Kai’s Dol-Korean 1st Birthday {Los Angeles Children’s Photographer}

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph my first Dol for Kai! I have never been to a Korean first birthday party, so I had no idea what to expect. I knew it was steeped in rich tradition, so I did some research beforehand, and Mike and Suchin did not disappoint!

Mike and Suchin requested a brightly colored background, and I found this beautiful plain background in Marmalade! Love it!

The table was set with brightly colored goodies, flowers and gifts for little Kai.

First he had to change into his hanbok.

Then he sat on the table with the goodies for his photo op

From there, Mom and Dad picked out objects that Kai was to choose from, determining his future.

Tradition says the little one is to choose their own objects with no coaxing from their parents, but Suchin definitely had her hopes set on the stethoscope  (for a successful career) and the coins (for wealth and generosity)!

Kai chose wisely! The stethoscope and coins it was!

Momma is very happy!

Once the festivities were over, we headed outside for a few portraits.

Kai was a true sport and wore his birthday hat the whole time (although, I do suspect he forgot all about it!)

Thanks Kai, Mike and Suchin for allowing me to share in such a great tradition!

Best giggles! {Camarillo Children’s Photographer}

These two brothers had me laughing!

I just love their smiles…

I have been photographing them for years now, and it’s just so cool to see them grow into their own.

Beautiful afternoon for a family portrait {Los Angeles Family Portrait Photography}

I have known Bonnie since elementary school and was absolutely thrilled when she contacted me about having her family portraits taken! Her husband Matt is an awesome guy, and the girls? Well, the girls are the most adorable and sweetest little ones ever!

We met up at Leo Carrillo State Beach in the afternoon, and aside from some wind, it was a perfect afternoon!

Thanks Bonnie, it was great seeing you and your family!
