Family Portraits Blue Bell PA

Come and visit us for your next family portrait at Barbara Leidy Photography, which is located in the Blue Bell, PA area.  We have a gorgeous outdoor garden studio that remains beautiful eight months of the year.  Barbara designs and maintains the gardens, which she specifically creates for photography.  At different times of the day Barbara will photograph in areas where the light is best.  About 1 hour before sunset is the “golden hour” where the light is warm and soft.  We will take family portraits almost any time of day, but work around the schedules of young children so they are at their best for the family portrait.  Barbara is an award winning portrait photographer. Her experience working with special needs children and their families has enabled her to have the patience and dedication needed to put children and families at ease, which shows in her portraits.
