August's First Birthday


A few weeks ago, I photographed this handsome boy's first birthday. His parents, Jane and Andrew put together a wonderful party and a Dol ceremony as well. A Dol is a traditional Korean ceremony that celebrates the first birthday of a baby and blesses them with a prosperous future. August was put in front of a number of objects and depending on what he selects, that will foretell his future. August picked a calligraphy brush and some coins which means he will be a wealthy scholar!

This party got me thinking of Eloise's first birthday which is coming up soon! I wasn't going to do much but after attending August's party, I am inspired!

Happy birthday sweet little August!
