I'm so happy that you are here!

I'm Nerissa, a Sydney photographer based in the Hills District. I specialise in couple, maternity, newborn, children and family photography.

My love for photography begun in my late teenage years when I inherited my first camera from my dad - a Minolta x-700, 35mm film camera. Ever since that moment, I have been using photography as a way of creatively expressing myself.

When I was a small child, my four-month-old baby sister passed away suddenly. Altogether, we have less than ten photos of her with our family. This was another significant event in my life which led me to photography.

Unfortunately, back in the early 70s, film photography was expensive and sadly, my sister was only with us for a short time. As you can imagine, the few photos that we do have of her are incredibly precious to me.

These two moments in my life have shaped the person I am today. Not only has it driven my passion for photography, but it has allowed me to explore the art of visual storytelling for families, newborns, babies, children and couples.

Before we work together, I would love to hear all about you and your family. I want you to feel completely comfortable with me. Ultimately, I want to give you images and memories that will hold deep sentimental value to you for years to come.
