The Goddess Within

 

This summer, the Summit City Pinups came together for a concept shoot that left us all in complete awe! Each pinup chose a Goddess of lore to portray, and then created their “look” and costume based on the story of that Goddess…

The object was to celebrate the Goddess in each of us.  Every woman could identify with some aspect of the Goddess she chose.  What came about was nothing short of stunning!  These women are an absolute delight and being surrounded by their charming personalities, and creative spirits is awe inspiring!  Their mission is to empower women to be true to their inner Goddess and embrace their femininity.

Over the coming week, we’ll be sharing photos from this shoot, and we hope you’ll be as inspired as we were!
