Important info!

"I cannot express how impressed I am with Kim. She photographed one of my dogs - she was so hospitable, kind, prepared and patient with my dog as she got comfortable. Her photos are amazing and I had trouble picking just one (I ended up picking more because I loved so many). She brought out a sample of a metal print which I didn’t think I’d like but I fell in love with the vibrancy it conveys. I can’t wait to see my print! And I’ve already scheduled another pet to get photographed since I loved it so much.
I imagine it’s difficult to photograph pets and really capture their personalities. I am so thrilled with what Kim was able to capture and the memory of my dog that I’ll have forever."


"Working with Kim will be a repeat experience! It’s not your standard photoshoot. It’s a complete personalized experience and she creates art, not just a portrait. Her eye for photography and the style of prints she offers are not only unique but absolutely stunning. She's also a joy to work with and has changed my standard for working with any photographer in the future!"


"I was very nervous imagining all the ways a photo shoot for a rambunctious pit bull puppy could go wrong (what if the pup knocked over lights? Tinkle on the floor? Won’t sit and stay?)

Kim put me completely at ease and was so wonderful with my fur baby. The whole experience was highly professional, including going over potential dietary restrictions and allergies to treats; the studio space is modern and clean; turn around time was faster than expected, and best of all it was a fun bonding experience. Two paws up!"


About Kim Wolfe

I specialize in photographing families, children, and pets but my goal as a photographer is to help busy people curate large photographic wall art of their loved ones for their homes.

Life is busy enough without having to sift through 300 digital images to find the best ones to print and frame. In fact, in the past, I found that most of my clients (myself included) weren’t printing images from photography sessions at all! The question is: what will we do with all of those digital images? It became clear to me that I needed to help families decorate their worlds with highly personal artwork. Artwork that can be passed on from generation to generation.

Last year my small business raised over $1200 in charitable funds! I'm looking forward to raising even more in 2024!
