CT Boudoir Portraits {Dawn | June 2016}

"A strong woman is one who feels deeply and loves fiercely, her tears flow just as abundantly as her laughter... A strong woman is both soft and powerful.  She is both practical and spiritual...A strong woman in her essence is a gift to the world." This quote couldn't hit the nail on the head more when it comes to describing the grace and strength that Dawn has in her work ethic, her life, and her marriage.

She is a hardworking project engineer for a multimillion dollar contracting company, while also juggling being a mommy to one very loving and friendly German Shepherd.  She is married to a man she loves with all of her heart, and she is committed to staying healthy and fit.  She proved this when she earned 2nd and 4th place at a recent Women's Body competition here in New England.

Dawn decided as a celebration of her victories both at the competition and the months of hard work prior to, she would book this day of beauty and pampering not only as a gift to her husband, but a gift to herself.  After-all, she deserved it.  I visited her home a few days prior to help choose some wardrobe items and we narrowed it down to a few sexy get-ups, an amazing knit shirt and her competition suit.

When she arrived, Dawn brought a bottle of champaign to start the pampering, and Chelsea {Beauty by Chelsea Dae} began styling Dawn's hair followed by her professional make-up application.  Dawn was feeling extremely confident and looking gorgeous!  We hit the bed right off the bat with our implied nudes as we always do, just her and the white sheets.  Simply stunning.  Then, we threw on some sexy black lingerie for a little more flirty and sexy shots followed by that knit black top I mentioned early to bring in a little Sunday morning sexy!

Before getting into her competition get-up, we threw on two last pretty and colorful pieces, one being a gorgeous and flirty coral babydoll and the other being a mint green vintage nightgown.  Can you say to die for?

Before heading out to the brook in back, Dawn got into her sparkling competition outfit and we put together a pretty dark sweet masterpiece of her with her trophies.  She looked so proud and damn right should be.

We finished off the shoot out back in the river as Dawn and her German Shepherd splashed around in the river while sporting an athletic two piece that showed off all of her sexy muscles!  We had such a great time, and although dawn hoped for a little rain for some fun outdoor shots - we still had an incredible turn-out.bodybuilding, fitness competition, CT boudoir, Connecticut boudoir photographer, sexy lingerie, white sheets, New Preston, Litchfield Countybodybuilding, fitness competition, CT boudoir, Connecticut boudoir photographer, sexy lingerie, white sheets, New Preston, Litchfield County
