how to create an object style with a photo box and text box attached below

I'm creating a booklet that contains many bio's. To the left of each bio but inset within the text will be that person's photo and then directly beneath the photo is a text box with their last name. (Screen shot of an example)

 

I found the settings that I want for the anchored object but I've been manually going into eacth one and entering them. Is there a way I can make some kind of style that I can apply to this? 

 

I tried to use object style, but when I did that it would change the text box area beneath it. I've only worked with character styles, so I'm sure I'm overlooking what I should do. 

 

Is there a way to make this style so I can automate this process?

In the object style try unchecking all of the boxes under basic attributes except for "anchored object options" and "text wrap & other". Then when you apply the object style it will only effect those two things.

You may want to explore ID's caption feature, which is oddly limited but would be a precise solution to what you're attempting.

 

It is difficult to create multi-element objects and have anchoring work correctly.
