A Red Heeler photographed at the park with his people!

Flynn’s people warned me that he loves to play (especially with a ball, but any toy- or stick- is good)!.. and I saw that pretty quickly! He also loves cuddles and just simple loves being with his people- something that was evident throughout our time hanging out at the park capturing these gorgeous memories for Courtney and Sam.

Professional Pet Photography of Moose the White Swiss Shepherd and his humans at Warriparinga Wetlands

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to spend an afternoon in the sunshine photographing beautiful Moose with his family at Warriparinga Wetlands- one of my favourite locations.

To my surprise, there was even a little water in the creek still for Moose to play in and boy was he happy about it!

Elsie and Hugo

We spent a hot summers evening down at Grange to photograph these two Goldies with their humans.. and even invited their other sibling (who lives with their humans adult son), to join them for a couple of photographs!

Elsie and Hugo have a nice canvas coming for their home, and one of our mini albums for their beach house so these beachy images will fit right in!

Alfie the Pomeranian X at Largs Bay

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. 

The beginning

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.
