Northern Virginia – Washington DC Dol Dohl (Doljabi) Photographer

Northern Virginia – Washington DC Dol Dohl (Doljabi) Photographer


Korean birthday celebrations or Dol are one of the important facets of Korean culture. The most common meaning is a child’s first birthday or Doljanchi. It can also be used as a generic description for birthdays: Cheot-dol.

This was little Joey’s Dol and I was beyond excited to document this important time in his life. I also had the pleasure of photographing their Maternity Session and Joey’s Newborn Session. For Joey’s Doljabi, he chose a stick which represents bravery. It was a lot of fun to learn about this Korean tradition. I’d love to photograph your child’s Dol!
