Perry Portrait Art | 773 397-4249 | Family & Event Photographer | On Location, Chicago

Welcome to Perry Portrait Art, especially if you are looking for a good Chicago Family Photographer!

This lovely window at 2600 West North Avenue is a display of canvas and framed portrait art in Perry Portrait Art’s style, which captures and freezes beautiful emotions as well as special occasions with loved ones.

Dorothy Perry has been a resident of Chicago for many years as a custom photographer of great and small personal events.

Her sensitive, lowkey style captures wholesome children, feminine leadership, and upscale urban social experiences throughout the city. Young women especially love her portraits of ​​leadership and authenticity as they emerge through her intuitive lens.

In addition, Perry Portrait Art is skilled in restoring older family images of legacy and wisdom to show and inspire younger children.

I honor the love of family in bespoke portrait photography and framing, and custom photo retouching to bring out the best in the portrait.

In a world of apps and AI, Perry Portrait Art chooses human scaled and handmade.

A conversation is part of booking my services and discussing what happens after photographing you.

Please contact me at or complete the Contact Form to talk in person or Zoom.

I look forward to the opportunity to photograph you, your family, and family business images.

This uses a visualization technique called imaginating, a great tool for managing and mellowing real life situations. The key is to let…

Generosity of Spirit

There is a generosity of spirit I continually refer to in dealing with others. The best way I can describe it is intent, creation, and maintenance of a state of mind that is flexible, open eyed, and playfully creative. It trains itself to see abundance in the environment, experiences simple, present-moment emotions of happiness, maintains…
