I'd like to enter Aimee Lombardo for raffle.

She's my cousin with a brand new baby, Faye. Aimee and hubby Seth are saving up for DSLR. In the meantime, they have my old Sony. She felt they didn't have any good pictures of Faye during her first 2 weeks home. You'd laugh seeing Aimee scrunch up her face as she described photos that the flash went off! Her goal is better shots not using a flash. Aimee is a newbie and I did my best to get her started shooting in Aperture Priority. Thanks Karen!

Oh my gosh! I long and long to take your class but we never can get the money to do it. I would love to enter for a seat, please. <3


Thank you so so much for this opportunity! My husband surprised me with a DSLR for Christmas a year ago and I have fallen madly in love with photography. I have studied the manual and free tutorials online but would love to take the next step and take your class. I have been stalking your blog for a few years and your online class has been #1 on my wish list for the past year for my birthday, Christmas, and now Valentine's, but we sadly cannot afford it yet (why does being a grown-up and having children have to be so expensive?). Anyway, crossing my fingers that luck is on my side. Thanks!


I am a former auditing student, and although I would love to audit again, I can't right now, but am asking for an auditing seat for next time you hold a class (hopefully their will be a birthday or holiday around the time registration is!) but I am not asking for me, but I am writing to nominate my friend/co-worker. We are both pre-k teachers, so although we love our job, money is tight. Sarah is a great teacher, and such a supportive co-worker, I love working with her every day! She is a very good photographer already (she has such a great eye for composition) but she recently got a second hand DSLR and I know she would enjoy this class and it make her photography even better! I would love for her to be able to take this class!
Thanks for the chance!


I have taken and audited the class and I would like to enter for my friend Elizabeth. She is my photog buddy and I know she would love this and would never spend that much money on herself.

I would love to see my sister Michelle get a chance to take your class. She's a stay at home momma to two babies almost 3 and 1 and I think it would be a great opportunity for her. She hasn't really done something for herself in a while. She's always loved photography and is very good at it. Thank you!! You are the best Karen! <3

I would like to enter my wonderful daughter-in-law Maranda Ford into this chance of a lifetime class. She loves photography and her dream is to go pro someday. Thanks for this chance Karen!

I would love to enter my friend Beth. She has watched me learn photography and even been my willing subject for some of your lessons. She has a great compositional eye (makes me jealous!) and a huge desire to learn how to take better photos of her children. I'll let her borrow my D40 for class since she doesn't have a DSLR yet (it's top on her wishlist).

Ps- thanks for doing critiques on your blog. I miss your forum!


I would love for my niece, Lindsey, to win a seat in your class! She is a stay at home mom to 3 kiddos and her husband is a Army veteran--they get by but she would never spend the money on herself for your class. She has a very natural "eye" for photography and is able to frame some of the most interesting shots of her kids, but she knows nothing about the settings on her camera so she just shoots everything in auto mode. I know learning about her camera and how to shoot without a flash would make such a difference in her photos! She could very likely make photography a business once she gets all of her kids grown! Thanks for the opportunity to get her in your class.

I'm with Jacki and would love to see our mutual friend Beth win a seat!


I long to learn something about photography, but cannot afford to do so right now. Money is tight this year: my husband (who has MS) and I have a son who is finishing his last year in university and then is planning to get married in the summer. I know it is really rude to think of myself but I guess I am selfishly hoping so I can take good wedding photos and save them some money too!


it is a dream of mine to be able to fill an audit seat in one of your workshops. fingers crossed that this is my chance! thank you for your generosity and using your God-given talent to be a blessing to others. xoxo. taniawillis. (taniawillis AT columbus DOT rr DOT com)


I would love to be able to take your class. We get by, but we are still paying off student loans. We are both educators so we don't make much money! Our oldest son has started taking a college class years earlier than expected so traditional scholarships aren't available to him/us.

Best wishes to all who are interested in this!!


Just stopping by to leave my email for my nomination of Sarah and to leave the word "would" for the sentence "it make her photography better " !

Thanks again, for a chance at such an awesome gift!


My sister Angie introduced me to your blog about 7 years ago and we've drooled over your photos ever since. I was able to take the class about a year and a half ago and it was fantastic. Angie's husband is in grad school they've got two little girls and another baby on the way. While she's always wanted to take your class, it's never been able to work out for her. I know she'd love it!
Thanks Karen!


I would love love love to take your class! I've been trying to time it right and find the funds to do it for years. I just got engaged and we're forced to do the long distance thing while I finish up my last internships for grad school. Your class would be a PERFECT distraction from missing my love and help me get ready to be able to capture all the exciting things we have ahead of us… my graduation, our wedding, honeymoon…. and whatever happens next in life (babies maybe?) :)


Oh my email is vieve909 at!

Monday is my birthday and I would live to win a spot in your class. It would make it the Best. Day. Ever.

Jenna LaFleur

Hi. . . I write to ask to be considered for one of the auditing spots for your upcoming workshop. I have a passion for art, capturing moments, and especially telling story. I work very hard keep these things alive while being wife, mother of 3, in part time mission work, and staying connected in my kids day to day. We are currently a one income family and I cannot afford your class--though I have great respect for it--what you do--how you instruct and share your art with others. I love to learn and grow as an artist--person. . . it changes me--and I want to use it in my life to help others. I would be so honored to have the opportunity. Thanks for offering space and your consideration.


I've enjoyed your blog for a few years. I love the photo tips and how you share your heart. I wouldn't be able to afford your course otherwise, so I'd love to be considered for the audited seat. Thanks!


Hi there, my name is Zach and I would like to nominate Genevieve for your workshop ( My fiance and I are currently doing the long distance thing, bi-coastaly Boston to LA, and this would be an amazing experience for her and for us. We both share a passion for photography and this opportunity would link us together across the nation. Thank you for the consideration!


I'd be head-over-heels happy for a chance to take your class, Karen! You're amazing. Thanks for another chance!

Renee S

Hi Karen! I'd love to be considered for an auditing seat in your workshop. I've been trying to save up for a spot for a few years now & it seems like something always comes up that demands my savings more! It's awesome that you're doing this for those of us who have the desire & passion to learn more about photography, but don't quite have the means to do so!



I'd like to win the spot for my friend Yolanda Robinson. Now that you aren't ever having another Hometown Workshop, she lost her will. But I think she should still take your on-line workshop. She's artistic, funny, and an all around lovely person!

Candace L

I would absolutely love the chance to learn from you Karen. I can't spend the money now even though it would be money well spent. Critiques like this one are fascinating for me to take a peek into how you analyze a photo. Thanks for sharing!


This class would be a great 40th birthday present for me (3/12)! I love to take pictures and have a camera, just need this amazing class!!! :) thanks for offering up these seats. My email address is
