Late last year, I had the amazing experience of photographing a traditional Korean Dol, or Doljabi. This is a huge 1st birthday celebration featuring lots of food, guests and fun. But the highlight of the Dol, and what everyone is waiting to see, is when the child is placed in front of various items and encouraged to pick one. It is thought that the item that is chosen will foretell the child's future.
Sweet Adelaide had her sights on the xylophone but at the last minute chose rice, which symbolizes an abundant life.
It was a day filled with friends, family and most certainly love for the birthday girl.
