Hello and thanks for taking the time to look at my work. I hope you can see that I love what I do.
I am a wife to a very wonderful and loving husband and a mother of a beautiful daughter who inspires me to slow down and appreciate "the little things" that are truly magical in our every day life.
My passion for photography was born with the birth of my baby girl "Alexandria" in September 2009. Although it's quite recent, I developed a love for photography long ago in high school where I took beginner and advance classes with my 35mm borrowed camera. For over two years, I photographed people in a variety of posed and candid shots. I received several awards in my high school competitions and it was then that I realized I had a knack for photography. Three years after High School I entered the world of Special Events & Promotions, shortly after it was Music Entertainment and worked with three major record labels (Sony / Warner Music / BMG) and made it my career for more than a decade. I credit my past experience of working with Top music artists, celebrities as well as the best photographers of giving me the confidence & creativity of having the "eye" to capture the magic in front of the camera.
There is nothing more true than when they say "They grow up too fast", enjoy every moment!
Time does fly by, and I feel privileged to be able to capture some of these special moments of you and your family.
Thank you and enjoy!
Mindy Ruder :)
