Jack spends his weekend down at his beautiful beach house and since his favourite thing to do is walk to the beach it made sense to photograph him doing just that after a bit of playing at home.
This incredibly special pet photography session features Alfie, a 2 year old Pomeranian X who had a fabulous play date with his family at Largs Bay. His human arrange the session to capture the beautiful relationship her niece shares with Alfie and what is more beautiful than a child's relationship with their pet.
I'm currently finalising a personal photographic project of pets with their tiny humans. If you have a child under 6 years old whose best friend is non-human.. give me a shout..! I'd love to capture that bond they share for my upcoming exhibition.
Meet Olly then Cocker Spaniel and his Human Kate who were photographed in the Adelaide Parklands to feature in his vets waiting room.
Unfortunately Olly has since passed away.
Our thoughts are with Kate and hope that when she's ready, Olly's album will help her through the grieving process.
Ryder and his humans came out to Belair National Park for their session in September and this is their collection!
Not all leads have been removed for the slideshow but were for ordered prints.
I met Dre out at Anstey's Hill for his puppy session back in May. I spent the afternoon capturing him chasing sticks, showing off his best hi-five and cuddling with his mum, Sam.
A week or so later his humans came in to my little client space to view the photos and create a collection. With a face this cute.. it was difficult to choose a favourite so they decided on one of everything (almost!)- a couple of matted gift prints, a framed wall print and of course, a custom designed puppy book.
Our recently introduced puppy books are proving super popular. They're a mini version of our deluxe albums, still the best quality just a little smaller, a few less pages, and a wrap around photo cover (instead of being leather or linen bound).. and best of all.. they're half the price!
The above slideshow shares Dre's entire session and below is the overview of their puppy album design.

Ned spent an afternoon wandering in the bush and watching ducks at Belair National Park, just up the hill from the Adelaide CBD, for his puppy photography session a little while back.
Even though Ned has pretty amazing recall and a very good sit and stay, the ducks were pretty exciting so we popped him back on-leash for the images toward the end, which was then removed in post-production.
As with Ned's session, your session is completely about you and your dog and most importantly ensuring every one is relaxed and having fun. Often this means putting the dog on-lead, or moving to a new location with less distractions, both which are possible, and will allow for an even better result.
If you have any questions about how our sessions work, or how we could approach a session with your family, I'd love to chat- just give me (Kirstie) a buzz on 0435 879 952 during business hours, or you can email anytime!
On a chilly afternoon at Belair National Park I met with Koda and his parents to photograph his adorable puppy stage and last week I handed over his album and prints .. this is his collection by award winning Adelaide pet photographer, Bitsa Bernard Photography.Read More
This photograph of Flee and I was taken by my boss at Danae Studio back in 2012 while he was helping me improve my pet photography skills. Not long after I was building my portfolio and by November I had decided to road trip with my camera and so Bitsa Bernard (then Kirstie M) was formed.
Although I have created my own style over the years, I still implement the techniques that I learned that afternoon so this photograph will always be one of the most special images I have as it represents the beginning of my pet photography career.
Images in the above slideshow of Shane, Flee and I were taken by Bitsa Bernard Photographer, Dani.
