After waiting a long 17 days I got the news last week that I was accepted into the CMpro community at Clickin Moms! I set a goal last spring that I was going to apply for this certification by the end of 2015 and I did. I had to submit a 150 image portfolio that went up for review by other CMpro members, women that are exceptional in the field of photography. I was nervous and intimidated by the process. There is nothing like having your work reviewed on such an intense level. But I knew I would never grow on a professional level if I didn’t go for it.
Clickin Moms describes CMpro as:
“CMpro is a women’s organization of professional photographers and highly skilled artists whose work demonstrates creativity, vision, and artistic and technical excellence….
The images produced by CMpros are second to none. We critically evaluate the portfolios of CMpro applicants for technical excellence, personal style, and artistic vision. Less than 30% of photographers who apply to CMpro are accepted.”
Needless to say I am honored and proud to be a part of this amazing group of artists. This was an important step in my photography career because it defines the standards that I try to uphold in my work.
While I still have so much to learn this was quite the accomplishment! Check out my CMpro profile here:
