A sweet little boy turned one! I had the privilege of photographing him as a newborn. As well as his beautiful momma’s maternity photos. We went to the party as guests and I took a few photos for fun. It was a mix of a regular ‘ol birthday party and a traditional Korean Dol. I didn’t take any photos of when he was in his baby dabho hanbok (traditional clothing) that his grandfather brought from Korea. There was another photographer that came later and I didn’t want to get in her way. 🙂 But I got some really fun snaps of the first part of the party.
I just love this little guy, he is one of the most expressive babies I’ve ever seen. He was on his way over to me and wanted to be snuggled a bit. I could just squeeze him to pieces!
He went straight to the football, which made dad very happy. As everyone burst in applause, he burst into tears! Poor boy, we scared him to pieces!I couldn’t stop eating these! yum!Jinny’s oppa from sunny Cali!Blessing by halmeoni (Grandma’s) PastorHe loved pushing button’s on my camera!This was another fun part for me, Lee Dae-Geun came to the party and I really enjoyed talking with his daughter. We had so much in common. Dae-Geun is a long time actor and celebrity from Korea. I haven’t seen any of his movies but I’m told he is really good at being the tough guy.My hubby is in on the action here. He’s wearing his typical Irish hat. 🙂Here is mommy and ajeossi (uncle) at their Dol(s)
Adorbs!Traditionally gold jewelry is given on the first birthday. The gold ring signifies “longevity and hope for a prosperous life”.
