The One Where He Walked Away

It's been so long since I've written I don't even know where to start. 

Somehow I managed to become very busy. Not that I'm complaining mind you. I don't mind being busy and the fact that my business is taking off is not a surprise it just happened faster then I had expected. 

I hear vlogging is the big thing these days. Maybe that would be easier to do than sit down and write. Might be kinda fun having someone video tape one of my sessions. But then I suppose there is editing and adding music and stuff. Still, I might give it a try. I have an action cam just waiting to be used. You never know, book a session with me end up on YouTube. Which brings me to this session. 

I have been extremely lucky. The people I get to work with are great. I know every photographer says that but I mean it. The Althoff's were no exception. While my gorgeous assistant (my wife) talked to Dani I started looking around for shooting locations. I had been in the area a few weeks prior but we had to cancel and move dates and some of the scenery had changed. The first thing I noticed was this big red barn door. I loved it and couldn't wait to start shooting. I literally called out for my first victim. 

Say ello to my leetle friend. This guy gave my blog it's title. While I was shooting he apparently got tired of it and just walked away. I started laughing as did everyone else and I yelled after him HEY THERE IS NO WALKING AWAY IN PHOTOGRAPHY. 

But it was ok, I was ready for my next victim. His sister, who I must say did a far better job of staying still and smiling. Just kidding Grady you did great once I told you there was no walking away. I'm laughing right now as I'm typing this. 

We proceeded to walk all over the property and down the road to the river. I think that was the most exercise I've had at a session, but it was a beautiful afternoon and no one seemed to mind. So by the time it was over I had taken some great shots and everyones legs and cheeks were sore. Yes I broke people's smiles again. Seems to be a habit with me. 

Here are a few of my favorite shots from the session. I hope you like them as much as I do. Until next time and who knows when that will be, stay warm, safe and I hope your Holidays are everything you dreamed they would be. Merry Christmas everyone.
