Brooklyn Family and Lifestyle Photographer

“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

Hey there! 

My name is Nafisa, but you can call me Fifi or Fee. I am a lifestyle and portrait photographer based in Brooklyn, NY. I spent my childhood years growing up in Singapore, before moving to the southern Oregon coast with my family. I’m now delighted to call New York home. I started my photography business after my mother got very sick. As she neared the end of her life, I realized my family did not have many photos with my mother and my siblings from our childhood. I decided to be a photographer so I could continue to document memories and capture the fleeting authenticity, love and tears of daily life.

Fun Fact:
I am a trained childhood educator. I taught preschool for a few years and was also a professional nanny, where I traveled with a family and photographed the numerous international trips. Seeing how my photos brought immense joy to the family I worked for was also a huge starting point and motivator for Nafisa Skeie Photography.

Some of My Clients Include:
I have photographed for brands Lands End and Aeropostale, assisted various fashion photographers in NYC and I’m also currently a studio manager for recognized photographer Christina Holmes . My photos have been featured
in international magazines, including Randi Zinn for their Beyond Mom's blog.

As a trained childhood educator, my philosophy for helping you capture memories would just be like having a friend over and having fun with your kids—except that I beautifully document your laughter, tears and stories. I am also available for travel photography—traveling with a family or group. 

When I’m not photographing, I love to travel and attend music concerts with my partner James, and cuddle with my cat Stripes.

Drop me a note, I’d love to hear from you!
