I'm Jeannene, and I am the photographer behind JR Photography, LLC. I am a photographer, an animal lover, old school video game nerd, a lover of outdoors, and a fearless dork.

When I am not behind my lenses or knee deep in Adobe products, I enjoy rock climbing, swimming, winter sports and hiking with my husband and friends. I'm a mountains person, a lover of old Nintendo games, and a proud alumna of NC State University.

I’m a vegetarian and I LOVE to eat. I ascribe to the hobbit method of meal planning.


I love and adore my seniors most of all in my portrait business and specialize in them. What ties all of my work together is my core belief: you are important and radiant, and your quirks are the best thing about you. Plain and simple.

Many of you also know me as a commercial photographer - in that realm, I specialize in real estate, branding for small businesses, and food & beverage (which are pretty much my favorite things anyway).

I have had gallery appearances in 2010, 2012, and 2019 at the NC State Crafts Center, where I also teach photography workshops! Come join me sometime.
