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.

Ellie Burscough - Personal Branding Shoot in Greece

In January I flew out to Santorini to photograph three incredible women - this is the awesome Ellie Burscough. Ellie is based in Australia and was taking out a few months to travel Europe with her family, running her business as she went and soaking up the beauty and culture of so many amazing destinations! THE DREAM!

It was fascinating to learn about Ellies life and journey through her business, as a personal trainer, mama and competitive powerlifter(!). She coaches her clients around their mindset and strategy to share real value with the world and generate an incredible income. She helps her clients to leverage their unique gifts and offer, and helps them build what they do around their lifestyle and personal goals as she does. I really enjoyed seeing the way she kept in touch with her peeps during our days together, she's an example of a woman in business truly walking her talk - such a pleasure to capture!

On this shoot we wanted to show a mixture of things - being able to work from anywhere as she does, showcase this beautiful Greek island, and enjoying time away from her work. She wanted to use the photos on her website, in social media, emails and promotions across different platforms which you can see on her Facebook page here and website here. I love seeing what she’s sharing about and find her message and content super empowering - go look!!

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!

Grace Kelly - Personal Branding Photography in Italy

Last Summer I flew over to beautiful Ostuni in the Puglia region of Italy to shoot with inspiring life and business coach Grace Kelly! It was such a fun couple of days exploring and creating together with a fantastic team.

Leading up to the shoot we explored her personal brand, some of her business plans for the upcoming months, how she'd like to be using her images, the topics that she would be sharing with her community and more, as we built the story for her shoot.

We were wanting to create a series of up to date portraits and lifestyle images that would authentically illustrate her stylish lifestyle, show where she’s working from and what she loves to do! It was lovely to photograph her with her wonderful partner Francesco as well.

We had such a joy filled couple of days working together and it's been exciting to see how Grace has used the photographs in her email marketing since. You can check out her website here

Grace has an intimate retreat coming up NEXT MONTH in Los Angeles - sign up to her mailing list here to stay up to date with the info on the Stylish Business Retreat Los Angeles or email her directly asap if you're keen to secure your space!
