Nafisa / Fifi / Fee / Feefster


Hi. My name is Nafisa, but most people call me Fifi or Fee or Feefster. I answer to any.

I am a lifestyle and portrait photographer. I take photos of people and let them reminisce it for a lifetime.

Born and raised in Singapore, I moved to the USA at 18 years old. After graduating from Portland State University with a BS degree, I moved to New York City to nanny and travel. Here I was gifted my first DSLR camera and fell in love with photography as I photographed children in beautiful New York City.

My goal when I photograph is to capture moments between people - to tell the story of two lovers, a family or of friends. When my mom recently became sick and was near the end of her life, I realized that I didn't have many photos of her with her children in the earlier days. This continues to be a motivator for me - to help capture memories; the everyday authenticity, fun and love that is shared between people. Memories that will be cherished for years to come, always alive on print. Go ahead and make some room in those shelves. 

I am based in New York City. I shoot lifestyle and portrait photography, in addition I have photographed for Lands' End and Aeropostale, have assisted fashion photographers in NYC and currently a studio manager for a recognized photographer Christina Holmes. My photos have also been seen in international magazines, on Randi Zinn for Beyond Mom's blog and on the walls of clients. I am also available for and enjoy travel photography - traveling with a family or group and photographing the trip. 

Just picture you and your family or lovers or friends gathered around the photos. Trust me there will be laughters, tears and stories. All in a great recipe for a true bonding session. Let's make that happen!


“If a photographer cares about the people before the lens and is compassionate, much is given. It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument.” - Helmut Newton
