Something Special!

I recently had the opportunity to photograph a Birthday Party for a little boy turning one! It was an awesome experience - a traditional Korean Birthday with a really special ceremony called a Doljabi.  (when the child is placed in front of a display of symbolic items like pens, books, rice, money and so forth. The belief is that the child's fate will be dictated by whatever he or she picks up at the Doljabi) The Birthday Boy chose money - so wealth is in his future! I loved every minute of meeting this wonderful family! A few of my favorites from the day are below.
