If you've ever said any of the following things you're in the right place

‘I'm unphotogenic and never look good in photos’

‘ I want to have fun when I have my picture taken’

‘Choosing what to wear for our photos is such a big job’

‘I want a photographer I can feel comfortable with’

‘I'm always so stiff & unnatural in photos’

‘Planning a wedding is overwhelming’

'The kids move too fast to get any good shots’

‘I want honest photos that capture our family bond’

‘We haven't had photos taken since the kids were babies'

‘I like photos that capture memories, not 'cheesy' smiles’

‘We don’t have any nice photos of the whole family'

‘Where should we go for our photos?’

Hi I'm Ruth,

A Wedding, Family, Maternity and Newborn photographer based in the Waikato. I'm guessing you're here because you have precious moments you want captured, whether that be the season your family is in, or your big day, I'm here to help!

Most people feel apprehensive about the idea of a photoshoot, either because they’re not sure how to create their vision, or they’re worried about how it will all turn out.

I get it. I understand what it’s like to feel a little overwhelmed by the challenge of curating a great photoshoot. It takes time, resources and hard earned know-how to mindfully create the moments people are hoping to capture. It’s my job to help with those challenges. I work to eliminate worries and unknowns, and join forces with my clients to construct photo shoots that meet their brief and embody their unique vision. This is about far more than just photography. This is about collaborating to create custom made art of you and your loved ones.

Kind Words

Ruth is such an incredible photographer. She has this beautiful way of putting you at ease and slots in so well as part of the team - she honestly felt like she attended my wedding as a friend who happened to take a lot of photos, it was so cool. And the photos!! Breathtaking. I honestly can't recommend her highly enough, from the pre-wedding support (because i'd never organised a wedding before!) to the album-deciding process, so amazing. You can't go wrong with Ruth.

Thank you so much Ruth for an amazing photoshoot in the comfort of our own home. Thank you for not only capturing some beautiful pictures of our newborn Milo but also his big brother. My toddler was incredibly distracting but Ruth took it in her stride, got him involved and just carried on with the task in hand. All our family & friends absolutely loved the pictures as much as we did. An experience we will treasure forever. We highly recommend Ruth for all your photography needs. Thanks again!
