Bridgette + Colin | Summer Night Engagement Session in Fort Wayne, IN

It was a perfect summer evening (except for the swarming bugs), the sun was setting and that beautiful dusky light was coming. Bridgette & Colin are so kind & beautiful souls, and I enjoyed walking around a local park in Fort Wayne, IN with them. I can’t wait for their wedding later this fall.

“Ruth gave the perfect amount of direction and use of spontaneity as a photographer. I always feel terribly awkward in front of the camera and was nervous to have our engagement and wedding photos taken. However, the time with Ruth taking photos flew by, and my husband (who hates getting his photos taken way more than I do...which is saying something) even said that he had a good time. Ruth makes it easy to relax in front of her, and her editing is so serene and magical. We really felt like she listened to us and our desires, but we trusted her so much that we didn’t have a lot of direction to give. As a photographer myself, I am now spoiled by Ruth and her photo taking magic. I look forward to the next photo session I have with her. :)” - Bridgette



Jill | Lifestyle + Creative Portrait Maternity Session in Fort Wayne, IN

Jill wanted to due a mixture of a portrait session of just her & a little in home lifestyle with her husband and their pups to document this time before their first babe arrives. I have really enjoyed doing both a mix of portraiture and lifestyle recently and there is no rule that says you can't do both! I can bring the studio to you. 

Jill is such a beautiful and talented lady and I was thrilled to photograph this exciting time for their little family. Enjoy a few of my favorites from this session. 

Ellington/Hartman Family | Foster Park Lifestyle in Session Fort Wayne, IN

So while I don't have any kids, I was a nanny for 8 years and that has taught me that little ones don't want to just sit and smile for more than a small handful of photos (I can't blame them). That is why I enjoy photographing family lifestyle sessions so munch because I can document kids just doing their thing. That could be running around a park and showing me their cool tricks or if it's in home then it's show and tell of all the toys. I love that aspect of lifestyle sessions and feel it's so important to have real life memories. 

It might have been a chilly spring day with this adorable family, but that didn't stop them from enjoying their favorite park in Fort Wayne. Below are a few of my favorites. 

Myah | Sunset Maternity Photography in Fort Wayne, IN

It was a perfect summer night when I went out to Myah's home to take her maternity photos. Myah is a beautiful soul and a dear friend so this was quite special. The St. John's will be welcoming their 4th little one in just a few  weeks, and this babe has no idea how lucky and loved it is already.  

“Working with Ruth is simple and inspiring. She is quick and talented, always producing breathtaking, artistic, unique, one of a kind work. She makes us feel at ease, helps style us, and very simply works her magic. Working with Ruth is always a joy!” - Myah
