Doljabi -Korean first birthday celebration

It was a nice party I've photographed recently. Happy to share a small selection of images.

I was shooting the Doljabi (Korean First Birthday Celebration) for the 2nd time. It is very special for me and I am happy to be a part of this amazing event!

Little Riley was wearing two beautiful outfits. One of them is hanbok - traditional Korean dress. She dressed up for the Doljabi game  - the Korean tradition to celebrate the first birthday of a baby. It is a ritual where the child is placed in front of some objects  with different meaning. Then she need to pick up one of them. It is believed that the one selected will foretell the child's future. Riley picked up the hammer so she can become a justice when she grows up. Good choice!
