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

‘I 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’

‘Where should we go?’

'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'

'I need professional images for my website’

‘I'm unphotogenic’

I understand what it’s like to feel intimidated by the idea of being in photographs. For years I struggled with having my photo taken, no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t seem to figure out how to look natural or confident. Years later I began to recognize that making a beautiful photo was just as much about the Photographer as it was the subject. After a positive experience being photographed, I realised I could enjoy the process of being in front of the camera, just as much as I enjoy being behind it.

This motivated me to extend the same service to the people I capture. To help them have a great experience where they feel confident and relaxed.

The results? We create memories that can be shared and keepsakes that can be remembered.

ps If I have a superpower, making people feel comfortable is it.

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!

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.
