THE STORY PORTRAIT

KNOW YOUR STORY AND LEAD FROM THAT PLACE

Your story is the most profound resource you have as a leader. The Story Portrait is a hybrid of coaching, self inquiry, story and photograph. One that will get you clear on your motivations to lead and put you on the map in a big, bold, beautiful way.

YOU'VE GOT TO GET VISIBLE IF YOU WANT TO BE FOUND

As a Creative Entrepreneur with a vision, you need to get seen, you are the face of your business. Personal visibility is necessary in order to attract in those dream clients and brilliant opportunities.

The problem is you don’t have great photography or content to share, and so you remain hidden on Social Media and thus, don’t have the impact or traction you require to make your venture a success.

You may cringe as you share another post on Insta or Facebook with the same old headshots you had taken a few years back, you know that in truth, you’re not that person anymore.

There are opportunities for collaboration, publicity, podcast invitations all waiting for you and passing you by because you just aren’t comfortable sharing your brand collateral.

You know that if you had, professional, lifestyle and portrait photographs that supported your brand and the clarity around your own Origin Story, you’d go for it full-force!

TELL YOUR STORY OR SOMEONE ELSE WILL

It’s possible that you bit the bullet and had some headshots done by a local photographer, but they just didn’t capture your essence or your energy, and that’s important.

The photographer didn’t spend any time getting to know you, not really so you couldn’t relax and it shows. You resent paying this money on a series of images you just know you won’t use. It may well feel vulnerable to share your perspective, your thoughts and opinions  publicly, but you know you have to, this is what will rally your tribe and call in your clients.

If only you had clarity around your motivation to lead this venture. You sense that your story is rich and motivational, but what parts to share and what to leave out?

It’s possible you signed up for personal brand or marketing courses but found them to be formulaic and impersonal, not deep enough. There was no personal support to help you recognise the unique aspirational choice points in your own life.

So you go on sharing content that feels non-specific, but you really need to take a stand now, to plant your flag and get visible – that’s if you really want to move mountains.

This journey gave me so much confidence that continued to grow and unfold over time, incredible!

Jess Ratcliffe, Founder.

I’ve been a Lifestyle Portrait Photographer and Certified Coach for over 13 years, and I combined these skills to create a unique hybrid offering – The Story Portrait. A personal journey that reveals your Origin Story and captures just how incredible you truly are.

Through the experience we’ll dive deep into what has shaped you, everybody has lived a ‘Hero’s Journey’, and everybody’s direction is informed by that. My work will help you recognise it and own it, through deep awareness – this is when your confidence soars.

And what makes The Story Portrait photographs so powerful and so natural is the journey we take together.

Safety, trust, intimacy and connection are words used by clients when they describe their experience.

You’ll grow from this and the end result will reflect your confidence. You’ll feel proud to talk about your life, your choice points, your mission and you’ll feel driven to share it with the world.
