At Pure7, we value community.  As a family-owned and operated business, we take pride in serving other families and capturing life’s special moments for them to cherish.  Family portraits are the heart of what we offer – after all, the birth of our first child was what birthed Ryan’s love of photography! 

In the spirit of community, every year we dedicate some time to Pure7 Gives Back, our way of helping those in need of a helping hand.  We are passionate about being of service to others facing major hardships.  One way we contribute is by providing some of these families with a free photo session.  

In early May of this year, a raging wildfire destroyed the homes of dozens of Santa Rosa Beach and Walton County residents.  Many of them lost everything, including precious family keepsakes.  Do you know a family who was affected by the fires? Could they be lifted up by an experience like this? You can nominate a family by sending their story and contact information to us at

Sometimes, we offer our Pure7 Gives Back sessions to a family who is going through a major financial crisis, or sometimes a family facing a terminal illness. While their challenges and circumstances vary, the love and joy that radiates through each of these families is incredible to witness, and it always shines through in their photos.

It can be hard to know what to say or offer to another family facing a significant hardship.  For these families in their times of suffering, capturing precious moments through family photographs can be incredibly meaningful. Memories are to be treasured, and it is our hope that these memories will be held close and cherished for years to come.

We want to offer our services to families who could be uplifted by an experience like this, at no cost. We need your help though! Please send their story and contact information to We would love to get in contact with them and offer them a free family session.
