Hi, I’m Tamara.

Wife, mother, daughter, aunt, sister, friend.   I make a mean Lasagne, and love love love a great coffee.  The sight and sounds of 80’s music and brat pack movies has this weird ability to completely alter my personality as if I’m channelling Pat Benatar or Ally Sheedy.   (Who, you ask?)  I’m strong  in my convictions  and won’t back down from a challenge, yet the mere distant sighting of a creepy looking spider can send me into a complete tailspin.  I have an uncanny knack of retaining random and obscure facts that makes me very popular at trivia nights, yet I can’t recall what I had for dinner last night, or where I put my watch, or “what did I come into this room for?”  I love to travel and explore new places, but I am in my element at home.

I live in a crazy busy, noisy house with four boys – one big one and 3 little ones.  Oh and the necessary four legged white fluffy female attempt at evening out the gender inbalance – Roxy.  I’ve heard that the definition of a “boy” is noise, with dirt on.   Well that’s my house to a “T”, but I love it, and wouldn’t change it for all the coffee in Italy.  My boys are loud, rambunctious, messy, and cheeky, but they are also polite, intelligent, affectionate, helpful, compassionate and thoughtful.  They drive me insane, but keep me sane.

With a background in finance that spanned 20 years, I decided a change was on the cards after the birth of my third child.   I have always dabbled in some form of “art” over my lifetime– painting, pottery, musical instruments, but it wasn’t until I picked up a camera that I had that light bulb moment.    And the rest, as they say, is history.   I love it.  I just love it.  There is nothing better than being able to capture *that* picture – you know, THAT picture?  The one where as soon as you see it, the corners of your mouth start to turn up – you can’t help it.  The one that you will look back on in 5 years, 15 years, 20 years and smile, and remember…..
