Photographing Author and Business Coach Alissa Daire Nelson - Shoreview, MN
Alissa Daire Nelson has many talents which she applies to her work as a Certified Strengths Coach, Author, Podcaster, and Speaker. Alissa is the owner of Daire Success Coaching, where she helps clients unlock their strengths and develop those strengths to elevate their business and personal lives.
Alissa recently launched her first book, rebranded her website, and revamped all her marketing materials. This exciting quest for fresh branding brought the two of us together for a full-blown photo session, including creating the image that would be featured as the cover of her new book.
Prior to our session, we discussed the shot list with her branding manager Heather Coughenour, of Rebel 42. With a clear plan in hand, I brought my portable studio to her home in Shoreview and directed her session to fulfill all that was requested. Meg Hume, with Humen Nature Professional Makeup Services, created a polished, natural and flattering makeup, so Alissa looked flawless even before any edits were made to the photos.
It was so gratifying that Alissa was completely in love with her photos when she saw them and shared them on social media right away! Her branding and design team helped choose the perfect image for her book cover, which you can see below. You can purchase it on Amazon or through a link on her website.
Alissa kept all the images we created at her session and you can see how she used several of them on her new site. To see some of my favorites, just scroll down!
Last but not least, here’s what she had to say about her experience working with me:
"I decided to work with Laine because she was recommended by a friend of mine and her portfolio was great. I knew my decision was the right one when she prepared me for my shoot SO well. All the important details were covered and I was set up for total success! Thorough, masterful with light and angles, drew my true personality out (sometimes hard to do when you're uncomfortable in front of a camera!). The whole shoot felt luxurious! I literally receive compliments EVERY day, but the one I get the most often that means the most to me is, "Wow! These pictures are so YOU!" If you are considering working with Laine, just do it. You won't regret the investment. Your brand deserves GREAT photos."
