Pet Photography

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.  Various techniques are used 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.  Almost all of our pet photography is done in our outdoor garden studio unless we go on location to photograph your pet in their own environment, because they are more comfortable.

With horses, we can attend shows and do still photos and action shots.  We can either be your personal photographer or work with several people at the same barn or show, helping to save on cost for everyone.  Contact us for pricing on attending horse shows, or coming to your barn for a photo shoot.
