This is a cause for celebration! Not to long ago, I was accepted as a member of the National Association of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP). I really haven't been doing photography for all that long, and for the NAPCP to look at my website, portfolio and work and ultimately decide that I measured up to other amazingly talented photographers out there, was thrilling for me! The NAPCP has been a great resource for me already. I have been able to learn from other very talented photographers, as well as share my knowledge. I look forward to every new session I have and the chance to see how much I've grown with the wealth of info I've inherited from this group.
Hiring a NAPCP member to take your family and/or children's photos, ensures that you are hiring a photographer with a lot of expertise and talent...not to brag or anything ;) But they do promote their photographers in that light. So it's pretty awesome! Check out the NAPCP website - http://www.napcp.com/.
