This is what winter looks like in Florida, and I love it! Isn’t wonderful that family portrait sessions can happen all year round in the sunshine state. You can always count on Florida to give you a nice background and lovely weather (most days). You can practically have a session anywhere! The Parsons and I enjoyed a lovely evening by a quiet pond for their family portrait session. I was able to capture so many great moments. These moments included warm hugs, tickles, kisses, and shoulder rides! Nature was on our side that evening and everything came together beautifully. Once we arrived at location, I knew immediately that I had to capture the gorgeous dusk lighting behind the tree line. I love how the evergreen terrain pops in the background for this shoot. It gave a vibrant touch for these family portraits. If you are looking for that Florida feel without having to go to the beach, this session is a great example of what that looks like. My goal was to make sure the Parsons had a great time together at their family session. From the looks of their photos, I think that I achieved that goal. I know it can be stressful trying to check everything off your to-do list around the holiday season. If a Family portrait session is one of those things on your list, I would be glad to help you check it off your list, stress free! Family Portrait sessions are about capturing happy moments for your family. So, I do everything I can to make sure your session is something enjoyable and easy going. Don’t miss out! Freeze your family in this moment in time with help from Andi Diamond Photography.
I had such a great time shooting a family session for Becky and Drew. This was a three generation portrait session and the images came out perfect! It is so special to see three generations all together. Becky and Drew truly have a beautiful family. The joy in these photos jumps right off the images and into our hearts. I am always excited to capture sweet memories like the ones from this shoot. If you have not booked your family session for the holiday season yet, let’s chat! Freeze your family in a moment in time and schedule your family portrait session with Andi Diamond Photography.
Also, Happy Thanksgiving from Andi Diamond Photography! I am wishing everyone a happy and healthy thanksgiving. For many of us Thanksgiving will be looking a little different this year. Now more than ever, it is important that we can take a moment to appreciate who and what we have in our lives. This year has been a whirlwind for everyone, and if it wasn’t for family, I am sure it would have been a lot more difficult. May you be surrounded by your loved ones this Thanksgiving (whether it’s from a distance or through a screen). Family is forever. I am happy to say that I am thankful for my ADP family.
I got to spend the afternoon with the lovely Elinsky family and meet their newest addition! He is such cute little bundle of joy and I can tell that he will be getting a lot of love… especially from his canine siblings. This little man was not camera shy and gave us some heart melting smiles. The fur babies were incredibly excited to have a new baby human brother. I am always honored to capture such precious moment like these.
The holidays will be here before you know it. Don’t forget to book your family session for the holidays so you too can capture some special moments with your family. Contact Andi Diamond Photography by phone or email to book your family portrait session.
The thing I love most about personal branding sessions is seeing my client’s take their passion and turn it into a business. Earlier this week I got to meet with Krista and create the first branding images of her up and coming business TGIFresh. If you follow the link here you will see the Facebook live Krista and I did shortly after her session. During the live she described what she is striving for with her new business — healthy eating and helping others turn their backyards into their new produce aisle. Krista grows her own food- right in her backyard….and she is teaching ME how to do it (and she can teach YOU, too!).
We did her shoot in her beautiful Davis Island home garden. The wonderful Michele Renee The Studio did her hair and makeup. We also did a family portrait session. The sunset was absolutely beautiful that evening and I was able to get some stunning shots of this beautiful family.
This Diamond Girl is so inspiring! She makes it look so EASY and I know it truly is so healthy. Who wants to hop on the green garden train with me??
Shortly after the storm of COVID-19 came to be, I heard about a photographer out of Massachusetts doing something called #thefrontstepsproject. It was such an amazing and uplifting idea it inspired me and many other photographers to jump start this project in our communities. I had an overwhelming response from over 100 families who wanted to participate in the #thefrontstepsproject. In exchange for a 5 minute family portrait session, I asked the families to make a donation to Feeding Tampa Bay or the American Red Cross. I brought my long lens camera with me so I could easily maintain a safe distance. Most of the time I was taking shots from the street, inside my car! I encouraged families to get creative with props and posters and they did not disappoint! From rolls of toilet paper and cleaning supplies to posters of thank yous to our health care workers, each family portrait was so special.
The Tampa community is so wonderful! I’m so glad I was able to capture an uplifting moment in time for these families. Smiling and showing love during times of stress….from 15 feet away… made such a difference and I’m glad I could be apart of it. #thefrontstepsproject was togetherness at its finest. Thanks to all the families for your donations to the American Red Cross and Feeding Tampa Bay!
