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 overcoming these common challenges and documenting forever memories of your dog for you. As she says, it is her job to get that great image for you, and you and your dog just get to BE.
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.
phoDOGraphy is Brenda Johima’s FUN way of working with her love of dogs, puppies, the outdoors and her camera as a photographer.
In addition to her gift with dogs, Brenda holds a diploma in fine art and design, and ran a home-based graphic design business for over 10 years. That comes in handy for you, knowing she will professionally prepare your files for print and web upon completion. (and yes! you will receive some select image files to share on social media networks)

Although every canine photo client is unique, an average ballpark minimum cost estimate to budget for is $150.00 to $250.00 per *1-2 hour session plus the cost of at least one print, and those start at $79.00 (plus taxes) depending on the size. (*travel costs may or may not be added, depending on where you live. we will talk. often I am able to include travel costs where there are several dogs to photograph on the same day 🙂
I also have a special 1/2 day and full day rate for special projects, end of life sessions and events (things like agility, dog shows, dock diving and water dogs). Please ask.
What about equine? Horses? Yes! She’ll do that too. Cats? Feline? Yes! Livestock? Cattle> Yes. Alpaca? Happy to. Although photographing dogs is Brenda’s specialty, all kinds of pets, livestock and horses can be booked for photos at your location also.
