Today we’d like to introduce you to Ruth Malvoisin.
Hi Ruth, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Growing up my dad would always have a camera in his hands taking pictures of my siblings and me. Every Sunday, we knew it was picture time because we were all dressed up for church. As embarrassing as some of those photos are, I’m grateful for him taking all those pictures and capturing our childhood for us to look back on. That’s what led me to want to do for other people without one person missing out on being included in the photo. My love for photography and capturing moments definitely came from him. I’ve also got to admit that I was obsessed with watching America’s Next Top Model, and I was always looking through magazines and blogs. Photography is what makes me happiest, so I just kept creating!
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It’s definitely been a bumpy road. After moving and having to start over was very discouraging. I’ve been on a pattern of stopping and starting over again because of things such as school, new jobs, and just life, but I’ve finally found my rhythm, and I have been connecting with a lot of people, so it’s been real. Good!
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am a portrait and lifestyle photographer. I also help execute photos for brands and influencers so they can reach their target audience with quality images. I’ve helped models collect images for their portfolios and helped others build their online presence. I am so proud of the way that I have learned to capture and edit melanin skin. My biggest struggle when I wanted to get my pictures taken was trying to find a photographer that I knew would capture my skin in a way that’s pleasing. When I realized how much of a problem it was, it became a goal of mine to always make my clients look their best and be confident in the images they’re receiving and not worry about their skin.
What do you like best about our city? What do you like least?
I love all the hidden gems. There’s always somewhere new to explore or visit. From gardens to alleyways, you will always find somewhere to create. I least like the traffic, but I guess I’ve gotten used to it.
