Hello. I’m Bangor, Maine pet 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 pet 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.

Pet Session

We love dogs, and they know it. We love them when they are brand new, full grown, or gray around the edges.
$ 125
  • This session is a one hour studio shoot. We strive to keep everything relaxed and easy going so that a dog can settle into the studio space and feel secure. When you call to book, we will discuss what to bring and what to expect from the shoot so both owner and dog are stress free.
  • Clients receive all their high resolution digital files in an online gallery for viewing and sharing. A copyright release for personal use only is included. While we do not set a guaranteed minimum or maximum number of images, most dogs oblige us with about ten keepers.
  • We reserve the right to include additional fees for travel, as well as special requests requiring substantial effort on our part.
  • Session fee is paid in full at time of booking to secure your date.

Angus and Ben – Pet Session

Some dogs just have the world by the tail.

Angus and Ben showed up at our Bangor studio in a shined up, sharp-looking, red Chevy truck; the kind of truck dogs dream about. Sporting a Santa hat and bandanas, these bounced into the house.

Usually it takes dogs, particularly two dogs, a few minutes to adjust to the studio. Not Angus and Ben. They came in, sniffed, and were ready to go to work posing for their portraits.

And that makes perfect sense.

Freyja, the Goddess of Love

I believe in love at first sight and self-fulfilling prophesies. Go ahead and call these two ideas hocus pocus, but before you do so, take a look at the images from Freyja’s portrait session.

5 Questions to Help you Decide if Professional Pet Portraits are Right for You

As a photographer, of course I believe in the importance of professional pet portraits but not for the reason you would probably guess.  I love the portraits I have, but it’s the ones I never had taken that have shown me just how special it is to have a portrait of a beloved pet.   

Life is busy.  Things happen.  For many of us, the thought never even crosses our minds.  I get it.  But if you’ve read this far, I bet you’re wondering if it’s time to think about portraits for your favorite furbaby.   

Here are some questions to help you decide.

Ruby’s Pet Portrait Session

From Boxer puppy to full grown beauty in a flash – Ruby’s Pet Portrait Session

Time flies and Miss Ruby is proof. Look at this gorgeous girl!

I swear it was only last week that her mum and dad brought her home to Bangor, a tiny Boxer puppy, all big feet and floppy. Visiting her for a good dose of puppy breath and cuteness was on my list of things to do. I swear. But it didn’t happen. Time got away from me. And now she is all grown up, nearly two years old.
