Aaron Rosa Photography













i LOVE PEOPLE AND i love their stories.

As a writer, I was always told I noticed the small and innocuous things. As a photographer, I learned to capture those moments I see and show others the beauty I see in them.

There's a little bit of adventure in all of us, whether it's sleeping in a tent in the backyard, or climbing around a cliff to get a great sunset portrait, if you have a little of the wild in you, I'm your photographer.

I started doing portraits waist deep in Hawaii's surf, I've shot while flying missions, I've carried bear spray while capturing the Northern Lights in Canada....If you have an idea for a cool shot, I'm down.

I am a graduate of the Naval Academy and currently serving as a Naval Flight Officer. When I am not working full-time or finding that next shot, I enjoy hanging out with my son Audie, working on my masters degree in Journalism, and watching documentaries on Netflix.

I believe in capturing your family not just in the poses but in the silly moments when your four year old cracks a joke or when you kiss your spouse tenderly. 

I BELIEVE IN love and laughter

i BELIEVE IN Telling your story

Photography is more than just a family photo on your wall it's a story that you'll tell for generations to come.

i BELIEVE IN capturing the moments

Those moments when you haven't seen your spouse in six months or the moments when you meet your precious child for the first time. 

The Family Package

Perfect for families and couples. I will work to pick the perfect location for you and your family, whether that's outside near the bay, inside your home, or playing mini golf {I like different}. If you have a crazy idea, let's try it. I've shot waist deep in surf in Hawaii, and on Mayan ruins in El Salvador, let's get a unique shot.
The family package includes 2 hours of on-site shooting and edited high resolution digitals that you can download and print for your personal use.
