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.

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!

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.

Check out Bunmis website for more information about her incredible work here.

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!!

Kim Morrison - Personal Branding Photo Shoot in Paris

It was a dream to join beautiful Kim in Paris for this lifestyle branding session last Summer! Normally based in Australia, she was travelling to the South of France to co-host a retreat, stopping by for a few days in the city of Love before it began!

The owner of aromatherapy company Twenty8, author and speaker, Kim's passion is to help women feel great about themselves, and her radiant energy shone throughout our special time together. I loved learning about her amazing journey and business during our day, which you can find out more about here.

I always love the opportunity to travel for shoots - it's so inspiring to be somewhere different, and Paris is absolutely one of my favourite cities! If you're interested in having your next shoot in Paris, send me an email at becky@beckyrui.com!
