Love songs should be sung loudly, off key and from the whole heart. Wedding vows should be passionate with a sprinkle of humor and be recited like there is no one else in the room. Everyone needs to be met at the door by a furry four legged friend. Weekends are for friends gathered around a table, laughing and eating great food. Traditions are meant to be embraced but built upon, forging your own path and making new memories. Family will always be everything. Summers are for beaches and winters for hot cocoa around a fire with those loved ones you call your tribe.
My name really does have an é in it. Making the pronunciation "juh-NAY."
Yep, that hair is all natural curl.
My favorite days growing up were with my Grandma. Her drinking her chilled Diet Coke in a tall glass bottle while watching Wheel of Fortune. Still one of my favorite TV shows to watch with my own children!
I have an undergrad degree in Speech-Language Pathology and absolutely loved working with children in the elementary schools! But when it came time to continue with my education my desire to be an Entrepreneur and my Artist side won! I attended the photography program at the Center for Digital Imaging Arts through Boston University 2011-2013.
I love Lindt dark chocolate, fluffy animals and Netflix.
Growing up, I couldn't wait to be a Wife and a Mama. I got married when I was 19 years old to my college sweetheart. Three kids and 17 years in, it is still the best decision I've ever made!
I am located in Attleboro, MA and have a dedicated space in my home for Studio/Newborn sessions and gallery reveal experiences. I am available for travel to the surrounding areas for on-location sessions. I take weddings and portrait clients from the areas surrounding Boston, MA, Providence, RI to Newport, RI. Due to family commitments I do not book any sessions or weddings on Sundays.
I am classically trained through the Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University. I also attend multiple professional workshops throughout the year and am a member of PPA (Professional Photographers of America). Jenée Cook Photography is a licensed and insured business.
My wedding photography style is a mix of photojournalistic, documenting the day as-it-happens to formal; capturing those posed family heirloom portraits. My editing is clean, classic and I avoid the latest filter or passing photoshop trends. Your images will be seen for generations and should stand the test of time.
My stylized Newborn session themes can be customized with the colors and motif of your sweet baby's nursery. I was the first Newborn Photographer in Massachusetts to be certified through the AANPS (American Association of Newborn Photography Safety).
It is my goal to not just provide you with photos, but with an experience that starts a journey and relationship that lasts for a lifetime. From nuptials to newborns. To be there to give you the tissues when we view your images of your father walking you down the aisle. To laugh and glow with you when you return for your maternity session. Where I'm trusted to be your first venture out of your home after bringing your new sweet baby into the world. My job as your family's "for life" Photographer is to be included in your most cherished memories.
Each wedding or session brings out my "why" in life. I live to bring a happiness to others, to prove printed on paper how beautiful you are, to reaffirm over and over that you are loved. You experience that love as he gasps when he sees you for the first time at the ceremony, when tears fall during your vows or when as a new mama you snuggle that baby in close. I get to be there, for all of that. I get to show you that. To create an heirloom album that your children's children get to hold and see the way you lived. I couldn't ask for a more perfect "why" in life!
