Vee - DoTERRA - Essential Oils - Personal Branding Photo Shoot, Brighton

becky rui

It was a total pleasure to photograph dear Vee around Brighton last year, and if you've ever hung out with me you'll know how excited I would have been about the epic SUNSET we got this day, on the beach no less!

With her unshakeable passion for wellbeing, Vee helps her clients and team to live their best life through natural medicine and create financial freedom through the business opportunities of doTERRA. I use these oils myself and they have had a profound effect in my life - I use them every day now!

On this shoot we wanted to show aspects of Vee's personal life that tie in with her lifestyle business such as being in nature, the beach, enjoying the awesome coffee shop culture, self care and meditation, exploring Brighton, working on her business from home, and of course showcasing the oils. She uses Instagram quite a lot for her work, so I wanted to create a series of personalised 'stock photos' for social, as well as plenty of portraits.

Vee is one of the first friends I made after my move to Brighton and what a beautiful soul she is. She has such a natural ability to put people at ease, is an amazing listener and is truly committed to natural health and supporting others on their health journey.

Take a look at her Instagram here where you can find out more about her work and the oils, and do check out her high-vibe, informative Insta-stories, they are very inspiring.

Here are some of the photos we made together!

Kellie Sabey Homes - Interior Design - Personal Branding Shoot Oxfordshire

becky rui

It was so lovely to work with interior designer Kellie Sabey recently! We captured portraits of her alongside images of some of the homes she has designed. From our first conversations (and from seeing some of the stunning interiors she has transformed) it was clear that she has a real talent for drawing out her clients true tastes and interests to make their home space a very meaningful one...

With her extraordinary creativity, she finds a way to bring personality, beauty and functionality to each project. Our aim for this session was to create natural and friendly portraits of her at home, showcase her work, and capture her working with clients. As a mother we also wanted to show Kellie with her gorgeous girls and (their pup!) and show that you can have a beautiful home that is gorgeous AND practical for family living! It was such a great day!

5 Reasons I've Booked My Own Photoshoot for 2018

becky rui

Helloooo! I hope you had a great first month of 2018. Since my last update some exciting things have been going on that I wanted to share with you!

 The launch meeting of The Space Brighton!

The launch meeting of The Space Brighton!

  1. I’m now coaching + mentoring creative entrepreneurs - something I've wanted to do for a long time - I was waiting for the 'right time' to offer this and after a flurry of inquiries, I decided to go for it! I'm LOVING supporting others on their journey and have received some amazing feedback from my new clients as they get clear on their next steps. If you're interested in coaching with me, send me a message and let's speak!
  2. Fab personal branding shoots are coming up in the UK and beyond (including Italy in February with amazing Grace Kelly!) woohoo!
  3. I launched an in-person monthly membership group for creatives in Brighton with my dear friend JudeThe Space! It was absolutely beautiful for us to bring people together, deliver meditations, trainings on mindset, meaningful conversations about the creative & business life, and set intentions for the month ahead. Excited for our next meeting on 15th Feb! There are a couple of spaces if you'd like to join us. (Yay come to Brighton!). I'm feeling so grateful for all of these exciting things to be unfolding.

Another thing I'm excited about is my own upcoming photo shoot!

Below I'm sharing my top five reasons that booking a photoshoot is transformational not only for your branding and marketing, but for your mindset, your vision and confidence. I hope you find these points useful and thought provoking! Let me know what you think...

I have one space left for a photo shoot in February and three places in March, so if you're taking your business to the next level in 2018 and need vibrant new photographs to help get your message out there, email me here :)

With love as always,

5 Reasons I've Booked My Own Photoshoot for 2018

Photography has a magical way of evoking emotion, creating connection and bringing us together... you know that from looking at the portraits in galleries, or from the way photos have drawn you to buy from people online (or turned you away!).

I use photography all across my website as a way to infuse it with my personality, on social media, and in my emails to my list, it works really well. I found it interesting that my 'top nine' from 2017 (the most 'liked' images) included 4/9 photos of me... It goes to show how much people engage with the PERSON behind the business and the message. How are you showing up in yours?

When you offer a service that is personal, it's important that your clients and followers can connect with you from the start. Updating my shots is something I’ve been thinking about for a while, as a lot has shifted since my last shoot: I moved cities, there were big changes in my business and personal life, and, like, my hair has grown loads!

Having a new photoshoot is of course a considerable investment, and sometimes sending money into our businesses can feel scary, especially when there are so many different ways that we could invest it for different types of returns. How do you know whether your photo shoot is really going to pay off? Below are my top five reasons that I believe in the power and investment in personal branding photography, and what I benefit from, every time I do a shoot. I had no idea how transformational it really was until I did it!

