A Word from the President

Dear Photographer,

I'm looking forward to getting to know you better in 2020!

While you will be receiving periodic email updates on events and happenings, please join us in our Facebook group "IPPG" to keep up to date on the most current information and to engage with our members and friends! 

If I can be of any help, please feel free to reach out to me at sarah@photographybysarahcrail.com
