Photographing - Stripper...

Robbie-2, originally uploaded by A Girl Named Ruth ;o). Well... when I was asked to do this shoot... didn't quite know what to say.. but what the heck I went for it. Rather fun shoot.. managed to keep professional at all times.. hard job but someone has to do it!

GOLD Award - Portrait Studio - SWPP August 2012

I've not entered many competitions of late, for one I've been to busy but another because the standards have got higher and I needed to push myself further in photography! I entered this image for last months competition and am delighted to say it achieved GOLD in Portrait Studio. It will now be published in the Society of Weddings and Portrait Photographers magazine!

Boys will be boys!

I don't wanna be an office worker!


Homework part 2-3-3, originally uploaded by A Girl Named Ruth ;o). Well we all learn all the time and in photography there is constant learning curves as you go. I have the pleasure of training with an amazing inspirational photographer.. Damian McGillicuddy whom is world wide known in photography :) I recently did another training day with Damian and this is one of the images I've done for my homework on lighting techniques.. hopefully he likes it as much as I do!

Winner of cute baby competition

Jorja-5, originally uploaded by A Girl Named Ruth ;o). We had the pleasure of photographing Jorja for her competition winnings in June. She was a delight to work with . Here's one of the many images that we got that day :)

Plenty happening....

So much to do so little time! I've been so busy so far this year getting the business up and running and with shoots... hopefully it's a sign of things to come! I have to say I'm loving it! I have also been undertaking some training... with Damian McGillicuddy I've been on two training days with Damian and have to say hopefully I'm reaping the benefits from his mentoring, both in the business and the technical side! Even though I earned my LSWPP last year, I can't sit back and relax.. I have to improve not just for myself but I owe my clients the best. I hope that my work will continue to get better and that when clients book me again they'll get something even more special than the first time!!! Watch this space.....

Jorja :)

Jorja, a set on Flickr. Today I saw one of our recent competition winners come in for her photoshoot. What a delight she was to photograph and very very cute!

Night time play

bankfoot-4-5, originally uploaded by A Girl Named Ruth ;o). Well it's not often I get the chance to play with my photography so I took the chance tonight as it was such a beautiful clear night. Hope you like it as much as I do :)

MOTHER'S DAY - approaching fast!

voucher mothers day, originally uploaded by A Girl Named Ruth ;o). So what are you getting your mum for mothers day this year... flowers, wine, chocolate, meal out..... STOP! Wouldn't you like to give her something to last a lifetime..... if your answer is yes, you've come to the right place. Why not purchase a portrait session for her... session includes a 10 x 8 print! Won't she just love it!!!!!!! I would think so! After all I'm a mum!!!


Sarah-4, originally uploaded by A Girl Named Ruth ;o). One from today's shoot :) Have to say I love the feeling of this image - had to share :)


Rachael-11, originally uploaded by A Girl Named Ruth ;o). Had to share this image of Rosie who I photographed today - it wasn't actually snowing and Rosie had to have talc applied to give her that extra lovely white look ... some actually rubbed off on the stable door, making it look as if it was frosty.. so I added the snow ;)
