Davette Leonard is an artist who has been living and working in gorgeous Rappahannock County for over three decades. Although she is known for her realistic still life oil paintings Davette uses her flair for realism to paint portraits of pets. Given photographs to work from, Davette is able to capture the personality and essence of your cherished animal friends. Her love for traditional painting techniques, including oil glazes and complex color mixing, finds its way into her pet portraits and produces a realism and depth of color and texture that help to make her pet portraits come alive.
The Studio of Davette Leonard is centrally located in the town of Sperryville.

Golden Retreat For K9's is a luxury dog resort with suites (not cages or runs) and a spacious play area where your dog can have fun while your away. We are not your traditional boarding kennel. Each room is decorated and has a toddler bed, sofa or doggie bed, fans and full view windows and doors providing natural light. There are no doggie doors. Dogs are let out by us five times per day! This gives your pet the feeling of being at home. At our dog resort we provide a vacation experience for your dog. In the summer time treat your buddy to a swim in our saltwater pool. You can be assured that they are safe, secure and having fun while you are away. If your dog is an only child we will try and team her/him up with a playmate while they are here. Older dogs or dogs needing special attention can relax in their suite getting lots of pets and TLC. For more information please visit our website or give us a call.

There are many reasons to have a professional photographer create images of your pet: you're welcoming a new addition to the family and want to document your first year together, you need a high quality image for a holiday card, or sadly have a treasured pet nearing the end of their days with you. Whatever your reason, I specialize in creating animal imagery that tells your pet’s unique story. From horses to hamsters, puppies to ponies, pussycats to parrots, no creature is too great or too small! My candid and insightful photographs reflect each animal's true personality and can be made into stunning wall art, memory books or traditional prints.
Your photo session can be held in my studio near Orlean, VA, which has both indoor and safe, outdoor space in beautiful woodland. Alternatively, I can bring my studio to either your home or your favorite outdoor space. I travel across the throughout the northern and central regions of Virginia and Washington DC Metro areas.
I have worked for more than 12 years as a photographer and have received a prestigious World Press Photo Award and multiple national and international newspapers placements, including the New York Times, International New York Times, The Times of London, and People, among many others. My work has been exhibited and sold internationally in Asia, Europe, the UK and the USA. I am a member of the association of Professional Photographers of America, the British Royal Photographic Society, the Orlean Artist Collective (OAC) and HeARTs Speak, a global organization that pairs artists with local animal shelters to help raise their profile and adoption success.
Since moving to Virginia in May 2018, I have partnered with a number of organizations to help with their adoption efforts including photographing the dogs and cats at WAAAG, (the Washington Area Animal Adoption Group) and some of the huge beautiful dogs at the Colonial Newfoundland Rescue and the Appalachian Great Pyrenees Rescue.
