London Personal Branding Session
Welcome back to the blog! In today’s post I’m going to be showcasing a recent London personal branding session with the lovely Emma from Beau Tie.
Emma applied for my International Women’s Day giveaway earlier on in the year. She was one of the lucky ones who received a personal branding session for free from me.
Beau Tie is a luxury men’s accessories brand that consists of handmade bow ties, pocket squares and ties (plus a dog range!). Wherever she can, Emma uses lots of vintage and reclaimed fabrics. This is so her products are exclusive and original. By doing this, she’s also helping the world be a greener place.
Despite Emma being in business for over 6 years, she was yet to have any professional imagery taken of herself and her products. She told me that she’s been lucky to get lots of customer imagery from weddings but that she would love some shots of herself to enhance her online presence further.
And that’s where I came in! After reading her Typeform response and having a look at her website, I knew I wanted to work with Emma. I wanted to help her create some beautiful imagery that really shows the person behind her brand. It is only her in her business, she hand makes everything. I thought to myself, if I can help this lovely lady with one thing, I’m going to create some authentic portraits for her to use on her social and her website. Images that truly represent her as a person.
So without further ado, let’s jump into Emma’s Notting Hill personal branding session.
Emma and I started her session on Denbigh Road followed by Denbigh Terrace where all the colourful houses are in Notting Hill. Her outfit worked really well against the houses we found. Navy, white and a subtle hint of green were the featuring colours in these shots.
When I knew I’d got the shot, I whipped out my pop-up tent and Emma changed into a pink suit. I really loved this look. The colours are quite soft and feminine but still strong and vibrant.
After we’d explored a bit more of Notting Hill, Emma and I headed back to Notting Hill Gate station. We ventured to find a coffee shop that had an outside table to get some product shots.
Once we’d finished doing the product shots, Emma went inside the cafe to change into her third and final outfit – the red dress.
Then shortly after these shots, we headed to Kensington Gardens to find some beautiful floral backdrops.
And that concludes our shoot!
I had such an amazing time shooting with Emma, producing images for her personal brand. Once I sent her the images – this was her response:
I also asked her to write me a little review in which she said:
“Where do I start? Beth was a dream to work with! I absolutely hate having my photo taken, but she completely put me at ease and as a result I LOVE the photos she took. She captured me laughing which was really important to me and I’m actually so excited to share them all. It’s been a complete game changer for me and I cannot thank her enough. My face is going to be happily all over my Instagram now!”
