My name is Dorothy Perry, and I feel blessed to do something that I really enjoy every day – to photograph families and women in their times of growth and celebration. This includes portraits of moms and women as the creative, intelligent beautiful ladies they are!
When I put my cameras down, I am Mom to Miriam and Artist, Grandmom to Shoba and Nita, and stepmom to my cats Beany and Cecil!
The Gallup Strengthsfinder tests point to me as an out of the box idea and intellect loving person. I am fascinated with thinking, reading, dreaming, and exploring my intuitive side in everyday life. I also really love to dance!
I am forever grateful to all the wonderful life moments I have witnessed all these years. Below are a few words from past clients that are now close friends.
Had a great experience with Dorothy. Pictures came out beautiful!! Dorothy was very accommodating and showed great patience and professionalism. Yasmine R.
We had Dorothy do our son’s newborn photos in late April. She was fantastic and the pictures turned out amazing. Great service all around, highly recommended! We were very impressed with her and plan to have her for future family events and life milestones. Osee P.
Dorothy’s photographs are really beautiful! They look professional, creative, and purposeful. Her demure and attitude were both very professional and I would be happy to hire her for another event. Regina B.
One of the things a great photographer does is capture the small moments and details the rest of us miss. Dorothy has the ability to evoke happiness and energy when she photographs people. She finds those moments and she puts people at ease. If you want to document your event in a unique way, I highly recommend Dorothy Perry Portrait! Sean F.
The first thing I have to say is, if you’re interested in not looking “goosed” or tense in your wedding day photos, she is the photographer for you. Dorothy was so calm and focused on the task at hand. It was an art for her and it showed. The composition, the color, the saturation were all perfect. She even used Photoshop to erase the unavoidable refuse that was on the beach. (Ah, Chicago.) She helped me so much with calming me down during the engagement and wedding photo shoots. When I would unconsciously be gripping my soon to be husband’s shoulder, she told me to breathe. When I would find my self holding my breath, again she calmly told me how everything was going to be perfectly beautiful. Honestly I believe it’s because of her, the engagement pictures were wonderful, and the wedding album…..magical. Stephanie B.
My husband and I will treasure the images she captured for their beauty and honesty. Ruth C.
