Limited Capacity seats available

Join Ashley Berrie for this Golden Hour Shooting Experience on exploring and capturing the bonds between child and parents. You will have the opportunity to photograph a family and learn how to encourage them to show the real, raw emotions they have for one another. Capture these relationships as they genuinely are and in a way that your subjects forget the camera is even there. Learn to prepare yourself and your camera settings for that split second when a mother and child lock eyes and smile; that is a heart-melting moment you will not want to miss. Create a relaxed, encouraging session that allows even the stubborn dads to have a little fun with their children and capture a memory that they will cherish forever.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn to understand the different dynamics of each parent/child relationship to prepare yourself before a session.
2. Create an encouraging environment to allow parents and children to be themselves.
3. Learn optimal camera settings for fleeting moments you may otherwise miss.
4. Effectively communicate with your clients throughout the session to encourage sincere displays of affection and happiness.

The Alamo:
This Golden Hour Shooting Experience will take place at the Alamo (just a short walk from the Marriott Rivercenter). Established in 1724 as Mission San Antonio de Valero – the first mission in San Antonio – the Alamo is known as the "Shrine of Texas Liberty" and is the number one tourist destination in Texas. 

The Alamo has two distinct features— the buildings/walls and the lush greenery. Access to the buildings and walls is fairly easy from outside the Alamo itself or at several points inside the gates. The greenery provides full or partial coverage, allowing you to play with the amount of natural light as well as the direction. Even though you’ll be able to see other photographers due to the layout of the Alamo, you’ll find that creative use of the greenery can give a very private, or “Secret Garden,” feel to your images. There are several benches at a number of places within the walls. If you head outside the gates, you’ll find a bigger common area and more bright, unobstructed sunlight. The Alamo has been reserved for Click Away on this evening, so you won't have to work around public visitors if you plan to remain inside the gates near the Alamo gardens.
