I've known the Smiths for a while. I was the lucky photographer at Dani & Colby's gorgeous La Veta, Colorado wedding last year (Check them out Here: Dani & Colby's Wedding Blog).
The week of the Smith's photoshoot was a big one. They welcomed a new sister from South Africa, who had relocated to be with their brother, and the matriarch had a birthday. The star of this shoot, in my humble option, is 1-year-old claire, who is named for her great grandmother who she is pictured with below. Last summer at the wedding she had yet to make her arrival!
