Frequently Asked Questions

Can I include all the family in the photoshoot?  Of course! This is the perfect opportunity to jump in a few frames yourselves. We are more than happy to extend your session time (with a $50 fee) to photograph the whole family- this session is all about your family after all!

Where and when will the photoshoot take place?  We are aiming to have as many shoots as possible done in time for Christmas gifts. For those families with school aged children, shoots will be available during the Summer School Holidays. You can choose from one of our favourite central locations- depending on the background you’d prefer to see on your walls, and which suits your family best! The options are: Adelaide Parklands, Mariolta, Warriparinga Wetlands (our favourite!) and Grange. We are also happy to discuss a location special to you.

Can I buy photographs and digital images? You sure can- and you even get your $100 back as a print credit if your ordering appointment is held within 7 days of your shoot! Don’t forget to let us know if you want prints back for Christmas gifts as we’ll need to prioritise your shoot date!

Will my photograph be in the book? Yep- all those who pay their participation fee, are photographed (obviously), and return for their ordering appointment will be in the book. 

Do I get to choose the photograph for the book? During your ordering appointment I will grab some feedback from you on which images you would prefer to be in the book. We can’t guarantee it will be your favourite that’s included, as we’ll be choosing the image that suit the rest of the book best, but we will definitely aim to use your favourite if possible!

When will the book be available? We are aiming to have the books available by May 2019

How much will the book cost? The price of the book will depend on total number of books ordered, but will be around $60.

When do applications close? Applications are open until all 100 places are filled.. but get in quick because there are not many left!

Help us raise $5000 for RSPCA South Australia

If there’s one family member of every house who can be trusted with any secret and happens to give the best cuddles a kid could ask for, it’s the four-legged one.

Following our previous two coffee-table books, this new book, celebrates the unconditional love between kids and their dogs. From the teeny-tiny bubba’s who call for gentle nudges, to the kindy kids always seeking a cheeky laugh and teenagers who explore the world with their trusty side-kick- this project will capture it all for the book and your walls too.

This is perfect timing for AWESOME Christmas presents for the grandparents!..

Bitsa Bernard is all about giving back. Since 1875 RSPCA South Australia has been preventing animal cruelty and is now responsible for matching thousands of families with their perfect fur-kid each year. To assist them in continuing their work, half of the participation fee will be donated to RSPCA South Australia .


"A Bitsa Bernard photoshoot is a unique way to capture your kids first love (their dog obviously)"

-Aimee (proud mum)
