    Kara – I am a fellow photographer who has struggled FOR YEARS trying to come up with a brand that represents me and what i want others to see and feel when they see my work or visit my site. It wasn’t until yesterday when I saw your “new design” that I finally felt some direction…and purpose to what I want my brand to feel like. I think I have always focused on how it looked and not how it felt. For some reason that just happened yesterday! Which is super exciting and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE the opportunity to work with you. I literally just finished creating a new branding board on pinterest this morning before I even saw this…fate…I think so 🙂

    I’ve had 3 knee surgeries these past 3 years and I’ve been avoiding the camera during this time due to my weight gain and just not feeling like myself. This past June I started a new “health(ier) eating lifestyle” and my goal is to feel like myself again by 1/2016. This would be a great way to celebrate! Bottom line though, my husband and I LOVE your work 🙂

    I forgot to say why I would love to win! :). I have admired your work for a long time. It would be amazing to have your work hang in our home!

    Wow Kara! What an amazing giveaway! Well, obviously this would be an incredible package for anyone to win, but clearly I hope to be the random one chosen! Several years ago we had our engagement pictures done by you, which are still some of our very favorite pictures ever, but due to a change in venue (i.e. state!) we ended up not moving forward with having you as our wedding photography. Insert broken heart. While I do love the wedding photos we got, I really will always wonder what they could’ve been with you to capture all the special moments. Cheers to an exciting new launch!

    As a photographer and momtrepreneur I struggle with setting aside time for my own family to go on vacations and taking family portraits. A vacation to Arizona and shoot with you would be divine!!!

    I am always in need of photos of my cute girls! And since we’re having ANOTHER baby in a few months it would be fun to either do some maternity photos or to wait till we have the baby to get some photos of that sweetness!

    You did my friends engagement/wedding/family portraits and because of how beautiful your work is, I bought a camera. I definitely do not have your vision but it has been fun to learn something new. My boyfriend and I have been together for almost 5 years and it would be a dream to get photos taken by you for our anniversary. Fingers crossed!

    Lovely lady…I would love to win! We haven’t had family pictures done since 2012 which means nothing professional for Gracie since she was a 3 month old…and since then, our focus has been paying off nearly $95K in debt which has meant that all extras have had to wait. We are a couple of years away yet before we can splurge and while I know that’s part of the plan, it would really make my day to win this beautiful session with you 🙂

    Well… we need updated family photos!!!!! We have a whole wall of pictures you’ve taken of our family. We need more. No one has your eye and personal touch! We keep coming back!!!

    I am due the end of November with my first little one, and the thought of having family photos to remember this special time in our lives while he is so young would be amazing!
    Congratulations on your launch, it all looks so great 🙂

    What an amazing opportunity for someone! I cherish the photos you took of our family when our daughter was one and then again at two. I am in desperate need of updated family photos…she is now almost 8 years old!! Something that I love about your blog is how you share your family stories and personal images with all of us. The pictures of the “little things” or the “ordinary” are what make your pictures so memorable to me. I love your style of photography and it has been a pleasure working with you in the past and I hope to again one day. 🙂

    I would love to win because it has been about 3 years since our last family photo shoot (that you did!) and it’s time, especially since our four grandchildren are growing up so quickly! Also, considering I nearly lost my husband 5 months ago, I realize how important it is to capture those memories as often as you can.

    Your work moves me and speaks to my soul. Our last family photos were taken mid 2013. I’m often behind the camera capturing photos for fun, but the last few years I’ve undergone numerous dental and oral surgeries that make smiling a whole new level of challenging…. so behind the camera has become my safe zone. I just had my last (knock on wood) big surgery and once I’ve recovered it it would be the most amazing gift to have you capture my family.
