Choose Adventure {Terry Beigie Photography Steampunk Photoshoot}

“Steampunk is an eclectic world of cogs and rivets. It is airships, goggles and steam. It is romance. It is traveling on clouds and diving  beneath rugged waves. It is adventure.” Aether Emporium

I have been enjoying my Class of 2018 seniors to NO END! I love all my clients, of course, but for different reasons. This year’s class is one of imagination, adventure and a willingness to GO FOR IT! Life is about taking those chances. I realize I’m just an old lady telling you guys that, but I have the benefit of a time machine–I can look back through my memories and see where I have regrets. All of my regrets (at least most) have to do with a lack of self-confidence and unwillingness to branch out and try something, go for it, become a BOSS. I may have opened my own photography business, finally, but not until I was almost 40 years old.

I have wanted to do a Steampunk photoshoot since Treasure Planet came out (I loved that movie way more than my even my kids did!)

A HUGE thank you to the Virginia Museum of Transportation in Roanoke, and its awesome steam engines, for allowing us to do this photoshoot over the summer. I am pretty sure it was THE hottest day in all the world but Clara and Devin were such total troopers!! So many younger kids kept staring at them and loved their costumes. And we loved that!! Plus we had a lovely lunch with Devin’s grandparents, Diann & Pat, who live in Roanoke. Costumes: most of the items were made by me, or at least embellished by me. I made Devin’s cane and gun, and his dad, Derek, supplied the boots and one of his necklace embellishments. Clara’s mom, Jenni, had the first necklace she allowed us to use.

Believe in yourselves and take the adventure!
