Baltimore Newborn-Baby-Maternity Photographer | Natural Family Photography » Ruthie Skillman is a Baltimore, MD photographer specializing in natural newborn, baby, maternity and family photography. Serving Maryland, Baltimore, and Howard County.


I’m Ruthie–wife to Pete, mama to John & Isaac, and a photographer based in Catonsville, Maryland. I grew up about 15 minutes south of Catonsville, in Columbia, Maryland. After high school, I joined the Air Force and studied Korean. I then went on to earn a B.A. in French from Towson University, and a Nursing degree (A.D.N.) from Howard Community College.
I enjoy photographing newborns because they are so fresh, and because they bring love with them when they enter this world. Our kids change and grow so quickly–I get to preserve these long days before they become short years.

I love crisp fall afternoons, preferably rainy ones. I get carried away when it comes to Christmas decorations. (Is it wrong to be convinced you need a bigger house just for your Christmas tree collection?) If I don’t order my Starbucks chai latte under a simpler-than-Ruth/Ruthie pseudonym such as “Amy,” I end up walking around with a cup that says “Bruce” or “Lucy.” Which is ok, too. I love to laugh. Dumb and Dumber remains a classic favorite.

I’d be honored to witness your memories and capture them for you to keep forever. Please contact me to schedule your session.
