wedding a year and a half earlier), my husband and I got the chance to get back in front of the camera. I was nervous that I would get the chance to work with such an amazing person! Jayme was a dream, and our session was so much fun! She made us feel so at ease. Every little moment, perfectly captured. So beautiful. Very much “us”. Thank you so much for these moments. We love every single one of them.”

Jayme, you are one amazing talent! I hold our wedding day close to my heart, and I am very pleased that you were able to capture the beauty of it. A picture really does say a thousand words, but your photos of us leave me speechless, with a smile on my face! Thank you for being there to snap those memories for us!


I have always been in awe of the talent in this industry and to be included in some of my favourite magazines and blogs along side some of these amazing artists is an incredible honour. Here are a few of my recent publications:
