About BARKography by Kim Hollis

If you're reading this, I'm guessing you love dogs. I do too.

For many of us, our relationships with our dogs are some of the most important relationships in our lives because they provide us with so much unconditional love.


My name is Kim and I've dreamed of working with dogs my entire life. In 2009 that dream came true when I started my own dog walking and pet sitting business. 

I've had dogs my entire life and I've worked full time with them for over 9 years. That experience helps me tremendously as a dog photographer.

I understand dogs' behavior. I can read their signs. That will help me understand your dog and bring out the best in him during his session so I can create images that capture his personality.


My love for a black lab named Buddy pictured with me above led me to launch BARKography and I’m so grateful to him for helping me find my 'why' in life. "Love Looks Like This" is exactly how I feel when I see a photograph of a dog.

My dogs mean the world to me.


I don't have amazing images of my first two dogs Sloan and Sam. Now that Buddy and Willow are no longer here, the images that I have of them are priceless to me. Seeing their sweet faces on the artwork on the walls of my house makes me happy.

If you're thinking of doing this, act now. Don't wait.

Time goes by too fast.
