About Ruth and Kate

We are a mother and daughter portrait team. I started my photographic journey at the age of eight.  My Polaroid camera had pop off flashes and they were hot. I put my camera away to raise my children and picked it back up when Kate got married.  I started Photography by Ruth in 2003 and focused mainly on High School Seniors.  I love photographing seniors and have been doing that for over 10 years.  Kate started photography soon after marrying the love of her life.  She is a mother of two so that makes me a grandmother. Kate has a young and fresh approach to senior photography.

It made sense that when she moved back to the Northwest we would combine our talents. We are more than photographers. We are best friends. Together, we have built a business founded on love for each other and the beauty in all, and styles that complement and enhances each other.  We are now Ruth and Kate Portraits!!!!!!!!!!

This is YOUR year…  let us help YOU make your senior portraits ones you will treasure forever!
