Jennifer Whelan

I am a lifelong resident of Hull, Massachusetts. 

For as long as I can remember, I see beauty in unexpected places: the way light catches a flower or highlights a face. Life is so fleeting, I love how photography marks moments and history in time. The power to capture a moment for eternity is awesome, and I take it very seriously. 

My eye gravitates towards the nautical and floral, but I also enjoy taking photos at sporting and charity events, snapping up the joy of teams or families in portraits. Many people have a hard time liking photos of themselves, so it fills my heart when someone loves a photo I take of them. I often capture details and expressions others miss, finding the mundane and making it special. 

I launched my business Jennifer Lynne Photography last year to sell prints of my favorite captures on notecards, coasters, and framed.  I also sell high-quality gifts—from phone cases to pillows to mugs and shower curtains—on Redbubble Check out the Nantasket Beach shower curtain there. You won’t be disappointed.
I sell from my home studio as well as in local shops.

My proudest moment as a photographer? I spearheaded the Hull Front Steps Project that raised over $14,000 for our local food bank/social service agency, Wellspring. Organizing ten local photographers to take pictures of 200 families on their front steps during the Covid-19 Pandemic was no easy feat.  But this labor of love highlighted the power of photography. Beyond raising money, it connected people in our community during a difficult historic time when hope seemed lost.

I am a Juried Artist Member at the Sea & Sky Show at the Hull Lifesaving Museum as well as the Hull Artists Juried Member Show.

I shoot with a Nikon Digital SLR Camera D7200.

I am a singer, a wife to Greg, a mother of four (Lillian, Graham, Caleb, and Jonah) and an avid school volunteer. I am the Secretary of the New England Pandas/PANS Association. I also have a Master’s Degree in Speech-Language Pathology.  Photography is simply a different way to communicate.  And still amid all this, photography feeds my soul.

Got a photo idea in mind? A fantastic location with boats and buoys? Glorious peonies in bloom? An event you want to capture? Give me a call.