1. I get soooo much clarity on my personal brand, my message, my offerings and my next steps. To make sure we co-create photos that will resonate with my business and to get the most out of the shoot, I take myself through the process that I coach my clients through; a series of deep and thoughtful questions. It takes me to the core of my business as I evaluate my brand, values, ideal clients, direction, plans for my marketing and more. This is a space I looove to hold for my clients, and is a transformational part of the process before the shoot day is even here. It's been amazing to do this for myself.

2. I feel renewed energy in my biz, commitment to my mission and my peeps When we take a scary exciting leap in the direction of our GROWTH, we show ourselves that we believe in ourselves and feel fired up about our power to make a bigger positive impact in the world. (Sometimes making a sizeable investment in yourself that challenges you to SEE and honour yourself will do that!).

3. I understand how my clients feel, create better content and a better photoshoot experience. Knowing what having a shoot is like from my clients perspective helps me to give the best advice, support and content to my clients and followers from my personal experience. It also demonstrates my genuine care and helps to create a deeper personal connection. What difference has investing in the type of work that you offer made to you and your clients experience?

4. I feel way more confident to share online! When the photographs I'm using feel like me, I am more likely to show up, I feel more at ease and happy about how I come across. When we're using shots that are really out of date or out of alignment, it feels draining to share them. Sometimes this actually stops us from showing up at all which means the world doesn't get to hear the message you are here to share, and obviously this is very damaging for your business.

5. I quickly create more engagement with my clients and followers. Because... A) I have brand new valuable content to share (see point 3!)
B) I share more because I have new photos and it's fun to update everything!
C) Google ranks your website higher in search results the more recently updated it was with visual content - therefore updating your website with new images will help boost its ranking.
D) I have maintained a personal relationship with my clients who genuinely care and are interested in how I've evolved since my last photos, and are excited to see the new shots!

I'm going back to this blog post below as I prepare for my shoot: Five powerful questions to ask yourself before your next shoot

If updating your photographs is something you know you want to do to start this year, email me by replying to this message.

Let's catch up and explore the kinds of photographs that will best serve you in sharing your message, connecting with your ideal clients, and making the world a better place.

I've got one space left for a February session three spaces available for March... (omg yay Springtime!!

Speak soon and big hugs,

Emma Deery - Yoga Teacher - Personal Branding London

becky rui

Meet amazing Emma... yogi, actress and new mama!!

From our first conversations about a year ago, I knew we were going to have a lot of fun working together... I loved learning about her journey as an actress, through to her yoga teacher training in India. She was looking for new photography to promote her London based yoga classes, one-on-one teaching, and to show more of her own lifestyle on her website and social media. We wanted to create photos that really showed her love of the practice and teaching, let her playfulness shine through and give a glimpse of her personal life, helping her followers get to know her better.

Before the day we explored her values, ideal clients and how she was planning to promote her work in the upcoming months. We mapped out our day together, the kinds of photographs that would best serve her, and gathered all the props and outfits to bring it together!

These are the photos from the first of our two shoots last year - it was a real joy to capture her lead her class in the very natural, intuitive and present way that she does, and with so much fun and humour! The shoot took place at the London studio she teaches from, the beautiful house of a friend nearby, and her own home.

You can check out Emmas inspiring work and stories on Instagram here, and her website with more info here:

You're invited: The Space Brighton

becky rui

I'm sooo excited to announce the launch of The Space Brighton with you today, a project that my dear friend Jude and I were inspired to create! So, introducing...

For Creatives and Creative Entrepreneurs

A monthly space to:

Get Connected. Be yourself. Meet fellow creatives. Bring focus. Find clarity. Be supported. Receive coaching. Hold intentions. Share your challenges. Set goals. Be held accountable. Grow your business. Get out of your office!

When: Thursday 18th January 2018 10am-12:30pm
When: ONCA Gallery meeting room, Brighton
Price: £7

The Space is a new approach to growing your creative business, progressing your career and making connections in a way that feels true to you. It’s not about networking in the traditional sense – putting your game face on every week, pitching your pitch and pretending you’ve got this whole creative business/career thing NAILED!

It’s about showing up wherever you’re at, taking time for yourself to reconnect, feel energised about your next steps and get to know likeminded creatives. It’s a space for you to receive the support and coaching you need to keep putting one foot in front of the other, and growing this business or career you feel so passionately about… Because let’s face it, sometimes it can be bloody tough!

