I prefaced our photo shoot by apologizing for the things I might say and promising I loved them no matter what. Ha! This photo shoot very nearly didn't happen. I'm having some issues with my hands (pain, loss of strength, etc...), and there are days I struggle to even grip my camera (this shoot was brought to you by prayer and Extra Strength Excedrin). It's been 2 years since our last photo shoot, and this one was sort of thrown together at the last minute -- but I realized all that really mattered to me was getting my boys in front of my camera. Mission accomplished.
