Close Up: Penzi Pet Photography

Kelly Allen has what some of us might call a dog’s life . . .  she spends her working hours exploring Boston area dogs parks, in the company of dogs.   Her dog walking business, A Dog’s Life Boston provides custom care for active dogs.  More than just walk around the block, dogs enjoy mini-hikes at local parks and preserves.

Kelly Allen

Kelly has a background in photography and really got interested in taking pictures in her early teens.  She was at once at home in the medium.    When she started the dog walking business, she spent the first few years enjoying the New England terrain with her dog clients.  One morning, she brought along her camera – and the results,  as you can see have been captivating.

Kelly’s goal is to create fine art pet photography that embodies the unique spirit and personality of each pet.  Shooting exclusively in a candid, documentary style, her preferred locations are outdoor setting with natural light like flower gardens.  Kelly creates a balance between the classic beauty of black and white with the vibrance of color photography.


With her love of dogs,  Kelly ensures that the experience for  everyone involved is a positive one with a finished product celebrating  the spirit and personality of our pets who touch our hearts and enrich our lives. Penzi Pet Photography is comprised of  photographer Kelly Allen and her pup Penzi.   Kelly chose the name Penzi, which comes from the Swahili culture and means “one who is loved”.  Penzi was adopted in early 2006 and has been Kelly’s inspiration ever since.

Kelly’s mission is to “create beautiful, timeless,  photographic  images celebrating those who touch our hearts and enrich  our lives.”
