Five powerful questions to ask yourself before your next shoot

becky rui

I love going with the flow and living intuitively, and also find that starting my morning with clear intentions for the day helps me to have the best time, stay on track with my desires and get the most out of my experience!

It's the same with anything - when you have clarity on your desires, you know what you're going for and have more awareness about how close you are in relation what you want.

When it comes to marketing and the photos we're using in our businesses, it's an investment that helps us to position ourselves at our best, share our message in a beautiful way, attract our ideal clients and up level our brand - when it's created from a place of real alignment.

Gorgeous imagery will absolutely help you to expand, grow, create more positive impact in the world through connection... But only if you use it in a way that is engaging, has a clear purpose or call to action alongside what you share.

So here are a few things that I would encourage you to ask yourself ahead of your next shoot to help you start exploring it for yourself, and have the best shoot evaaaa!

Think about your last set of photographs and ask yourself...

  1. Which shots from the last shoot made the biggest impact?
  2. Which handful of photos did you find yourself using again and again?? (....and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again)
  3. Which photographs created the most engagement and connection with your peeps and felt most in integrity for you? Which posts that involved photography converted followers into clients? Check back on your posts and see what was popular.
  4. What kind of images would it have been useful to have more of? What kinds of photos have you been missing in your content? (perhaps more variety of outfits, locations, more head-shots, more photos you can use for Facebook ads, different props to include, different people to come along and get involved in the photos)
  5. What other stories do you want to tell? What different kinds of compositions would be useful for next time? (think Facebook ads, email marketing, blog posts, headers/website banners, headshots...)

When you have the answers to these questions, you can start thinking about your business plans for the next 6-12 months and what you'll need from your photographer this time around. You'll be clearer about what you'll want to come away with this time, what worked best from before, and get the MOST out of your next shoot.

If you're considering refreshing your personal branding photography, apply for a call here and let's explore this together!

I have two spaces left for October photo shoots!

Wishing you a beautiful, intentional week! Big love! Becky xx

Rachel Miller - Personal Branding Shoot in London

Rachel first got in touch with me one weekend after listening the free audio file on my website and getting all kinds of inspired (yay)! I received the most beautiful message from her and loved hearing about how she was taking action on the tips and ideas shared around personal branding and visibility before we had even spoken!

In her business All Things IC, Rachel advises, consults and trains her clients to radically improve their internal communications - from large corporations to small independent businesses, taking the time to understand their unique situation, facilitating more grounded, happier relationships in working environments and in their lives. She is deeply caring, kind, intuitive and a TOTAL expert in what she does...

She was eager to share more of herself in her website and online marketing, allow people to get to know her in a more personal way through imagery. Together we explored her business, her journey so far, her passions and what she loves about this work...

You can absolutely FEEL Rachel's enthusiasm for her work, and how much she lights up when she's talking about it, and I really wanted to get that across in our photos. We wanted to show the different ways she works with her clients, from going in-house with her clients to running masterclasses for other IC professionals, and as someone who is so passionate and inspired about what she's doing, we captured her working on her biz in different settings... She told me she will literally work anywhere she can get her laptop out!

You can check out Rachels value packed blog with over 1100 posts right here, and look at how she's using the photos from our shoot on her site.

Here are the photos from our time together...

Are you ready to share more of yourself in your online marketing and increase your visibility? Get in touch with me here and let's explore the kinds of photos that will help you take your business to the next level!

'If everybody likes you, you're doing something wrong'

becky rui

In my experience and through conversations with clients, it seems most of the time the thing that holds us back from letting ourselves be seen in our businesses, is the fear of being judged and disliked when we do so.

...That unless we look a certain way or copy 'successful' people, we won't be noticed or taken seriously.

Part of being human is that we do make assumptions, we are discerning about what we see, we have preferences and instincts that guide us.

They are a total gift, they help us refine our experience of the world… what we let in, and what we let go of. No matter how much we intuitively see beyond appearances, this is a part of how we do life, how we navigate it.

Some of us vibe, some of us don't. So let it be okay, to not be for everyone.

