Pure 7 Studios Rosemary Beach Lifestyle Photography 30A Community Walton County

Pure 7 Studios is delighted to announce that Bombora Sun & Surf and The Rosemary Beach Cottage Rental Department has chosen us for a lifestyle photography shoot of one of the most exclusive communities along 30A: Rosemary Beach. At just over 100 acres, Rosemary Beach is truly a unique setting. Nestled along the picturesque coastline of Walton County, this microcosm of Paradise is home to those seeking a vacation from the common predicaments of modern day life. From biking along the narrow, tree-lined streets to dining in any number of award winning local eateries; from window shopping at one-of-a-kind boutiques to finding that perfect piece of art for your home back in the real world, every moment spent here is a reminder of why you came. You’ll encounter everyone from casually clad families in town for a week to well-dressed celebrities taking a welcome break from Hollywood and Broadway. The one thing that everyone seems to have in common, regardless of their background, is their mutual acknowledgement that Rosemary Beach is an escape into contentment.

Making Waves in the Fight Against Cancer

A Local Charity is Making Waves in the Fight Against Cancer

“As I was walking along the beach with my Lord… I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, One belonging to me and one to my Lord.”

Cancer leading cause of death waves of grace pure 7 studios photography charity fight

From the pristine waters of Miramar Beach, Florida to the pure white sands of Orange Beach, Alabama, something very special is transpiring. Small groups of charitable donors have joined hands to offer families dealing with a cancer diagnosis a much needed escape from their usual everyday routine. Waves of Grace, a non-profit organization, is providing patients who are undergoing cancer treatment, along with their families, an all-expenses-paid getaway to the tranquil beaches of the Gulf of Mexico in hopes that some sun and sand might help unburden them and offer some much needed healing.READ MORE

#Pure7Baby!

2016-08-30_0013

It is with excitement beyond belief that we present the maternity portraits of our very own Lindsey of the #pure7fam!  We’ve also included some of her handsome fiance, Josiah.  (Gotta give the daddies love, too!)  But back to the wonderful “Miss Lins”…

As lead associate photographer and portrait sales manager, Lindsey has been an integral part of the Pure7 team for the past 7 years, literally becoming part of our family.  Heck, she’s even helped raise our family and has even been the nanny to our kids while we were away!  Coming to work everyday, she’s been a staple in our business and family since our kids were babies.  Our daughter idolizes her like a cool, hip, older sister and our sons treat her like a big sister, too.  The kind that gives you loving discipline when needed and that you secretly love and adore (but would never admit to it)!

Waves of Grace| Ferris Owen Family Pictures

Most folks spend the day after Christmas relaxing with friends and family, grazing on leftovers and debating whether or not to start taking down the tree. The Owen family spent theirs elsewhere – not on the gorgeous beach you see in the adorable family pictures below, but in the emergency room in a state of shock.

To go from that setting to one of sugar sands and emerald waters in a span of six months is a gift that can only be fully appreciated by a family who survived the sudden storm of a cancer diagnosis. Thankfully, Waves of Grace was there to scoop them up and send them away for a week to catch their breath, to remember what it’s like to just be.

Family Portrait Session | McGuinness Clan

We had so much fun with this lively bunch at a recent family portrait beach session! When they met us at the studio a few days later to go through the photos, we seriously felt like our friends had come to hang out. The icing on the cake was the email we received later that afternoon:

“Thanks again for everything! We had so much fun shooting with Ryan and again today going through all the photos with you guys. Didn’t think I would cry but that’s how you know they’re good pics, right?”

Pure 7 Beach Family Portrait

We totally agreed! As we got to know them a little better, we understood why everyone was all smiles the entire week. A really big, wonderful thing was about to happen.
