ClickAway

This past week I spent time at Click Away, a photography convention put together by ClickinMoms an online forum for photographers and moms! I'm both! I've learned a lot on their website over the years but the main reason I wanted to come to Click Away was to meet Sue Bryce. 


Sue Bryce is a glamour photographer from NZ who has lived internationally and currently lives in LA. She is one of the most uplifting and giving photographers but she is an amazing soul more than anything. She spoke, not on photography, but on self-worth and on self-love and how these things are inherent problems for many women. She has lived it and talked about how to overcome the fears we have of success and the limits we place on ourselves based on our inner conversations. It was beautiful. She's amazing and the chance to meet her was worth the cost of the whole convention. 

 

I was lucky enough to speak with her individually and I laughed because she looked at me and said "You're a shorty, aren't you?" LOL Yeah.. pretty much so. And I think I'm getting shorter with age.  Regardless, she was beautiful and amazing and I completely am excited to continue to learn from her. She teaches a lot about posing women, shooting beautiful portraits of every woman.  I think this is so important! 

 

I took a few classes including a pet photography class - Maverick the model was not at all cooperative, but it was fun to try to get his attention. I took a class on The Playful Photographer - about photographing children at play by Kellie Bieser. Oh my gosh. She's so cute and such a great teacher. You just want to scoop her up and take her home with you.  I took a class by a photographer whose work I admire - Meg Bitton.  I enjoyed the class I took with Michelle Turner who talked about flash and Profoto lights.  Kate Parker shared her Strong is the New Pretty campaign and she's adorable. She looks just like my friend Jill if Jill had blonde hair. :)  So those were the highlights. 

I made a great new friend -- she lives in my hometown where I was born, but she went to college in my current town. My cousin works with her husband, her kids go to my high school and know my cousin's daughter... it was just amazing how many things we had in common and I feel like my sister is going home without me.. Such a fun time. I tend to talk to everyone so I met a lot of cool people. Ann, Mary, Jenny, Emily, Lori... gosh so many I can't recall the rest without looking at my new stack of business cards. 

 

I went on a field trip to old Austin. It was fun but I think I would have liked a little more structure as I'm not one to roam the streets alone. My friend went to an olive farm. I can't wait to hear all about it.   Here are some photos from my trip.
