As you all know, COVID-19 has taken a toll on all of us. The pandemic has especially taken a toll on charity and fund raising events. I wanted think of creative way to raise funds for the Children’s Cancer Center. So, not too long ago, I decided to put my match making skills to the test. I launched my first ever Stranger Portrait session. I thought, “I love match making and I also love the Children’s Cancer Center. So, why not put them together!” The idea was that you fill out the application, following an application fee of any amount donated to the CCC. How fun is that!

I wish I could’ve matched everyone who applied but I was happy to find at least one potential match among the many wonderful applicants. Brian and Alison we’re my two guinea pigs for this session. They were definitely nervous moments leading up to meeting each other, but once they got warmed it was a fun time! My match making skills didn’t hit the target this time but we still had fun, laughed, and helped contribute to a wonderful organization.

When it was all said and done the ADP Community was able to raise close to $1,000 for the Children’s Cancer Center. I am so thankful for everyone who took the chance and applied for this unique and silly session. It was a fun evening and I greatly appreciate everyone who donated and who took a chance on love for this cause! I am looking forward to doing this again.

Also, it’s never too late! If you find it in your heart to support this amazing organization please donate to the Children’s Cancer Center.

I jokingly nicknamed this boudoir session “The Cindy Crawford At Home Collection”. What a beautiful Diamond Girl just looking effortlessly flawless sitting all cozy in her chunky sweater and leggings (don’t we all just sit around looking this fabulous?!)

I loved “K’s” cozy and relaxed looks. It was also a great time being able to shoot in such a unique space- her family’s log cabin in Colorado- that challenged my creativity as an artist which is always fun!

Due to covid-19 this Diamond Girl had to pivot from her dream like beach front Florida wedding and relocate her wedding to her family’s log cabin in Cripple Creek, Colorado. We were able to squeeze in a quick bridal boudoir shoot the day before her wedding and I am so glad we did. This colorado setting was so unique to my usual boudoir style and it was so much fun to shoot. Thank you to “K” for trusting me to photograph your wedding weekend! I had a such a fun time celebrating you and your groom:)

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.

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. The Children’s Cancer Center has been a charity that Pete and I have been involved with with many years and we absolutely love what they do for children in our community with cancer and blood disorders. As with most charities, donations have been a much bigger struggle this year- but I know how amazing the ADP community is so I am rallying your support!

For the month of September I will gifting a $395 personal branding and headshot session/photo shoot in exchange for a $99 donation (made through me) towards the Children’s Cancer Center. Those who book their session in the month of September will be receiving complimentary a strategy call, professional hair and make-up, and an in-person reveal session at my South Tampa studio. If you’re interested in this GIVE/GET contact me through phone or email to chat details.

If you’re not in need of head shots and personal branding images, please still consider donating to this amazing organization.

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 TGIFarming. 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??
