Personal Branding Photography in Northamptonshire - Meera Majithia - Indian & Asian Wedding Planner
 

It was so much fun to shoot with beautiful Meera, earlier this summer!

Meera contacted me as there were changes happening in her Indian & Asian Wedding Planning business and she felt it was time to rebrand. She was ready to put her face to her business and connect with her audience in a more personal way!

Meera’s clients often reach out because they want to create an amazing wedding, but are time short and just don’t know where to start. Meera works with them to explore what’s important to them, their desires, the areas of their Wedding day they may not yet have considered, helps them to clarify their style and preferences, and takes care of the rest. She has regular meetings online or in person in the lead up to their day, and stays available for text/WhatsApp support.

It was clear that she absolutely loves the celebration of Weddings and being there for her clients, to help them feel reassured and looked-after from the very first contact she has with them, which allows them to relax, to fully enjoy and experience their day without having to worry about a thing.

This aspect of personal connection and going above-and-beyond is such an important way of working that Meera and her clients value, so in these images I really wanted to capture her warmth, friendliness and professionalism in way that felt super approachable to her potential clients online.

We shot at a gorgeous country house in Northamptonshire in which she has worked at and organised many weddings and events at over the years - so that made it extra special! We had such a great day and it was lovely that some of her friends joined us for help and support, and even to be in some of the shots!

I love what we captured and have been enjoying seeing how Meera is using the images on her Instagram. The new website is not due to launch for a few months, but in the meantime you can follow her and find out more about her work at @carriagesevents!

Personal Branding Photography in Brighton - Annabelle Nicoll - Garden Of Alchemy
 

What can I say about this shoot… such a special time! Capturing the spirit of Annabelle and her work was an honour for me, to bring the beauty and intimate nature of the ceremonies she holds to her online homes, and to witness the deep love and respect she has for her people and the plant kingdom — magical. And almost impossible to choose my favourites from our shoot because there were SO MANY I adore from our day!!! Below are some of the ones that I rather couldn’t leave out.

It was fascinating to learn about Annabelle’s life, and how amongst her many talents and interests was led to work with sacred plant medicines. As she notes on her website, “they allow us to live in harmony with each other and to survive and thrive while remaining sustainable, ethical and conscious.” If you are unfamiliar with plant medicines, head over to Annabelle’s website, Garden of Alchemy where you can find out more, and more about her story here.

When Annabelle first reached out, she shared with me that she was looking to increase her visibility with this work, connect with her audience, and make this work and the ceremonies more accessible. As well as being a Medicine Woman, she is also an incredible photographer (check out her work here!), so the visual element was very important to her, and I was especially thrilled to work with her on this.

We covered a lot on our shoot, from portraits in nature surrounding Brighton where we’re both based, to an actual Kambo ceremony, a trip to the beach near her home, some photos with her lovely partner, and an evening Cacao ceremony. It was truly beautiful to experience and document it.

Do take a look at her website at Garden of Alchemy to find out more about her work and message.

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.

You can check out her website here at Firechild Photography and Instagram here at @firechildphotography.

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).

See Suzans beautiful video testimonial here.

Personal branding photographer UK Becky Rui Hereford

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
