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. Hailing from his native Biddeford, Joe snaps studio and on-location shots, drawing on his knowledge of the area to scope out scenic backdrops and his degree from the Hallmark Institute of Photography to frame up memorable images. 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.
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. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People encourages subjects to arrive 15 minutes early to the shoot and offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.

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.
