Triplets First Birthday | Boston Event Photographer

Saturday I had to opportunity to assist my friend Paula for a triplets first birthday shoot. The party was held at the Four Seasons in Boston, with guests enjoying brunch and traditional Korean celebrations for a Tol. Caden, Caleb, and Cara were adorable dressed up in several outfits, including beautiful Korean dress.

This is my favorite from the day, I love that little face peaking out over mom’s shoulder!

The food looked delectable, even I wanted to try the sushi (and I’m the pickiest eater). I tried the Korean rainbow colored steamed rice cake, mujigae-ddeok.

Following tradition, the children participated in a Toljabee Event. A bowl was filled with items such as rice, money and rope, representing plentiful eating, wealth, and longevity. Then the triplets picked up an item that attracts him or her and the child’s future is predicted according to the what he or she grabs. I thought this was so interesting, so I researched a little online and found out that Korean parents usually place the items that they want the child to choose near to the edge of the bowl – that would explain why Sang (a dentist) put a dentist’s tool in the front of the bowl! All three children picked the dentist’s tool which was funny for everyone.

The table upfront had a gorgeous first birthday cake, and the family cut the cake together.

David & Patrick | Boston Wedding Photographer

Let’s rewind a bit. At the end of the year, after the crazy rush of holiday portraits, I had the opportunity to shoot a wedding with my friend and fellow Boston photographer, Mike Blanchard. David and Patrick had a beautiful candlelight ceremony in their home with their two sons, N & J, surrounded by friends and family. They had a killer wedding logo created {d+p} and of course, I had to get a ring shot with that. The cool thing about David and Patrick’s rings is that they are identical and they’ve both worn each one.

The details were simple and beautiful.

I love these shots of D + P helping their boys get ready for the ceremony.

Some shots of the ceremony, everyone squeezed into their living room for the intimate exchange.

Even though it was late, the kids participated in the ceremony and J managed to make it through with a little help from Papa.

At the reception, guests dined on a 4 course meal with wine pairings and were entertained by several preformers.

A classy affair all around, glad I could be a part of D+P’s day!
