One tenth of a second. That’s the speed of a first impression; all the time it takes for someone to judge who they think you are. Right or wrong, fair or not, it is how you and your brand are judged; which is why nothing is more powerful than photography. The way you represent yourself visually is often the first impression that prospective clients use to determine the value of your brand. The right image can create a feeling of trust, tell a story, and strengthen your message. As a Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater visual marketing and personal branding expert, I create executive and business headshots, branding imagery, and corporate group headshots that will help your business market and promote your services to your target audience.
It's More Than Just A Headshot
It's connecting who you are with what you do.
Whether it be corporate or executive headshots, office photography, or product imagery, I work closely with you to ensure your images evoke the emotions you want aligned with your distinct brand to tell your story and your personal style. I have created headshots for physicians and medical professionals, attorneys, dentists, CPA’s, authors, fitness professionals, local and national celebrities, creative professionals, construction managers, insurance and real estate agents, and entrepreneurs to name a few.
(Yes...that is Usher! Ask me to tell you the story.)
The quality of your headshot and how you appear in it will directly impact how people perceive you before they even meet you, so don’t settle for a quick snapshot in poor lighting. A quality headshot is an invaluable investment in your brand and professional identity as it helps build trust and credibility.

Over the years that I have been photographing headshots for my clients, I continued to notice a similar frustration amongst these business professionals. They had shiny new headshots, but dated, boring, and non-mobile friendly websites to showcase their new looks. So I created Andi Diamond Designs to address this issue. My custom websites are on-line branded solutions that are mobile-friendly, SEO optimized, and look amazing on any device. My clean, modern designs showcase your business in a manner that you can feel proud of. Ask me about packages that include website design and headshot photography.
It is my job as your headshot photographer to coach you to reveal your very best look that conveys the authentic, confident and approachable version of yourself. I have been told that my personality makes it easy for my clients to feel extremely comfortable in front of my camera and to give me genuine expressions. I feel that in getting to really know you, I am able to truly see who you are and what your exact needs are. I tend to share a lot about myself as well, so you don’t feel as vulnerable on the other end of the camera, and we usually finish our session with hugs (don’t worry- I won’t force you to hug me if you are not a hugger!)
A bit about me, that really has nothing to do with headshot photography, but will give you a bit of insight into who I am:
I went to undergrad at the University of Florida and bleed orange and blue (I happily photograph Seminoles, too). I went to grad school at the University of South Florida.
The outtakes of movies and TV shows are usually my favorite parts. The behind-the-scenes footage is a fave as well.
I recently photographed the College National Championship- it was the experience of a lifetime.
I would give my left arm to see Jimmy Fallon live. He is my celebrity crush (my husband knows this, and has accepted this).
U2 is still my favorite band of all time. Always will be.
My husband and our 2 kids are my life’s biggest blessing.
