Stephanie Robin and Cara Dawn came together in 2015 to create an organization focused on the needs of newborn photographers. Having been active members of other prominent organizations, they understood the need for tailored content and set out to create a welcoming and diverse space.

With their backgrounds in physiotherapy and teaching respectively, Stephanie and Cara put their heads together to create programming focused on the development of safe handling techniques and the acquisition of base technical skills for every photographer. APNPI now offers a safety course, qualified newborn photographer certification, accreditation programming and designations along with twice yearly image competitions.
