Cali’s Dol | First Birthday Party | Rococo Room Pasadena

Happy Dol sweet Cali:)

In Korea the first birthday of a child is a very significant event. It’s called “dol janchi” or in Hangeul: 돌잔치.  The head table is the main attraction with dol towers, rice cakes (duk) and fruit. The birthday baby will be dressed in a hanbok, a traditional Korean outfit. The highlight of the festivities occurs when it’s time for the doljabi (돌잡이) ritual. This is the time when various items are placed in front of the child and guest watch to see what the child picks up first. It is believed that whatever he chooses will determine his future.
Beautiful tablescape
I just LOVE Cali’s sweet smile:)
This party was perfect in every way.

Maternity Session | Mike & Johanna

My dearest friend, Mike(e) & his awesome wife, Johanna are having their first baby!!!

Can’t believe it’s been 15 years since we first met. I remember trips to McDonald’s on Tuesday for their $0.29 hamburgers & Sunday’s for their $0.39 cheeseburgers, trips to 7-eleven for their icees, studying, NOT;) making forts in the living room, trips up north & to Vegas. There are SOO many awesome memories that I will always cherish & having a friend like you in college has been a real blessing. You have ALWAYS had such a kind heart & have always been there for your friends. Johanna is such a sweet person & I am so happy we have been able to keep in touch after college. Can’t wait to hangout even more after your baby arrives.

Johanna, you are glowing!!!
You two are so cute together~!!!
Welcome to what will be the craziest, most tiresome & most rewarding time of your life. You will feel love like you have never felt & it (love) & your baby will rock your world. All in the most awesomest way possible of course. Can’t wait for future play dates where us mamas can drink & daddies watch after the kiddos;)

So happy I was able to shoot this beautiful moment in your lives.
