Capturing moments that matter!


I’m Nerissa, a Sydney photographer based in the Hills District. I specialise in couple, maternity, newborn, children and family photography – you could say that I’m a photographer that shoots all of the really important stages of life! My style of photography is mostly relaxed and candid, with a few posed shots. Ultimately, what is important to me is capturing your story and your connection with loved ones – whether it is your partner, baby bump, newborn or growing children. I do this by shooting the in-between, candid moments; the cuddles, the tears and the laughter – which I believe are all worth remembering. In years to come, I want you to be swept back to the exact feeling and moment in time that your images were taken with fond memories. My sessions are a chance for everyone to slow down, take a breath and have fun.

“Nerissa made our family shoot so relaxed and a lot of fun. Very happy with our photos which beautifully captured a precious moment in time for our family. ”

Christine P - Kenthurst, NSW

" Earlier this year we had some family snaps taken by Nerissa. Our little boy was about to turn one and we are so grateful for the precious memories she captured for us. The shoot location Nerissa helped us choose was just beautiful and we felt so relaxed- it was fun! We received our photos quickly and were thrilled with the quality. "

Tiana M - Stanhope Gardens, NSW

" We had Nerissa take photos of our family when she came over to WA. Having a young daughter, co-operation to get photos can be tricky. Nerissa was great at getting the natural family interaction shots we were after. She was very prompt at returning our images for us to view. When arranging a venue and time her communication with us was excellent. We had a great time, we felt very relaxed during the photo shoot. Nerissa J is a photographer I would highly recommend. "

Emma A, Gosnells, WA

" Nerissa is amazing at what she does! My daughter and I have had a number of photo shoots with her and the images she produced are breathtaking. She is able to capture such beautiful moments, emotions and spaces as well as amazing angles and views. It is always a pleasure to be in Nerissa’s company; she’s easy going yet displays professionalism and passion for her work, humble, down to earth and fun to be around. I can highly recommend Nerissa J Photography, you won’t be disappointed! "

" This photographer has captured the essence of my family. Exceptionally happy with all her photos. Highly recommended. "

Carol D - Pitt Town, NSW

" Couldn't be happier with the family portraits Nerissa took. Getting so many people to look relaxed and "smile nicely" all at the same time was a miracle, The lovely memories we have on our wall of our grandies, whole family, and individual groups too, are daily reminders of our precious loved ones, and the special time we had together -an event of scattered families we are not often blessed to share. We did appreciate the trouble Nerissa went to find just the right situation and lighting for our unique photos. "

Barbara D, Central Coast, NSW

" Nerissa worked closely with us to create the perfect photo shoot for my husband and I and our 3 kids. In celebration of our 10th wedding anniversary she organised for us to go back to the private garden where we got married. Nerissa was able to capture both beautiful romantic images of my husband and I as well as lovely family photos with our kids, all in the one photo shoot. We will treasure these photos forever and are so grateful to Nerissa for going above and beyond to make the whole process relaxed and enjoyable. "

Kelly S, Thornlie, WA

" Nerissa took photos of my family for me to gift to my parents as Christmas present keepsakes. My family are shy in front of the camera, however, Nerissa made us all feel safe and comfortable with her natural calm style and wonderful sense of humour. The pictures turned out amazing and they are something my parents and I will treasure. "
