Hello! I’m Ruth, a portrait photographer, specialising in newborn babies and children. I have a lovely little studio in Ardrossan, North Ayrshire but I serve the whole of Ayrshire & Arran and the Glasgow area. If you are browsing through my website there is a high chance you are expecting a baby, planning your dream wedding or looking for some lovley pictures of your children (fur babies included). So before you go any further I though I should introduce myself. 

I live in Saltcoats with my fiancé Robert, our 2 year old son Max and Flo. Flo is the newest addition to our family she is our gorgeous 4 legged fur friend. Flo is a stunning miniature dachshund dog and we just love her to bits. 

My love of taking photos started when Max was born and I was taking about 700 pictures of him daily. I then started to get curious on how I could improve the images (lighting etc) and from that my obsession started. After many late nights learning this amazing skill I then took a HUGE leap and decided to start my own business and this was when Ruth Charlotte Photography was born.

My photography style is luxurious and timeless, and I just love capturing your children's unique characters. The best thing about my job is getting to meet all your little ones. My clients choose me for my fun but laid back approach to each session. They value beautiful photography and want to remember those tiny toes and cheeky little smiles. You need a photographer who you can trust and who will give you an wonderful experience from start to finish – and that’s exactly what I promise to do. 

I’m a proud member of BANPAS – the Baby And Newborn Photographers Association – an association that promotes safe working practices amongst newborn and baby photographers. I am also a member of SWPP Society. I have undertaken training on how to pose newborn babies safely and at no point during your photoshoot session is your baby put at risk. I can promise they are in very safe hands.
