Do any of these resonate with you?

Unseen

Feeling unseen can develop from business stats like:

  • Lower than expected enquiries.
  • Reduced Website Traffic.
  • A downturn or lower-than-expected social media engagement.

Defeated

Whilst short-term feelings of defeat are common in entrepreneurship, a more prolonged sense of defeat can manifest from:

  • Noticing previous clients now working with a competitor.
  • Seeing potential customers receiving a less-than version of what you can do brilliantly.
  • Hitting the same hurdles about your visibility over and over again.

Misunderstood

Perhaps you feel misunderstood and:

  • You expected to be much further ahead by this point in your journey.
  • Your achievements are diminished because you haven’t been able to help the people you want to work with most.
  • You deserve more recognition.

Inside the Checklist

Perfect for any busy leader or expert who wants to cut the small talk and jargon to see exactly where their Personal Brand is (or isn’t).

“The clarity I gained from this process was invaluable and oh-so rapid. I can finally see what I need to prioritise in my limited schedule to build my authority.”

Jackie WilsonCopywriter & Content Strategist

    When you scratch the shiny superficial surface away, you cannot question that this way of thinking is just part of yet another anti-feminist micro-aggression designed to make more amazing women invisible. Did you know that?

    1. Julia Child published her first cook book aged 50.
    2. Diana Nyad was the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage at age 64. It was her 5th attempt.
    3. Vera Wang began her fashion career aged 40. Prior to this she was a figure skater and journalist.
    4. Back in 2011, Cher became the only artist in history to have a number one song on a chart for SIX consecutive decades.

    So really, it’s no longer a give-up-the-ghost factor. It’s your time to claim your power with some practical action on your Personal Branding. This is where I can help you.

    Now is the time

    It’s so easy to become paralysed in hesitation when you know you should be doing all the things to build a personal brand that claims your rightful share of the spotlight. But when it’s a daily battle against the expectations, the race against your life clock on an already overloaded schedule it’s no wonder giving yourself the space you need to work on your brand remains on your metaphorical back burner for years at a time.

    How I fix Personal Brands

    We're just getting Started!

    I too battle with the healthy balance needed when it comes to self-expectations. We are bombarded with ideals, the highlight reel from the best parts of people’s lives, the endless 30 under 30 squillionaire lists. It’s all too easy to let ourselves engage in comparisonitis and conclude that you’re just a washed-up old hag that didn’t amount to much – just like so and so said that time.

    Did you know?

    What to Expect from a Transformed Personal Brand

    When it comes to creating your own Personal Brand, it can quickly become a single project that expands at a rapid disorganised pace of “do all the things” or “buy all these promotional bits n bobs”. You may have tried to navigate some of that on your own already. My experience and skills will give you instant clarity about why what you have worked on so far is not showing you real measurable results like:

    Press & Publicity Opportunities

    Attracting better talent as you grow

    Memorability & Recognition

    Satisfaction at the end of the day

    Meaningful and Positive impact

    In my years working with Female Leaders and Experts who are ready to embrace the results a well-thought-out and executed Personal Brand has, I’ve devised my working framework. It’s this framework that we work with to find precisely where to focus on for you first.

    It’s always Bespoke

    No two women are the same which pretty much means that no two Personal Brands are the same either. This framework is flexible and works in a bespoke way depending on exactly what will give you the best results the quickest. This is why every single style of working together begins with a 1-to-1 Zoom call or an email conversation.

    There is no set one-size-fits situation over here with me. I refuse to subscribe to any empirical dress sizes (another anti-feminist bee in my bonnet). So why should I try to squeeze you, your uniqueness, skills and dreams into a pre-prescribed step-by-step?

    Depending on what we uncover in our initial no-obligation chat I will be able to recommend to you how I think we can get the progress you are looking for when it comes to improving your personal brand, and I can usually offer some different ways of doing that based on what you share with me too.

    A Fantastic Creative Partner

    We needed two types of Content Photography to update our marketing and website. Laura was brilliant at adapting her photographic and creative talents. We shot the entire product line at her studio and then worked together on a luxe fashion shoot. Laura was able to ask me the exact right questions to ensure the work she did support how I wanted our brand to be perceived. With a niche audience, my specifications were meticulous.  She delivered on this and is a fantastic creative partner.

