Tamara Like Camera

I am a professional photographer, a mama of two, a writer/blogger at http://tamaralikecamera.blogspot.com and a nearly professional cookie taster. I've been known to be all four of those things at all hours of the day and night. After two cross country moves, due to my intense Bi-Coastal Disorder, I live with my husband, daughter, son, rescue dog, and rescue cat in glorious western Massachusetts. We like it here and we aren't going anywhere, but we dream about northern lights, moose and whales always. I also like puppies, lattes and rainbows an awful lot. I blog about all things quirky lifestyle, with special attention to parenting, recipes, pets, photography, and DIY.
