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 don’t shoot a ton of extended family sessions, because… well, they’re scary! But I’m so glad this one worked out. Mr. and Mrs. Lucas gathered their daughters, sons-in-law, and some of the cutest kids in town in their beautiful back yard for what turned out to be one of my favorite sessions ever. I love that you never know what’s going to happen when you work with kids… and this crowd did not disappoint!
Fall has finally made it’s way down to Florida! That means we can cover our arms and legs. Just not at the same time.
Don’t want to get too crazy… or sweaty!
Yay for purple (and every other color) tights. :)
Strange title, huh? :)
I’ve worked with this family for several years, and when they told me they wanted to take pictures at church I was like, “Well… okay!”
Here’s the back-story: The Mocks are moving (actually they already have – it happened FAST), and we had planned to do their annual family photo session at home. But Tara told me there was just no way it would work out unless we did the pictures in front of the walls of boxes all over their house. Totally understandable! But she had an idea. She said the one thing the whole family would miss most about Jacksonville was their/our church. Then she asked if I would follow them around on their last Sunday and document “A Day at Chets” for the Mock family. I was immediately in, even though I wasn’t sure how it would work out. I love a good weird/bizarre/different/creative idea! So we met up in the Green Room (Tara is a musician and was on the worship team), and I followed the Mocks around the Chets campus. We found some of their favorite people and made them smile for the camera, went with the kids to say goodbye to their friends in KidWorship, and even got a few shots of Tara playing with the band for the last time.
Okay, writing this out made me feel a little sad. Tara, I hope these pictures make all of you smile when they think about your time here in Jacksonville.
You are already missed!!!
Please note the cray cray photo bomber above. She might be married to the man who delivered my child. :)
We just had our first corn maze experience. Kingston’s favorite part of the whole day was playing in the giant tubs of corn kernels. My favorite part was when Anderson called it pop corn. He thought it was the same thing! City boy. I don’t know, but the place just wasn’t what I thought it was going to be. Not sure what I was expecting… and maybe it’s because I grew up in a rural area, but the whole “spend a day in the country” thing just didn’t do it for me. And there were huge lines for everything! A really long (Disney-size) line to get in, another one for food (that they ran out of!), and another one that led to a hay ride that drove out to the actual corn maze. What the heck?! It was crazy. The little guy did have a great time, but next time we want to pet some chickens and roll in corn, we’re just going to Uncle Don’s (my brother) house. :)
Ladies and Gentlemen, there’s a Donut Bandit on the loose!
Kingston doesn’t really like the whole Halloween costume thing. Here’s proof from his 1st Halloween when I dressed him up like The King. I mean who doesn’t like blue suede shoes? Crazy kid! Last year I let him wear regular clothes and ride around on his motorcycle. We called him a biker, but whatever. He was so much happier. We asked him all month what he wanted to be for Halloween, and he said, “I don’t understand it!” (The kid repeats EVERYTHING he hears.) So I decided to go with the flow and just put a mask on him. He loves donuts, so it’s funny to us. :) He keeps saying, “Give me all your donuts!”
