Chicago, Illinois Fine Art Animal and Pet Portrait Photographer

Leah Lewis is an award winning, internationally published animal portrait photographer who spends a good portion of her time off photographing rescued farm animals needing homes, any horses she can find, or her own two dogs.

Hi, I Love Your Pets.

Truth be told, I have been photographing animals longer than I have been people. That probably sounds strange to someone who has not yet met me - or just maybe because this site is mainly dedicated to my wedding and portrait work. Before I became a full time photographer, I worked as a vet technician, dog walker, yearling trainer...and those are just a few of the jobs I had growing up and while I was attending photo school. I consider myself to have extensive experience working with and handling a variety of domestic and wild animals and feel extremely comfortable working closely with them. (I even rescued an injured duckling during an engagement session.) I love taking on custom animal portrait commissions and I sell a small collection of fine art prints. Do you have a special project in mind? Or would just love to have some beautiful portraits made of your beloved pet? Please get in touch with me.
