Who Are We?
Barkyard Studio was officially created in 2022. I have owned and operated a photography company called Triangle Room Studios, since 2016. Triangle Room Studios was a mobile photography studio, made out of a converted Box Truck from 2016-2020 and then in 2020, we sold the Box Truck and converted a Transit Van into a mobile studio. These mobile studios were so much fun and allowed me to venture out to new places for events. It was an absolute blast, but to be honest, working on my hands and knees with hundreds of dogs a day at each event, in the back of a box truck or van, in all types of crazy weather, was very difficult. In 2021, we sold the Transit Van and began working out of our little tiny home studio instead. This was so much fun, but again, very hard due to the limited space. In 2022, we decided to combine both Triangle Room Studios and my doggie daycare business, Barkyard Retreat and reopen up as Barkyard Studio at our new home in Glen Allen! We outgrew our tiny vintage Lakeside home and decided to move about 15 minutes away to Glen Allen, right off of Mountain Road. We now live in a cozy log cabin on a 1 acre wooded lot and have a detached large studio for Barkyard Studio! We are so excited to officially have an indoor space for clients to come for doggie portraits, birthdays and pawties! With the help of my 2 amazing dogs Shirley (the mini long haired Dachshund) and Natty (the mini Australian Shepherd), we are able to offer fun options like Stay & Plays! My 2 small sweet dogs love to play and lounge around with new friends! You can be sure that my dogs will end up being your small doggies new best friend!
