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.

Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props.

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.
Professional shutterbug Joe McKenney artfully captures families, children, and mothers-to-be, transposing ephemeral moments into future family heirlooms with retouching and photo-printing services.

Joe's lens snatches up the light given off by weddings, business portraits, and high school seniors, clicking feverishly through untimed photo sessions, unlimited outfit changes, and unimpeded werewolf transformations six days a week.
Maine Photo Booth Co. delivers fun in booth form anywhere in the state. Its booth of choice is the Model 12, a retro variety that produces images with enough quality to be approved for passport and ID pictures. The booth comes fully-assembled. The metal cabinet style booth appears old-fashioned looking on the outside while the inside is state-of-art with the latest digital technology. Visual and voice instructions guide guests as they pose and pout for a series of six pictures, which the booth slaps onto photo strips and spits out in 10 seconds or less. Maine Photo Booth’s rentals include an unlimited number of these strips in black and white or color, plus one flash drive for the renting party, so guests can share pictures online or frisbee them into a passing neighbor’s car. Since attendants take care of the setup and cleanup, guests need only worry about which celebrity’s smile they want to imitate.
