Hello. I’m Bangor, Maine family photographer Ann James Joles, and I am the eye behind the camera here at Joles Photography.

I specialize in lifestyle portraiture focusing on babies, children, families, engagements, high school seniors and pets.
Have you Discovered the Joles Experience? 

Session FYI

At Joles Photography, we know that high quality professional portraits can be simple, affordable, and fun because we make that happen for our clients.

We are a 100% digital studio. You get all your hi-res digital images in an easy to view and share online gallery so that you can show your friends and family members, download the whole bunch, and print whatever you like. 

There are no prints to buy, no packages to study, and no pose limits.

Our prices are all-inclusive. This means that your session fee and digital images are all included in the one, affordable price.

We like to be stress free, and our portrait sessions are designed to be relaxed and fun. Offering both studio portraits and lifestyle image sessions, we have the flexibility to work with clients to create images they love and cherish for years to come.

Babies, families, high school seniors, engagement photos, you name it, are all covered under this all-inclusive fee.

Four generations of Myerowitz men

Time Flies – Myerowitz Family, part 2

There is a bit of history between the Joles family and the Myerowitz family. We owe these folks a great deal. I’ll get to that in a minute. I’ll start with the subject at hand: family portraits.

We first photographed the Myerowitz family during the Thanksgiving weekend in 2011. That was a wild day, full of laughter and a certain Sesame Street song, and the day’s importance was palpable. Gail knew we were capturing a small slice, a brief moment in the family’s story because life keeps rolling, building, and changing.

It’s all about the fairy tale – Kori and Dan – Engagement

Once upon a time, in a stable far, far away, there was a beautiful, auburn-haired girl who loved horses. She could ride, she could jump, and she could muck out a stall with a smile. One day, she met a handsome young man who loved horses, too. As luck would have it, he owned a ton of race horses. He took one look at that gorgeous, feisty ginger and knew he had found his true love and a crack stable hand. A few dozen times to the winner’s circle and a diamond ring later and they were engaged. A match made in heaven.

A Girl and her Pearls

What can I say about this child that isn’t adorably obvious? She’s not quite four months old yet, and watching her change and grow is marvelous. A blessing. She is really grinning now, not just grinning really, more like glowing. Honestly, she lit up the whole studio.

And, yes, that hair!

I love the hues and gentle edges in these images. All soft and sweet and snuggly. Like Ellie.

Sweetness.

To the Moon and Back!

To the Moon and Back. A phrase from a children’s book and quoted everywhere and absolutely indicative of how we feel about this bunch.

The County gave us a chilly and gray morning for the Estey family portrait session, but when you live in Northern Maine, you laugh in the face of nippy weather. And so we did. Bouncy grandchildren, happy parents, a good dog, a whole pile of cats, and a tremendous amount of love – that’s life at Grammie and Grampies’ house. What a wild and wonderful place to grow up!

Hope and Jim, to the moon and back.
