The Creative Team
I started photographing weddings from my dorm room at the Claremont colleges back when Nixon was president and film was the only way to record images. A great deal has changed since 1968, but my fascination with photography, and ultimately the stories of the people I have photographed, has made every day of my 46 years as a portrait photographer as interesting as the first. I consider myself very fortunate to be involved in what I love doing every day.

Mary Keane, Art Director
It’s been over ten years since I proudly became Mrs. Bill Keane! In that time I have been involved with every aspect of the art and technology of creating beautiful portraits. Making sure that families have truly outstanding portraits that provide heartwarming remembrances through the years is vitally important to me! As I work, I imagine great-great grandchildren viewing the portraits we create today and feeling a sense of wonder at the beauty of the faces from the past and an inner pride to be a member of their family.
As an Art History major, I studied the styles and techniques of artists through the ages and gained a solid understanding of the power of strong composition and what it means to see and control the light.
My twenty years of experience as a private school teacher is another reason I so appreciate being a part of creating portraiture for families. It’s a real pleasure for Bill & me to watch babies and children grow and change through each fleeting stage, high school seniors standing on the edge of the nest ready to fly, and then seeing the entire family as it grows and changes. I guess you could say we are having a lot of fun celebrating life and love.
“Family faces are magic mirrors. Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present and future.”

Marilyn Miceli, Production Manager
It is hard to believe that I have been with Keane Studios for 19 years now! I started as a client 21 years ago when my oldest was 6 months old. I sought out the studio because of Bill’s reputation in the community as a premier children’s photographer. Not only did I spend the next 2 years accumulating beautiful portraits, (that still hang on my walls and make me smile everyday), I was developing warm relationships with the friendly staff. When they were looking to fill a position in the studio they asked me if I was interested.