    Visual Marketing Excellence

    Visual Marketing Excellence… and I should know. Working in the realm of visual marketing has given me a discerning attitude about how the best brands stand out for the right reasons. Laura knows these subtleties too. She shows up with personal style and brings enthusiasm, originality and a whole heap of talent.  Being out on our Personal Branding photoshoot in downtown San Diego felt like a stroll with a buddy. When I booked her to shoot me deliver a talk at a conference it was like she wasn’t in the room. This approach speaks volumes about how skilled she is. The results are masterful. Do not hesitate to work with her.

    Order AND Action. An incredible talent! Laura YOU are magical!!!!

    It took me seconds to feel on a deep level that Laura is a Goddess of order and action. That’s pretty rare for a Creative Talent as big and beautiful as hers. Shooting with Laura in the gorgeous La Jolla San Diego was a truly magical couple of hours. She brought out the best of me and I LOVE the photography. It’s so much more than just a photo shoot when you work with Laura. She has laser-insight, knows SO MUCH about how to articulate a brand and what’s more, she can break all of those big ideas into order and action that feels manageable.

    I have had great feedback

    I booked a professional headshots photoshoot with Laura to coincide with a conference I was speaking at, as I’d seen some of the work she’d done for colleagues in my industry and it was great!
    Despite having a very busy schedule on the day, Laura didn’t try to rush my session and found several locations to give a variety of different, interesting backdrops.
    She put me at ease and I think that showed in the results! I have had great feedback on the photos I chose from the session, which I continue to use to this day.

    Worth every penny

    Working in marketing and public relations has a lot to do with image and reputation. It was crucial to me that my clients and future customers could see that I walked the talk and could be trusted. I had a bunch of scattered ideas when I decided to begin working with Laura on a Personal Brand Photoshoot project. She brought the best of these ideas together and over-delivered on planning, directing her creative crew, creating a social media buzz about the shoot, and creating subsequent content that showcased my business AND a collection of magnificent photos I love. If you’re looking to work with the real deal, you need to hire Laura. Trust me.

    My retreat was levelled up enormously

    I have a lovely community of Fitness and Wellness Pros from all over the UK and beyond. One of the highlights of the year is to host a luxe in-person retreat. After seeing the incredible photography work Laura did in San Diego I asked her to join us in a 6-Star Resort in Marbella, Spain. She did not disappoint. She was available to my delegates for mini branding photoshoot sessions, she was on the speaking lineup talking about implementing visibility into a fitness and wellness brand, and, we even had time to shoot a FABULOUS Personal Brand session for me. I love my photography, and my community have fallen in love with her too, I highly recommend her especially for online community-based businesses that host a retreat.

    Fast AND Fantastic!

    After meeting Laura at another photoshoot, I knew she would be the photographer to get an updated professional headshot just right for me. She worked around my busy schedule and I really liked the final work. Great job, highly recommend this service.

    One of my best Creative Suppliers EVER

    Laura is one of my best Creative suppliers EVER. Creating the magazine, and coaching has meant I have come into contact with hundreds of different creatives over the years from all over the world. Laura is one of THE best. She has a wonderful way with words and creates a hugely popular column for the magazine on branding and photography. We engaged her to shoot for the cover and also to shoot and direct a creative content crew when we covered a prestigious awards event. This is just the beginning, we will be hiring her a lot more in the future. Book her now, she’s worth the wait.

    Now I can release my EP!

    I heard about Laura through a couple of contacts, she came highly recommended. I had a really specific vision for how I wanted this shoot to come out. It had to represent my music and me as an artist. Laura was so respectful of that and she offered up several ways to shoot what was in my head. If you’re looking for a skilled creative collaborator, Laura is your gal.

    She delivered on my vision

    Laura and I first worked together back in the days when she had her studio in 2013. This shoot was an ultra-fun vintage pinup-style shoot, we connected that day and kept in touch. When it was time for me to launch my website and get ready for my book to be published in 2018 I had no hesitation in booking her to help me bring the vision in my mind of how I wanted everything to look and feel to life. Laura delivered on my vision, she can do the same for you and your Personal Branding too.

    Swift Service and Fuss-Free

    I needed a quick update on my professional headshots and after meeting Laura at a networking session decided to book her. The shoot was fantastically fast which worked within my busy schedule and I’m pleased with the final results. Swift service and fuss-free. Would recommend.

