Hi, I'm Renee

A bit about me

I'm Renee and I am a portrait photographer and a personal brand coach. I am known as one of Brisbane's most colourful and joy-filled headshot photographers. I have worked with some of Australia's favourite business coaches and bloggers to help elevate and share their brands.

I am also an experienced trainer and facilitator, hold a Masters Degree in Human Resources and am a total nerd when it comes to all things personality testing. It is the blend of these two parts of me that has given me the foundation to help you discover your personal brand.

The passion that fuels me is the need to empower women. To help you develop an insight into your strengths and dreams, so you can own the power of who you are. I want to hold up a mirror, so you can see what’s inside. So you can see that you have what it takes to do the big work that you dream of.

A little bit more...

→ ENFP/J. I am energised by being with people, but don't put in me in a big crowd. I am all about genuine connection, so small talk makes me puke. However, I can talk to a stranger for hours about their beliefs and dreams. I am also a total geek about personality profile tools. 

→ I am a total colour addict. Seriously, I've had people comment that I may have trouble re-selling my home because it's a cacophony of colour. I think about emotions in terms of colours, dress according to how I want to feel, choose wine bottles by the colour of their labels and named my caravan Rainbow. See below. 

→ I have a 1968 fibreglass caravan named Rainbow. I am slowly renovating it, and in the meantime having loads of adventures with the kids. You can take a look over at @rainbowthevan

→ I have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Love watching UFC and enjoy a bit of NRL. BUT, video games with guns are banned in my house. 

→ I am a single Mumma to two kiddos who are amazing. Seriously. They are cuter than your kids. For sure.
→ I work a 'day job' in Human Resources. The job helps me balance my responsibilities and need to have a secure home. I am a big advocate of the side hustle.

→ I have a tattoo of the word 'enough' on my left wrist. Not because I'd had enough, but because I am enough. Yes. I had to have it permanently inked on me to remember.

→ In high school, I was voted 'girl most likely to now know what she wanted to do with her life'. Can't lie. Probably still stands. I know what I want to achieve - but how the heck I get there... that is still up for discussion. 

→ My favourite crystal is Rose Quartz. Favourite colour is a toss-up between blue and yellow. Though, both the kids are named after shades of blue, so I tell them 'blue'. 

→ I abhor any type of bigotry or intolerance. Racism, sexism and homophobia are up there as my big three. 

→ I believe that we all have a desire to make the world a better place. We might lose touch with this part of ourselves, but we are better people when we work for a cause bigger than ourselves. 

→ I am here for my sisters.

What I do

At its core, my work is about helping women to share their voice and message.

Personal brand consulting

I facilitate one-on-one mentoring packages and group coaching programs. These services use the Rainbow Brand Methodology. This is a guided discovery process, that I developed. It leads women through a step-by-step path to understanding their strengths, become confident in what they offer, and clear on the impact they dream to make. The Rainbow Brand process also leverages my brand archetype system which helps to translate the values and essence of who you are, into tangible and practical visual tools.

Photography

I provide a range of photo packages to support business and brands to share their message. Headshots, profile photos, full website and lifestyle imagery and product and stock photos. 

The significant difference between my work and other brand photographers is that all imagery is intentionally designed to enhance your message, based on the Brand Archetype tools.  

 

Why I do it

It's all about knowing who you are, and knowing that's enough. In fact, more than enough.

I believe that women are infinitely more powerful than we give ourselves credit for. Spiritually, intellectually, creatively. All of it. We hide behind the many roles that we play in our lives. We let our lack of confidence prevent us from doing what our very soul wants us to do. We lose touch with our own essence and we drift, feeling purposeless. 

So, I use the metaphor of a mirror. Because we are often scared of looking at them. But when we really stare into it, we see our strengths and our passions and we start to feel just how strong we are. We realise that we honestly have what it takes to make an impact.

 

I want you to walk away from our work together knowing yourself better. I want you to know in your very core that you are capable of doing work that matters to you, and you feel more empowered to go and do it. 

 

So... think we could be friends?
