Limited Capacity seats available

Join Tiffany Kelly in this Instructor-Led Golden Hour Shooting Experience which will focus on fun and natural ways to interact with children (either your own or clients) in order to achieve authentic, unposed portraits. Using two young sisters (age 4 and 5) as her models, Tiffany will demonstrate the games and tricks that she uses for a fun and lighthearted session (or just an afternoon at home), which result in gorgeous, carefree portraits! Tiffany will also show how to capture sweet photos of young children to highlight their connection, in addition to demonstrating how to use beautiful golden hour light optimally with young children who are constantly on the move.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn tips, tricks, and ideas for interacting with children (your own or your clients.)
2. Learn how to elicit genuine emotion and capture fun, authentic portraits.
3. Learn how to use an outdoor activity to engage young child(ren) while still getting photos that match your vision.
4. Learn how to use natural light while photographing young children who are always on the move.
5. Learn how to capture the sweet connections between young siblings or friends.

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.
