Welcome and thank you for visiting Shutter Hound Pet Photography. My name is Kirsten Krupps and I am a photographer located in Austin, Texas who specializes in pet portraiture. I’ve always had an affinity for animals and when photography became my “thing,” I was naturally drawn to photographing pets.  I absolutely adore working with animals and their humans. Below are my two dachshunds, Kai and Lola, who inspire me and love me unconditionally every day!
