Tyler and I had such a wonderful time capturing Kira’s first birthday at The Dragon Restaurant in LA. This adorable little girl had lots of friends and family doting on her for her special day with an even more awesome mama that put the entire thing together herself (no event planner!).
A Dol or (Doljabi) is a Korean tradition that celebrates the first year of a baby because in the past when death rates were extremely high many children never lived to see their first birthday. The highlight of the dol is where the child is placed in front of several objects and whichever one they choose will represent what future career they will hold. In Kira’s case she chose a golf ball, so she may be seeing the rewards of being a pro-golfer or a superstar athlete in her future. 🙂
Happy 1st birthday Kira! Thanks again for having us share and capture your celebration!
