Personal Branding & Lifestyle

Beautiful, on-brand!

Fancy that for your personal lifestyle shoot?
Colleen Leclercq
For example, here are some photos of Colleen Leclercq, who is an accomplished coach, consultant and the dynamic MD of Connect EQ. We did this shoot at her home, which provided a variety of settings to use for her personal branding photos and videos. You may be surprised to discover that your home incorporates lovely environments for you to be photographed and filmed in too.

Nicky Thomson
It was such fun taking these photos of gifted artist and art teacher Nicky Thomson in her gorgeous, light-filled studio. With her students in mind, she wanted to convey the vibrance and fun of art, which as you can see, she achieved beautifully! If applicable, it's a lovely idea to utilise the 'tools of your trade' as she demonstrates here by holding her paintbrush and working on a canvas.

Tracy Fenton
We had such a special time in our studio creating a beautiful, compelling portfolio for mindset coach Tracy Fenton, to populate her new website. Our objective was to showcase Tracy's captivating personality and give her prospective clients an immediate feel for her natural warmth and sincerity. Take a look at my Studio Portraits Gallery for plenty more personal branding photo shoot samples.

Mpho Tshukudu
These images from Mpho Tshukudu‘s portfolio feature her being her beautiful self at the Avianto venue in Muldersdrift, where we hosted her VIP Day. As a registered dietitian, speaker and co-author of Eat Ting, it serves her success to share radiant personal images that help to promote engagement with her clients and readers, while amplifying the ‘know, like and trust’ factor for her brand.
Lien Potgieter
Being an award-winning editor, as well as a highly experienced communications expert and creativity consultant, Lien Potgieter chose a wonderful venue, which is an artist's home, to capture the essence of her creative work, including humour in the form of the giant pencil that her husband made for her! She also utilised this beautiful palette of soft pinks and greens that align with her brand.

Multi-platinum singer/songwriter Nianell is also an international Hay House author, speaker, coach and healer, so her portfolio needed to reflect all these captivating aspects of her gifted work. In addition, we spent a magical day together, capturing Nianell at her home with her beautiful triplet daughters! This offers her fans a glimpse behind the scenes to connect with her more deeply.

Terri-Lee Moorhouse
It was a treat to photograph talented Terri-Lee Moorhouse too, at the Cabanga Conference Centre. We used high quality fabric sample books and paint swatches to illustrate what she does as an interior decorator with her own business. Our objective was to convey her gorgeous style and tone, as well as the feeling that her prospective clients will have when meeting with her.

Below are some photos from my shoot for special friends Juanene Frydman and Naëtt Atkinson. Both accomplished women with their own businesses, Juanene is an author, executive coach, speaker and conversationalist, while Naëtt specializes in facilitation and mediation. Like the ladies above, they chose to enhance their brands with natural, personal lifestyle images, and they had so much fun doing the shoot together.
