Every year, the Greater Boston area produces the Hatch Awards which shine a light on the “best branding created anywhere” and celebrates creative excellence within the field. The 61st annual Hatch Awards took place last month and we at Indresano Studios were thrilled to receive multiple awards from the establishment.
We are proud to share we won six awards at this year’s Hatch Awards. Our video profiling Noelle Lambert, a Paralympian of the 2021 Tokyo Olympics and a Massachusetts native, took home the bronze bowl for the Equity category. Our Nike Mercurial Video won a bronze in the Brands Amplified category.
Do you ever look at your pet and wish they could help you pay rent?
Indresano Studios hosted a Pet Casting Call Day earlier this month to find the paw-fect pets for a commercial job. We had the pleasure of meeting several dogs and cats that were ready to put in the work and become stars!
Here are just a few of our four-legged friends:
Coconut is fun and energetic! He was very excited to be visiting the studio and getting his beauty shots in.
Elle was nervous for her first time in the studio. However, a couple of treats would make anyone feel better!
Morrigan was our youngest dog in the studio! Her energy was infectious, and she got everyone in the studio excited for the day ahead.
Timber had no problem following instructions during our shoot. He went above and beyond and deserves a round of a-paws.
Arlo came in camera ready on casting day. He was an expert when it came to posing in front of the camera. He made sure we got all his good angles!
Kona was so happy being in the studio and felt right at home! We can’t help but smile when we see his floppy ears and shining personality.
Scrappy’s name fits him perfectly! Though he may be small in stature, he makes up for it with an adorable face and powerful pose.
Luca loved having the spotlight! He thought the food was delicious…even though he did have a hard time keeping it in the bowl.
These pets brought their A-game to our casting day! Our in-house team worked tirelessly to make sure these pets had a fantastic time modeling on set. We were so excited to meet each one of them!
This marks another successful casting call for Indresano Studios!

Our in-house animation team for our series Natalia’s World has been hard at work this month! From writing scripts, to creating storyboards, to recording voiceovers at our studio — we’ve put our heart and soul into making this fun and educational animated series for children.
Our cartoon series follows spunky 9-year-old Natalia, who navigates life, school, friends and family! She has the help of her magical moral compass to guide her through hard decisions, as she tries to do the right thing. Our series is based on our director and executive producer’s children, Natalia and Michael, in real life!
We had the most fun recording voiceovers in the studio! Natalia (9 yrs) and Michael (5 yrs) were true professionals, adding flare, personality and excitement to their delivery of lines! Not to mention, they’re adorable!
We released our most recent episode “How to Stand up to a Bully,” where Natalia must figure out how to deal with a bully at school. It was exciting seeing all of our revisions, edits, and animations come together for the final result.
A huge thank you to Ultimate Self Defense in South Boston, for participating in the video and encouraging morals of strength and courage amongst young people! We were excited to have the owner, Andrea ‘Sensei,’ record voiceover for the role of the Judo Instructor in this episode!

Welcome to day one of production for our most recent lifestyle photo shoot. As well as my first location shoot as an intern at Indresano Studios!
My second week and we were on the road for a location shoot. Kudos to Maggie Model, Ilima for handling the heat so well in late August! She was relieved when this shot was positioned in the shade.
I stayed on my toes all day to make sure that Ilima and the product were good to go. Every member of the team did great in the hot weather.
Day one of production and my first location shoot was a success! It was great to see a full team at work for this lifestyle photo shoot. As a young creative, there was a lot to take away from the day.
We knew day two of production for this on location lifestyle shoot would be that much better when we saw this would be our view for the day!
Sabrina from Model Club was a natural on set! She looked perfectly business professional thanks to the outfits chosen for the shots by TEAM wardrobe stylist, Coleen Gannon.
Coleen and TEAM hair and makeup stylist, Paula Voisembert, were an amazing pair for this lifestyle photo shoot! They were on top of everything, especially with the wind being so strong.
A loud bang caught us off guard! The U.S.S. Constitution gave everyone a surprise visit with it’s roaring canons. What a special treat on a beautiful day, and a great way to top off day two.
A successful two days of production at two different locations. Now for the post production work. Michael and everyone involved taught me so much in just these two days.
The rush of having a heavy schedule in the early weeks of my internship was exactly what I needed. It gave me no choice but to learn more about equipment needed for on location lifestyle shoots shoots.

