Suzan Marie - Warrior Woman - Personal Branding Shoot in Hereford
Personal branding photographer UK Becky Rui Hereford

I had soooo much fun photographing dear Suzan back in the Autumn in beautiful Hereford and at her lovely bright home just outside the city.

An incredibly inspiring person, Suzan works with women to help them come back to who they really are, empower themselves and go for what they truly desire in life. She works with coaching clients in her online program and runs in person workshops and events, creating sisterhood, community and conversation.

Having recently moved from her home in Cyprus to the UK with her lovely husband and gorgeous baby twins, they were in the process of settling in, and it felt extra special to be documenting the start of this exciting new chapter with them!

Getting to know about her journey and business was fascinating and inspiring as we mapped out her session and the kinds of photos that would be most useful for her website and social media. As she’s also in the process of launching a podcast AND writing a book!! we created a really fun variety of images for the cover and author portrait which I cant waiiiiit to see how she uses.

On our day we captured such a great variety of photographs and stories within them. Some of the themes at the core of her message are…

  • Self-love, care, connection, body acceptance.

  • Identifying your voice and speaking your truth.

  • Playfulness, adventure, fun, joy!

  • Being a go getter! Acknowledging and overcoming limitations. Letting go of what holds you back from what you really want. Improving your mindset.

  • Learning to be open to love in your life, working as a team in your relationship while staying true to who you are as individuals.

While we wanted to create images that showed Suzan in the way she’d show up for events and client work, we also wanted to capture informal photographs that show her in a very personal way at home, as a wife and in her new local area. We conveyed these themes through the smart and professional portraits at home, intimate boudoir images, photos of her exploring her new town and working on her business (at her workspace and from her bed of course).

When we’re using social media regularly to connect with our prospects, share our message, inspire and educate our clients, it can be super refreshing for them to get a glimpse into our day-to-day lives alongside the polished photos.

When you have a very personal and people-focussed brand, sharing your authentic personality is so important for building genuine, deep and long lasting connection with your clients, and helps your business to be fulfilling and sustainable, as it evolves with you.

I really love to capture those different aspects of my clients lives, because while there are many benefits to looking glam in your photos (it positions you at your best, creates the feeling that you care about the way you present yourself and therefore the quality of your work), it’s not necessarily how we show up every single day, and if that’s true for you it’s great to show that. Humans crave realness and the vulnerability that comes with that.

I really recommend checking out Suzans Instagram here, she is a really brilliant example of consistently showing up, sharing real life and inspiration. Find her online program here!

Joyce Oladipo - Enchant Life - Sexuality Coach & Erotic Influencer - Boudoir Shoot in London

Creating these intimate portraits with Joyce was such an honour and a beautiful thing to do! What a special shoot…

As a sexuality coach and erotic influencer, Joyce works with women internationally to help reconnect them with their sexual power, with pleasure as their birthright, and with the message that happiness comes from within. Part of Joyce’s mission is to help break the taboo around female pleasure and sex, inspiring her clients and women around the world to step into their confidence and power.

Our intention for the photographs was to create radiant and engaging images for her business 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.

We shot in lots of different locations around central London (see more photos from our shoot here), and this was one part of our day that I wanted to share separately on the blog, due to it’s intimate nature and how much of a contrast it is to the rest of our fab shoot.

These images will not be used as the main brand photographs for her soon-to-launch website, but rather as supportive images to share on social media, emails etc where appropriate. A boudoir session like this is also just such a beautiful experience and something I’d love to do more of.

Do go find Joyce on Instagram here and Facebook here. Thank you for having me capture you <3

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!

You can check out more of the photos from our day below, and see Jo’s website here: www.jochrobak.com, and more on the exciting new Interior Design School here: www.idbs.online.

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!

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.
