Mythological Couples: Hades and PersephoneWere his eyes playing tricks on him? What was Hades doing in his palace?
“Long time no see, dear brother.” Zeus greeted him. “What brings you here?”
“It’s been quite long, yes.” Hades agreed. “Listen, I’ve wanted to talk to you about something.”
“I am all ears then.” Zeus replied, his curiosity peaked. Whatever the matter, it must be quite important, if Hades was willing to leave his palace.

Of course we needed more models, so we recruited my sister Katerina and our friend Gogo too (so, so, so thankful for them) and we were good to go.
Naturally, this photoshoot helped a great deal in the creativity aspect; I loved the concept and I loved how the shots turned out, so I will be spamming you with them over the next few days.
