Let Me Introduce Myself…the Person Behind Tamarie Photography


Talking about myself has never been a forte of mine. I’d MUCH rather brag about my amazing friends and family. Haha. But being new to the St Petersburg/Tampa Bay area, I figured there was no time like the present to introduce myself, the person behind the camera, to all the new friendly faces that are just now stumbling upon my page that showcases my work passion. I also got a friendly little nudge from a bunch of ladies I like to call my Tampa Shutter Sisters as part of a monthly blogging challenge, so here I am. 😉 If you haven’t check it out already, be sure to head over to my MEET TAMI page and my THINGS THAT MAKE ME SWOON pages for some more fun facts about me!

My business name is a combination of my first and middle name (Tamarie), but if you want to catch my attention call me Tami. Or stick a craft cocktail (like an Old Fashion) and some pomme frites in front of me and you’re my new best friend! 😉

I find I am a person that thrives on growth and change, verses a life that is “comfortable” and in my opinion also possibly “stagnant”. I’ve overcome some big obstacles….divorce, leaving a job/career that wasn’t quite my niche, and moving across the country and all have made me the person I am today. I wouldn’t change a thing.

I’m a woman obsessed in becoming comfortable in her own skin”

This is a true sentiment, and yes, yes I do, also love to pin cheesy quotes/sayings on Pinterest. I think I’m getting close to 1300 of them, and almost 6000 pins in total.  Go follow me on Pinterest HERE to see more of them.

My favorite part of my day currently is getting up early to go for a run and to watch the sun rise over the Tampa Bay right near my new home.

You will likely find me also taking a quick break  on these runs to snap an iPhone photo of it so I can Instagram it later…have I told you I’m a bit obsessed with Instagram?! Please go follow me HERE!

I also have a severe case of wanderlust! I love traveling! If you want to check out some of my travels, head over to HERE to link up to some of them. You will quite often find me doing a lot of silly jumps in my photos like the one below because, why not? Haha.  P.S., I almost got kicked out of Machu Picchu because of the jump in this photo…oops! 😉

Machu Picchu, Travel, Jumping

And while I soooo wish my natural hair color was red, it sadly is not. I’m a natural blonde. But I love that everyone thinks I’m a ginger.  😉

But I guess the biggest thing you should know about me is that I absolutely LOVE my job! I am so incredibly grateful and feel like I need to pinch myself everyday for how lucky I am to get to do something I love. 🙂

So hopefully now that you know a little more about me, I can get the chance to learn more about you and your loved ones at a future portrait session.
