Hi, My name is Megan; I am the owner and founder of Paws and Claws Photography. I have been passionate about both pets and photography for many years, and decided to start my own company in 2005. I have graduated from the New York Institute of Photography and further my education regularly through PPA (Professional Photographers of America) classes. I am currently raising two Miniature Schnauzers, Parker and Hunter.

Clients often ask why I decided to create Paws and Claws Photography. Before I started my company, I tried to take my pets to a studio to have their photos taken. Not only did the photos not meet my expectations, the entire experience was stressful for my pets and me. So I decided to eliminate the inconvenience of transporting pets and the anxiety of introducing them to strange environments by coming to your home. I find that most pets and their people are more relaxed and photogenic in familiar surroundings. Plus, I have found a way to bring studio quality lighting and backdrops to virtually any location, resulting in professional portraits without the hassle.
