I absolutely love having the opportunity to photograph children as they grow. I’ve had the honor of photographing this little one when he was still in his Mama’s belly, and again as a newborn. He’s now celebrating his first birthday; amazing how the time flies!
In the photo below, little Haedan is he’s wearing a hanbok, the traditional Korean dress clothes worn during traditional festivals and celebrations. I think the saturated colors of his outfit set against this verdant landscape is truly a stunning combination.
We did the photo shoot at one of my favorite locations, Mills College in Oakland, which also happens to be my alma mater. It’s like a photo playground for me, with so many great backdrops full of interesting color and texture. These long summer days are the perfect time to be out capturing images. Plus, giving kids some nature to interact with always keeps them interested!
