Even though the first set of pictures was only taken one year ago, Winston looks so incredibly tiny!
Let me explain something to you guys. I’ve been consistently photographing this kid since he was 3 months old! From our first shoot at Hotel San Jose, to his first birthday party (unfortunately, not blogged) to today – his 2nd – it’s astounding to look back and see how much he’s grown.
But, one thing has stayed the same: a wonderful group of friends gather together every year to celebrate this special little boy. It amazes me to see how many people love him – and each other – and remain so close!
So – onto this year’s party!
What do you get when you put a cute 2 year old + cake + a petting zoo with “widdle baby goats” + silly string together? One awesome birthday party for one cool kid!
Winston was rocking Austin chic, with a Japanese batman shirt, formal grey trousers and long, tousled locks. He even sported some pretty rad tattoos (temporary of course) and showed them off at every opportunity.
I’ve been to a few parties with petting zoos now… but nothing could prepare me for the shock that the miniature pony brought into my life. There was nothing miniature about him! Even though it caught me off guard, the kids loved riding the pony and I got some great shots of their trips around the backyard.
I can only imagine how happy and proud Ginger and Jason are of their son. Even as a spectator, it warmed my heart to see him so excited in the middle of his party. He really seemed to appreciate and enjoy every aspect: from the “widdle baby goats” (his words!) to the cookie monster cupcakes… he had a blast.
Ginger + Jason: thanks again for including me in your annual tradition and once again inviting me to capture your wonderful memories and spirits! I look forward to future par-tays!
