The Gonosey Family - Sacramento Family Portrait Photographer


We aren't technically family, but Brian and I have always considered each other "cousins".  Our mothers have been best friends since the 7th grade and, being born only nine days apart, we literally grew up together.  My memories of him go way back... as in, I've got a couple of good bathtub stories.  Plus, he had a killer Lego collection!  I think our moms always hoped we'd grow up and get married, but we were always simply great friends/cousins.  We did choose to go to Sonoma State together, and lucky for him, he met his awesome and lovely wife, Shelby, there and they have created a beautiful life together... complete with two breathtakingly adorable girls!  

I love love love this family!  They live in LA, so we don't get to see them as often as we'd like, but they're one of those couples we wish we could hang out with all the time :)
