KARINA LYBURN | Personal Branding Photographer

So you want to enhance the visual aspect of your brand?  Fantastic!

I collaborate with entrepreneurs and performers to develop their personal brand; to get clarity on their mission and motivations. Working together, we’ll create striking images that reflect who you really are, and help you to connect with your ideal clients.

“Find out who you are and do it on purpose.” – Dolly Parton

Personal branding photography is SO much more than a new mug shot or LinkedIn picture; it's marketing YOU – it’s all about celebrating the very best of you and your business. 

It's a beautiful process that includes digging deep into who you are, why you do what you do, and where you’re going on your business journey.  It's an amazing opportunity to step into your power and then articulate your story through wonderful photographs that empower you and your brand with beauty and confidence.

Creating beautiful portraits is always a tremendous privilege. Especially when I’m entrusted with a client’s doubts about how they’ll come across through the lens:

“I won’t look good on camera...”
“I’ll be too nervous…”
“I won’t know what to do…”
“I’ll feel so embarrassed...”
“I’d be so awkward…”

If you’re looking at that list above and nodding, let me reassure you, it’s perfectly rational to have any of those fears! Guess what? I’ve been there too! Want even more good news? Just because you might start in a place of concern, doesn’t mean you’ll stay there; the process of a photo-shoot can be truly transformational. We’ll address any reservations you may have and then work through them together, and I’m pretty sure you’ll be laughing before you know it.

"The thought of being in front of a camera filled me with dread!  It’s something that I’d been putting off for a long time but I knew having the images would really help me to connect with my audience.  A personal branding day with Karina goes way beyond being in front of the camera on any given day.  From the Pinterest boards, to her questionnaires, to checking out possible venues, to the top tips for the day, to recommending a make-up artist – Karina has everything covered!  Alongside all of this, her energy is infectious!  She has a way of making you feel like, “I can do this,” and the resulting images were beyond what I was hoping for."

- Sarah

Putting yourself at the forefront of your business can be frightening (tell me ALL about it!), but it can also be the most empowering thing you can do. In a positive space, you’ll be able to flourish in front of the camera and invite others to be inspired by, and invest in, your story.

“No one is you and that is your power.” – anon.

Be you.

We’ll make your kick-ass photo-shoot happen in three easy steps:

1. Pre-shoot consultation
Let’s get to know each other! We’ll arrange a time to talk through your photo-shoot. I want to learn more about you and your business. This is so important, as it’s from this, that I’ll be able to take your story and devise a photo-shoot experience that’s right for you.
2. Your individual photo-shoot
It’s your time to shine in front of the camera! We’ll have fun, laugh A LOT, and create wonderful images to enhance the visual presence of your business.
3. Post-production
Your stunning images will be completed and delivered to you for you to share with your audience.

So what's included in your shoot?

I offer two personal branding photo-shoot packages to cater for the different needs of my clients. 

One Chapter:

  • 1 hour of photography at 1 location of your choice
  • Around 25 individually processed high resolution digital images
  • Your favourite 5 images complete with cosmetic retouching (eg. softening of lines, blemishes, under eye bags, stray hair etc.)


The Full Story:

  • 3 hour extended photo-shoot
  • Typically 3 locations (depending on travel) and multiple outfit changes to add stunning seasonal variety to your photographs
  • Around 75 individually processed high resolution digital images
  • Your favourite 15 images complete with cosmetic retouching (eg. softening of lines, blemishes, under eye bags, stray hair etc.)


All packages include an in-depth branding questionnaire and a planning call to design your bespoke photo-shoot.

Images will be delivered 2-3 weeks after your shoot.

Additional retouching is available on request.

I can also help arrange for you to have hair and make-up styling to help you feel at your most confident and sparkly on the day of your shoot, and give you hints and tips on what to wear.

I am based in the very heart of England, in Nottingham, but love to travel to work with my clients in the places that are meaningful to them.

(Please note that travel expenses outside of the Nottingham area are not included).

Let’s talk! If you’re curious to find out more about how we can work together, book your no obligation, pre-shoot consultation call, here. I’d love to hear from you!
