Have you ever wondered how images are judged?
Our premiere Image Competition Round Two broadcast date is finally here!
APNPI encourages participation in competition as a means of challenging, learning and growing in the art of newborn photography. Competition with constructive critique drives photographers to a new level in honing their craft, and contributes toward their Masters Designations. It’s also an exciting opportunity to gain world wide recognition!
We’ll be airing our pre-recorded Image Competition Judging Event today and You’ll have access to the replays for 48 hours.
Best of luck to all of our members who have submitted their images!

Autumn Skoczen – I am Autumn, owner of Ellie Mellie Photography! I have been a photographer for 5 years, having found my passion for newborn and maternity work as the first stepping stones of what started my business. Editing is something I really enjoy, and can get lost in photoshop for hours out of pure enjoyment! We are based out of Cleveland Ohio, and offer not only photography but in-person newborn safety classes, shooting, editing and posing workshops and will host shootouts from time to time as well. I am the proud mom of 2 boys, Auguste and Atreyu (yes from never-ending story!) and am engaged to their dad ( after ten years together)…. to be married July 2020. <3
Corrie Michael – Hi! I am Corrie and I am a Canadian Newborn, Family and Maternity portrait photographer. After spending an enormous amount of money on an education to work in a corporate office somewhere, I picked up a camera along the way and ended up here……..photographing beautiful families and mentoring other photographers. Life has a superb way of gently pushing you down the path you need to be on.
I am a Wife and a Mom to four wonderful little humans who keep me busy and fill my days with fun and laughter. Having children and watching them grow from being so tiny one day to climbing on the bus the next, I understand the need to document these times. Capturing families and these fleeting moments is the heart of it for me. I am so lucky to have been photographing families for over 5 years now and have been blessed to have photographed over 500 newborns with all their squishy goodness.
