Personal Branding Photography in West Sussex - Jill Wootton

It was wonderful to work with inspiring entrepreneur Jill Wootton and lovely member of her team Karen earlier in the year. I travelled down to a beautiful location which is close to their hearts in West Sussex for our time together.

We created portraits and lifestyle images that conveyed that perfect blend of professionalism, luxury, playfulness and fun, which is at the core of Jills personal brand.

I feel so privileged to get to work with people like Jill who have such beautiful faith in people, believes whole heartedly that we are each here to be joyful, and brings this passion and energy into everything she does.

How to Use Your New Photos to Make an Impact!

It is always exciting for me to see how my clients choose to use their personal branding photography after our time together.

We take time before the day of your session to really explore your business, your ideal clients, how you're moving forward, how you're marketing yourself etc, so that we can plan a shoot and a set of images that lets your spirit shine, and perfectly matches our vision.

After the day of the shoot I can't wait to see how the new images are used!

I photographed wonderful Rosie Paterson of Living Rosy back in September, who works with women in the corporate world to realign with a healthy lifestyle.

We had a lot of fun shooting around Mayfair and Hyde Park, I'm looking forward to sharing more about this shoot soon!

I was thrilled to see her re-vamped website and feel the impact of the photos we created together online. I love the big, bold, colourful header on her site, and how she's incorporated her photos into different areas of the site, to connect with her viewers and give a very personal feel.

The truth is that when you provide a service thats personal, people want to see who you are and what you're like, not be wondering about the person hiding behind a logo.

By being visible, you get to share your beautiful work with the world and help the people you are here to serve to find you.

Using gorgeous, authentic images that stand out will really help your ideal clients to connect with you.

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!!!

Patrick & Elliot Love Shoot

It was such an honour to work with amazing couple Patrick and Elliot back in the summer.  Such fun and lovely guys, we shot around locations local to their home in East London.

It's always important to me to get to know my clients before our shoot, and a privelage to hear all about their love story.

Spending that time together first also really helps my clients to get into an open place, feel comfortable with me and the camera, so that the portraits we create together are natural, unfiltered and real.  Aah, what a joy!!

I'd love to share Patricks thoughts on the shoot after our time together - his words are so touching and his message is pefect:

It's ironic that as a model agent who encourages others to jump in front of the camera and look great, I have never been comfortable doing the same. I rarely even take selfies and stand at the back when it comes to group pictures.

My boyfriend on the other hand loves a picture. So it was a bit of a tough decision when We decided to be shot by Becky. We had only ever met once and now We were to display our personal relationship story and emotions for her to capture. 

I was nervous that morning, and more so because I wanted to do my best and ensure the images were great. Becky was really warm and friendly on arrival and straight away wiped away my worries because we spent the first part of the shoot chatting about various things.

Her skill of getting my boyfriend and I to talk about how we first met and rediscover why we have been together for 13 years was so great. We got caught up in the love and adventure and most of all the comfort of working with someone who cared about us just as much as we cared for each other.

The toughest challenge was subtle public display of affection when shooting outside as people walked by, as a gay couple this will always be a scary thing but Becky kept it natural and was always full of encouragement. 

In the end we were so relaxed we didn't want the shoot to end. It was such a cool experience and we would recommend it to anyone.

Thanks Becky 

If you know that you'd love to have some photographs like this with your partner, but feel unsure about the experience, know that what we'll create together is a safe space for you to relax and be yourself, and it's always so much fun! You'll come away with special photographs to cherish for a lifetime.

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?
