My photo2.jpg


I am Ruth Ganev and I am a portrait photographer. I live in the beautiful seacoast city of Portsmouth, New Hampshire with my husband, my son and our two cats. I lived for many years in New York City and have a degree in Fashion Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology. I started designing and sewing bridal wear when I was in high school. I have always had a passion for image making, both behind and in front of the camera. We take our inspiration from many different places and they all affect what we are doing at this moment in time. I opened my photography business about six years ago.

Since I have such an interest in fashion design and studied it for years, my photographs are very inspired by fashion and fashion magazines. I love to make people look as elegant and beautiful as possible, like they stepped out of a magazine! To me, it is all about telling a story in the most elegant, dramatic and beautiful way possible. My calm disposition will put you at ease and help out the most reluctant of camera shy party members. Everyone has beauty and I will take photos that reflect your beautiful self.

I look forward to hearing all about your story and to provide you with beautiful photographs! If you are interested in having epic, fashion-inspired, magazine style photos, give me a call at (718) 928-5663, or email me at
