In July of this year I applied to become a qualified newborn photographer (QNP) through the Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International (APNPI). I’m going to be honest, I didn’t think I would pass the first time I tried.
The application process included answering questions and submitting over two full galleries worth of images. I had to display skills in lighting techniques, camera functions, and artistic composition. I also had to show that I was able to consistently produce high quality images through a variety of circumstances.
Over the past few weeks, I have been periodically checking in on the status of my submission. This past Thursday, I was surprised to see “Congratulations on a successful QNP submission!”. I couldn’t believe my eyes. It didn’t seem real. How could I have actually passed?
From the official press release:
“The Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International (APNPI) is proud to
announce Brittany Lytle of Joyful Moments Photography, Galloway, OH, US, as a Qualified Newborn
Photographer certificate recipient. Brittany Lytle’s successful submission was chosen along with a select
number of others deserving of the QNP title placing them amongst an elite group of photographers
worldwide who currently hold QNP certifications.”
