I recently had the opportunity to shoot the Esoy family before Christmas. My friend Gilbert and I (thanks Gilbs) scoped out Terranea (in Palos Verdes) for the first time and man this place was gorgeous. Definitely a great place to shoot portraits, weddings, or even practice landscapes. I felt an instant chemistry with the family and it allowed me to capture them with a natural feel. The day felt more like playing at the park with my own cousin's and niece. It was a challenge to try to get Gwenyth to say anything or even smile but after maybe an hour and 3 scenery changes she was yapping up a storm.
Now everyone lift Gwenyth with your faces!
Show them the light Gwenyth!
I couldn't get enough of these dancing shots. It was so funny trying to get Gwenyth to do the “ballerina.”…And the “Sprinkler.” Come on Mom show'em show it's done!
The true “Simba” came out and we couldn't stop making her “roar.”
Update: Look what I got in the mail! Snapped a photo of it and uploaded it here:
