Little life update for my fellow dog lovers and blog followers…. I am now in Jersey City, NJ. I decided to see what life was like on the other side of Manhattan for a while. So if you are a pet owner or business owner in New Jersey area, please reach out and for any photographic needs. Or to invite me to any cool parties this summer, always looking for friends that have pools and pooches. lol 🐾 🖤 🐾


This handsome young fella was adopted a few months ago by the very talented hair stylist Fibi Shaw. @hairbyfibi. Since then, he has taken on the role of CEO at the hair salon in Manly and all the clients absolutely love him. His given name is Finn, but he also answers to, Boobie, Dr. Boobus, Mr Boobusson, Dr. Rick Boobenstein.

He has escaped once, and went straight to KFC because he obviously wanted a zinger. Finn is a self confessed coffee addict and will do anything to get your coffee cup, whether it is empty or full. He loves car rides, but will start crying when you drive slower than 60 kph.

His other hobbies include swimming, digging up Grandma’s garden and getting tangled in the bed sheets.

This is the 3rd year in a row I have produced the images for the Guide Dogs Australia Calendar and I am just as proud of this one as all the others. We have highlighted all the different careers these beautiful dogs have been bred, raised and trained to be fully trained Guide Dogs, Therapy Dog, Breeding Dogs and more.

Little Lucy is such an expressive little puppet, those eyebrows are just the best thing about her. Actually that’s not true, her sweet snuggly nature is just the most pure and gorgeous trait she has. Lucy is always up for a cuddle, a play, a walk, especially if it’s raining, as she gets to wear her hot pink raincoat out. She loves being outside and meeting new friends on every walk. Her owners can’t get more than one block without having to stop and talk to fellow puppy lovers. She is pure fun and joy to have around and a total a time waster, I know could watch her play with my $1.50 dust pan and broom from Bunnings for hours on end.

Yolanda & Andrew

I first photographed these two back in 2015, when Andrew rescued  Yoli from a Brooklyn shelter. Now 4 years on she has grown into that strong Brooklyn lady name that Andrew gave her, so she would  fit in both the Polish and Puerto Rican neighbourhoods they live between. She still has all her little quirks that makes her Yolanda, plus a few new ones. It was a pleasure to be able to capture them in their hood and favourite places to hang out.

What a privilege it was to teach this wonderful workshop in New York this fall. I have always taught my pet photography workshops in a studio. This time I wanted to do a workshop on location and use the grungy streets of Brooklyn and the beautiful Autumn leaves of Central park, as the backdrops. I created a posing guide for photographers to use as a reference, when posing pets and people together. As I love being able use the environment as inspiration and capture love and special bond animals have with their owners. By using fashion, architecture and the cities backgrounds, we can create special portraits to treasure forever. -Kristie ❤

Meet my Nephew “Nixon”! He is a massive sook and a bit of a goofball. He is a sweet, cuddly boy, who loves to sit on laps, all 70 pound of him. Nixy was hit by a car when he was 2 years old and broke both his front legs. After lots of $$$ and care, he made a full recovery and was left with just a few scares. He loves being on the water, either on my brothers boat or just running on the beach with dog friends. Nix is the happiest when all his family are around. ❤
