Hi, I'm Ruth Cavanagh, a professional photographer based in Invermere, British Columbia. I capture special moments and memories for families and couples. My goal is to make clients feel comfortable and at ease during their sessions, which allows me to capture natural and authentic moments.
I started taking photos at the age of 15, it made me happy. Filled my soul with peace. I had the pleasure of using a film camera, there was no knowing how the photos would turn out and then seeing them developed was so exciting. I recently was able to work in a darkroom again and the feeling that comes with developing my own photos is something that only comes with the film camera.
I decided when I moved to Invermere that being a photographer is what I wanted to do for a living. I love making people happy and when I bring the client their photos and they smile and cry, and look at me and say "I love myself (and family) in those photos" This is when I know I have done my job. That is truly what I believe photography is all about - making people happy and seeing the smiles on their faces. And the smile on my face when I know I've got that perfect "shot." I feel privileged when I am allowed to be part of a families special moments and I look forward to being part of yours.
When I'm not taking photos, I'm taking photos. But I also spend my time with my 5 year son, camping, taking our dog out for a run.