    Happy to recommend

    Me and the team at Michael Offord Optometrists are more than happy to recommend Laura. She was recommended to us back when we were celebrating our 35th anniversary of trading in 2016 and needed some professional photography. When it was time for us to get some fresh Team Photography in 2022 we knew straight away we wanted to work again with Laura. She always does a great job and is a delight to work with.

    So much more fun than I expected

    Being able to build trust is hugely important in my line of work. People need to feel comfortable about letting me in their home or place of business. Laura has managed to get this into the creative professional headshots she did for me. I’m thrilled. It’s already making a difference in enquiries.

    Exactly what we needed

    Making my yoga studio a beautiful zen space in the middle of the city centre has been a labour of love. Laura came in and captured this mood so that we could show new members what it’s like to join or even just try out any of the classes we have to offer. Laura has helped us so much with creating more social media posts and updating the website. The content shoot service is a great option for any small business owner like me.

    I wanted some relaxed and Professional Headshots. Laura brings such a creative take on how to explain what you do for a living in the photography she creates. I would never have come up with this idea on my own.

    I love my cover shot!

    I am someone who absolutely hates getting my photo taken. The idea of a photo shoot filled me with so much dread. However, within 5 minutes, Laura had me completely relaxed and laughing – and even enjoying it! I am so pleased with how my cover shoot turned out. Laura has such a lovely way with you when she is shooting and can put even the most awkward at ease. I love the final results and am so proud of how it all came out in print too.

    My previous headshots felt a bit stiff

    Coaching and mentoring staff as well as project managing several moving pieces at once makes me the central point of contact in my work. A huge part of this is being seen as calm and relatable. My previous headshots felt a bit stiff and I wanted to get this message across a bit better. I’m so happy with how this set of images came out. Definitely recommend.

    Laura is now a part of the Fliprunway family

    I saw Laura doing her thing at a conference and knew she would be a great addition to my Fliprunway community and events. We have loved working with Laura to help us with workshop retreat photography, speaking and shooting a conference. She’s photographed an awards event and has been a compare and judge at a virtual awards event! We consider Laura to be a part of the Fliprunway family and will continue to work with her in the future. Such a talent!

    I forgot she was there!

    Getting visual proof of you as a dynamic speaker is a fantastic way to build authority. When Laura was offering this service at one of the conferences I was on the lineup for it felt like a no-brainer to take advantage of this. When I was up there speaking and moving around the room, I completely forgot she was there in the shadows working away. I still get great comments about these shots. I highly recommend this bespoke photography service to any fellow professional speakers out there.

    Now I’m really ready to go for it

    Setting up a business takes a LOT of guts, determination and focus. When I learned that Laura had a photography service to help me get a decent number of visual assets to pass to my website designer to sort out for me I was delighted. What’s more, she came to my home bakery and was exceptional at working around and with my kids too. Now I’m ready to get those online orders in.

    She made me feel like Beyonce

    When I had booked to go to Social Media Marketing World I knew it was important to document it. Having worked with Laura before when I was a speaker at an event, I was thrilled I had the option to book her. She planned every inch of the shoot and the whole experience made me feel like Beyonce herself. I now have a collection of inspirational imagery that works perfectly to articulate that modern businesses can trust me to manage their content.

    I got the job

    Changing industries in your career is tough. I re-trained and got the qualifications but really needed that little bit extra to get invited to interviews. I decided to try adding a relevant headshot to my job applications. Laura took this brief and really ran with it, so much so that this professional headshot was actually a talking point at the interview and then I got the job! Well worth the investment, I shall continue to recommend her to anyone looking to change up their career.

    This proves how disruptive we really are

    One of the most important drivers for this recruitment agency is to disrupt the market we are in. We wanted to underline this by using team photography that feels non-stuffy or overly corporate. Laura is so skilled at getting anyone to relax in front of the camera. We will continue to hire her to capture our growing team.

    I thought I was going to be nervous

    I’d like to thank Laura for the great photoshoot experience she delivered for me. It was relaxed and productive. I was always going to hire her to do my headshots, her professionalism and creativity are second to none. I thought I was going to be nervous on our shoot day but Laura has a great way of making you feel relaxed and at ease, which I think has translated very well into the final results. I have no hesitation in recommending her.
