My name is Claudia Ruiz; Welcome to Taken by Raven!
We are based in South Plainfield New Jersey.
I've always loved photography, and understood the importance of documenting life with pictures. My grandmother and I would spend hours looking at pictures in photo albums, and this enhanced my love of storytelling through photos.
With the help and support of my husband and children, as well as family and friends, I decided to take the leap into professional photography. It has been a road full of ups and downs, but I would not change it at all!
I also work as a site manager in a pediatric office. That has given me great experience in providing excellent costumer service, as well as the ability to work with children of any age.
I love all types of photography, but I am really passionate about children, maternity and families.
My family and I have also embarked in event photography and videography. It is an exciting field and we love the challenge!
Our team consists of My husband as second shooter/ director of videography, my 2 children as videographers and more recently my brother in law as assistant for video and photography.
Thank you to all our existing and future clients, for allowing us to come into your life, and capture your most precious memories.
