About Joe

My name is Joe Kennaley and I am an award winning portrait photographer located just outside Boston in Peabody, Massachusetts.

I grew up in Nova Scotia Canada and studied portrait photography at NSCC Halifax and Holland College in Prince Edward Island. After Graduation I trained as a professional photographer at Pridhams Studio and Photography Flewwelling; two of Atlantic Canadas most successful portrait studios. 

In 1999 I moved to the United States and started my own small portrait studio in Beverly MA.  In January of 2020 I moved my studio to Lowell St, Peabody MA.  


Since beginning my photography career I have been lucky enough to have won numerous awards from leading Canadian and American Photography Associations.

Being recognized by peers in my industry is a huge honor.
