The former Marine has in the past detailed how she had to prove herself after joining the forces, because some people thought she wouldn't be able to keep up with the rigorous regimen. Now, she wants to show others that they shouldn't let outside opinions define them. Her greatest pleasure is receiving messages from people who deem her an inspiration. 'I want to show girls that they can do and be whoever they want to be if they work at it hard enough,' she said. The model, who worked as an administrative specialist in the forces, sizzled in a new photo shoot, which shows her posing in a variety of outfits, including a burgundy bodysuit with a plunging neckline, and a black lace lingerie ensemble. She relishes the process of getting ready for a photo session, and to showcase the more sensual aspect of her persona. 'I love getting my hair and make-up done! What girls doesn't want to be pampered once in a while? Doing shoots like these give me an opportunity to let another side of me come out,' she added. 'Being able to explore that sexy side of me is fun to do once in a while, and I think every woman deserves to have an opportunity to get all done up and treated like a queen. 'When the shoots are done by professionals and there's a great team of creative energy, it allows you to comfortably enjoy bringing out that inner sultry side.'

A former Marine turned model has revealed men have offered to pay her for ‘private photos’ and have even proposed to her after seeing her sultry snaps—but her policy is to ignore such inquiries.

Shannon Ihrke, 29, from Minnesota, went viral when her bikini and modelling pictures started trending online.

The gorgeous blonde joined the military aged 19 and served on active duty for four years but has since formed a career as a full-time model.

She now has 73,000 followers on Instagram and shares with them pictures from her bikini and lingerie shoots as well as candid photos of her life at home.

Her newfound online fame means Shannon sometimes receives attention in unexpected ways.

‘You get those guys who will offer you money for their own “private photos” or marriage proposals, but I just ignore them and sometimes just laugh them off,’ she said.

‘I model because it’s something I love to do, it’s not to get money or marriage proposals from men. I’ve even had people I’ve never met say they want to fly me places. That’s never going to happen, I’ve seen the movie Taken before.

‘I simply enjoy exploring my modelling range and working with some incredibly talented artists and trying to help others along the way. ‘
