My approach is simple, warm, and down-to-earth. The mission is to connect, have a good time, and put everyone at ease. While you are hanging out with your people, walking, laughing, and enjoying each other, I strive to craft lovely photographs that reflect your family in a genuine, easy feeling way. 

We'll likely meet at a Northwest Indiana Region / Chicagoland outdoor location or in the comfort of your home. 

Before the session, clients recieve:

-Questionnaire to share goals + details

-Prep Guide to help get ready

Maria Rosa Photography captures cherished moments with documentary, editorial, personal, and natural portraits + photographs.
