My web provider that I've been using for the past 12 years was sold to another web provider a few months ago. Since then we've been having issues with our email. I had no idea that some of my email replies were not reaching the recipient. It's so frustrating because client messages are important to me and I pride myself in my quick replies. Situations like this can be devastating to a small business like myself. If you have emailed any of my business accounts and have not received a reply chances are my email reply just didn't get to you. I am deeply sorry. Your messages are very important to me so I felt that switching to a gmail account would guarantee that email communication would run smoothly. I've changed my email to chrisrutanstudios [a] gmail.com. Please disregard any of my old business email addresses as I've accumulated quite a few over the years. Thank you!

I saw myself in the glass reflection the moment I was capturing this image with my camera. I usually try to avoid documenting my reflection because it can sometimes take away from the image but when I noticed these little cuties grinning at me I had to snap fast. #selfportrait #whereisyourpolarizerwhenyouneedit

One of my freelance gigs is designing, DIYing, styling and photographing parties for American Greetings. Here is some of the images from the “Unicorn” party I did for them. This party was a dream come true, my inner child was squealing the entire time! 😱 I handmade all of the hats, candy party favors, and tissue paper poms and tassel banners. 🦄 🌈 🎈 .

After all the hustle and bustle of wedding/portrait/holiday season (I have a handmade business too @rigmaroledesign and the beginning of the year=inventory) I am finally able to sit down and share a lot of what I’ve been working on. Who else has trouble juggling productivity and social media updates? 🙋🏻‍♀️

One of my favorite stories as a child was The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe so this shoot was so much fun for me. I took this for Magical Theatre Company in Barberton, OH. (Go see one of their plays! You won’t regret it!) 🦁 ❄️ 🏰 .

The photo I took of my kiddos for the Canton Museum of Art was featured in The Akronist article about the Night at the Museum - Free Family Festival last night. (which I also had the honor of photographing.)

This Saturday night, the Canton Museum of Art will be inhabited by live nocturnal animals from the Akron Zoo, storytelling, geology activities, yoga, totem-making and other opportunities for Night at the Museum - Free Family Festival. The event will coincide with Gary Spinosa’s “AVATARS: Relics from the Future,” benevolent sculptures that combine human, animal and architectural forms that hearken back to an ancient past. http://akronist.com/canton-museum-hosts-night-museum-family-festival-may-20/
