A couple of weeks ago, I photographed Brooks’ 1st birthday party. He had the traditional Korean 1st birthday, a dohl. The poor guy wasn’t feeling good and even had a runny nose so he wasn’t too happy to see me at first but as the day went on, he really opened up to me and started smiling for the pictures. His guests enjoyed the great Korean cuisine provided my Woo Lae Oak restaurant as well as the amazing balloon artist and talented caricature artist.
At his party, I got to experience my first Georgetown cupcake. I never really understood what all the hype was about but after I ate the cupcake, I finally understood…it was pretty darn tasty especially the cream cheese icing. Brooks also enjoyed his smash cake. At first, he was hesitant about eating the cake and was only using 1 hand to dig in but as soon as he realized what the cake tasted like, he dug right in with 2 hands and was dancing in his chair.
It was a pleasure meeting this little guy and being part of his special day.
