Photos and Words by Jea Lee Photography
The day for me wasn't like any ordinary doljanchi [Korean first birthday celebration] that I've photographed in the past. Normally, the father of the baby would go around the room, greeting friends and family and leaving the wife behind to watch the child. This doljanchi was different. The father looked so proud, his son was turning 1! He would carry him around the room, saying hi to everyone. When it was time for the child to see what his future was in stored for him, he chose a golf ball. His father was even more happy!
