No shoes. Soft mats. Lots of color. Balloons, banners and full-sized jungle gym equipment indoors. What could be better? The guests at this 1st birthday party would agree there are few things to rival such pure fun. I had such a great time photographing this family and their little son who has made it through that first challenging year on earth. There were plenty of friends and family at every turn to celebrate alongside them. Those bright colors were only muted by the sense of collective joy bouncing off the walls. Way-to-go Gymboree!
