I LOVE helping women (and men, small businesses) SHINE when it comes to personal branding!

Right or wrong, people make a judgement about you and your business within just a few seconds of looking at your headshots/images on your website, print collateral, and social media. I truly enjoy helping my clients to put their best foot forward and make sure that first impression is a positive one!

Dr. Dipti Patel is a South Tampa chiropractor who runs her own practice. After creating her headshots/personal branding images and behind-the-scenes video/interviews with her patients, I can see why they love her so much! Make sure to give her a shout at the Tampa Injury and Wellness Center if you are in need!

Thank you Larissa Scott and ABC Action News – WFTS – Tampa Bay for featuring my story and #Portraits4Progress! This project has truly taken flight and I hope it helps us all examine our own prejudices while supporting our black community. 

As positive as I feel this project is, of course I had one negative nelly write to me to complain asking why I did not include police officers. Yes, of course I invited police officers to participate. 100% of our police force was on duty, busy protecting our community- and I thank them for their service. I’m thankful for those who were able to participate- from all ethnicities, backgrounds, beliefs, and walks of life.

ADP’s message is being spread even further through out the Tampa Bay community. Thank you to WFLA8 and Meredyth Censullo for covering this project. I couldn’t be more happier with the feature. I created this project to allow others’ messages to be seen and thanks to WFLA8 now their messages can travel even farther. Thank you to everyone for your support and sharing this important project.

My heart was (and still is) so heavy amidst the events of George Floyd’s death. I wanted to do something but getting caught in a peaceful protest that is sabotaged into a violent one was a risk that I was not able to take. For the sake of my children, I could put my safety at risk. The #Portraits4Progress was my idea on what I can do as a photographer to show my support for my black community, help bring about positive change, and how I can creatively make a difference, and encourage you to be seen and your messages heard. Like most ideas I have, I tend to jump first and figure out logistics later….and hope that my idea grows wings and takes flight — and that is exactly what it did. Within 48 hours every session was booked! The response with everyone’s desire to participate was heartwarming. It gave me hope.

By the 2nd and final day of #Portraits4Progress my heart was overflowing. Over 65 individuals/families took part in our movement to help show our support of our black community by sharing our messages of frustration, anger, love, fear, and hope. It was an honor to help communicate your messages. 

To those who participated: Thank you for trusting me to creatively and respectfully share your voices, your memos, and your words of hurt, fear, anger, and love with regards to our black community. I appreciate you sharing your time, your families, and your heart to support this project. I found myself very tearful in reading your powerful messages. I loved the dialogue that we were able to have, and yes…..racism is still very alive and well. We can change the dialog, we can change the behaviors. One of my hopes is that this project opens peoples’ eyes to the things that we are often blinded to. It was truly a pleasure doing this project and I hope it moves everyone as much it has moved me.

This is the #Portraits4Progress Project.

A photographic movement created by Andi Diamond Photography in Tampa, FL to allow people an opportunity to creatively share their messages of sadness, fear, hope, encouragement, anger, and love in support of our black community.

My last shoot for #Portraits4Progress was with this amazing couple, who drove almost 3 hours to come to my studio in South Tampa to participate.
