I hate to brag but…  yeah, they really said this stuff!



We highly recommend Holly at Brindleberry due to her compassion for both the pets and the people. Holly takes a special interest in educating herself on canine body language and communication to ensure everyone feels comfortable at each session.

She has a way of capturing special moments and she adds exceptional details to the entire process. It is always a joy to work with her!

We recently had our photo session with Holly for our two dogs. We met at Fish Creek park at the southwest end of the city. The setting was beautiful and it was a particularly awesome, autumn location.

Holly made us feel relaxed even though we arrived late and were stressed out from the drive. It’s truly incredible how well she works with both the dogs and their human counterparts!

But once it’s all over and she sends you the gallery of pictures from your session, that’s where her truly amazing talent shows through! Her pictures are nothing short of breathtaking, and cause you to become instantly emotional at the sheer beauty of capturing your pet’s facial expressions and their inner spirit.

Stop what you’re doing and book Holly now! I’m serious, you will not regret it.

We were very hesitant at first to get professional photo’s done of Cooper because of his fear of new people, we weren’t sure if we would get any pictures of him being the dog that we knew and love, while meeting a new person all at the same time.

When we first arrived to meet Holly, she completely ignored him and started tossing treats toward him, not jumping back or reacting to the continuous barking that went on, she built Coopers trust and could finally interact with him. She made Cooper feel safe and comfortable in just a short amount of time; it was amazing.

When Holly sent us the first sneak peak picture of the photo shoot that day, it brought tears to my eyes because she 100% captured the Cooper that not everyone gets to see, she truly is a great photographer.

Having an experienced, fun photographer to shoot our family was exactly what Holly delivered! Upon reading her amazing blog story about her love for her brindle boxer, it was a match made in heaven for us to utilize her services. We had heard of so many great reviews and we’re ecstatic when we got a new pup into our family so we could set-up a family session.

Our 2 year old boxer, Sheldon and Holly clicked as almost all boxer lovers do! He automatically took to her kind nature and wouldn’t leave her side. Our new husky/shepherd cross, Willow also had a great time with Holly as she posed and modeled right away.

At our photo shoot, she chose great locations to capture the city view as well as to capture the beautiful fall colours. We couldn’t wait to see our pictures and when we finally saw them, we were thoroughly impressed!

We laughed & cried at the beautiful captivating pictures that Holly had taken of our pups and our family. She does amazing work! She knows how to capture the best angles of the animals and she has a true heart for them. We can’t wait to have our beautiful artwork in our home and to set-up our next photo session in the winter!

THANK YOU Holly for capturing our family’s beautiful moments.

As a small business owner of a mobile veterinary practice in Calgary, I appreciate someone who not only has expertise in photography but also patience and understanding to photograph companion animals.

Holly took the time to find out exactly what we needed and she gave us many creative options and was at all times professional in her approach. We appreciate Holly’s knowledge and we knows that she is always striving to offer the best possible experience.

We have been very happy with the photography Holly has done for us, and we would not hesitate to use her services again. We have referred many people to Brindleberry. We wish Holly many long years of serving our community!

I cannot stress how wonderful Holly is; not only does she take beautiful photos, but she goes out of her way to support so many rescues in the city.

I had my very first session with Holly on Saturday and I have one word AMAZING. The way Holly and her assistant worked with my girls was just so good! We all had so much fun. I have 2 dogs and a cat and they just were so good with them and me and I’m amazed at how smoothly everything went.

I will definitely be going back to Holly for any pictures I want done. The love Holly has for animals is just so obvious. Thank you so so much Holly; you are wonderful!!


AMAZING photography! Holly makes the whole experience very comfortable and fun for the animals and their people.

Holly is so easy-going and calm, and my dogs and myself always feel calm and relaxed. Never rushed.

Holly did a fantastic job of taking pics of my Basset Hound and one very challenging cat (she even got some great shots of our whole family).

Everyone comments on our amazing photo canvases when they see them on our wall. I can’t wait to get more shots taken in the future.

Holly, thank you for helping me to capture and preserve the love that Lupita and I share. Knowing that she won’t be with me for the next 10-15 years really hurts but at least I can look back on these photos to put a smile on my face. Thank you!

Jennifer & Lupita

After admiring Holly’s work for years, I made an appointment for me and Jake. Sometimes he is shy around people he doesn’t know, but Holly and her assistant knew how to act, didn’t rush him, and he quickly came around.

And the pictures are incredible! I have had so many compliments on the photos. Having my canvas and album will be a great reminder of Jake now and always.

I will definitely contract Holly in the future and recommend her to anyone who wants exceptional pet photographs taken.

Theresa & Jake

My dog, Gertie, is always scared of new people and can sometimes take days to get warmed up to a person. I was worried that Holly wouldn’t be able to get a good picture of her, since Gertie won’t let anybody new near her.

When Holly came in, she completely gave Gertie her space, never trying to rush her or crowd her. She made sure Gertie was comfortable with all of her camera equipment, and rewarded her with lots of treats to earn her trust.

By the end of the session, I had to keep Gertie AWAY from Holly so we could get a good picture!

Christine and Gertie

Holly, you are such a kind and beautiful person with a soul of pure gold. Thank you!

I am so happy with the photos of Enzo. The first time I booked with BrindleBerry, Enzo was a small puppy and I wanted to capture his puppy stage.

The booking was easy and super prompt and we were able to get a time to get those precious puppy photos. There were so many good shots I couldn’t decide and had to purchase additional photos.

I’ve booked 3 additional JAM sessions with BrindleBerry. The photos capture Enzo’s goofy, playful, unique personality perfectly.

Jackie & Enzo

I just want to send you a quick email thanking you for your amazing (adoption) pictures. We had them done on Monday, posted on Tuesday, application for him Wednesday, viewing Thursday and adoption Friday! He has now been adopted!

Thank you for what you do! You help so many innocent lives find unconditional love for the rest of their lives!

I wanted to capture my dogs at their best; wild and crazy. Holly amazed me with her patience and she was literally laying in the snow to get the shots we wanted. Thank you!
