Just had to take a minute to share the news! I am officially certified! I passed the image review! I was so nervous! And when I didn't hear anything for several weeks I thought I failed but apparently my husband intercepted my certificate from the mail, had it framed and gave it to me for Christmas. I was wondering what was taking so long. Gosh it feels so good to be recognized by people who's work I admire!

Next step......Masters Degree!!!

Hi Kelly;

That is great news ... I'm very happy to hear that. Remember that you can also go for the Craftsman Degree. As a newly minted C.P.P., you can now look at venues where you can teach. You will start checking your PPA Merit Record often from now on.

Also, please start posting scores and comments in the certification section of the Gallery.

Along with my certification certificate, the PPA sends along brochures that explain to potential clients why certification sets a photographer apart from all the rest....I just used one this afternoon during a consultation with a potential client. She was extremely impressed and booked on the spot! It really does matter especially to the type of clients I am trying book.

Thanks to everyone for the congrats....I wish I could be at the convention this year but we have two kids in college, a husband who works at Ford (at least for now ) and we live in Michigan...need I say more?
