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.

Catie Harris in Philadelphia - Personal Branding Shoot

It was such a pleasure to join beautiful Catie in Philadelphia for her personal branding shoot this summer. It's a dream to get to meet my clients wherever they are in the world, and experience new places for myself too!

Catie set up her business The NP Life after knowing that she had so much to share with the world and with others in her industry. With the tools she has developed throughout her career so far and experiences as an accomplished nurse practitioner and more, she helps other NP's recognise their own skills and expertise and create a business around what they are most passionate about. She helps her clients to put strong foundations in place and mentors them on their entrepreneurial journey.

We wanted to create photos together that radiated trust and connection, show the lifestyle she has created, show her as a mama, and incorporate lots of her favourite local spots!

It was so much fun to explore Philly with dear Catie and capture these photographs together!

Beatriz Valverde Garzon - Personal Branding Shoot London

Beatriz and I had the best time creating photographs for her new website and social media in London!  We wanted to show her at the hotels and spaces she works with her clients as an executive coach, alongside enjoying her favorite personal hangouts.

Her love of culture, the arts, education, nature AND the London vibe were all important pieces to capture!

As I look at these portraits of Beatriz I can really feel the kindness, warmth and joy of her beautiful spirit, and at the same time her determined and focused energy as a strong entrepreneur!  Truly a wonderful shoot to co-create and a inspiring soul to photograph.

I LOVE getting to know my clients... Why they do what they do, what lights them up, and how their work in the world makes a difference. I love those conversations before our day together and during the shoot - connecting with their message with clarity and excitement and capturing that together!

Let's set up a time to speak and explore YOU and your work in the world, and how we can grab all that sparkling uniqueness and beauty and put it into pictures to help YOUR brand to stand out.  Email me now at becky@beckyrui.com!

Personal Branding Photography in Paris - Kendall Ritz

It was amazing to travel to Paris again this summer to work with beautiful Kendall Ritz!

Kendall travelled to Paris from her home in Pennsylvania for a fabulous business event and for our shoot! We had such a wonderful time creating new photographs for her business as we explored the city together, with her husband Barry.

Kendall works with women who are dealing with challenges around fertility. With her background as a physician, she incorporates a holistic approach to her work, and uses coaching as a tool to help her clients with the inner work alongside the medical piece.

Just being in her presence is so lovely. She has the most beautiful, nurturing, and warm energy, and I know the work she's here to do is absolutely transforming the lives of the women and couples she works with.

It was an honour to create these photographs with Kendall and Barry in Paris back in July!

Read on to hear how Kendall found her experience on the other side of the camera!

I received this beautiful testimonial from Kendall after she had recieved her images. Thank you Kendall!

"Working with Becky Rui for my very first professional photo-shoot was an all-over amazing experience.  Becky has such a warm and kind personality, I immediately felt at ease with her.

The information she sent me leading up to the shoot was extremely helpful in preparing, and I felt completely taken care of by her in picking the locations for the shoot (in Paris!!!) as well as her help in arranging an amazing hair and makeup artist for the day of the shoot.  I never could have done all of this without Becky's expertise and connections - she made it so easy for me to make some simple choices and the rest of it was basically all taken care of!

During the shoot itself, Becky was so supportive and made me feel totally at ease.  I felt like a celebrity - it was so much fun!

The images I received from the shoot were amazing, and I'm so excited to use them in basically giving my business and marketing a total makeover.

Words cannot express how grateful I am to Becky for this gift of such a wonderful experience, with such fantastic results that will be of huge value to marketing my business for a long time to come. THANK YOU Becky!!!
