Ellie's Photo shoot ;o)

Yesterday I had the most fantastic opportunity to photograph some gorgeous young ladies. Above is one of the pics from the shoot. You can see a huge amount more by going to my Flickr site ;o)



What a week! My middle son broke his arm on Wednesday night so hospital overnight last night! Had to have it manipulated back into place... testing time!

On the photography front, just completing my first order. Shortly be complete. I've re-arranged a photo shoot for this Sunday. woo hoo! I can't wait - 8 x 14 year olds! Haven't a clue how I'm going to do it but I'm sure that we'll come up with something!

Let you know how it goes ;o)

June and Munro Shoot

Well it's the first time I've seen the wee small hours! Alarm went off at 6am snoozed for 10 then another! 6.20am in shower and by 6.45am I was on route to do a photoshoot for a fellow photographer in the woods by Kinclaven. Bluebells in their full glory! It was beautiful! Munro was the perfect model.. so was June! Check out the images here shortly ;o)


DSCF1076, originally uploaded by A Girl Named Ruth ;o). Well today I went and met my second "stranger" Anne. Well not a stranger as such, she was lovely! Great model to work with and I was delighted to take her pics! Hopefully she will find something from this selection to give to her mum and dad. Thanks Anne for being such a good model ;o)

The forgotten one ;O)

DSCF0613b300dpi, originally uploaded by A Girl Named Ruth ;o). How could I have forgotten this image! I have blurred out the fencing in the background on this one... can't quite make up my mind whether to leave it as it was or like this one ;o)


Hi I'm just completing images for Declan. I hope I did him justice.. I thoroughly enjoyed the session! After ducking and diving as every 3 year old does I'm about sleeping! I am pleased with some of the outcomes although realise I have still lots to learn! That's what models are for! Worried about quality issues... I had ISO at 400 for taking most of the pics as Declan was so fast! So images are a little grainy but I'm sure they are not as bad as what I think.. every photographer panics!! Thanks so much to Danielle for letting me photograph Declan. I hope you like the images which will show up here shortly. Hope to be able to do more for you again! Ruth ;o)

First Model

I am so looking forward to going on a photoshoot tomorrow. Little Declan aged 3! Hoping to get plenty of shots of Declan. If it's raining we will be splashing in puddles! Whatever the weather rain or shine we'll be having fun. Should have something on here in the next couple of days! ;o)

Gimmie Gimme Gimme ;o)

DSCF2693b, originally uploaded by A Girl Named Ruth ;o). I love this one! My lad Finlay wanting me to open a packet of Rainbows taken last summer at Ellie Beach in Fife ;o)

Happy Dayz ;O)

I am finally getting to grips with this blog thing I think!! I am still awaiting the phonecall for the new baby .... I'm going to have to take my friend for a scary car journey or a curry I think!!! Hopefully he/she will arrive safely and soon!!! I'm getting word around with the use of Facebook to get models for practising on! It's coming on really well I have to say and I'm hoping that this may lead to a full-time vocation!!!



First Newborn!

Well I've had a productive day today. A friend is having a baby shortly anytime in the next 7 days!!! She has agreed for her baby to be my first newborn model! I can't wait!!!! Come on Baby X time to be born!!! I said could she not just have the baby and I could do the photoshoot right now! lol I'm desperate to get started... maybe not as much as the mum!!! ;o)

I'll keep you posted as soon as I've got some images ;o)

Sunny days ;o)

..... Something's trying to steel my Sun...

These are a few of my favorite images, I'll hopefully get a few more models to add soon!
Welcome to my blogger... I hope that you enjoy my photographs. One day I hope to go professional. I get inspiration for photography from loads of different people to mention. I use Flickr mainly and must admit when a picture makes someone smile I love what I do!!!
