Meet Your Photographer

Hi, My Name is Ren

I believe that a life well lived is measured in memories, not time. My goal as a photographer is to help you preserve those moments that become sweet memories. I am an active animal advocate and a certified Texas Master Naturalist. I began my photography journey years ago; I was that person that everyone relied on to be there with a camera. From family weddings to a recent African adventure, my camera is never far from my side. My passion for animals led me to start taking photographs to help dogs in high-kill shelters get noticed and adopted. That is when I realized I had a knack for animal photography that ultimately led to specializing in pictures of people with their pets. If you scroll through my gallery, you will notice that not all my clients have 4 legs. My portfolio includes family photos, commercial marketing and headshots, high school seniors, events, livestock, and celebration of life sessions. Twice a year I offer mini sessions (done at my studio), Fall and Christmas. I do not do weddings or newborns. I would love a chance to chat with you and see if I am the right photographer for you.

“Time stops for no-one, preserve the images that make you smile and keep loved ones near.”
-Ren Dowhaniuk

Family Is Everything

We value those that we love and they are the ones we want to create our memories with. Define yourself and your family and allow me to capture a snapshot in time of the ones that matter the most.

Grace Lake Ministries

I do volunteer photographs for Grace Lake Ministries because I admire the services they offer and the mission they strive to achieve. Grace Lake Ministries offers unique opportunities for growth through their Equine Assisted Services in a safe, fun, Christian environment. My photographs are used to promote and network this 501c.

Dallas Dog

Dallas Dog is near and dear to my heart. We adopted (foster-failed) through the rescue and each year I work closely with them to photograph animals in need for networking and marketing. In 2023 I photographed over 1200 rescues with the group and those photographs helped to get many adopted or in foster care. For more information on how you can help them by volunteering, donating, fostering, or adopting, please click the link below.
