If there’s one thing we all have in common, it’s that we just LOVE newborns!

APNPI formed out of a passion to give professional recognition to Newborn Photographers, and to connect through a safe and respectful place for everyone to grow, learn, and thrive as small businesses.

Our vision is to create a vibrant international community of professionally recognized and certified Newborn Photographers by providing opportunities to earn professional credentials to those who are dedicated to excellence in their craft and success in their business.  Equal opportunity is at the core of our beliefs.  We do not discriminate against people with disabilities and/or people of visual minority ethnicities.

Our Mission is to bring professional recognition to newborn photographers and awareness to the public through:

  • educating the public on the value and high standards of APNPI certifications and designations, thereby giving professional recognition to APNPI Newborn Photographers.
  • leading the way in educating newborn photographers in business, safety, and artistic newborn portraiture.
  • APNPI endeavours to provide a safe and diverse community for all photographers.
