Hi! I’m Lyndsay Almeida, a lifestyle photographer based in sunny North Florida. My blog is full of photoshoots, crafty projects, outfit posts, photography tips, and rambles about my family and faith.
If we're going to be blog friends here are a few more things you should know:
I love Jesus Christ and strive to live a life that honors Him. My husband, Anderson, and I have the cutest little boy (Kingston Rock) in the world. It's true. There was a scientific study, and he won. I adore our little family!
I started Pink Coffee Photo five years ago; and as you can see, bright colors (and coffee) make me a happy girl!
Thrift stores are my favorite places to shop, and most of my "down time" is spent making crafty DIY projects.
Check out some of my favorite post categories on the right.
I love the idea of Small Business Saturday! Anyone who runs a small company knows it can be brutal, so the idea of a whole day dedicated to celebrating and supporting them makes me happy! One of the spots we hit on Small Business Saturday was Angie’s Subs in our own neighborhood. It’s one of the quirkiest, weirdest places around. The decorations are really bizarre, the food is really good, and we really like it. :)
Okay, let’s be honest for a minute.
Do you carry your big ‘ole DSLR camera around in your purse?
I do. All the time.
I know. It’s terrible. Especially with all the random stuff that ends up in my purse.
I’ve had a great lens bag for about 4 years that I always take to photo-shoots. But I really like to take my camera with me everywhere, and the lens bag just wasn’t practical for that. I wasn’t going to drag my kid, purse, diaper bag, AND a lens bag out to the beach or a family dinner. So my solution was to just throw the camera in my purse. (Don’t do this y’all. It’s bad for your camera!)
Then Epiphanie Bags sent me the perfect camera bag. Seriously. I love it! I picked the Lyric Bag in Mustard, because… it’s mustard! And I consider mustard a neutral. :) It also has a gorgeous braided strap. Now I can throw my wallet in this bag with my camera, and I’m ready to go out with my family. And I don’t look like a crazy paparazzi mom carrying my big dorky lens bag, because this just looks like my purse.
I love the bag so much that I’m giving away a $50 gift certificate to Epiphanie Bags! Put it towards the perfect Christmas present for the photographer in your life… or just treat yourself to one. :) There are several ways to enter below!
These cute Alabama transplants were so much fun to work with. They laughed the whole time and obviously enjoyed being together. It was refreshing!!
At one point they said, “Well, we ARE newlyweds!”
David and Danza, I hope you always make each other laugh just like newlyweds. :)
We usually spend Thanksgiving at my parents’ house with my brother and his family. It’s really relaxed but completely chaotic at the same time. After lunch we always try to get a family picture for Mom and Dad’s Christmas card. I swear it’s like herding a bunch of deranged cats. And in the end there are 756 out-takes and one half-way decent picture where no one is picking a booger or wedgie. We consider that a success.
I don’t usually contribute much to big family dinners. I’m willing but not exactly eager so… the Almeidas usually do drinks, breads, appetizers. You know. The really important stuff. But this year my Mom must have been desperate, because she asked me to do desserts. So I decided to just jump in and attempt Momofuku Milk Bar’s Crack Pie! Remember when Anderson and I went on and on and on about it in NYC? I was looking at having one shipped here, but realized it would cost $80. Bummer! But then I came across the recipe online and decided to be a big girl and try to make it. And it turned out just like the real deal. You should try it for Christmas dinner. Your family will thank you, and you’ll thank me. Here’s the recipe. Also made my old standby, Butter Cake. :)
