Our family owns three businesses. Larkin Food Center, a rural store, Grandma's Pumpkin Patch and an excavation company, Earthmovers of Midland. These businesses keep us hopping. My family purchased Larking Food Center in 2010 and I quit my corporate job to be a manager of the store with my mom. I also have been managing our seasonal business, Grandma's Pumpkin Patch since 2007. Last year an opportunity came up for me and I have also been working as the Director of Fund Development at a local non-profit. It was a fun filled year with lots of growth opportunity both personally and professionally. By working at the non-profit I gained experience in management, learned to work with a Board of Directors, gained exposure in the community, and developed experience in sales. The past year was a busy one, and also a stressful one.

Many people have the talent and the equipment but not the space for a studio. We have the space! MI Studio is a full photography studio with a graffiti wall, back drops, Savage seamless paper backdrops, a brick wall stage, and an area that looks like the inside of a barn. The studio also has lighting equipment and many, many, many props. The property at Grandma's Pumpkin Patch is available as an outdoor studio with great natural settings and landscaped settings including an antique truck. MI Studio offers a meeting area as well. This space is available for rent for parties or to host classes, meeting space and if you have a membership to MI Studio you can use the space to meet clients. Half of the battle of starting a business is having a space that you can present your brand professionally and MI Studio can help with that.
MI Studio is my leap of faith that has me excited and nervous all at the same time. I hope the community enjoys the space as much as I do. To learn more about MI Studio please visit our Facebook page.
