Who am I?

Hey there champs, my name is Marisa and I love to take photos.

A little bit about myself:

  • I have two pretty choice humans that I made myself and a cat that loves to scratch up my sofa.
  • I enjoy reading and drinking copious amounts of coffee. I love sandy toes, sunsets and tattoos.

Although I am based in New Zealand, I have been incredibly fortunate to have this career take me all over the globe. I regularly like to visit Melbourne to see my families that I have been capturing for years and 2019 gave me Scotland, London, Portugal and Marrakech.

Capturing life in all it's unscripted rawness is how I feel complete as a human. Memories and emotion are my legacy. I often look back at my galleries and get teary as the emotions pull me back into the moment.

From arriving Earthside to departing this world and moving onto the next adventure and everything in-between. This is my passion.

Your messiness is more than ok. It's absolutely bloody stunning.

“...From the very first moment Marisa made sure we didn't need to feel 'on' laughing and chatting with us the whole way through. The result is that we always get natural photos that remind me of little things that were a part of the time we did the shoot. Certain toys, clothes, and the way we played with our kids at different stages. Anytime Marisa is in Melbourne we make sure to book some time with her and have recommended her to so many of our friends as well”

“They are gorgeous. I'm so glad we chose you for capturing these special memories. You are such a talented professional. Thanks again :-) :-)”

“Omg Marisa!!! These are to die for, the are amazing!! Thank you so so much you're so so so talented xxx”

“I wouldn't call it a photo session but rather a beautiful lady welcomed into our home that also had a camera to create and capture natural shots <3 Highly recommend her for a stress free photo session”
