ABOUT BARKOGRAPHY by Kim Hollis

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

I'm Kim and my love for a black lab named Buddy 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.

I’ve always loved photography but I’d never thought about being a photographer until Buddy had a health scare in 2014. I bought my first professional camera so I could photograph him. Five weeks later I said goodbye to him and those images I have mean everything to me. I appreciate having them every single day and that’s why BARKography exists. I am so grateful to this little black dog for helping me find this path in life.

Now I want to capture these moments for you. I am based in Charlotte NC but I love to travel so I may be at a location near you soon! Email me if you'd like me to consider your location.

Watching the emotion my clients experience as they see the images I’ve created of their dog makes my heart smile. My hope is that everyone who loves his dog and wants photos taken, gets it done. If you don't hire me, hire someone. To me it's so important that you capture and preserve those memories and I'd be honored to do it for you.

4 year old Molly adopted Jan 2018. We call Moose chocolate and Molly espresso.

I also love to travel, watch sports (NFL and UNC basketball) and listen to music.

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 photographs 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.

I took my own advice and had photos of Moose and me taken. I love him and wanted to make certain I had memories of the two of us together.

Doesn't your dog deserve his own photography session? I think all dogs do because

Love Looks Like This

Dogs’ lives are too short. Their only fault, really.
