Personal Branding Shoot – Menovibrant

Personal Branding Shoot – Menovibrant

Personal Branding Photography

I had the great pleasure of photographing Nona’s Personal Branding for her new business venture MenoVibrant. MenoVibrant is a healthy lifestyle website aimed at helping women going through the menopause with tips on exercise and healthy eating. I for one cannot wait for Nona to launch her website as I am that woman!

As well as MenoVibarnt, Nona runs a non for profit running club near Peterborough, Sawtry Walk to Run. Her love for running came about when Nona started her weight loss journey 3 years ago. She put a shout out on a local Facebook forum looking for other likeminded women who wanted to start running. She was inundated with other women just like herself who wanted to tone up, start running for health reason. Over 30 women turned up! And thats how the running club was born.

Nona really is such an inspiration and I wanted to make sure her massive personality and love for life came through in her images. Nona needed a mix of images for her different hats she wears. We chose several locations to fit the brief as well as outfits that were on brand and show Nona’s bright and cheery personality.

To help Nona prepare for her Personal Branding session I sent her my free guide “Planning for your Personal Branding Shoot”. This free guide is sent to all my clients when they book a session with me. 14 pages full of tips on what props to bring, location ideas, what to wear and so much more.

At the time of writing this post, Nona’s website is still under construction but do keep checking back as I know it goes live very soon.

How to Prepare for your Personal Branding Photo Shoot

You have found your photographer, contracts signed and shoot day is upon you. Preparation is key for a successful shoot for both photographer and client. When you book a Personal Branding Photography session with me I will send out a detailed guide to prepare you for your shoot. In the meantime here is my check list to help you prepare for a Personal Brand Photography session.

  • First things first you need to find a photographer whose work you like and book them ( check out this blog post here )
  • Send your photographer a Pinterest board of the style of images and locations that you would like. Include posing ideas as well.
  • Select what you are going to wear. Keep it simple, wear what feels most comfortable and add some accessories that are your brand colours. This is the time to book makeup and hair appointments too. ( check out my blog post here ).
  • Choose locations where you are most comfortable and that represent your brand . Think about coffee shops, your office space, local neighbourhood for example. Good lighting is key, your photographer can advise on locations too. Send addresses of locations to your photographer in advance so they can check out best spots for your shoot.
  • Think about props you want to bring with you. Mobile phone, laptop, notebooks and pens are great everyday props. Bring the tools of your trade along too ( if possible!)
  • Ask your photographer when you can expect your photos to be ready and how they will be delivered.

Shoot day is here , pack your bag with your props and clothing. Water to keep you hydrated and maybe some snacks. Most of all don’t forget to enjoy yourself!

I hope this series on Personal Brand Photography has been useful for you when considering booking a photographer.
