When the cold weather hit, it meant one thing at the studio- Indresano Angel’s time! We got a date on the calendar, found our inspiration images and we were ready to go!

Maryelle Artistry came to help get the production team all ‘glammed’ up for the shoot. It’s not everyday you get to get the full Kardashian treatment!

A couple of final touches from Maryelle on set as the lighting gets set.

Executive Producer Millie stands in to help get all the final touches ready, and to show off her fabulous outfit!

Emma, Millie, and Shannon really know how to work their angels!

A quick shot behind the set shows all the work that goes into getting the lighting and set just right!

Charlie’s Angels had their mysterious leader, but we think ours is much cuter. ūüôā

One last shot of Mommy and baby Michael, because we couldn’t pick just one!


We had a great turnout for the studio’s 20th Anniversary celebration. ¬†Thanks to all of you who came out to toast to twenty years! ¬†For those who couldn’t make it, check out the video and photos below for a glimpse into some of the night’s fun. ¬†Some of our clients many not even recognize the space, but the party actually took place in our very own studio – transformed over just 24 hours into a Miami lounge scene right here in Southie. ¬†A fun time was had by all.

Here are some of our favorite photos from the night:

Lounge areas were designed by Style Studio, and beautiful orchids, topiaries, and succulents provided by Stapleton Floral.

As a way to say thanks to his many loyal clients, Michael gave away party favors to each guest who attended the celebration.

We like to “roll out the red carpet” for our clients here at the studio… so we couldn’t resist doing just that for our Anniversary Party.

Above and below are some of our favorite clients who came out to celebrate with us.

A couple special ladies even flew in all the way from California to toast with Michael.

 Even Momma got the red carpet treatment!

Delectable hors d’oeuvers and flowing cocktails were provided by¬†The Catered Affair,

From a martini bar on the patio to specialty drinks being passed inside, no one went thirsty at our party.

Everyone had plenty of cocktails and laughs throughout the night.

Smilebooth provided hours of entertainment for all.

It is hard to believe it has been 20 years since I opened my first studio! It feels like yesterday that I welcomed my first client at 355 Congress St., in the late spring of 1992. I have enjoyed every day and every shoot; it has never felt like work to me.

I would like to thank each and every client I have had the privilege to work with over the last 20 years. ¬†It is largely due to their loyalty and innovative ideas that the last 20 years in business have been so rewarding. ¬†I’m not in this alone; my staff of professionals makes it possible for me to focus on what I love most: capturing the perfect image. ¬†It goes without saying that without the support of my family and friends, I would not have achieved this level of success.

Although many things have changed in the photography industry since I snapped my first photo with a Pentax K1000, the way I think about my clients has remained consistent. From day one, my philosophy has been to bring my clients’ vision to life within the comforts of my studio.

My first studio at 355 Congress St.

Former producer, Heather, and I brainstorm before a shoot.

My first client Computervision, Inc., sent me around the globe for 5 weeks in 1993. I traveled with two assistants to South Korea, Italy, Germany, France, Japan (pictured) and Canada photographing CEO‚Äôs and factories for companies such as Hyundai, Siemens, Audi, and Fiat, to name a few. That’s me on the far right, with assistant Jeff to the left of me.

I wanted a place where I could provide a comfortable space with all of the amenities. Luckily, I found a building that was a diamond in the rough at 33 A Street right in South Boston. This has been my home away from home since 1998 and continues to be today.

The patio area at 33 A Street became an outdoor shower for models, Sylvia and Mark, during a shoot for Crabtree & Evelyn.  Assistants Aldo (far left) and Joe (right) had a fun time too!

Hanging out with Jay Leno after I shot his portrait in Burbank, California. I found out that our families descended from the same town: Avellino, Italy!

Below are some of my favorite portraits and personalities from over the past 20 years. It’s been quite a ride – thanks again to everyone who has made it such a memorable adventure!

And here are just some of the thousands of products I’ve had so much fun shooting over the years.

I’m very excited to see what the next 20 years hold for the future of the studio. ¬†If they are anything like the past 20, I can’t wait to get this party started.
