Maternity Portrait Accreditation Submission - Liisa Sefton Images

Awarded April 2017 - Ottawa, Ontario

An Accreditation is achieved by submitting ten images in a chosen category to a PPOC Board of Review. All ten images must be accepted by a panel of national judges for it to be awarded. The judges consider the following criteria: Impact, Creativity, Style, Composition, Presentation, Color Balance, Centre of Interest, Lighting, Subject Matter, Quality, Technique, and Story Telling.  Here are the ten images I submitted for my Children & Infant Portrait Accreditation.


Criteria: Images relating to the pre-natal stage of life, these storytelling images should depict the sensitive nature of pending motherhood. Ten (10) images of ten (10) different subjects, from ten (10) different sessions are required and should have enough variety in the submission to show the photographer’s creative and technical ability. 3/4 and full length poses, couples interacting, figure images, and close-up details should all be represented.
