I met Smith‘s mother Amy during a maternity shoot while she was here in the US waiting to give birth. She had been living in Germany where her husband is stationed and while he was away doing his duty, she needed to be with her family to welcome Smith. I have been lucky enough to get to photograph him and their family every time they come to the states for a visit.

This time, Smith wore a traditional german outfit and no joke…these were the real deal leather lederhosen. All I kept thinking was ‘whoa, that could cause some serious chafing!‘ but regardless…Smith was his usual sweet happy self!
