Is it perhaps a rock that the little one on the right is trying to put into her bellybutton and has stolen her attention for the moment? LOL

Great summer photo!

Gloria Martens

Wow! Another chance to win that gorgeous AMR kit. Here's to hope. This is the first time I've visited your blog. Are those four little girls yours? They are adorable. Loved reading your comments about your little Annie's language. Brings back sweet memories of when my own were in that stage. Some things just need to be recorded to keep them alive.

I saw that you will be in my state of Louisiana but down quite a few miles south of here. Always wishing some kind of good classes would come this way.

Enjoyed reading your blog and will be making return visits. (Even when you don't have such a wonderful giveaway!)


Love that photo! Would also love the kit ;)

Thanks for sharing your photos, stories, and photography tips.


Love the photo it seems kids and water just go together. Looks like a great kit and I was not familiar with that site so thanks and I will check into their kits.

Rachel V.

WOW! Great giveaway! And I just love checking your blog. Thanks for the chance to win!

tamara dunkin

Thanks for sharing so many great pictures in your blog...I love reading your posts.

Erin Glee

You really have talent and an eye for photography, but it sure helps that you have the cutest "Models" on Earth! This is too adorable...and sweet.
Thank you for a chance to win this awesom kit. I've never gotten any Monthly Kit, but they sure are popular right now. I'm so "out of it"!

Kim Remer

Love all your pictures! I would love to win the kit. Hope I'm the lucky one.


I read your blog daily. Love the picture, and I would love to get the kit. Thank you!

Terry Enge

The lovely days of summer......The kit looks beautiful.

Thanks for your inspiration!



This is sweet of you!! Thanks for the giveaway.

By the way, what are the kids so intrigued at?

Christie E.

I would love to win an AMR kit! Thanks for giving one away!

Gayle VandeMaele

Cute picture!

Got to love the AMR kits!



I would soooooo love to win this kit. At east it would bring me out of the depression of not getting into any of your classes this past Monday. Yes, I'm still hurting, and honestly have lost all hope of ever being able to get in since I'm number #60 on the waiting list! Oh how sad. My husband encouraged me to look into other classes (I had been talking about you and your class for weeks, so I guess he just wants me to shut up and start a class already! LOL), but I want YOURS! Love yours. Sigh. Anyways, I won't whine anymore, but this
K-Kit looks unbelievably cute.
A-A look at it just left me wondering about all I could do with it!
R-Really, please pick me because it would make me so happy, and
E-Even if I couldn't get in your class at least I would get something from you!
N-Now that would really make my whole week!
Thanks Karen!


Very cute picture!! Love the picture of Tater (that's her name, right?) checking out the belly button!! :-) Very fun! Thanks for offering the give away! Hope I win!!


How cute is that picture. I love when kids find their belly buttons.


i really enjoy reading your blog daily. would love a chance to win a kit. your pictures are awesome! thanks.

The paper in that kit makes me swoon - thanks for highlighting them. The photo is lovely, I would call it cute times four.


aww, i LOVE baby bikini's! :) such a sweet summer photo.

Sarah H.

Summer did go by too fast! Thanks for the giveaway!! Yay!


Thanks for the chance to win. I got in to your photography class, even though I was so nervous I spelled two things wrong and had to go back. I guess the Comcast internet is worth the money. I have to say just like everyone else it felt like Christmas morning as a child getting in. I can't wait for January now. It is nice having something exciting to look forward to in the middle of winter. Thank you!


Wish your lived on the East Coast & not the West Coast. You need to teach a photography class in NY.

Tanya Andersson

Summers over? Did it ever really start?? Hard to belive that I now have a 2nd grader and he might officaly be to big to pick up. :(


Your photos are amazing! Thanks for sharing your family and
life's moments with us.


Beautiful photo!!!! I check your blog every day!


Beautiful photo. thanks for sharing it.

Vicki A

Love this kit! Pick me, Pick me! Thank you for the giveaway. :)

Vanessa {Bloom Right Here!}

Fun! I'd love to win the kit. I don't comment much here, but I read every post. I absolutely love your photography.


As busy as you are, you still manage to give your kids such a charmed life!

meg duerksen

hi karen.
i asked my husband a few weeks back "IF i actually got registered and made it IN the class would you let me take karen russell photography class?" he asked "how much" i told him and he thought for a second and said "sure. go for it"
and then i forgot on monday until noon.
oh well...i'm not quick enough anyway.
but just him saying yes was exciting enough for awhile. :)

i love scrapbook kits. what a great idea. i am so glad this is the new thing because it makes it so easy to find what you like.

congrats on selling out in 2 minutes.
you are that awesome.


That's a great picture. I would love to win that kit! Thanks for the chance!


I agree with you.....summer went by much too quickly. I like having the kids home from school! I would also love to win the kit.


Great photo and I'll keep my fingers crossed that I win this kit. Thanks again for all you do.


Love that photo. :) Courtney and Annie look like they're looking at creepy creatures in the water.


Summer does go by so quickly, but what precious summer memories you've seemed to capture! :)


Aw -- that photo is sweet! I was thinking that my summer passed too quickly too. I've got lots of photos of my guys to scrap, so I'm hoping the winter goes slowly...

Angela Mannina

What a gorgeous kit!


This summer did fly by and I wish I took more pictures. What an awesome kit!
