Happy Birthday Jake

Jake was 3 on Sunday. An outdoor party on the lawn in front of our apartment building ( pollution levels were low enough!  ) , a bouncy castle and lots of sugar ensured chaos with the party descending into a water fight which was perfect given the heat and humidity .Thankfully there were no broken bones. 

This portrait was taken back in February, its one of my favorites of Jake , taken on Portra 160 film as the the light was fading at Bondi beach skate park , Australia. Shot wide open at f1.4 to get a reasonable shutter speed and nice subject isolation , it also captures Zac in the background looking out over the sea.
