the nelsons

Tamra is the closest thing I have to a sister.  We were extremely close growing up as cousins.  My family lived with hers when I was very young, and although it was a short stay, I'm sure I had the time of my life.  We went to Disneyland together several times, once when we were really little, and again in sixth grade when I was afraid my bangs were going to get messed up on Splash Mountain.  I've had the opportunity to photograph her family several times over the years, but this time, Tamara really wanted to get some photos in front of the church where she and Josh got married.  The photos reflect exactly the kind of family they are; so full of joy they can hardly contain themselves.  And I love them dearly.
