Doorstep Portaits

@katherineruthphotography on instagram

I’ve had the best week wandering around Watford, seeing friends and making new ones capturing their #doorstepportraits.

If you are local to Watford and would like to join in with this doorstep portrait project and capture a little memory of #lockdown2020 send me a message (no charge but some people have offered to donate to charity which is amazing and totally optional!) whether you have babies or furry babies or it’s you and some friends who live together, I would love you to be involved – at a socially acceptable distance ofcourse!


I like to offer different styles of photos for you and your family.  We can take natural lifestyle photos, ‘real life’ photos, or more posed ‘studio’ photos.  Both are charming and a lovely way to capture your little ones at whatever age they are. Here are some more natural shots of cheeky chappy Charlie.  His faces were so expressive, and as the 5th babe to his lovely Mumma, the first thumbsucker in the family.


Caitlin Hannah

This little cherub is 4 months old today.  I have to admit, I LOVE being an auntie.  It was such a pleasure to take some photos of the lovely Robbins family.  Caitlin was a natural in front of the camera.  Its very clear shes quite the cheeky so and so, and I am ever so looking forward to getting to know her as she grows up!







To have & to hold

Over the Christmas holidays there was much cause for celebration. Not just for Christmas day! Returning to Church in the New Year we were met with the news of a couple of engagements, when I say a couple I mean 6! All within our 4.30 congregation.  To celebrate such an occasion we threw them a fantastic party (well done to all those involved!) Had a bit of a boogie and even cut some yummy cakes.  Very excited for all of you as you plan and prepare for this next season of your lives!

Mirabelle Hope

Here we go. First of many beautiful babes to grace this page.  I couldn’t help but start with my own.  We had a little fun the other day.  She is definately a little poser in the making.  It is such a delight to be her Mumma. I’m not sure what it is, but there is something adorably cute about dressing up babies as animals, bears, lions, dinosaurs and the like.

Happy New Year!

Its been a while! Apologies for being in hibernation recently.

I’ve had another little project to be working on.

She’s called Mirabelle Hope and she is now 6 months old.  So this cute little face has stolen most of my recent camera time.

Watch this space over the next couple of weeks, re-launching baby and family shoots and a rather exciting engagement party to celebrate a whopping 6 glorious couples will be gracing your screens.
