LET ME START BY SAYING HOW MUCH MY KIDS ADORE HER.

They’re usually shy and reserved at school, but with Maryam, they’re telling jokes and showing her magic tricks. Maryam is so patient and awesome with them and makes taking family photos so fun. Taking photos as an adult can sometimes feel awkward, but rest assured that Maryam will kindly guide you through what the heck to do with your hands. She truly makes it fun and easy for all ages. She's immensely talented and creative. On top of being an artistic genius, she's a genuinely kind and fun person. Don't hesitate in hiring Maryam. She's the best.

I could sing Maryam’s praises all day.

I hired her to take newborn-family photos of my now family of 4. I wanted to capture my newborn in this little stage but also the essence of our new family dynamic. Maryam was quick to respond and very responsive throughout the booking process. But what I loved most were the images! She captured authentic and joyful images of my entire family. She works quick - we spent about an hour together - and it felt so easy and carefree. She has an eye for family portraits and was amazing working with my oldest who is 6.5 yrs old. Highly recommend Maryam. If you’re into stress free, joyful and beautiful photographs she’s your gal!

She makes you feel like she's an old friend.

Maryam did a Fresh 48 session with us when we had our son in December. When someone can make you feel comfortable and at ease when you're at your most sleep deprived a day after giving birth; that really says something! She is so cheery and easy to work with. Maryam captured beautiful pictures of our newborn which we will cherish forever. She also came to our house for a family session. Again, we were in awe of the special family moments that she captured. If you are looking for a photographer that has a great eye for capturing beautiful moments then look no further! :)

HERE’S WHY

making photos

with maryam IS

THE RADDEST


Hi & Hello photography is all about getting real moments in the places you spend time together as a family. For most families, our first session is at home with the people we love most in the world. We document the important bits of our lives (hint: every little thing is important), in the place we feel most comfortable. Kids open up quicker, show off their sweet moves and cool rooms, and we get real real.
