  • Ulla is lovely, she takes direction extremely well while maintaining her own sophisticated style, it’s always a pleasure to work with her!


  • I just recently shot Ulla, and I would have to say she’s one of the kindest people I’ve ever worked with in this industry. Very expressive eyes. Took direction really well. She could do many kind of looks, as well. She’s a very appreciative person.
