asha Rosa is my given name, however I have been called Rosi all since I was born. I've always wanted a way to have the name Rasha in my life. I think it suits the more nuanced and authentic me, which is the perfect start to understanding me as a photographer.
I am a Marriage and Family therapist by training. I studied, did my internship and had my first job in Seattle, WA. About a year ago, I moved to South Florida with my family to be closer to our extended family.
For a long time, I have wanted to be a newborn and maternity photographer. I absolutely adore newborns and all things birth: nurturing the mamas, soothing babies and their parents, and being with and around those experiencing this glorious life event. It is everything that defines peace.
When we moved, I thought that this could be the time for a transition. And here comes the authenticity. As I grow, I constantly think about this being my "one" life. Although I love being a therapist, and I hope to integrate that back in my life, I know that I am nuanced. I can love and work at more than one thing. Hold the dialectical. In allowing myself to meet me where I'm at, I have discovered that I love to shoot people, all people, although newborns and mamas will always have my heart.
haven't met you yet, and you may not know me, but I am incredibly happy for you. Congratulations to you and your family! I am very excited to have the opportunity to capture this moment and create images that evoke feeling every time you see them.
When you give birth or are growing a baby human, there are so many FEELINGS: joy, excitement, sadness, depressed mood, fear, anxiety and contentment. I get it and I get you. I would never want the experience of documenting this stage to be stressful. I want to support you and enrich this sacred and wondrous time that you are about to experience.
We truly enjoyed working with you for our photoshoot and very much appreciated how comfortable you made us feel throughout the entire process! The photos came out exquisite and captured real life moments, which was our ultimate goal!
Thank you again!
THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME CAPTURE THE NEW BORN MOMENTS. THEY ARE HEAVENLY. I HAD A GREAT TIME WORKING WITH YOU. YOU ARE GENTLE WITH THE BABY AND WORK COMFORTABLY WITH A NEW BORN AND OLDER KIDS, WHICH WAS GREAT. I LOVED THAT YOU CAPTURED MOMENTS RATHER THEN JUST POSES.
I WAS EXCITED AND NERVOUS AT THE SAME TIME. I HAD JUST GIVEN BIRTH TO TWINS!
BUT AS SOON AS ROSI WALKED IN TO OUR HOME, SHE HAD THIS AURA ABOUT HER THAT MADE US ALL FEEL SO RELAXED, CALM, HAPPY AND COMFORTABLE.
THIS IS SOMETHING WE'll TREASURE FOREVER. ROSI IS AWESOME. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER!!
I want to spend time with you during this wondrous time.
These are your moments. Your memories to capture.
Let's do it!
