"PPA has opened my world to the most amazing network of colleagues and friends. The people I have met in our industry through various PPA affiliated events have now become family. They have educated, pushed, cheered me on, and elevated my business throughout the years. After 5 years of working as a full-time photographer, I knew that I needed something to separate myself from the rest. I have always had the little voice of doubt in the back of my mind that I needed to distinguish myself. I needed to prove to myself, no one else, that I was where I was meant to be. So I signed up for a pre-convention class at Imaging USA and the rest is history.
Earning my CPP has given me more confidence in my daily work, it has pushed me to continue in print competition to further my degrees under the PPA. If you’re thinking about getting your CPP, do it. Make the commitment, learn all you can, and enjoy the process. Is it easy? No. But worth it. Oh and P.S. Don’t hate on Sherman.
My creativity is inspired by so many things...My colleagues for their undying support; Lighting...lots of different lighting patterns; Clouds…bright, billowy, stormy; Any type of sports and the surfaces that are intertwined within those arenas. I mean how many women photographers get excited about a natural green grass ball field with storm clouds rolling in above?! First and foremost, you need to love what you do and I have the privilege of doing just that. But the need to stay a photographer is that feeling you get when you hand your client an image that froze a moment in time. That recorded their life and hopefully made an heirloom for generations to come."
