At just over 100 acres nestled along the picturesque coastline of Walton County, Rosemary Beach is truly a unique community along the Emerald Coast. It’s one of our favorite options for family portraits. You’ll encounter everyone from casually clad families in town for a week to well-dressed celebrities taking a welcome break from Hollywood and Broadway. From biking along the narrow, tree-lined streets to dining in any number of award-winning local eateries and shopping at one-of-a-kind boutiques, every moment spent here is a reminder of why you came. The one thing that everyone seems to have in common, regardless of their background, is their mutual acknowledgment that Rosemary Beach is an escape into contentment.
Having lived close by since its inception and witnessed firsthand its transformation into the highly sought-after destination that it’s become, we love photographing family portrait sessions in Rosemary Beach. We eat here, we work here, and we are intimately familiar with local events and the charity work that’s being done in town. We’ve even brought our kids here for fundraising events like Cottages for Kids, sponsored by the Children’s Volunteer Health Network.
It’s not hard to imagine even the people who live nearby longing for an extended stay within the boundaries of Rosemary Beach. You truly get the feeling that you’re in a parallel universe, where time is kept by listening for the town bells at the top of every hour and days go by without ever setting foot inside a car. Rosemary Beach is the place to be when you’re seeking some respite from everyday life.
Best of all, just about everything is within walking distance! Maybe you’re in the mood for drinks on the patio at Havana Beach Bar & Grill. Perhaps Cowgirl Kitchen and its Southwestern-style menu is more your style. Many places will even pack your food picnic-style so you’re free to enjoy your meal at the time and place of your choosing, all while relaxing and taking in the sights. No matter how you choose to spend your day or which meals you decide to indulge in, it’s easy to see why people continue to escape to Rosemary Beach year after year.
