Brand photo-shoot in Oxfordshire - online business manager - Rachael Gunn

Meet Rachael - online business manager extraordinaire, and founder and CEO of ‘Rachael Gunn Virtual Solutions’.  Rachael is so passionate about working with entrepreneurs, start-ups and small business owners to banish the chaos, and manage, organise and automate the backend of their business so they can focus on executing the higher-level vision required to scale successfully and sustainably.

“After years of working in corporate management, I broke free to create my dream job; organising, systemising and simplifying to my heart’s content (my own happy place), while working with some amazing small business owners that are passionate about what they do. There is no better motivation than helping someone step away from the chaos, switch gears and build the business they’ve always dreamed of!”

We spent a stunning June day together, taking beautiful new photographs to grow Rachael’s brand and equip her with beautiful bespoke images of herself, her gorgeous dog (of course!), and her barnstorming business that she could then use for her website, social platforms and all her promotional needs. Rachael came to me with a clear aesthetic - neutral tones; crisp cottons, earthy woods, confident, reliable, approachable, feminine, collaborative, freedom… During the planning process we worked together to get clear on the stories Rachael wanted to tell, and how best to communicate these key themes through images. Rachael committed 150% from the word go, it was such a pleasure to step into her world for a while and to capture her infectious energy on camera. 

Here’s what Rachael had to say about her shoot, “Karina did my business brand photo-shoot and I am SO happy with the results! It was my first one and she was super helpful, providing me with lots of information ahead of time so I could prepare properly. She guided me through choosing a location, was super patient with answering my endless questions, and was more than happy to let me bring my dog to my shoot and was even very accommodating when I ended up choosing a location a lot farther than we had anticipated. On the day, she was fab at making me feel relaxed and I had such a great time! She made what had seemed like quite a daunting experience a really enjoyable one and the photos she took were nothing short of amazing, she managed to take all of my ideas and blend them with my brand seamlessly.”

It’s been a joy collaborating with you, Rachael, and creating beautiful photographs for you. Thank you for inviting me to join you on your journey, I’m so excited to see where it takes you next. x
