My name is Stephanie Payton.  I have always had a creative streak, but when I received my first DSLR camera, it was as if I had finally found the missing piece of the puzzle. I took to my camera like a duck takes to water. 

After a lot of experimentation, I returned to my first photography love: animals. There is something otherworldly about animals, whether they are members of our families, colleagues working beside us, or neighbors living in nature.

I am honored that I get to help you capture, if for only a moment, the intangible quality of your relationship with your pet, companion, colleague, or neighbor animal.
