BE INSPIRED Session featuring |Jayme Lang

Tell us a bit about your approach to the work you do, your time in the business and a few personal facts about you.

I have been working with families and photographing weddings for almost 8 years. My approach is definitely very candid & documentary. I try not to give too much direction, especially with kids, and really find so much beauty in watching things unfold and happen naturally. I prefer to work with Natural light & love the challenge of a dark room with little light to work with. 

I reside just outside of Vancouver BC, am a wife & a mother of two little girls (with a little boy on the way). 

What makes you the most nervous during a session?

​I think the unpredictability makes me most nervous… Which funny enough is what I also love most. With families who have small children you never know how its going to go – Kids will be kids & honestly they will do what they want and you really can’t force them to do otherwise. This can be frustrating and nerve racking if you allow it to be, I often have to remind my self to let go and just work with it. 

 What about this session was most memorable?

​This location was perfect, the light was perfect, but more than that this family was so easy to work with. I think we all meet those people or have those clients that just feel so easy to work with & this family was definitely that for me. I walked away from that session feeling very fulfilled & also eager to edit! 

Were there any hurdles?​

The light for sure. Shooting at sunset is absolutely magic, but it also gives you a time crunch & doesn’t allow for slowing down. We basically had an hour to shoot & sometimes with kids a time constraint can be challenging. 

Your best photographer/session advice?

Just let go, be open to whatever and don’t go into a session with too much of an agenda. If you have a set plan you will probably walk away feeling disappointed (especially with kids). 

What is one goal for your business ?

​For 2019 I hope I get to continue to be invited into families lives & document them. I hope to photograph more real life family session, more perfectly imperfect sessions & really show families that Family portraits don’t have to be stiff uniform images. 

What gear was used to achieve these?

​I shot these images with a Nikon D750 & my 35mm lens. 

Any presets used or hand editing?

​I  have an old Tribe archipelago preset that I work off & have tweaked quite a bit. 


As a Vancouver, BC-based wedding, portrait, and family photographer, it’s my job to capture authentic, intimate moments. I don’t tell people how to pose or smile. I create environments where people can simply be themselves and express the way they truly feel.  I document the beauty in the lives people are leading, so they can see it for themselves—and never forget it. When I think about what makes me right for the job of recognizing and documenting the beauty in peoples’ lives, this is what comes to mind: First, I am a wife and mother of two little girls. I feel the significance and sacredness of family and children deeply. I am a voracious lover of art. I’m inspired by modern design. I know exactly when the natural light will give a photograph painterly texture. I’m attuned to beauty. My personal values and communication style are grounded in authenticity and genuineness. I think honesty is infectious. My clients can be real with me and it shows. Your life is a work of art. Sometimes you just need to give yourself the space to see it. If you work with me, that’s what I’ll give you: the space to express the raw, true, and real beauty that fills your life.
