Hi! I’m Rachel, your Rosemary Beach Photographer..

Lover of coffee, a good chocolate chip cookie, and all things beach, I’m Rachel, owner of Ultimate, and your Rosemary Beach Family photographer.

I totally and completely understand the stress of family photos. [hello mom of a 3 year old boy]

Vacation shouldn’t have to be work.

That’s why I provide easy going, professional, and fun family beach portrait sessions in Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, Inlet Beach, Watercolor, Seaside, Seacrest Beach, Dune Allen, Blue Mountain Beach, and other 30A communities.

Text me for an immediate response on availability or fill out the form below and I’ll be in touch.

About our Rosemary Beach Photography sessions

As of mom of 2, I know how stressful planning family portraits can be. And with my youngest, Leo, being 3, I totalllly understand that ‘vacation is work’ when traveling with little ones. IYKYK

I use prompt based photography so you have a fun, easy going, and stress free portrait session.

”Want to race your sister??…..Can you stand on my X in the sand…Tickle mommy!, ewww daddy’s breath is stinky” [cue cute giggles] <3

My sessions have been designed to be as short as possible (for the toddlers and husbands) but they maximize the best beach light, giving you beautiful portraits and a happy family. I only take a limited amount of bookings per week to give clients fallback days for rain, so reach out asap so we can get you on my calendar! I would love to be your Rosemary Beach Family Photographer!

Rachel was incredible to work with! From the moment we got in contact she was highly communicative, organized, and took the time to get to know our family!! She even helped plan our outfits in advance! During our photo session she made everyone feel comfortable and did a great job working with our two little boys! Our family photos came out perfect and we are now enjoying them in our home! Next time we visit Seaside & need photos we will definitely work with Rachel again! 🙂

We chose Rachel and Ultimate Production Company for our family photos and my twins’ Senior photo sessions. We are from out of town, so I chose Rachel from other Google and Facebook recommendations. I could not have been more pleased with how they turned out! First, Rachel is such a pleasure to work with. She is so friendly and made us feel at ease right away. We thoroughly enjoyed our entire session-it was like hanging out with a friend! Then I received our pictures, and I was just floored! They were nothing short of amazing! We have had many family photos over the years, but these are by far the best ever. And I can’t say enough about my kids’ senior photos-she captured their personalities perfectly! I will treasure these photos always. I cannot recommend Rachel enough!!

The Booking Process

Session Day

On the day of your session we will keep a watch on the weather to make sure the session time will not need to be adjusted. We check in with you around lunch to confirm the time and location. We set the session time strictly around sunset to ensure you have the best light.

If there is over 50% cloud cover for the day, we may start about 15 mins early. If there is 0% cloud cover, we may need to start a few minutes later. Something to remember, we photograph your family into the “sunset” time and about 15 mins after sunset. This is when you have the beautiful, soft light you see in our portfolio.

You will receive an email with your Online Gallery within 2 weeks of your session date. This link will never expire and you will have access to view/download your images. If you have plans to display your images via wall art or an album, I have a program that will show us accurate sizing on your own walls. This is a complimentary service I offer to my clients. If you would like more info, please specify that on your questionnaire.

Rosemary Beach

Rosemary beach is one of our favorite communities in 30a. The downtown is vibrant with a unique charm that everyone is sure to love. Photography in Rosemary Beach requires pre-approval and you must be staying in a Rosemary Beach Cottage Rental Agency rental or have ownership in the community. Don’t worry, we have a Walton County Vendor permit and know the necessary steps to take to be approved for your family photography in Rosemary Beach. We are proudly on the exclusive vendor list as a Rosemary Beach Family Photographer & Rosemary Beach Wedding Photographer.

Alys Beach

Alys Beach is also a breathtaking community in 30a. The Mediterranean influenced architecture, white washed walls, and lush greenery surrounds you in this community.

Alys Beach also requires pre-approval for photo sessions and you must be staying within this private community for permission. We love this luxury community and we are sure you will as well.

Seaside is the epitome of a coastal community. That is why The Truman Show was filmed here. There is a central hub filled with food-trucks and shops, perfect for families. When you think 30a, most people envision family friendly, yummy food, and beautiful beach, and Seaside has it all.
