Capture the Moment

March 7, 2013

I recently had the opportunity to photograph a one-year old’s birthday banquet. I’m pretty particular when it comes to photographing events since photography is not my day job, I can be selective in the shoots that I do. I’m thankful for that.

The family was Korean and the traditional doljanchi ceremony was to take place right after the banquet. Mom told me that I could under no circumstances miss the moment when her son reached for the item on the table that would foretell his future.

As a sports photographer, I was confident I would be able to capture the magical moment. The moment below is a few frames after he reached for the coin that symbolized that he would be rich in life. Although it is not the precise moment he reached for the coin, I think this shot tells the whole story. I love this shot because of mom’s reaction when she realized her son was going to be rich.

    My firstborn picked the pen. Sadly, she will likely be broke but smart, like her parents.
