25 May May 2021 Inspired Magazine: Featuring Carolyn Ann Ryan!
The May issue of Inspired is HERE!
Summer happiness is right around the corner! Break out the beach chairs and stock up on sunscreen as we gear up to enjoy the glorious summer ahead. Whether you decide to spend your days lounging by the pool, picking up a new hobby or embarking on fun adventures, we hope you all have the opportunity to spend quality time reconnecting with loved ones and friends during sunny summer days.
We are pleased to introduce May’s Featured Artist: Carolyn Ann Ryan of Carolyn Ann Ryan Photography! Based in Charlotte, N.C, Carolyn is an accomplished award-winning photographer who was recently announced as our 2020 Photographer of the Year! As an incredible creative visionary, Carolyn continues to represent the NAPCP community with professional integrity and commitment to being an exemplary ambassador and loyal friend to many!
Be sure to take a moment to read this month’s featured article, My Journey with Chronic Pain: How a 365 Project Saved My Life. Dawn Alexander of Freckleface Photography bares it all as she describes how her passion for photography has paved the path to a more positive life when dealing with chronic pain resulting from a life-changing accident. Stemming from a passion project in the wedding photography business, Dawn continuously advances her photography skills which recently lead to Master Photography Certifications in the Child and Baby categories.
Master Photographer Certification in the Family category is now closed but stay tuned for upcoming updates and announcements. The Maternity category will open on July 5, and we look forward to seeing your submissions of glowing new and expecting mothers!
