Getting Family Beach Photos Like the Guthries |Seaside

We met up with the Guthrie’s in Seaside and had a wonderful session staring into the biggest baby blues we’ve ever seen! Their oldest daughter won the gene pool lottery with her big blue eyes; which isn’t surprising once you see her mom and dad. Today we’re excited to share their family beach photos and promise even if you don’t have baby blues of your own, getting family beach photos like the Guthries isn’t impossible. All you have to do is be yourself – Ryan and Lindsey will take care of the rest.

As fall sets in and is starting to actually feel like fall, we realized the holidays are just around the corner. It will be time to send out Christmas cards before you know it. We love Christmas cards with pictures best and not just because we’re photographers. Here at Pure7 we just really feel like family is everything. Whether it’s the one you’re born into or a family of friends you chose, the holidays are a special time of year.  Loved ones gather together to create new memories while keeping up with old traditions. Getting to show what another year together looks like just can’t be beat.

That’s why we drive all along 30A to places like Rosemary Beach or Seaside. It’s there we get to take family beach photos, wedding photos, and even newborn photos. Any one of our sessions can end up on a Christmas card and as the years have gone by it’s been fun to see which photos our Pure7 families choose.

Which photo do you think the Guthries should choose?

























If you want family photos before the holidays to put in a Christmas card or if you want family photos when the family is all together at Christmas time; let us know.

Engagement Photos in Seaside| Angie + Michael

Whoever decided a save the date or wedding invitation should include a photo of the couple was just plain smart. One simple action and the engagement photo industry was born. We have no idea when it started, but we’re happy the tradition is here to stay. It allows us to work with one-of-a-kind couples like Angie and Michael. They prove engagement sessions are just fun.

We love shooting these sessions because most of the time it’s the first professional photos taken as a couple.  One person is often more camera shy, but their partner in crime always comes to the rescue. Plus, the tight wedding day schedule doesn’t apply to engagement photos. These special sessions happen naturally. Couples get to focus more on each other and really let loose. They can pick anywhere and wear anything.

Angie and Michael chose Seaside, FL which is where they’ll be wed this October! The small beach town offered them worthy backdrops. We worked our way through town finding the beach and the best signs and streets in town. Better than the background, is Angie’s smile that just makes Michael light up. They are clearly playing for keeps! We can’t wait to photograph their Seaside wedding, which will be coordinated by the amazing Christie of It’s A Shore Thing – so stay tuned for this couple’s gorgeous wedding images this Fall/Winter!

Last week, we featured Jennifer & Jimmy’s Rosemary Beach wedding as our first blog post of the year (view here). In that post, we referenced their 30A engagement portraits which can be seen below! They were just too good not to share and we hope you enjoy. This couple used their engagement session photos to have us create a beautiful custom Guestbook Album and it turned out so beautiful.

Family Beach Portraits Seaside FL | Photography

Family Beach Portraits Seaside FL








































Ryan absolutely loved meeting and photographing this beautiful family during their vacation in Seaside, FL.  We always love to hear what makes vacationing on our Emerald Coast so special to each family we meet, and here is what they had to say of their stay:

“We typically vacation at a new place every year – not usually big on repeats.  We went to Destin last year and literally decided to put our home on the market during our trip.  It sold in like 3 days!  So, my husband did paperwork the whole time and didn’t get to really enjoy it, so that’s why we went again this year.  We heard so many things about Seaside and decided to check it out.  We all LOVED it so much, we’ve already talked about going again next year.”

As you can see from their below family portraits, these adorable siblings just adore one another . . . as do their parents!  During our family beach portrait sessions, our photographers love capturing the family unit as a whole, and also the relationship between siblings as well as mommy & daddy.  The kids may cringe looking at “romantic” pictures of their parents now, but one day these images will surely hold a very special place in this family’s legacy.  At their purchasing appointment in our studio, they loved the images so much that we’re currently in production of four gallery-wrapped canvases and a gorgeous 10×10 heirloom portrait album with 40 portraits.  Mama had this to say of their experience:

“Our family had an instant connection and comfort level with Ryan.  His amazing work will provide picture-perfect memories of our family’s vacation for years to come.  We also appreciated the personal, low-key, no pressure service provided by Pure 7 Studios.”

We are so humbled and grateful that this family (and countless others) chose us to capture these priceless times in their family history.  Wishing all of our beloved clients a safe, blessed, and beautiful Labor Day Weekend!  ~Erica

Natalie + Parker’s Engagement Photography Session | Seaside Florida

Though glaringly obvious at first glance, Natalie and Parker are beautiful people.  But there’s really something special about this awesome couple – they’re just as beautiful inside as they are on the outside.  From our first conversation with Natalie, we knew right away we’d all become fast friends – and that we did!

Natalie and Parker were planning a Seaside wedding so Ryan decided to mix it up a bit and head over to Draper Lake for the start of their engagement Photography session.  Draper Lake is one of 30A’s many hidden gems, as its coastal dune lake surrounded by oak and pine trees provides a slight change of scenery from our equally as gorgeous white-sand beaches.   But no 30A engagement session would be complete without a trip to the beach, so they headed to nearby Ed Walline Beach to take advantage of the perfect mix of gorgeous light + gorgeous people, resulting in gorgeous-gorgeous engagement photos!   Alan also joined them to capture one of his signature Coalesce Sessions – and we love this highlights reel!  Stay tuned for the full film in which Natalie and Parker were interviewed about each other – such a fun session and truly captures just how in love and awesome this couple really is!
