Our gallery and studio is in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and we serve clients throughout New England and beyond.
We believe that family portraits are the most valuable art you’ll ever own, meant to be seen and appreciated daily.
Collaborating together with you, we begin with the end in mind. We will discuss which fine art products best serve your dreams, as well as your budget, and we’ll work together to design something perfect for you and your home.
Your first step is a call with our studio so that we may gather a little information about your pet, as well as answer any of your preliminary questions before the next step in your portrait journey: the pre-session Design Consultation.
At Kimberly Sarah, we begin with the end in mind. This means that well before your photo session, you’ll come to our gallery and studio to meet Kim and Bud for a close look at all of the beautiful fine art options available. We will discuss how you envision portraits will hang in your home, and using photos of your walls and state of the art software, we will factor in your décor, your artistic taste, and your budget to create your perfect collection of portraits.
This is the big day! You can rest assured that Kim and Bud, in their calm, unhurried, professional way, will bring out the best in all of you and have you asking yourself why you were so worried. All that’s left to do is relax and enjoy the session! Our hope is that the experience of having your furry family photographed is a memory you will cherish as much as you do the portraits themselves.
Viewing and Ordering Session
A week or two after your portrait session, you’ll return to the gallery for an Ordering Appointment with Kim and Bud. Your portraits will be presented on the big screen and you’ll see your Kimberly Sarah design plan come to life. We will have wall art designs ready for you based on what we discussed at your Design Consultation. Your complete order will be placed at this meeting, so we highly encourage you to have all decision-makers present and make childcare arrangements.
Artwork Production and Delivery
Once your order is placed, we oversee every step of the production process, ensuring that the project is perfect in every way and delivered on time. We have chosen the best archival materials and the finest Italian artisans to create the artwork we have chosen. All that will be left is for you to come back and see the grand reveal of your final artwork so it can be installed in your home!
We are fine art photographers Kimberly Buccheri and Bud Thorpe, here to provide you and your treasured pets with an exceptional studio photo session experience - and to create memories that will last a lifetime.
You may have seen our work displayed on the cover of ‘New Hampshire Magazine’, or know of us through our projects to help hundreds of shelter dogs find loving homes, but the majority of our luxurious Art can be found gracing the walls of our clients homes.
Being our client is a boutique experience. We delight in spoiling you from the very start and guarantee you’ll be amazed with your Art Work and enraptured with the entire affair. We’ll welcome you and your pet into our studio, lavish you with our exceptional level of service, and create Art for you to enjoy forever.
We devote our time and energy to planning and creating Wall Art as unique as the personalities we have the pleasure of photographing, and for this reason, we only accept a limited number of commissions each month.
We would love to hear from you to learn more about you and your pet, and to share how we can make your pet Art dreams come true.

We have worked hard to provide beautiful artwork and an exceptional experience for all of our dogs and their families.
We are honored to have worked with each and every one of them, especially to Jasper and Kable the two pups you will see in the video!
"Kim is a magician when it comes to capturing four-legged fur-babies. She is a true animal lover and works tirelessly to get the shot that captures the personality and of course cuteness of each subject. She is always coming up with new ideas for setting and backgrounds and is an ultimate professional. The end product is a work of art that any pet owner would be honored to have hanging on their wall. On top of it all, Kim is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet and is just overall a joy to work with. I highly recommend Kim for capturing your four-legged family member whether it be a new puppy or a long-loved senior. Kim's photo of my puppy Fiona was featured on the cover of New Hampshire Magazine! In short, she's the BEST!"
