Personal Branding Headshot Shoot

Meet Rhiannon. She's a freelance writer and blogger based in Cardiff, South Wales. You can read her hilarious honest writing on her blog The Daily Boyle.

I've been doing quite a lot of headshot and personal branding shoots so far this year but I have to say this is one of my favourites. With such a variety of settings and amazing light, I was like a kid in a sweetshop.

What is personal branding?

If like me, you work for yourself and run your own business, then you ARE your brand. It's important to be able to portray yourself and your business to clients. It's vital for them to believe and trust in you - as a person and a brand.

A quick selfie might do the job in the short term but it's worth investing in some professional photography for the future. Personal branding shoots can include anything that helps to portray you and your business. Images can then be used across your website and social media platforms.

For Rhiannon's shoot - I wanted to show all the different sides of her. Yes, she's funny and friendly and down to earth but she's also a writer. Her writing covers all sorts of areas, some happy, sad, serious, funny and thoughtful. I wanted to capture all sides of her personality so that she can use the images for her blog as and when she needs them.

If you're interested in booking a personal branding shoot, then prices start at only £199. Bespoke packages can be created to suit your needs - each business is different and I'm happy to have a chat and create a package that suits each individual.

How to raise children with high self esteem!

Collaboration - raising children with high self esteem.

I've been following the hilarious writer Rhiannon from The Daily Boyle on Instagram for a while and really like her no nonsense, straight talking attitude to life. I got in touch with her to ask if she'd like to collaborate on a blog post together about raising kids with high self esteem. We're both mothers and both trying our best, like everyone else, to help our kids navigate through life as well rounded, confident people.

Meetings and research

After researching my post about how to boost your child's self esteem through displaying family photos around the house, it got me thinking. What else can we do to help raise confident kids that have a high self esteem? Rhiannon and I met for a coffee in Cowbridge and had a good old chat about it all. I wasn't a very confident child and never had very high self esteem. But I'm doing my very best to ensure that my kids do. We chatted about all the things that we're both doing, instinctively, as mothers and what else we could be doing. Rhiannon spent a long time researching the post and with her background as a teacher, she had even more knowledge to use.

The post

In the post, she covers a huge amount - including, love, attention, valuing emotions and praise. There's also information on structure, boundaries, behaviour and responsibilities. She discusses the impact of pride, health, confidence and challenges. And the importance of being a role model. Finally, she mentions outward factors - particularly the impact of social media on our kids.

It's a great read, so grab a cuppa and head on over to her blog for the full article.

Follow her on Instagram at The Daily Boyle.
