BIO: Ruth began her career in photography in 2003 when she opened her studio in Averill Park, NY. Using the massive array of costumes she aquired from a previous business and her love for children along with her imaginative mind, it was an easy transition to create a niche market for Norman Rockwell-like images. She joined PPSNYS in 2010, followed by PPA in 2015 when she began working on her PPA Masters degree. Ruth has earned numerous awards and Merits at PPA International and State level competitions including Merits, Courts of Honor and Judge’s Choice Awards.
