About Our Studio

Barbara Leidy Photography is located in the Plymouth Meeting, PA area and features a spectacular indoor and outdoor garden studio. Areas of specialty are children’s photography, babies, maternity, families, executive portraits, corporate photography, event photography, and pet photography.  Besides a studio in the Montgomery county area, we travel to client locations for executive head shots, corporate photography, and family portraits mostly in Montgomery, Bucks, and Delaware counties.

Mini Sessions:

Mini Sessions are great for young children who don’t like to sit still for long.

Outdoor Garden Studio:

We use our our outdoor garden studio from late May through early November. We are a child friendly studio and have many areas in the outdoor garden studio for the kids to be curious about.  Many children enjoy seeing the fish and frogs in the garden pond, and an occasional bunny or fox running by.  We know how distractions can sometimes give great photographs. Our outdoor garden studio also provides a spectacular backdrop for almost any occasion.

Family & Lifestyle Photography:

Our Family & Lifestyle Photography includes photographing children, babies & maternity, baby’s first birthday, and families.  Barbara’s work with special needs children has enabled her to put children and their families at ease, especially when it comes to having their photograph taken!  Sometimes the adults can be as nervous as the kids, so what works for the kids often works for the adults too.  We want everyone to have a positive experience while taking family portraits, always.

Head Shot Photography:

Head shot photography is a necessary tool for business, social media, and modeling careers.  You don’t have a second chance to make a first impression.  It is important to know whether your head shot will be formal, casual, or a little of both.  We use natural, dynamic background settings as well as backgrounds specifically for head shots.  We have sessions for both a more formal corporate look, and something more casual for a Linked In head shot.  Pricing for head shot photography is found on the Head Shot Photography page.

Corporate Photography:

Corporate photography is critical for any business that has a website, which is probably every business today.  We travel to companies locally and do corporate events, company head shots, and company group photos.

Pet Photography:

We love our pets, no mistake about that.  We mostly photograph dogs, but occasionally a horse or two.  Visit our pet photography gallery where we have samples of our pet paintings from photographs.

Senior Photography:

Senior photography includes formal and informal sessions, in our indoor studio or outdoor garden studio.  Many seniors like to bring props that include their interests such as sports or musical instruments.
