Message from the President, Deb Bettencourt
Well, Winter has arrived in stunning fashion!Now we’ve got the first major snowfall out of the way and we can focus on last minute sessions, shopping and social events. Bring it on!We are saddened to report that three New England photographers and friends passed away recently. Our own Raymond Fuller died on November 6th. Nancy Holowitz from Springfield died on October 25th, and Roland Laramie of Connecticut passed on November 23rd. As I read their obituaries it struck me how much each of these people contributed to the photographic community. They taught, they volunteered, they gave back. If you were fortunate to work with them you know what I mean. If you have been mentored by another local photographer there’s a good chance they learned from one of these professionals.As you read this newsletter I hope you’ll take a moment to read about our Un-Convention-al programming in 2020. We’re excited to mix up the traditional three day conference footprint, while continuing to bring you quality programming and a chance for bragging rights from Image Competition! Details are being firmed up now.While wrapping up 2019 I would be remiss not to thank the members who have dedicated time, energy and talent to keeping our Association running by participating on our Board. Without people who heed the call to Pay It Forward we would not exist. We always welcome new volunteers, either to fill a Board Position or to help on a particular project or program. You’ll get so much more than you give when you volunteer. Reach out to me with questions or ideas.Happy and Healthy Holidays to everyone.Thanks!Debbi

Upcoming PPARI Events
Kim Fuller’s Where Image Impact & Mindfulness Intersect focused on how you can be more present for your clients, understand them better, and then come away with authentic images, not your preconceived vision of the session. We preceded the program with a chance to dine and network together.
2019 Holiday Party!
