Every year our wonderful team at Mike Larson, Inc has grown.  We are a tight-nit family and have grown so close to each other this year.  As the leader of the team, I’m proud of them.  They do most of the work that goes on in our studio and deserve most all of the credit.  We are part of a team that has a self policing (or self challenging) company culture of excellence, character, tenacity, drive, passion, and a desire to ensure all of our clients & colleagues we work with feel loved and served well.

This year marks the 9th year we’ve done work in San Luis Obispo, 13 years total of photography.  Even as the years pass, its encouraging and humbling to look back at our past work and to think how much we’ve grown since then only reminds us of how much more territory there is to explore, grow, and improve.  Even though we have a gratefulness for where we have arrived at the end of 2010 thanks to our wonderful clients, we maintain a contentedness for the amount of work we have been commissioned for, we also have a longing to push deeper in relationships with our clients and friends we work with.  So a big thank you to all of those who came along side us this year, assistants, drivers, second shooters, third shooters, all of our outsourcing team, we could not have done it without you.

A big thank you to Kiss wedding books, for enabling us to provide amazing books to our clients this year.  Thank you to Pictage for hosting our images and providing access to their family and friends. Thanks to ShootQ, who has enabled our entire team and clients to be paperless and hyper efficient, Without these core services, we would be unable to do what we do.

And to our team, Necia, thank you for all the amazing Albums you design, Jake for your sweet designs of our new blog and upcoming website, and the card you put together.  Sophie, for running all the production at amazing levels to serve all of our clients this year!  Chloe, who takes care of all our leads and inquiries coming in.  For Jamie who is our new stylist, and helping our clients to style themselves in our shoots!  Thank you to Stephanie & Samantha for assisting in the studio production.  Jeniene, for all the studio details you manage, you rock!  And thank you to my wife, Rachel who takes care of all the books and numbers.  You are the face of this team and this years card means so much more to me.  You all enable me to do what I do best, and to encourage other photographers and small businesspeople around the world as I travel and shoot, doing what I love.  Thank you to our studio assistants, Anna, Samantha & Stephanie as well! I’m nothing without you guys.  What a team. Thank you all for another amazing year!
