Capturing your story from maternity, newborn and family to your small business, products or services.
I’m a family lifestyle photographer that is drawn to the beauty of natural light and playful moments. I’m here to have fun with you and your family and capture it along the way!
My journey and love for photography started with my mum who sadly passed away when I was a child leaving behind boxes and boxes of documentary style photographs. She documented every step of our young childhood, for which I am now so thankful for.
Since becoming a mother to my little girl, the importance of documenting family life has become even more apparent. Time goes by so quickly and I want to help families treasure those special moments in a way that reflects their personal connections. I don’t do poses, my style is very natural and organic. If a little direction is needed, I am on hand to guide and make you feel comfortable. I’m here to hang out with you in your natural environment and capture ‘you doing you’ as a family. However that might look!
In my earlier and slightly wilder years I was often the one with a camera in one hand and a naughty Smirnoff Ice in the other (don’t judge me – it was the noughties!) I would be your ‘go to girl’ to piece together the events from the night before, purely from looking through my camera! The wild days passed and the love for nature and adventure grew. I travelled solo through South America and Asia, camera in one hand and this time a smoothie in the other! I’d spend my days capturing the most magnificent sights and meeting so many amazing people… a part of my job I definitely love the most today too!
The creative buzz was becoming louder, and I decided to take the plunge and leave my career in the NHS to follow my passion and I have never looked back or been happier. The joy and fulfilment I get from creating beautiful imagery for clients to look back on for years to come is amazing. To be able to freeze a moment in time is priceless.
I’m at my happiest with my family and good friends and can often be found either by the coast (my calm place) or running free in a field full of wild flowers followed by good food and a cosy fire!
If you’d like to hang out, have fun and create special memories or even just fancy a chat, feel free to get in touch. I’d love to hear from you!
We were absolutely blown away by the images we received. My husband and I are not naturals in front of the camera but with Ruths relaxed manner we were instantly at ease. I have already recommended Ruth to lots of family and friends because I think she has such a special gift in capturing perfect moments and making them timeless.
