Welcome

Hello from Perry Portrait Art in Chicago. I love to photograph people enjoying their lives.

In a world of AI and apps, I choose handmade and human scale.

This window display at 2600 West North Avenue has examples of my artistic portrait style (with gold leaf signs by Sean Michael Felix of Illumination Art and Design.)

My photos capture life in light as naturally as it occurs, to hold memories of treasured friends, the growth of children, and intimate, private celebrations.

For inquiries, send me an email at hello@dorothyperry.com or complete the Contact Form for a personal conversation on your needs for photography and documentation.

I look forward to the opportunity to meet and work with you!

All the best,
