Rachel Royall - Director of Communication NHS - Personal Branding Shoot in London
Rachel Royall NHS Director Communications Becky Rui London Photography-001.jpg

It was great to work with Rachel Royall, Director of Communications and Women’s Network Lead for the NHS on her personal branding portrait shoot this summer.

As a speaker, writer, visiting lecturer and internal communications expert, she was looking for up to date, engaging new portraits to use on her social media, alongside articles, interviews and other opportunities that she was confident to share.

It was so interesting to learn the story of her career so far, from her time studying in London at Kings College, to working in communications within local and national public services including the London Ambulance Service & The Department of Health, the UK Government and HMRC. I wanted to bring elements of her journey and vision together in her session, so we chose locations around the city that told different parts of it on our day, which was so special!

Rachel’s work is based on her strong values of openness, integrity, transparency and honesty.

She most loves the service aspect of what she does, helping to improve the organisational performance of companies and organisations, their reputation and relationship with their users and customers. She has set up social media feeds for example to give voice to end users of online services for the NHS, to give platform to the public, and holds a vision to improve society through good communication, trust, and creating spaces for connection.

You can follow Rachel and the work she is doing on twitter at @RachRoyall. Here are a few photos from our time together!

Jo Chrobak - Interior Designer & Mentor - London Brand Shoot
Jo Chrobak Interior Designer Personal Brand Photography London Becky Rui-003.jpg

It was so exciting to work with amazing Jo Chrobak on her personal branding shoot this Autumn. Our first call was so great and interesting - we could have talked for hours! I loved getting to know about her journey - from her life growing up in the Blue Mountains just outside Sydney (which is like, one of my most faaavourite places on Earth!) to her extensive work in architecture and design in Australia and now the UK, some of her favourite projects, her values and passions, personal development and spiritual journey, and of course to find out her vision for the future. She’s such an experienced expert in architecture and interior design, and she’s one of the funniest, kindest, most creative and high-vibing people I know.

One of the things that was so clear about her work is that she isn’t just looking at projects with an aesthetic and style oriented approach (although she does create the most stunning spaces as you’ll see from her Instagram), but this is about co-creating an environment with her clients (whether it’s a personal or corporate setting) that positively impacts the way they feel, that allows them to express their inner world or values, that enables them to live the way they want to live, to feel good in their space, to be happy in it and to share it. She does this by getting to know her clients at a deep level, understand what’s important to them, and works with their personality and taste to design a unique space that allows all of this to thrive.

With her 20+ years of experience in the industry, she also mentors and trains up and coming interior designers which she clearly loves!! She was preparing to launch the Interior Designer’s Business School when she contacted me, and needed photographs for the brand new website and for her existing site to position her in this and provide her with lots of personalised photos to use across her Insta and web pages.

Most of my clients are in the middle of a rebrand when they come to me, or are about to launch something new for which they need up to date photographs, and in this case Jo was looking for both rebranding shots and photos for the launch of her new business.

I wanted to capture her as the accomplished leader that she is, while also in a friendly and creative way, showing how she works with clients, the process she takes them through, and the personal connection she creates so naturally.

Everything was so in flow on the day and we had the most fun and creative time together at our interior and outdoor locations. Her wonderful husband Daurius couldn’t have been more supportive and helpful as he brought the best vibes to our session, helped us out with the space and transported us, and we got a few lovely shots with him too!

Joyce Oladipo - Enchant Life - Personal Branding Shoot London

It was sooo hard to narrow down the many favourites I had from this shoot with sexuality coach and erotic influencer Joyce of Enchant Life this summer… going through the shots again filled my heart with appreciation to remember our amazing session and all our inspired conversations around it. It was so divine!! So fun and so playful.

Joyce works with women internationally who are wanting to reconnect with their sexual power and pleasure as their birthright. They are feeling stuck, blocked or numb and are struggling to reach that place of connection on their own. Joyce’s work is also about breaking the taboo around female pleasure and sex, and inspire her clients and women around the world to step into their confidence.

Our intention was to create radiant and engaging images for her new brand that felt empowered, feminine and enchanting, tying in some of the rich colours and textures associated with her branding that she shared with me before our day.

