About Me

Welcome to my photo blog!  Thank you so much for visiting me!

My name is Ruthmarie Hicks and if you want to reach out to me, you can by any of the following:


Throughout life, I always seem to have managed to take the road less traveled…

My journey into photography began in the laboratory where I did photographed  cells tagged fluorescent markers.  Little did I know at the time  that this activity would help lead to a career pathway later on.  I picked up photography again in 2009 because when I became a real estate agent, I wanted to provide my sellers with  every edge I could in a difficult market, and good listing photos are key.  That morphed into a new career path for me as I spent more and more time photographing homes for other agents.   My background with buyers and sellers helps me present homes and businesses in their best possible light.


J. Philip Faranda – J Philip Real Estate:

My firm has used Ruthmarie for professional photography of our listings and consider her our “go to” professional. Our track record in faster sales and better transactions with the listings where her pictures are used is undeniable, and we will continue to enthusiastically endorse her. 

From Carolyn Schoemer –  Keller Williams NY Realty:

Ruth Marie is an awesome photographer.   I have her take most of my properties because her photos are really top quality and my clients love them.  As a result I am certain the properties attract more interest online and sell more quickly.  Her rates are reasonable and she is not only dependable but also a pleasure to deal with.  I highly recommend her work.  

From Crsytal Hawkins-Syska – Keller Williams NY Realty:

These pictures are freaking awesome!!! You rock.  Thanks so much!!!!

As a small business start-up, I deal with many companies that offer products and services.  I find huge differences among them in terms of professional behavior and dedication to quality.  My experience with your portrait photography service has been stellar on both counts.   From the beginning, you guided the process beautifully, always taking into account my style and preferences.  You’ve been quick and responsive, always ready to do what it takes to produce quality photographs.  I am very pleased with the result and would recommend your portrait or photography services to anyone.

Rarely do I leave my home without a camera and I photograph my way through Westchester County as well as other locations both near and far,  using my camera, my car and my feet.  As such I get a front row seat  observing and recording the beauty, history  and people of Westchester and its surrounds…My fine art photography reflects the local color that is the Hudson River Valley. 

Thank you for viewing my page…. and have a wonderful day!
