Even There Shall Thy Hand Lead Me ~ Self-Portrait // February
There was no way I was going to miss doing February's self-portrait on the BEACH while in South Africa earlier this month; so on a windy day my friend Jerusala and I went to the beach in hopes that I would be able to create the vision I had in my mind for this month's portrait.

Jerusala's Babies // Glen & Ruth

Welcome to the first post/portrait in my Fine Art Self-Portrait Challenge for the year 2015! I thought this would be a fun project to challenge my skills and creativity!

Business Highlights of 2014, Goals For 2015
Can you believe 2014 is really over? I can't!! 2014 was truly one amazing and beautiful year for me and my photography!

And it WAS the first year for Ruth Susanna Photography! In the Spring I began working more[...]
