graffiti at its best!















this was my favorite session from BODO yet!  we found the best colors and textures.  gosneys were game for anything and actually found most of the cool spots we used.  boise is such a great town!!  their oldest is going off to college so it was really fun to watch them as a family before this next big chapter in her life...

california portraits...

we just returned home from a sunny week in southern california! 30+ people under one roof! every other year my mom treats us to some wonderful place all together... you can scroll down to the next post for a few of our adventures, but i couldn't let the week go by without capturing some family portraits on the beach.




















































































i'm tacking on a few taken by my brother's wife of their adorable SIX boys. her camera was having a "moment" so she lost her best pics but we salvaged some of them. i have so many adorable nephews!















































southern california ~ capistrano beach

here are a few photos from our FUN week in sunny capistrano beach! we hit sea world and dana point, played games, surfed, swam, soaked in the sun and ate ourselves silly :) growing up we always spent a week on the beach so this was SUCH a fun opportunity to reminisce and enjoy the beautiful ocean & sand. one brother got stung by a sea ray while surfing. (he's the doctor in the family so better him than us?!?) some of my brothers play guitar so we had s'mores and sang songs. i'm already looking forward to 2012! looking like jackson hole??














the kiddos spent hours building all kinds of neat sand structures....  it was fun to watch the beach change from day to day because of the tide.  we got LOTS of rocks and kelp on our beach.
