Enjoying some sweet summer treats with photographer Hallie Kathryn!

“This was the first time I had seen my best friend, Juliette, since winter break!  We tried the new crepe spot in town and then got ice cream from the best place!!  This was Juliette’s first day of summer vacation, and even though it wasn’t very sunny, we wanted to make it feel like a fun summer afternoon!” -Hallie

A Summer’s Day with photographer Patrick Gray!!!

“I chose my models Jillian and Marissa because they are the cutest pair of friends you will ever see.  They have the absolute best time whenever I shoot them together.  I was mostly thinking about getting the right kinds of shots, that would show off the bracelets vibrant colors to the fullest.  Also, I wanted to capture images that made people want to purchase the product rather than just focusing on the quality of the picture.  I wanted a warmth to the shoot that focused on having a great time with your friend, while also adding in great summer vibes everyone is craving.  If I would have to name the shoot it would be something along the lines of, “A Summer’s Day”.  The shoot was nothing glamorous, but instead a casual yet cute take on an average summer day with your best friend.  I’ve always loved this backyard because of the large space and variety of places there are to shoot.  From the rose garden, to the copper tiled pool, there are bright colors everywhere that scream summer and good times.” -Patrick

Photographer: Sara Gatlin

Insta: @sgat“For this shoot I really wanted to showcase the carefree and happy energy Pura Vida gives off.  When I looked for a model, I wanted to work with someone who could be silly and just let loose and Avery was perfect!  The theme I was going for is more of a vibe.  I just wanted to depict those Summer days, where you are hanging with your friends, going on adventures, taking silly photos, drinking sodas, etc.!  I think the location of a photoshoot is one of the main factors that contribute to the vibe you’re going for, which is why I chose to shoot in Midtown.  Midtown is known for it’s artist and “march-to-the-beat-of-your-own-drum” atmosphere, so I immediately knew it would be perfect for shooting with Pura Vida!” – Sara Gatlin
