Complete PR Photos for Best-Selling Author and Sales Coach President Ursula Mentjes
I would not be surprised if you have already heard of Ursula Mentjes. Ursula is an amazing entrepreneur, best-selling author, and the president of Sales Coach Now. She is getting ready for a new book launch, graced the most recent magazine cover for savibizmag.com and needed an array of photos for a speaker sheet, a website re-do, and different social media platforms. We had a long shot list!
This exciting photo shoot happened at Hotel Ivy, which is a regular business spot for Ursula. It is important to feel comfortable during a photoshoot, and this was a familiar place with familiar faces for her. It also allowed us to use their beautiful furniture in our shots, especially after their recent renovation.
Ursula's makeup was done by the sweet and talented Meg Hume, who ensured she looked even more beautiful. Another invaluable assist came from my husband, Chris, who helped me set up my lighting for the shots. We tried a new lighting style with a ring light which is very flattering and even, and produced beautiful round catchlights in Ursula’s eyes. Check it out:
Our choices for clothes were sophisticated and soft, with colors that Ursula is naturally inclined to wear. Our main focus was to show the real energy she brings to her work. With our whole group working so well together, there was a lot of positive energy in the room, and the day went quickly. We made the most of the clothing changes and the beautiful location where we were shooting, but, of course, the real star of the day was Ursula: she looked gorgeous as always!
We photographed the potential cover for her new book, which is not out yet, so I am unable to share it, BUT here's the magazine cover we shot, which has been released:
I was touched by the following comments Ursula made when she got to review the photos:
“Laine is a #rockstarphotog! I loved working with her and the photos exceeded my expectations. Laine is super gifted and has a way of drawing out the VERY best version of you. Plus, her team is phenomenal and made everything run smoothly and easily. I highly recommend Laine as a photographer for your next photoshoot or event!”
Thank you, Ursula, for your wonderful words. I really enjoyed our photo session and I wish you all the best!
