At Artful Paws Photography, I specialize in pet photography, dog photography and family photography that includes animals. I understand the special bond you share with your pet. They are part of the family! Every animal has his own unique personality and it takes special skill and a lot of patience to truly capture that personality in photographs. That’s where I come in… My mission at Artful Paws Photography is to capture your pet’s personality in a fun and creative style and to provide you with beautiful images that you will treasure for life. Whether you are looking for a family photographer to capture a series of portraits that include your pet or a dog photographer to create a stunning portrait of your best friend, I can help you create lasting memories of the love you share with your furry friend.

Contact Me today to schedule your pet photography session!


The intimacy of your style creates some powerful moments that show our residents in a soulful, honest light. Every single one of these images has huge potential to incite one of those “I fell in love with that face on-sight” adoptions.

 Annie of Artful Paws Photography has brought to life my pups in photos. She has caught their personalities in print. You can tell that she knows how to get the best out of them. I love coming into my store and seeing the beautiful photos. Everyone who enters my Pet Boutique mentions how she captured my pups. So happy I found Annie! She is a definite find!
