Is your pup the love of your life? Your best friend? Your soul dog? Your heart dog? Your constant companion? Is your dog a RockStar? A ham? Lover of the limelight? (loves the camera?) Is your dog your agility dog? Do you own performance dogs? Water dogs? Dock diving dogs? What FUN! Let’s meet.

Now how about this? Do you have a hard time getting a great photo of a black dog? A white dog? A moving too fast dog? Is your dog “afraid of cameras?” These are common photographic challenges Brenda has heard from dog owners. Brenda can help by documenting these forever memories of your dog for you.

And … when your beloved pet is nearing the end of life, Brenda is there for you too. After spending many many years in the helping professions prior, Brenda is able to handle all the emotions related to grief, loss and sadness. Sometimes owning a pet can be heartbreaking. Brenda Johima will gently and privately capture the last moments with your pet. 

Brenda Johima is here to help. She’s a dog and puppy photographer, currently based in paradise, on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. She’s mobile, will come to you to photograph your dog(s) on location (almost) anywhere.

She’s known to be gentle and loving with dogs, able to gain a trusting relationship quickly with your dog, as that’s key to capturing emotion and personality in pet images. Sessions are never forced and your dog always comes first.
