CT Boudoir Portraits {Ms. H | April 2016}

He proposed to her with a scavenger hunt, the final note asking her to marry him.  It was the most romantic and exciting night of her life.  Within minutes she's on the phone with friends and family telling them the news and suddenly the planning begins.  Dresses, flowers, venues, themes, colors.  Lindsey and her husband both loved the outdoors, country music and nature.  She requested that we incorporate that into her shoot.  We did.  She brought the most beautiful cowboy boots with elegant white lace trimmings. We started off her session with refreshments, and professional hair & make-up by Chelsea of Beauty by Chelsea Dae.  Soft curls, natural make-up and an overall sexy look.  We started with the ever-popular white sheet poses...yes, the first thing I tell you to do is undress and wrap up in a sheet!  No worries thought, undies stay on.  This is where we take the implied nudes.  Timeless, tasteful and sexy.

Then... we broke out those cowgirl boots paired with the cutest navy undies trimmed with flirty lace along the edges.  This would make ANY husband drool!

We threw on the matching babydoll top to those super cute undies for a slightly different look, before Lindsey switched into the black lace pair.  Ohhhhhh boy did we get some remarkable shots in that set...you must see for yourself.  Our last outfit in the studio before heading to the fields was an oversized sweater provided by our studio wardrobe.  Simple, sexy and oh-so-flirty.

Oh, but I forgot, I begged Lindsey to try on a new black babydoll we got in the studio, and LOOK at it on her!  So stunning <3  We headed down the road to a large open field where we rocked some breathtakingly beautiful shots of Lindsey vs. the sunlight.  She looks like an angel wrapped in white.

We of course did not want to forget to pull in her hubby's outdoor roots, so between the saddle and the flower head-wreath, we pulled off some absolutely ravishing outdoor portraits that will be sure to drop her hubby's jaw.  Oh - and we can't forget the American Flag, in showing their patriotism and commitment to each other and our country. {Lindsey is a nurse and her hubby is a firefighter!}

I must say this was one of my favorite sessions to date.  Lindsey was so laid back and easy to work with and I think her images say it all.  She ordered a beautiful custom leather album to present to her hubby on their wedding day <3

Lindsey asked that I wait to publish this until after the wedding, so... here it is!  CONGRATULATIONS LINDSEY!!

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.
