“Happy Birthday to Justin Bieber!” & Fun Destin Senior Portraits by Pure 7 Studios!



NEWSFLASH!  In case you were living under a rock or didn’t login to the internet or turn on the telivision this past week, we are here to share the big news that is March 1!  Today we celebrate the birth of the one and only teen heart throb sensation Justin Bieber who takes the leap to the 18th year of his life!  Can you belieb it?!

Why is Pure 7 Studios so excited about this?  Well
a) Because we’re guilty.  Erica & Lindsey have the Bieber fever that roots back to the love of Usher and his sweet moves in the 90’s and more importantly…
b)  Our youngest son, Paxton, looks so much like JB that he’s been dubbed “baby bieber” (see below for proof)!
c)  the age 18 signifies the thought of SENIOR PORTRAITS!  One of our FAVORITE things to photograph!

Do you have a senior in your home?   Don’t fall for the cheesy black cape with pearls standard nonsense.  It’s 2012!  Pure 7 Studios offers many fun options and shooting locations that make our senior portrait sessions in Destin FL and the surrounding areas nothing but FUN.

Side note – Justin Bieber fun facts!
– Justin Bieber was discovered on YouTube
– Justin Bieber is worth $53 million
– His favorite color is purple
– He has a massive crush on Beyonce
– A lock of his hair sold for $40,668 on eBay

We’ll end on this heart felt, hair swingin’ note ~
Justin Bieber is giving up his birthday for charity: water.  Instead of gifts for his 18th birthday, he’s asking all his fans to donate $18 to help give people access to clean, safe drinking water (click here to donate).   Join Justin, and give up your next birthday for clean water!

a family reunion…..

for the first time, we had the opportunity to photograph a family reunion get together in Seagrove Beach Florida.  luckily the rain had left us with a beautiful winter day for some frolicking on the beach before they gathered for dinner.  this was a beautiful family full of adorable, lively children (and adults, too).  they were such a joy!  hopefully we can be a part of their annual get together!

december in pittsburgh……

we rarely post personal stuff, but when we got this batch developed from our lab from our trip to pittsburgh for xmas, we couldn’t help but share.  our kids had a blast and we can’t wait to return to photograph a pittsburgh wedding!

family faves 2011….

better late than never i say. i know the whole “best of 2011/year in review” stuff is usually around the first of the year. well, in case you have not figured it out we like to do things a little different around here. these pictures are some of my favorite from the past year. Some are Destin Wedding Photography sessions others are miscellaneous.  we are now gearing up for a crazy busy spring/summer. we look forward to all our new families and excited to see the families come back from years past.


ryan’s wedding faves from 2011……

so this post is about three weeks too late, but hey we don’t like to be like everyone else. here is a collection of photos we shot in 2011 that i think shows what we are all about. we had such a blast this past year and are looking for an even greater one this year. thank you to all our brides for choosing pure7. we truly love each and everyone of you.



my princess is growing up……

where has my little baby gone? no longer are the days of me rocking my little girl to sleep, but here are the days of my 6 year old saying “daddy you are the best dad i’ve ever had.” having a little girl has changed my life in so many ways. her birth is half the reason i even got into photography. i look forward to every day with her. . .seeing her change into the beautiful young lady she is becoming.
