This Golden Hour Shooting Experience with a young family will inspire you to capture great memories beyond those cheesy grins! Join Danielle Hatcher and gain confidence in your skills to capture genuine interaction without anyone looking awkward, silly, or out of place. You will learn games and other tricks that invite genuine interaction with your families. Have fun at this interactive session by getting past "say cheese," and walk away with confidence in applying these new skills into your workflow!

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn the importance of managing client expectations from the beginning.
2. Discuss the importance of a family questionnaire in getting to know your families.
3. Learn tricks and games to play with your client families to get genuine interaction, besides "sitting and smiling" for the camera.
4. Brainstorm ideas to help put the parents at ease during the session.
5. Walk away with confidence in applying these new skills into your workflow.

Mission San Jose:
This Golden Hour Shooting Experience will take place at Mission San Jose (just a short 15 minute bus ride from the Marriott Rivercenter). Established in 1720, and known as the "Queen of the Missions," San Jose is the showpiece of the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park and tells the early story of San Antonio and European expansion in the New World.

The grounds of Mission San Jose is a huge area (over six acres inside the gates) that gives you ample room to photograph kids and families at play. The walls provide great framing opportunities, with many windows and doors all around the perimeter. There are also several stone walls (without doors and windows) if you are looking for plain stone backdrops. You’ll also find some interesting arches next to the church and at the entrance - they, along with the repeating doors and windows, give you the opportunity to use repeating elements in your composition. There are a few big trees throughout, but in many areas you’ll see the wide open sky. You’ll be able to use the walls to help you stay in the shade (if that’s what you are after) or partially block the sun. Because the Mission is massive and is outside of the city, you’ll find plenty of space for shooting outside of the walls as well. The outdoor grounds of Mission San Jose have been reserved for Click Away on this evening, so you won't have to work around public visitors. There will be a wedding rehearsal going on inside the Mission San Jose Church, so we ask that you remain on the expansive outdoor grounds rather than venturing inside the church.
