Last week I went to the classy and elegant Grand Hotel Minneapolis in downtown Minneapolis to do some Boudoir shots. Thanks to Chris Meyer for organizing the shoot. Other photographers were: Tamrah Ryan, Sara Weitzel, Tom Ward and Nick & Hillary.

Images like these are great for a very special gift to that certain someone or even fun to have for yourself.

Here are some of my favorite shots of Aly. Enjoy!

A little while back I worked on a project where I had to produce a movie poster, featuring ME. Yikes! I really don’t like being in front of the camera, but hey, those where the rules. I fairly quickly pictured in my mind what I wanted on the poster.

One day after the kids came home from school I quickly put my dress on from my sisters wedding, my biker boots and at least two inches of make-up. My kids stared at me when I got out of the bathroom and started giggling at me. Don’t laugh I said, grab my tripod and get in the car.

We went down to the farm and I set up a few shots by an old car and a tractor. The whole time I had this old truck in mind and in the end it is what ended up working. The kids got busy chasing down the dog and so I lost my “photographers” right away. It is a little hard running back and forth to hit the timer and then compose yourself so I told the girls they had to take turns being my photographers. Stine just smiled and kept firing shot after shot. When it was Maria’s turn she got a small step stool, looked carefully through the viewfinder and made sure Mamma was ready. It was so cute. She’d actually tell me what looked good and what didn’t. Quite an eye there.

Well, after a ton of shots in not very much time I decided on this one. When I sat down to make it into a poster I remembered the highway picture and the airplane shots I had as well and it quickly became a collage. Let me know what you think.  ; )

Here is another poster. Again, I had the image in my mind. Shot the dice and Maria was again appointed photographer. She laughed as I made all these funny faces. It is amazingly hard to imagine what it looks like unless you’re behind the camera. I know that’s where I belong, but it is helpful knowing the feeling of how much good direction makes a difference. I think it turned out quite cool. Let me know what you think.
