    I love that you feature quality work that is focused on the people. That is what photography is all about, and yet I think it is forgotten sometimes in the industry. Your real approach is so refreshing.

    You guys are the best! The blog is such a great source of inspiration and the ethos of the photography featured here matches my own. Great idea to serve as an aggregator for such talent. All the best in 2012!

    Your blog is an amazing inspiration. I don’t comment much, but I love the posts that are just so REAL. It’s a constant reminder of what I strive for with my business….real people, real images, and classic memories. Thank you for reminding us of the important parts of our business!

    I love your blog(s)!!! Even if I don’t win a free listing, I would love more info on being one of your favorite photographers… assuming that I can fit into that category. ;) Thanks for all you do, ladies!!!

    I adore this blog. The amazing inspiration, the awesome photographers featured, everything. I would love to win a spot, but either way I’ll be purchasing a spot on your new venture. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love you because I love FILM, and I think it is awesome to have found a place where it is celebrated in this digital age.

    This blog is SLAM FULL of inspiration…I’m not the most well-known photographer nor the best, but I love photographing people. In the new year I hope to shoot more “stories.” I want people to celebrate life through their photos! I know that this blog is all about that:) Thanks for everything that you share!

    I just recently discovered your blog and was impressed by the talented photographers that you feature. I love looking though the images you feature. Capturing real emotion is what it’s all about. Love it! I know you all will blow up in 2012! Best wishes!!!

    I was so happy to find your blog, it certainly is an endless source of inspiration for creative portraiture. I have discovered a handful of great photogs thanks to your Let the Kids and my only request for the next year is simply – keep up the good work! Keep showing us wonderful images taken by talented people all over the world; nothing more, nothing less. It doesn’t matter whether it’s digital or film, or whether the pictures are over or underprocessed; what matters is the stories they tell are real.

    I myself have specialised in newborn photography but in 2012 hope to start a new adventure focused in honest family portraiture – so, wish me luck!

    This blog features some amazing and inspiring artists. I love coming here because I know I will find real families, real people, real photographs that are filled with emotion and real moments. I love the idea of of listing photographers with a short bio/gallery.

  11. Britty December 31, 2011 at 8:11 am #

    Let me start by saying this is the 1st blog I ever submitted my work to. Not only was it my 1st submission, it was accepted! In fact, you guys have accepted a couple of them from me. And for that, I am so very grateful. I love that you guys share a variety of photographers & their many different styles and subjects. Just keep doing what you’re doing!

  12. Rachael Brown December 31, 2011 at 9:21 am #

    because the work on here is real. its not about who can set up the best prop designed shoot. its just about people. their families. their lives. and its just a wonderful site with inspiring photography!

  13. Andreanna December 31, 2011 at 9:25 am #

    I love that every post isn’t a styled shoot, and there is a quality to your content. Excited to hear you’ve hooked up with Two Bright Lights!

    Honesty… that’s why I’ve loved you since day one. Thank you LTKDT! And cheers to 2012!

    I read/visit your blog on a daily basis. It’s so inspirational for me and I will continue to visit! :) I love that you do contests. It really gets your readers excited and coming back for more. Looking forward to seeing some more awesome images in 2012 :) My goal is to be featured on your blog this coming year…hope I can make that happen! Happy New Year!

    Love that you promote capturing real moments–some times messy or blurry, but always sweetly magical. I smile every time I read your blog’s name.
    Your support of film artists is so appreciated. I now bring a film camera to all my projects (contax aria or leica mp) along side my digital. The glass I have for those let me shape things in ways I love. I get braver using them without the safety net.
    New blog and portfolio coming in my my new home of Boston.
    Happy New Year!!

    i love your site. i love that its REAL. i love that its something new and different. i love all your contests because it helps us, photographers, step out of our comfort zone. You guys have created a great community of amazing photographers and I’m excited to see what you will bring in 2012.

    I’ve already registered and paid for the listing so I don’t need a freebie, but I just wanted to say thanks for featuring me this year and thanks for featuring all the other really awesome photographers you do. It was an aim of mine to do a shoot which I thought was good enough for your site so the site has really pushed me to strive further. The work on here is inspiring.

  22. debbie mcgeroge January 1, 2012 at 7:00 am #

    Love your style and feel that you match me as an artist. There are many blogs out there but you can really feel the passion and the love by the artists you feature! I would love to be part of it! My goal for this holiday season is submit an post to you guys but not it’s a New Year’s Resolution :-)

  23. Lauren Kaye January 1, 2012 at 11:39 am #

    I love visiting your site, you always find photos that bring a smile to my day, and I get inspired all the time to be even better. Thanks!

  24. Amy January 1, 2012 at 4:13 pm #

    Since the beginning, I’ve loved that you featured honest, creative photography. I’d love to see more photographer interviews, but keep doing everything you’re already doing, too. :)

  25. Kristopher Orr January 1, 2012 at 11:25 pm #

    I like your blog because it has some pretty good photography on it and it’s run by two of the Coolest ladies I know. I would like to see more….umm…..Gah….I don’t know. I literally don’t know. Its great!

  26. Noelle Reynolds January 2, 2012 at 7:06 am #

    Your blog is a breath of fresh air! You ladies are awesome and I wish I was a part of your awesome ladies circle. :) Keep it up and I can’t wait to see what 2012 holds for Let the Kids!

  27. amy January 2, 2012 at 9:09 am #

    your site inspires, breathes life, has its own rhythm, and supports the kind of photographers who really see the beauty all around them. one of these days, i will get my act together and submit something. what an honor it would be…your mission is wonderful, real and so appreciated. best to ‘let the kids’ and all of its truly gifted contributors in the new year!

  28. Merari January 3, 2012 at 3:20 am #

    your site is a breath of fresh air. It’s very difficult to find inspiration of genuine, breath-taking family portrait work online and your site is packed with it.

  29. Cara January 3, 2012 at 7:48 am #

    This is awesome! Your blog is an inspiration! I love seeing sessions that are different and real. Keeps the creativity flowing.

  30. Mary B January 3, 2012 at 9:41 am #
