Maryam Russel

Who's My Photographer?

My name is Maryam and I’m the girl behind the lens. I currently operate an all-inclusive fine art photography studio experience at my studio located in Santa Clara, CA

I’ve traveled the world and the United States is the 5th country and 3rd continent I’ve lived in. The one thing that remains consistent throughout my travels is my love for photography. 

After graduating from Emily Carr University of Art and Design, I received extensive training throughout the years. During this time, I worked with master photographers in a variety of fields. My training also includes working with professional studio lighting as well as natural light, both in studio and outdoors. 

I am an award winning, professional fine art photographer with more than 10 years experience working in the field. My focus is in maternity, newborn, family, and portraiture for the past five years. I’ve received extensive knowledge and training in proper newborn photography safety and posing techniques. This ensures a safe and quality experience for my clients and their precious little ones.

Since moving to San Jose in the Bay Area, I’ve started my own business as a local fine art photographer. I offer clients a fully furnished fine art photography studio complete with high-end props, wardrobe, and professional lighting.  Throughout the years, I realized my passion for working with families. Capturing precious family moments through my fine art photography lens brings me so much joy. Whether it’s documenting special family milestones, a maternity photo session, or helping you welcome a sweet new addition to your family by doing a newborn photography session.  A Baby Milestone photography session is perfect for documenting your baby’s ever-changing cuteness. Let’s celebrate your baby’s first anniversary around the sun by doing a one year old Cake Smash photography session. Or we can simply chronicle the growth of your family with an annual indoor or outdoor family photography session. I feel honored to tell your story.   I proudly serve families all across the San Francisco Bay Area. My coverage area includes: San Jose, Campbell, Willow Glen, Los Gatos, Cupertino, Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Redwood City, Milpitas, Fremont, Hayward, Gilroy, Oakland, Livermore and more. You can inquire about my fine art photography for pregnant mothers, newborns, families, and portraiture on my services page.
