I’m so glad you found me!
My name is Tamara (like “see ya, tomorra”) and I am the publisher, content creator, actor, Mama and StepMama behind these pages.
Lights,Camera,Family! was born at the urging of friends who were fascinated by the modern blended family life we lead. What started off as a place to write down personal thoughts has turned into just a bit more!
Here on the blog, I’ll share favorite goodies I come across, local Raleigh and Triangle spotlights, the adventures and travels that bond us, and sometimes a few insights on parenting, stepparenting and co-parenting that I gain along the way.
You could say I’ll share a little “blend” of everything-because we all lead a “blended life” in one way or another. See how I did that? 😉
My actor husband, Steven and I have four children together and with 6 people in the house, every day seems to be an adventure in cooperation, carpooling, and lots of unpaired socks. I like to say we lead a life full of drama, chaos and lots of love. I hope you can always find a little of each on these pages.
About ME: my husband calls me Tea, because well….tea might just be my 10 cup a day addiction. I’m the control panel in our household and hear the words “Mama? Mama!” a zillion times a day. My husband says I have the patience of a saint. I love the theatre and feel most at home in a dark one.
About THE HUBBY-my amazingly talented actor, writer, director, coach husband. Besides being crazy talented at his day job, he’s also the toilet unclogger, bug “rescuer”, picker upper of all things heavy and reacher-upper of all things high. I couldn’t do life without him. He’s the best scene partner ever.
