Boudoir Inspiration: Classical Goddess

I’ve always been a huge fan of Ancient Greek & Roman mythology, and I’ve always really liked the look of classic elements in fashion and beauty, like embellished empire waists, high piled hair with hairchains or headbands, golden makeup, sandals that lace up the leg, etc.

And using classical goddess inspiration could not be more perfect than for a boudoir shoot, since a big part of boudoir is to make you feel amazing, to make you realize that you’re powerful, beautiful, and, well, a goddess!

There are tons of different ways to use this inspiration for poses and props and settings, too.  There are any number of goddesses {and gods!} in the mythology that you could borrow the personality of for a day.

How about an Artemis shoot in the woods with bow & arrow?

Or an Athena shoot in a room filled with books?  I could easily see fun paper-confetti shots with that one.

Or a spring or summer-themed Demeter shoot?

You could even extend this possibility to a maternity boudoir session as Hestia, goddess of the hearth and home.  Or an anytime shoot using one – or a few – of the Muses for inspiration.

PLEASE NOTE: I do not take credit for any of these images.  Credit is given, when known, at the bottom of this post.

To which god or goddess do you most closely relate?
