This is the beautiful Shannon! She lives in Litchfield, CT with her husband, who also happens to be her college sweetheart. She currently works at an architecture office and completed her testing (a very grueling and long process) so she now officially has her Architecture License. Although she enjoys working the the architecture realm, and helping build a space where people can feel comfortable and at home, her #1 dream job would be to train horses and work on a farm.
When she’s not working, her and her husband work on their piece of property in hopes to eventually build a home there. Five years ago, they started to plant Christmas trees and hope to be able to sell them when they are ready. In the fall, she harvests berries from her orchard and makes jams and jellies. In the winter, she enjoys curling. It’s safe to say that Shannon keeps herself busy and is one hard-working woman!
To relax, Shannon loves to go kayaking, paddle boarding, on nature walks, knitting and work on her garden. Her favorite book of all time is Pride & Prejudice and her binge-worth TV show is The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon (go check out this show, if you haven’t already!).
Like a lot of us, Shannon deals with insecurities and lacking confidence, but even when she’s feeling this way she projects to the world that she’s more confident than ever! With a “fake it till you make it” attitude. If she could give advice to her 13-year-old self she would encourage her to practice self-love.
Shannon chose to do this Boudoir shoot to celebrate getting her Architecture License, something she has been working towards for 6 years. The amount of schooling, internship hours, and work that she had to put in is truly admirable and she definitely deserved a day all about her!
Her favorite inspirational quote is by the one and only, Detective Olivia Benson from Law & Order SVU, “You’re a fighter. Look at everything you’ve overcome. Don’t give up now.”