With the business name and theme of enchantment in mind, we explored ideas for perfect locations… She was flying over from Luxemborg to London for the session and I envisioned…

  • luxury hotel spaces for the themes of quality, worth and high vibration,

  • the beautiful gardens we are blessed with in our capital city to symbolise pleasure as a birthright, as a part of our nature, as flowers bloom with ease and without self consciousness,

  • vibrant London city settings to show her love of travel and connection with the world,

  • and boudoir images to bring the sensual, self-love aspect of her work to the session.

We wanted to get the essence of love, connection, orgasmic life and fun coming through, and a sense of intimacy and harmony.

Over our day in London we captured so many stories relevant to her life and brand for her soon to launch website, social media, and adverts. From the boudoir shots, business portraits, dreamy garden shots and city vibe photos and image including props relevant to this work - we certainly created a lot that will be great for many of her posts online. You can check out her instagram here and Facebook page here.

Here are some of my favourite images from our day, and I’m going to share the boudoir images separately, as they were so intimate and beautiful I felt they deserved a post all to themselves!

I'm on a Podcast! - Adulting With Ebonie

I had so much fun on Ebonie Allard’s amazing podcast @adultingwithebonie, of which I am a huge fan! Podcasts are one of my go-to’s when I’m working on photos from my computer, road tripping or cooking, and are one of my favourite ways to receive information, get to know about people, learn, and be entertained!

Each week, Ebonie and her guest discuss what it means to be a kickass and kind adult in our modern world, share personal stories and ideas about how to navigate that and explore the most fascinating and important topics such as sovereignty, creativity, privilege, intimacy, love and more. In this episode we talk about:

✔️ Age. And the ways it is and isn’t important
✔️ How taking risks adds value to our lives
✔️ The fluidity of identity
✔️ How our environment affects our sense of self
✔️ Where to start with creating an environment that works for you

Plus, we talk about learning to trust and take great leaps of faith in order to grow and evolve our identities out of their comfort zones.

I’ve known Ebonie for a few years and love our friendship and our creative brand photo shoots, and it was a real honour to collaborate on her podcast!

Listen to the episode on iTunes or any of your fav podcast providers. Link to the show is in Ebonie’s bio and at www.adultingwithebonie.com.

Patti Buttrick - Rapid Therapy - London Personal Brand Shoot

What a joy it was to photograph beautiful Patti earlier this summer. She was looking for a series of portraits for her website as she launches her London based Rapid Transformation Therapy & Clinical Hypnotherapy business.

We explored her WHY, what it is that she most loves about this work, how powerfully it transforms the lives of her clients, and through their journey with her allows them to really live their life in all it’s wonder. Do go and find out more about her amazing work here if you’re curious!

Personal branding is so much about building relationships, and for your photography to be effective, it must be honest and in alignment with the work you do.

One of the most important things about the pre-shoot process and the shoots I do, is to get clear about who your ideal clients actually are. When you know who it is that your business is here to serve, we can feel into the energy of where those people might be at right now, how they’re feeling when they’re looking for the support they need (in this case, to overcome the fears, challenges and anxieties that hold them back), and therefore what energies we need to tap into on the day of the shoot and capture.

Personal branding is so much about building relationships, and for your photography to be effective it must be honest and in alignment with the work you do - with a sense of connection that helps the people you love to work with resonate with you. It should assist your ideal clients in getting to know you, feeling truly safe to reach out, connect and work with you.

I loved learning about her personal journey and experiences that led her to create this business, and the values of integrity, respect, efficiency and enjoyment that shine through her work and personality, and the results she gets with her clients.

We had such a fun time creating a variety of portraits and story telling shots and I am thrilled to see how she’s using them. See what Patti had to say about her experience of the shoot here.

Client Feature - Kim Morrison & The Art of Self Love

It’s so beautiful to see some of the ways my dear client and friend Kim Morrison has been using the photos from our Paris photo shoot - and amazing to see the launch of her new book The Art of Self Love!

I am honoured to see one of our photographs on its cover - it just glows with her beautiful energy as do the magazine spreads below.

It’s such a joy to follow my clients journeys after all we do together, to be a part of capturing it is a real pleasure! Kim is one of the kindest, most inspiring and beautiful women I have the pleasure of knowing 💙 You can see more photos from our shoot on the blog here.

I believe if you’re really wanting to increase your visibility and attract quality PR opportunities it’s so important to have a bank of personal brand photography ready that you feel confident with so that you’re all set when they come along, to share your message and story.
