Meet the APNPI Judges!

Our next round of Accreditation is quickly approaching and we’d like to introduce you to our APNPI Judges! Judges have completed the APNPI Judges Training and are respected members of the industry spanning various styles and genres of maternity, newborn and baby photography.

Applications are now open for our QNP Certified members to apply for accreditation in one of our 10 categories. Want some support and feedback on which images would be good to submit? Consider participating in our Feedback Friday sessions where our judges critique image submissions from within our membership community group on Facebook. This is a great way to make sure your submission is ready and a wonderful way to experience image critiques before our accreditation deadline dates. Pay attention in the FB group for more information.

We look forward to reviewing your submissions with our amazing judging panel!

Submission Deadline: Jul 16th, 2024

I have been specializing in newborn photography for the past 13 years, and teaching newborn photography for the past 4 years to students around the world. My approach to newborn photography is a classic look with a rustic vibe. I love creamy skin tones and I’m a bit of a perfectionist with my work. I love helping others grow in their passion for posing and developing a sustainable business that can support their family and give them freedom to do what they love most. I’m a mother of 4 girls and have 3 fur babies. I’m a world traveler and always on the search for our next destination as a family, since spending time with them and experiencing new things is my ultimate goal in life. I’m lucky to call my passion work, but I’m even luckier that it’s given me the ultimate ability to do what I love most, and thats spend time with my kids and be there for them.