You never have to pretend to be someone you’re not to impress others or win them over. People feel the fake, it’s not healthy or sustainable and it doesn't feel good at all.

You want what is best for yourself and for all.

If you can feel comfortable with who you are in your business, KNOW the value you provide, and use imagery and words that just feel like you, and really shine with your truth, then whoever truly resonates with that is likely going to be a great match, and whoever doesn’t? That’s cool too. That’s what you want!

We're not here for everyone, and we never could be.

This conversation reminds me of the quote... ‘If everybody likes you, you’re doing something wrong’. As a people pleaser I have always found it so interesting and profound.

It's nice to be likeable, and it's okay to keep yourself to yourself too... This isn't about forcing anything. But instead of letting fear of 'being yourself' block our flow and full expression, instead of getting drained trying to be liked by everyone, keep being brave enough to let your realness be the thing that sets you apart.

So... how can we continue doing that? Regularly check in with yourself about the way you're interacting with your community and clients. Journal it out, talk about it with your coach or accountability buddy! Here are some questions to ponder...

  • Am I simply being myself in my biz, or am I trying to cater to everybody

  • Do I feel like my website/marketing is a true representation of me and my services?

  • Do I feel in integrity with what I have been sharing lately?

  • Do I still feel aligned with my photography and copy, or does this need updating or tweaking?

  • Am I excited about, and proud of my content?

  • Do I feel like my true self when I'm working in/on my biz?

  • How would it feel to bring more of my whole self in to my business?

  • In what other ways can I start to bring more of my personality and voice to my marketing/biz/brand?

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this...

If you're alllllll about sharing your truth, but struggling around this visibility piece, let's talk. And if you're interested in exploring your next personal branding shoot, I have one space left towards the end of August and four spaces available in September! Email me to book in our call by clicking HERE.

With love and wishing you a beautiful rest of your week! xxx

Ebonie P Allard - Personal Branding Shoot Bristol

becky rui

My conversations with Ebonie leading up to her shoot (and during all of our time together!) were so inspiring and exciting... Ebonie is the Entrepreneur Enabler. The Misfit Maven. She helps her clients to return to their inner clarity, confidence, courage and sense of calm - reminding themselves of who they really are and living in accordance with their own guidance and powerful uniqueness.

She's a coach, author, creator of incredible tools and products to help her peeps reconnect with their truth. She's super real, down to earth and totally magic!

On her shoot we not only wanted to show her in her new home, working, chilling, doing her thing - but also show her inner world. We co-created a fantastical scene on the beach near where she lives which really revealed Ebonies amazing sense of play, beauty and wonder shine out, she was a total Goddess!

These photos really stand out online and in her marketing because they're sooo unique and personal, and they totally break the mold of what a personal branding shoot can be. She's all about that.

Check out her website here, get involved with her awesome Facebook group here and you can buy her brilliant and inspirational book here. The flower crown was made by the gorgeous Katie Kearns.

Ellie Burscough - Personal Branding Shoot in Greece

becky rui

In January I flew out to Santorini to photograph three incredible women - this is the awesome Ellie Burscough. Ellie is based in Australia and was taking out a few months to travel Europe with her family, running her business as she went and soaking up the beauty and culture of so many amazing destinations! THE DREAM!

It was fascinating to learn about Ellies life and journey through her business, as a personal trainer, mama and competitive powerlifter(!). She coaches her clients around their mindset and strategy to share real value with the world and generate an incredible income. She helps her clients to leverage their unique gifts and offer, and helps them build what they do around their lifestyle and personal goals as she does. I really enjoyed seeing the way she kept in touch with her peeps during our days together, she's an example of a woman in business truly walking her talk - such a pleasure to capture!

On this shoot we wanted to show a mixture of things - being able to work from anywhere as she does, showcase this beautiful Greek island, and enjoying time away from her work. She wanted to use the photos on her website, in social media, emails and promotions across different platforms which you can see on her Facebook page here and website here. I love seeing what she’s sharing about and find her message and content super empowering - go look!!
