Welcome to our little space on the net! This blog is just about our family life, and began as a way to keep family and friends updated on what was going on with my pregnancy with our first son, Gage. We've since added Evie to our family, and I continue to blog about family life, car seats, spina bifida, and anything else that catches my attention.

Exceptional Images of the Ordinary

You may remember these pics from December.  A little trip to see a train turned into an impromptu photo session.  We decided to go back again with the good camera, and the real photographer behind the lens with the intention of capturing some great pics.  Well, our trip didn't go exactly as planned.  After several days of highs in the 80s, it was back to upper 90s.  To top it off, there were workers all over the train this time, painting it.  It is going to look great when it's done, but it was a little difficult to work around them and the wet paint, not to mention the searing hot metal.  Despite the setbacks, Dad was still able to capture some truly awesome photos of the kids.

That last one?  It's taking center stage in my living room.  I LOVE that image!

Dad's real photography niche is for capturing "exceptional images of the ordinary."  Here are some of the non-kid images he's captured (okay, so the shadow kid is Gage, but you wouldn't know that if I hadn't told you, right?)  You can see his images at www.russellfordphoto.com or on www.fineartamerica.com by clicking on one of the images below.
