I'm very thankful you taught classes. I only wish I'd known then what I know now, and I wouldn't have wasted so much money on other classes. I think I've grown as a photographer and a person since taking your classes and meeting you and the other lovely ladies! Thank YOU!

Kathy R.

I've already spoken to you about how I feel about discovering The Photographer's Workshop. So if you don't ever teach the workshop again, I just know that everything came together and you were teaching the workshop at EXACTLY the time I needed to take it. That wasn't luck, that was a guiding hand.

I've grown so much since that time and have met (in real life and otherwise) so many people that I now call friends, including you.

Good luck with your new workshop. I already know that someone, somewhere will be richly blessed.


I will feel forever blessed that God so beautifully painted you into the picture of my life. You are an extraordinary human being. <3

Thankful, like so many students of yours, to have you as a mentor and a friend. Not only is your photography an inspiration, but your life experiences as well, which you so willingly share. I am sure this next journey you are undertaking with be an amazing experience for all those involved... what an exciting endeavor it will be! Can't wait to catch up again sometime! {{{HUGS}}}

Andrea :)

Oh Karen, I am so incredibly thankful for you and your wonderful photography class. It really was a game changer that was a catalyst for some big adventures and new horizions in my life. You have an amazing gift and a beautiful soul, my friend! I will be watching and cheering you on as you head off on your new journey. Hugs! :)

Anna from RI

You have a remarkable way with words, Karen. Hugs!


I am grateful for your teaching. You are so excited about what you do, you can't help but transfer that enthusiasm to your students. I am thankful to have audited The Photographers Workshop - and don't think I will ever truly be 'finished' with that course!

(Just promise that you won't ever take away access to the workshop on-line....I'm a slow learner.....and although I have everything printed, I really enjoy listening to your voice while going over the lessons at home!)

Wishing you the best of luck and success on your new sounds so awesome!


ps - I'll be exploring Oregon later this year - if I get to your 'hood, we must do lunch or coffee or something! Your part of Oregon looks so beautiful!


Several times I planned to sign up for your workshop, but circumstances always got in the way. Sigh... I guess I'll just continue to enjoy your beautiful photography.


And I am so thankful that I first found you on Peas...then got to meet you in Utah....then your Photography class, and of course your blog and your family. We were in Oregon last May and I was just so happy to be in your "neck of the woods". It made me feel closer to you. I too still reference your notebook, and I think I will be going back and listening...just like hear your voice. Big hugs!


so bummed...hate when life gets in the way. I was planning to take your class when I returned from my vacation this year. oh, how I wish I would have signed up for the last one when I had the chance. now I have to go take a class at the community college and I'm so not happy about that but I'm desperate to learn about my camera/equipment. best of luck in all that you do, you can bet I will still be following your story :) and hope that one day, you just might teach again. any chance, you would offer an online course with no personal instruction, it doesn't hurt to ask, right? any other online classes you would recommend in the meantime?
best, angela


And she's a wonderful writer too...I am so very blessed to know you. Wishing you all the success and happiness in the world. xxooo


I am so grateful that I was able to take that workshop with you and it was really the only one that made me really have the information click in my mind. I do hope that you do one day resume teaching this workshop cause I brag about it to everyone that even mentions of taking an online class. I also thrilled to take this year long journey with you as I have already have some events happen that have had made this year already a adventure.


I am thankful that you taught the workshop! Although, I felt overwhelmed at times (mostly because of my schedule), I know you put in a whole lot of time creating the material and evaluating all the photos from all the students for all those years.
Your's, by far is THE.BEST.PHOTOGRAPY.CLASS out there!
Thank you for your dedication to teaching us :D

Your online workshop was life-changing for me. I had purchased a DSLR for a community college class I took, which left me more confused and afraid to use the camera. My husband urged me to sign up for your class and I did (summer of 2010). From the beginning it was like opening the gates of made photography fun. My husband Russell joined me as I went out and took photos for my weekly assignments. We had so much fun that I surprised him with his own DSLR camera for his birthday and that was the beginning of our "photography dates". We've done a couple of small weddings but much prefer "fine art photography". We're still photographing together and loving it. I wanted very much to be a part of your new year long photography life experience group but couldn't make it work. Thanks Karen for sharing your gift with so many. You've been such an inspiration and when our daughter deployed to Afghanistan, you were kind enough to answer some of my questions and allay some of my fears since Josh had also been deployed. Praying for your new venture and look forward to reading your blog and seeing what new things God has in store for you. Thanks again!

Brittany Van Arsdall

I am so bummed. I finally feel ready to take your class after years of blog stalking and loving your pictures. I will keep following and hope I get the chance again in the future!


Karen I feel very fortunate that God placed you into my life during one of the most difficult years of my life (the year my dad passed away) and that an accidental e-mail started a wonderful friendship that I hold near and dear to my heart. I feel blessed that I was able to take your class and I am blessed each and every time we talk. Thank you for caring so much about other people and doing God's work :) Love you my friend!

I'm so excited for you and this new road in your journey! I will always be thankful to have been a part of your class, for all that you taught me, and for meeting and becoming friends with some amazing people! I've said it before, and I'll say it again, YOU ROCK! Thanks for being you! Love you!

I am not nearly as good with words nor my camera, as you! I can't express enough how grateful I am that I met you and got hooked on your story, and your photography...then lucky enough to LEARN from you too!!! (Photographers workshop + HTW!) I tell everyone it is life changing! For me, it WAS. Im so grateful you are penned into my life as well. love you!!!!!!! xoxoxoxox

Beautifully written, Karen, as usual.
I too, am so thankful I stumbled upon your website back in the summer of 2009, as I searched the internet for a photography class. I've learned so much from you! and the (virtual) friendships I've formed with several in my class still exist today.
The other day, I spent 6.5 hours at my kids school, taking over 1000 (candid) photos of students in every classroom of the school for their yearbook. As I scrolled through the photos when I was done, I was so proud of them....and know that I could not have done that without you and your fabulous class and also that amazing Making the Shot: Focus (which is truly outstanding!).
Thanks for sharing your life with us and I hope that you do find your way back to The Photographers' Workshop. It is the best their is!

I am thankful that our paths crossed on more than one occasion, Karen. My penciled plan was to learn about photography, but I learned so much more, thanks to you. I'm looking forward to learning even more. Penned.

Life is all about timing. I never was able to take your class, however, I'm so happy you are in a spot where you are doing what it's time to for you to do! Many blessing to you. I hope you don't give up on this blogging gig. I like catching up.
