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.

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.

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

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

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!

You can find out more about Kellies work at kelliesabeyhomes.com.

Emma Deery - Yoga Teacher - Personal Branding London

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.

Bunmi Aboaba - The Sober Advantage - Personal Branding Shoot in Santorini

It was so exciting to shoot with clients Bunmi, Venessa and Ellie in Santorini earlier in 2017! I loved our time together at our beautiful villa, talking business and branding, visibility, challenges and triumphs, dreams and desires! When we come together and open up, we're reminded that we're not alone on this journey, we're reminded of our greatness and inspire new ideas and direction for all - in personal life and in our work. It's so powerful to come together with other women entrepreneurs in this space.

We shot over a couple of days in amazing locations - spoilt for choice with settings around the island, our villa, it's mountainous landscapes, the ocean backdrops and the amazing town Oia which we went to at sunset! So beautiful... and the light!!! Honestly, heavenly. What a special time it was...

If you're bringing your clients on destination retreats around the world or hosting your own mastermind events in the UK, I'd be thrilled to join you there to hold a space for you to connect with your message, your mission, your great work in the world, and create empowered branding portraits with you. These high vibe spaces are amazing for photo shoots, and the resulting photographs are infused with this magnetic energy!

So here are some of my fave shots with Bunmi. Her company, The Sober Advantage works with people who are suffering from addiction and relapse. She helps them with their new routine, supporting them as much as they require with day to day life as they reintegrate to work, social life and family. The Sober Advantage helps people to ground their sobriety in real life situations which otherwise may lead them to compulsive and impulsive behaviours that do not serve them. This can come in the form of companionship, ongoing coaching support or facilitating interventions.

At the time of our shoot, Bunmi was working predominantly with crystal healing, and with her company Crystal and Rox creating yoga wear with special pockets and spaces to hold crystals! We focussed a lot of our shoot on working with these magical stones.

However as Bunmis entrepreneurial journey has evolved, one of the things that pleases me is that the images have still been perfect for her new venture. Even though it was not what we were shooting specifically for at the time it shows me that because our intention is to capture the spirit of a person, in their truth, feeling their best, the images continue to be in alignment with their work even as their business changes!

When we're running a business that is in line with our souls work, the person you're being called to show up as is your true self. You're showing up authentically... and even though we evolve over time and require new, refreshed images to capture and document our expansion to keep your branding on point - the TRUE core of who you are and your values are not going to radically change. I'm all about creating portraits that capture your essence and personality so that your images continue to be a great representation of you.

Check out Bunmis website for more information about her incredible work here.