The Indresano team has always prided itself on using only the latest and greatest photographic technology. To prove it, we’d like to introduce you to the Hasselblad H6D-100c.
The Hasselblad H6D represents the pinnacle of photographic quality, clarity, sharpness and depth. It comes equipped with a whopping 100-megapixel sensor.
Because of this, we get files more than twice the size of images from the industry’s leading DSLR cameras like the Canon 5Ds and Nikon D810. We are ecstatic to have this heavy hitter in our studio!
In addition to being tremendously beautiful, the H6D produces 605 MB 16-Bit files. This gives us an unprecedented amount of information to work with in post-production.
The Hasselblad’s leaf shutter system allows us to use much faster flash speeds than ANY mainstream DSLR. This helps us to freeze liquids, explosions, and anything else we can think of with perfect clarity.
On top of everything listed here, the H6D-100C is capable of capturing UHD 4K video. At long last, our team can shoot 4K video with Hasselblad’s legendary optics. The H6D produces some of the cleanest looking 4K footage we’ve ever seen.
Technical limitations have never hindered the creativity of our team. The question is, what ideas will you bring to the table so that we can help bring them to life?
“Cream or sugar?” It’s the clichéd but fail-proof question lurking in the back of my mind on Day 1 of any internship. Somehow my social awkwardness didn’t scare away the interviewers, and the much-anticipated first day leaves my mind spinning. Will it be super corporate? Will the rest of the team like me? Will I learn about the industry or practice my barista skills? “Point me to the Keurig,” I think, just to be on the safe side.
I am so grateful to say those anxieties evaporated the second I entered Michael Indresano Photography. The studio is stunning. It’s modern and sophisticated yet fun and energetic. Early 2000s R&B blasts on the radio all day. Oh, did I mention there’s a dog? Take a look at the majestic Sofia who keeps us company:
Just when I thought things couldn’t get better, Michael let us know we would be having a shoot later in the week for a company specializing in beauty products. Check out some behind the scenes moments as I took in all this incredible first week had to offer:
Rule #1: Windex is your friend. We got right to work preparing for the shoot by making sure the studio was spotless and the equipment was ready to go. Shoutout to Abby for teaching me how to test the camera and set up the lights.
Hangers galore! I was stunned to see how many clothing options arrived at the studio for the shoot.
A shoot is nothing without a dedicated crew. Here we have our insanely talented hair stylist Paula, wardrobe specialist Coleen, and makeup artist Jennifer. It was so great working with this detail-oriented team!
Not only were they beautiful, but the models are some of the most genuinely friendly people I’ve met. Here are some shots of Lauren, Anna, and Anais as the shoot got underway.
Last but not least, here’s one of my favorite behind-the-scenes shots from the day. Check out the beautiful flares that the lighting cast on our bold model Anais.
As you can see, I’d say it was a pretty amazing first week all in all. Thank you so much to Michael for the incredible internship opportunity. I can’t wait to see what else upcoming weeks have in store!
As a Boston Food Photographer studio, it’s no surprise we like ICE CREAM around here! Just take a look through our website indresano.com and you will notice we are obsessed with ice cream! Some people love cat videos, we LOVE ice cream. We photograph ice cream, we video ice cream. If the sun were a ginormous scoop of tiramisu gelato we would be a sunflower basking in its delicious ice creamy rays. And we would take the ice cream on exciting adventures too. Like this recent project where we made cool melty looks from a few of our favorite flavors.
Nothing looks more tasty than melting vanilla ice cream.
Except melting chocolate ice cream!
Imagine doing a double twister triple somersault dive straight into this scoop Olympic style?
We are such enthusiasts, we even create our own homemade vanilla bean ice cream!
