A Look Back On 2017 | Fort Wayne & Indianapolis Photographer

What a year 2017 was in more ways that I can list. It was an amazing year filled with change, growth, and opportunities I had only dreamed about. I had the privilege of working with so many amazing couples, families, and individuals; who I can't thank enough for making this year one to remember. I loved meeting new people in Fort Wayne, IN, Indianapolis, IN, Chicago, IL, Fairfield, CT and Michigan. 

I decided to just share an overview of the year, and I also mixed in some of my editorial work from my new website I launched earlier in the spring www.ruthyaro.com

Cheers to 2017 & excited to see what 2018 will bring. 



I couldn't end this post without sharing the about the highlight of the year. I was given an amazing opportunity to freelance for The Wall Street Journal a couple times, and through it I had the pleasure of meeting some of the kindest people.

Pink | Fort Wayne, IN Portrait Photography

My lovely friend Eden & I started Photanical Series, which combines photography & botanical workshops that promote creativity & community. By documenting how beautiful it is when women create, it tells the story of the modern woman & what can happen when their strengths are acknowledged, appreciated, & united. 

If you’re interested in hearing more about it, our website is http://www.photanicalseries.com. 

This shoot was inspired by all the beautiful colors that spring and summer are filled with. 

Movement | Personal Work

Photography wasn’t my first artistic love; I studied ballet/modern dance for 16 years. 

I loved to go into the dance studio alone where I would turn up the music and just lose myself in the movement.  It was freeing to release myself in some way. 

Life happened, my artistic expression changed, but feeling the music has never changed. If I close my eyes I can see the movement and that freeing feeling is still there.
