This jaunty derby
was an essential part
of this young man’s
daily wear for school
for a time.
We artistic types recognize
what courage it takes
and what it costs
to be so different
in this world.
This tiny picture fragment
from long ago
becomes a testament
to childhood’s enduring,
To witness the moment in photographs.
To record the beautiful grace of infancy.
To remember the elders, travelling to see their new young one.
To document time, place, and reality for the future.
To make good energy visible for the home.
To celebrate the two, becoming three.
To honor the spirit of family.
This is why.
If I can help record your family legacy with fine lifestyle portraits, I welcome your inquiry at http://www.dorothyperry.com/contact/.
It’s a beautiful use
of the best part of you,
and the process to enter
an extraordinary way of life.
Cease practice based
on intellectual understanding,
pursuing words and
following after speech.
Learn the backward step
that turns your light inward
to illuminate within.
Body and mind of themselves
will drop away,
and your original face
will be manifest. — Dogen
This ancient poem
holds the energy
of what I choose to see
in the world around me –
and what I seek to create.
Genuine. Inspired. Human.

I photographed their parents elopement portrait
and their blending families,
and amongst the official moments
of this special day, of a new life,
they created a new portrait
especially for me to see.
I wish their big, brand new family
many moments of unity, amity, and love.
Perry Portrait Art captures real families and their good energy.

With all that changes, some things still remain the same:
A couple decides that their two will become one (and added little ones, too!)
And the energy of their precious private moment
becomes an artistic testament to their love.
Do the photographs in your home thrill you?
If they don’t, call me! I do my best to see you at your Best!
