Fleur & Miguel Love Shoot
 

It was such a joy to work with gorgeous couple Fleur and Miguel back in June! Two of the nicest people you could meet, I loved capturing some special moments with them at one of my favourite settings local to us in Buckinghamshire.

I went to college with Fleur, so it was great to reconnect and hear about whats happened in her world since that time, to meet lovely Miguel and hear about their love story so far!

The weather was a bit crazy on the day of our shoot, and after waiting a little while for some torrential rain to pass we headed into this beautiful location and the sun came out for us! Yay!

I'm thrilled with what we created together, hope you enjoy the images! Thanks Fleur and Miguel!

All images captured on 35mm Portra 400 processed by the UK Film Lab.

Natural Family Portraits in Buckinghamshire

It was so wonderful to spend some time with this lovely family back in early February to capture some fun and natural portraits!

The woodland session took place on a wintery morning in one of the families favourite locations in Buckinghamshire.

It's always so precious to capture the special connection between siblings... These twin boys are so sweet with each other, and so much fun!

I love allowing portrait sessions to be really personal to a family in this way... Setting up the shoot in one of their favourite places, having fun with each other as if I'm almost not there! and for these boys - totally embracing the puddles! It makes it so real and even more enjoyable.

When was the last time you updated your family portraits?

Photography in Branding - Sylvia Baldock Portraits

It was great to work with Sylvia back in May! Sylvia is an inspiring coach, trainer, speaker, workshop leader and now published author who works with entrepreneurs and businesses to unlock their hidden potential.

She's in the process of rebranding so it was fantastic to explore how she is moving forward and create some new portraits to reflect that and engage with the people she is looking to connect with as her business grows.

Because of the different ways she works with her clients, it was important to capture her in a variety of outfits and settings that would work well for different audiences and marketing materials, and keep things fresh and interesting!

We worked at a gorgeous country hotel that she often uses for meetings, and discussed the message she wanted to communicate with the photographs throughout the session, considering the settings around the hotel and the outfit choices as we went.

It is always so much fun getting excited with my clients, as we delve into what brings them joy through their work... Getting into the energy of success, empowerment and joy, bringing out and capturing the passion and excitement they have for what they do!

I've been thrilled to take part in her Personal Presence workshops this year, and Sylvias insight and expertise has been so powerful to me in my business, in understanding my values, gaining confidence in my personal brand and ultimately attracting more ideal clients.

It's so valuable to keep learning and investing in yourself as an entrepreneur, to grow and have a better understanding of yourself and the work you do, so that you can serve the world and your clients at your best. Sylvia is a great example of this.

She is also the regional director of the Athena Network in Bucks, which is how I came to know her over three years ago. It was wonderful to finally get her infront of the lens!

It was a really fun shoot, made even better with a glass of champagne!

I was so pleased to receive this testimonial from Sylvia after she had seen her images.

"Becky Rui is an exceptional photographer who sees beyond the lens into the heart of her subject.

She asks all the right questions to get to the real purpose of the photo shoot and then sets the scene to get the desired effect.

Becky is incredibly professional and her infectious enthusiasm makes the whole experience a delight from start to finish.

I am absolutely thrilled with the results and highly recommend Becky to capture the absolute essence of her subject"

I can't wait to see how she uses her new images!

How do the photos you're using in your branding right now make you feel?

Why Family Photographs are so Special

It was so great to celebrate my cousins 30th birthday at the weekend with lots of family. We were lucky to have so much sunshine that afternoon and sat in the garden together catching up and enjoying amazing food!

Of course, I was pleased to take a few photos to capture my cousins birthday, our afternoon,  and some special group photos. Like most people, my family don't love having photos taken, but I believe in what I'm capturing and know how important it will be to us all one day even if they don't appear to appreciate it right in that moment!!

Later on, when the rain started to come, we moved inside. As so often happens on these occasions - family albums came out, and everyone started pouring over beautiful old photographs as memories flooded back.

Photos of our past really bring us together. I mean, how much do we LOVE looking at old photos of our childhood holidays, the hilarious hairstyles and fashion trends that we thought were fantastic at the time! The group photos of family members who are no longer with us.

I'm sure we can all connect to that moment where you come across a few old photos and get sucked into the memories for literally hours!

I care that we realise that those moments are happening NOW too. This moment in time, right now, is also worth documenting.

Even if things feel so normal at the moment, it's exactly the reason why you'll love to look back on it. To remember life as it was, and things the way they used to be... The people who were there...
