Professional Child Photographers, Their Amazing Work & The Winner Of NAPCP’s Competition

Photography whether it be traditional, digital or smart phone driven is a big passion of mine but only became so after I had children. I wanted to capture every, single, moment of their lives which in turn caused me to take photography a little more seriously. A family, children, babies, mothers, fathers, they are all subjects that I never tire of photographing.

The National Association of Professional Child Photographers, an organization whose mission is to promote and support the artistry and integrity of professional child photographers. Today they announced the winners of their fifth annual NAPCP Image Competition as well as its 2012 Child Photographer of the Year. The photo pictured above is called “Daddy’s Girl” and was taken by Sandy Summers Russel of Summerland Photography. The competition has 8 category subjects including maternity, newborn, babies, children, sibling, seniors and tweens, family and toddlers.

The winning photo you see above will be featured on an electronic billboard in New York City’s Time Square. What an honor! For more information on NAPCP, their retreats and this fun competition, please visit their website.
