Charlotte Colliver - Personal Brand Shoot, Surrey - Holistic Wellbeing & DoTerra
 

It was such a pleasure to work with lovely Charlotte and capture a day-in-the-life shoot for her beautiful business last year! Charlotte was keen to raise her visibility and share the message at the core of her work and life in a bigger way, so we worked together to get clear on the kinds of photographs that would help to tell her story, illustrate her tips, and represent her authentically. It was so fun creating this fab variety for her new website and social media, and I’m sharing a few favourites below!

Just from talking with Charlotte you can FEEL her enthusiasm and passion for wellness and self care at the core of her work. It’s so inspiring and uplifting!

Part of her mission is about changing the way we heal ourselves and our families - moving away from only looking outward, and rather regaining the confidence to trust our bodies and intuition, working with high quality essential oils and developing our own natural medicine kits and supportive lifestyles.

Charlotte works with her clients to support their healthiest and happiest lives, through natural medicine, essential oils, pilates, movement, nutrition and coaching. I love how she works in such a holistic way, bringing in the perfect tools to support her clients.

It was amazing to hear how much of a difference these tools and practices have made to her own life, and so interesting to hear her personal stories - she is an incredible person who pushes her own boundaries to know herself, and expand in her knowledge and experience. You can check out her Instagram at @charlotte_colliver, and below are some of my favourite photos from our fab day!

Éadaoin Curtin - Personal Branding Shoot - Dublin, Ireland
 

Oh my gosh, I had THE BEST time shooting with the amazing Éadaoin last summer. Éadaoin is a kindred spirit and was so much fun to spend time with… it was such a pleasure to capture her in and around Dublin, Ireland where she’s based, in her many creative zones and favourite places.

I love getting to capture ‘a day in the life’ of my clients, creating both planned portraits, story-telling images, and unexpected moments, as we flow through the day, and this was one of those shoots. That creative freedom is one of the things I most love about this work… having a strong vision for our session, maintaining clear intentions for the outcome of the images whilst at the same time staying open to creativity and the serendipities!

As a fellow personal brand photographer and artist, Éadaoin was preparing to increase her visibility and share her message in a bigger way.

She was looking to come away from our day with a library of personalised images that she could update her website with, use in Instagram posts, email marketing and more. It was important for her also to experience what it was like to be on the other side of the camera, and go through the journey her own clients go through.

It was so awesome chatting with her and planning the shoot in the lead up to our day, and it was beautiful how aligned we are in our values and approach to our work in branding - we had such a good understanding. She is passionate about women empowerment, visibility and voices, and her fascinating journey has led her to be so beautifully positioned to do this work. You can find out more about her interesting journey on her About page here.

It’s so important to walk your talk, to invest in yourself and also to try being on the ‘receiving end’ of the service you offer to from time to time, because…

  • firstly (obvs!) it provides you with the benefits of whatever that service is.

  • it gives you a truer, deeper understanding of where your clients are at when they come to you, and the challenges they may be facing when they work with you.

  • it provides you with the tools of real experience to support your clients more fully, as you come from a broader perspective.

This is what Eadaoin bravely did for herself, and I think it’s an important journey to take, and example to set.

If you’re investing in yourself, doing the work, and showing that you believe in the service you offer, you inspire others to believe in themselves too, and to understand the value of your offerings.

On our day we documented different aspects of her life, showing her as if on a photo-shoot, getting creative at home, being in nature, and spending time with her lovely partner in the STUNNING Dun Laoghaire.

I traveled over one week in August last year to create these with her and it was an absolute dream visit... loved exploring the area and having some adventures on my own while in Ireland too! Thank you for having me come over to photograph you dear Éadaoin.

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.