We meet once a month from 10 -12.30pm and over the course of our morning we allow whatever needs to be in The Space to unfold without pressure, while still maintaining a schedule and agenda that allows for discovery, learning, support, one to one coaching, group exercises, intention and purpose. We want you to leave The Space every month feeling invigorated, inspired and excited about the things you’re going to focus on and the intentions you’re setting for the following four weeks. This means that sometimes, it might be about letting the crap out so you can let the good stuff in! Ultimately, our aim as a group is to create a space where we feel safe to share, get support on our individual challenges, and ultimately grow in our personal and professional lives.

 The ever so lovely Jude!

The ever so lovely Jude!

So how did this come about? A little while ago, my friend Jude and I were catching up over tea at the lovely Trading Post Cafe in Brighton. It had been a few months since we'd last met, we reflected on our years so far, we shared about our successes and the challenges we'd been facing in our lives and businesses, shared advice and brainstormed ideas! I LOVE our conversations!

Sometimes it's hard to get perspective on whatever you're facing, and it is so so helpful to talk it through with a friend who may be able to inspire a new idea or show you what may be hiding in your blind spots. It was great...

We reflected on how important coming together like this is for self employed people and creatives, especially for those of us who are often working alone. Suddenly at the same moment, we had the idea to create an opportunity to actually DO THAT, with and for a wider community here in Brighton!

Whether things are flowing for you, or you're feeling totally stuck, taking time to check in with yourself and see where you're at, meet likeminded people, clarify your goals, talk about what's going on for you is so important.


I really believe in the power and value of community, friendship and self-connection and am really looking forward to co-creating this special space.

I would LOVE to see you there if this calls to you. And, if you know someone who would benefit from being a part of this exciting new group, please pass on this link! Thank you.

Big hug! Becky xx

A Beginners Guide to Personal Branding (an interview!)

becky rui

Hey you! I hope you're having a great week so far.

Soooo... do you ever get in a bit of a spin about your personal brand? Like, how am I supposed to present myself? WTF this whole 'positioning' thing is all about? Maybe you're asking yourself questions like, how much of my real personality should I allow to come through in my business? How much is too much? Can I actually be myself in my work with clients and in my marketing, AND be seen as professional, dependable and a leader in my field?

Whether you've been running your business for years and years, or are new to this whole thang - whether you're networking online or in person - it's something many of us are constantly thinking about and reviewing, and honestly... it can get confusing sometimes. As we work with our clients, engage with different audiences and refine our message, our work evolves. Our interests and our lives naturally change.

The person we were in our photos taken three years ago is not necessarily who we are anymore (or maybe even in the photos you had done last year!). The person who made those classes, wrote that e-book, programs etc, has learnt and experienced a LOT more since then and has new insight to offer. The style of our work with our clients has become even more effective and streamlined. Our personal lives have obviously affected our businesses too.. maybe our families have grown, we moved city or country, changed our circle of friends, lifestyle habits, got married, whatever. How has your visible personal brand changed as you have?

We're being called to interact in a more and more authentic way as entrepreneurs... but what does that mean when we think about 'branding ourselves' and our true identity, as human beings, spiritual beings and business owners? Surely it's just about keeping it real?

I'd love to share some light on all of this with you today...

A Beginners Guide To Personal Branding

I was thrilled to be interviewed for my dear client and friend Rachel Millers amazing blog (All Things IC), where I...

  • Dove deep into my definition of personal branding through my seven years of shooting business portraits for entrepreneurs (and seen the whole way of using photography and concept of 'being visible' change a TONNE!)
  • Why your personal brand is an important biz piece to be aware of, whether you're running your own company or are currently part of an organisation
  • How you can improve the quality and consistency of your own personal brand, how to think about photography, what it's like to collaborate on a photo shoot with me, and lots more.

Check out the interview right here.

I hope you find this interview really helpful. Do forward this on to anyone you know who'd benefit from our advice and experience.

 Here's a photo of beautiful Rachel from our shoot earlier this year. 

Here's a photo of beautiful Rachel from our shoot earlier this year. 

I'd absolutely love to know what you're feeling around the definition of personal branding - what it means to you, and the kinds of insights or challenges you have around this. Everything's better when we share and stay connected. If you'd like to talk further about your own positioning and photography for your business, email me at and let's find a time to talk!

I have a couple of spaces available for photo shoots before the end of the year. How would powerful new photography serve you as we get ready for 2018? What are you going to be launching? How will you be using social media? What will you need to have updated photos for?

Check out what my clients are saying here.

With love as always, and thanks for reading!
