An area of specialty at Barbara Leidy Photography is pet photography, which usually includes dogs or horses, and occasionally cats. We also enjoy photographing you with your pet, which works well if your pet is nervous or easily distracted. We use various techniques to get your pet’s attention, because it only takes a brief second to get that special shot. When photographing your dog, we always provide a big dish of water to make them happy and cool. Treats help to keep their attention. We photograph them either in the early morning or evening when it is cooler. We don’t like them to pant too much and would rather they smile for the camera. Pet photography takes place in our outdoor garden studio. We will go on location to photograph your pet in their own environment, where they may be more comfortable.
In our gallery below are two images with artistic effects. One portrait is a watercolor of a gray dog. Another portrait is of two dogs with brush strokes added. Double click on each image to see the effects. We can add these artistic touches to your favorite animal portrait.
