HI! Wonderful job on your photos! I have to ask because I just love the backdrop in the large family photo… is it in fact, a backdrop?? Where could I find one similar?

 ( Apr 4th, 2011 9:00 pm)

Hi Vera,
I don’t think we will be doing another one this year:( I’m sorry we would love to have you!

 ( Mar 11th, 2011 6:42 am)

Wow…i would so looooove to attend one of these…the problem is i’m all the way in Germany :/ will you guys, by any chance, be doing another one in November? We will possibly be coming over to visit my family in Cali. thnx :)

 ( Mar 10th, 2011 8:36 am)

Yes!!! Videos!!! a DVD…that would be amazing. :)

 ( Mar 9th, 2011 10:10 pm)

Yeah! I’m glad she got to see snow! Did she love it!?

 ( Mar 9th, 2011 4:18 am)

Hi Sophia,
We have talked about it but nothing in the works yet:)

 ( Mar 9th, 2011 4:17 am)

Would you consider creating and selling a series of video tutorials, based on your workshops, that would cover equipment, lighting, posing, etc? For those of us who can’t travel this would be extremely convenient.

 ( Mar 9th, 2011 2:31 am)
Tracey Leigh 

Well my daughter got her wish before we leave – SNOW! And… just in time LOL we leave tomorrow (Tues) afternoon. Went to TP and pretty much tried to put the entire store in my shopping basket. I ended up having to ship two huge boxes AND buy an extra suitcase. BTW why is it that I am the only one that looks like a total creeper in the Saturday group photo? Looks like someone just PS’d my head onto Carilee’s shoulder. This further supports my belief that I belong behind a camera.

When I shot Brooks as a newborn he was gorgeous and has only gotten cuter! Got his cute tie from: www.taylorjoelle.com


Hi Sowmia-I love these hats. I got them from knucklehead clothing.

 ( Jun 29th, 2011 4:14 am)

Holy moly! I just discovered your work recently and can’t tear myself away from your AMAZING photos! This posting touched a particular chord since I just had a little boy. Could you share where you got these adorable hats? I’m struggling to find vintage style things for boys.

 ( Jun 28th, 2011 11:42 pm)

Hi Korie,
If you come to our workshop you will get a book with all the pictures on how to make the frames and are set up in the studio:)

 ( Mar 7th, 2011 12:15 am)
Korie Nordstrom 

Hey Katie,
Can you please show us what the frames look like that your hubby makes to staple the backdrops to? And how do they stay upright? Do you just lean them up against the wall behind the platform or do you have a little hook at the top or something to keep them from falling over?? Thanks so much Katie, you are awesome at what you do!

 ( Feb 28th, 2011 4:44 pm)
Becky Eastman 

You always have the most beautiful colors and soft tones in your work. I just love it.

 ( Feb 27th, 2011 12:02 am)

Adorable! I tried to find that tie on the website you listed but couldn’t find it. Any idea why it wouldn’t be listed seeing as this was such a recent photo shoot and all? I’d love to get it for my little guy.

 ( Feb 23rd, 2011 7:34 am)

I’m pregnant with my third which is a boy, I already have two girls. I can’t wait to get these types of shots with my son. Thanks for the AWESOME blog

Anita Elmore 

I have to admit, I’m subscribed to your reader feed and for a long time I have just looked and admired your photographs but upon seeing your photographs of this adorable little man I couldn’t resist popping in to tell you how wonderful of a job you do! …and what a handsome little subject you have here!!! Usually, my favorites are the ones you take of your own kiddos….they are SOOOOO photogenic!!!….and this little guy ranks right up there with them! I know that you have your own reasons for sharing your work, but I want to thank you for doing so and let you know just how much joy your photos bring to others (read: me, LoL) You ROCK woman!

Hugs and Blessings,
