Remember when we photographed Avery and her family for some portraits? Only a few weeks later, it was Avery’s first birthday party in Koreatown’s Hello Italian Fusion restaurant, and the place was decked out in beautiful decor for her big day with beautiful table garlands and centerpieces, bunches of white roses, and a desert table that just makes me swoon.
Avery wore a pretty white dress to greet all the guests, and changed into a traditional Korean dress when it was time to decide her career, which is a Korean tradition for first birthdays. You’ll have to scroll through the images to see what item she chose!
One year ago, I photographed little Mateo being delivered into this world. Now, he’s all grown up! Celebrating his one year birthday with close friends and family members at a park in Monterey Park, Mateo dressed up in an adorable onesies with a bow-tie and a golfer’s hat – dapper as always!
There were more than family and friends at the birthday party, however, as members of Yo Gabba Gabba stopped by to wish Mateo a happy birthday as well! Everyone seemed to have had such a great time, especially when it came to hitting the piñatas for the candy rain to occur.
Mateo, thank you for having me as your one-year birthday photographer!
