Ethan's First Birthday and Doljabi

Susan and Eugene invited us to document a very special milestone in their son's life: his first birthday and doljabi. The doljabi is a Korean tradition that foretells a child's future: the child is placed in front of a table of symbolic objects (string, books, money, rice, etc.) and then encouraged to pick one. In this case, Ethan selected a stethoscope, foretelling his future occupation as a doctor! His "dol" table was also stacked with colorful rice cakes and towering fruit, symbolizing a life of prosperity. It was truly a blessing to witness this special celebration!
