I grew up in Korea so I get excited when I get to celebrate Korean culture. So I was really psyched when I was asked to photograph a Korean-American first birthday for baby Nolan! This is by far the most important and celebrated birthday in Korean person's life, filled with colorful traditional silk outfits, rice cakes, treats, and decorations. Another fun element of a Korean first birthday is when several objects are laid out for the baby to grab. Each one symbolizes a different future for the baby (for example, a stethoscope might foretell a future in medicine!). Of course there were lots of yummy food and cakes, magician/balloon artist to make the day extra special! Nolan is so lucky to have so many family and friends to celebrate his special day! Happy birthday~!
