Hi! I’m Ruth and I’m a portrait, boudoir and brand photographer based in Loughborough, East Midlands.

Whatever type of photography you’re after, it’s my aim to provide you with wonderful images and a great experience too. I’ve plenty of experience in putting people at ease and I promise to make it easy and relaxed for you.  

Some of my brand and portrait images for Seed Home Designs have been featured in Vogue, Daphne’s Diary, House of Coco and World of Interiors publications and in 2020 & 2021 I was awarded several bronze merits from The Portrait Masters which you can see on my awards page.

Do get in touch if you’d like to find out more.  I’m looking forward to meeting you!

A massive thank you for my headshot photos. I hate my photo being taken but you made the whole session comfortable with such kindness and provided me with a great selection to choose from. I can’t recommend highly enough.

Ruth made me feel very comfortable and this has definitely made me feel more comfortable in my own skin.  Thank you for the beautiful photos which we will cherish and can’t wait to share with our daughter!

Never have I ever felt so happy and confident in my own body, I could hardly recognise this beautiful young woman in the pictures. Ruth’s passion for helping women find love for themselves is truly amazing. Thank you!

I had a lovely experience with Ruth for my latest headshot shoot. She was great at telling and showing me how to pose to make the most of myself. Thank you so much and I look forward to working with you again!

I had an amazing time doing a boudoir photoshoot with Ruth. It made me appreciate not just my body but also my own journey as a business owner, mum, and wife. This whole experience reminded me that I am a strong woman. I got much more from this experience than I was expecting.

Ruth made me feel totally at ease and I actually love the photo of me! The whole process was a really positive experience… I now, at last, feel proud of the images on my website.

The photos are so much better than we imagined they could possibly be and show our business and the team in a great light.
