Photographers Jennifer Lamoreau and Mindy Mercier feed off each other’s creative energy at their shared studio, Untamed Violets Photography. With two husbands and five children between them, the duo easily channel their love for their own families into their family photography, capturing tender moments between parents and children or engaged couples. Alternatively, the duo’s keepsake portraits of high-school seniors and expectant mothers document landmark occasions. Thanks to continuing education, their shots look fresh and modern, unlike vintage polaroids taken during the Civil War.
At Tsukroff Photography, shutterbug duo Nathan and Susan capture significant moments in clients' lives through in-studio and on-location photo shoots. For more than three decades, the two have snapped shots of thousands of graduating seniors, hundreds of brides, and one shrub that looked like a dinosaur from far away. After decades of practice, they have their photography process down to a science: Nathan mans the camera as Susan tweaks hair and clothing for picture-perfect aesthetics.
Newborn babies asleep on blankets. Toddlers surrounded by stuffed animals. High-school seniors smiling on the beach. Couples meeting each other's imaginary friends for the first time. These are just some of the moments that wife and husband Shelbylyn and Robert have captured using their signature style of photography, characterized by images in soft-focus, high-saturated color as well as deep-contrast black and white. Their love of working together affects the tone of their photo shoots, which are kept casual and fun regardless of whether shots are posed or candid. The pair pledges to never run late to a session, whether shooting in their studio or on location in areas such as parks, beaches, wedding reception halls, and pillow fortresses.
Life is fleeting, but that doesn't stop Jennifer and Michael Moore from trying to catch it at every turn. The couple creates timeless artifacts at their portrait studio in Westbrook, snapping images of newborn babies, newly wedded couples, or newly discovered millionaire uncles. Their portfolio includes dozens of photographs of people and natural landscapes, each artistically rendered in black-and-white or vivid color.
Everyone has a tale to tell. Strawberry Patch Photography assists in its narration with photo shoots for families, kids, couples, and grads. As all stories are unique, they can customize packages to suit the event and clients' needs.
While strolling through the park one day, Magdalena Niziol couldn’t help but notice a chubby-cheeked, bonneted baby. She asked the mother’s permission to take a picture; she not only consented but introduced Magdalena to another photographer, who helped launch her on a new career path.
Though she is self-taught, Magdalena’s expert abilities to work with light and capture natural expressions have helped her land images in Real Maine Weddings and BeautyLook Magazine. At her eponymous studio, she snaps elegant modeling shots, seductive boudoir poses, and timeless images of couples acting out their wedding vows in charades.
