Baby Grant's First Birthday Dol - Los Angeles, CA - 01.14.12

I was given the honor to photograph a very special celebration for Baby Grant's first birthday party.  A traditional celebration in the Korean culture is the Dol in which the family gathers for food and celebration (much like a regular birthday party.)  During the Dol there is a big event called the Doljabi,  and every Korean family has their baby dressed in their traditional clothing (a hanbok) sitting at the head table.  The highlight of the Doljabi is where you put a few items in front of the baby to see which they will choose.  This is suppose to foretell their future.  Items typically include a pen (scholar), money (wealth), string (long life), golf ball (athlete), etc.

Happy 1st Birthday Grant!!
