Mia Isabella Aguirre

Owner, principal photographer, actor

Mia has been working as a headshot photographer for over seven years and has branched out into theatre and event photography in the past four. She lives in Astoria, New York, where she runs her in-home studio. When she's not carrying a camera, you can find acting in a number of theatre productions each year. She loves dinner parties and jogging in her "backyard" (Astoria Park). 


Brandon Saloy

Web + Social media, secondary photographer

Brandon is a graphic designer and recent grad from the Fashion Institute of Technology. You will likely meet him the day of your headshots in the studio while he works on signage and wayfinding projects for T-Squared Design. He takes on web, social media, branding, and editorial design work on a freelance basis, and manages the M.I.P. website and social media accounts in-house. He enjoys cats, books, and worships in the Church of Stevie Nicks. 


Katie George

Photo assistant, style expert

Also an Astoria resident, Katie has been instrumental in getting Mia Isabella Photography off the ground. A graduate of the Parsons School of Design, she currently works as a design assistant at Macy's. She's an equally perfect companion for a productive workday in the studio or an evening of wine and Netflix thereafter. 



Angelica Baez-Chavez

Photo assistant, style expert

Currently completing her degree in fashion at the Parsons School of Design, Angelica is an old friend and a beloved member of our team. When she's not assisting with shoots and editing, Angelica works as a design intern at Marc Jacobs. 


Brittany Famighetti

Photo assistant

The latest addition to the M.I.P. family, Brittany is a recent Astoria neighbor and a very talented dancer. She loves travel, Disney movies (she can even help you plan your trip to Disney, inquire for rates), winemaking, and anything related to the supernatural.
