about me

Hi, I'm Jenya!

I'm a professional photographer based in Oakland, CA.

My obsession with animals started around age nine with my first cat, and after that I evolved into your classic horse-crazy teen. But it wasn't until I adopted a troubled rescue dog in 2009 that I launched into a dog training journey that has taken me places I never imagined. Marrying my love of dogs with my passion for photography is my favorite thing. I find it so rewarding to capture the essence of an animal's spirit and human-animal connection into images!

Besides photography, I train dogs, compete in dog sports, play drums, and bake.
