Always learning. Never settle. Be open to change.

Just a month ago one of my dear friends left her full-time corporate job and has begun to do freelance work in her field of expertise. She has a background in communications and PR and has worked mostly for the entertainment industry. We finally have time together to catch up and it has been fun to work at the office, aka. Starbucks. The first time we chatted for hours, and the times after we have been working. Every time I have learned a little something new about the world of business and communications and that leads perfectly to what I was reading this morning in my devotions.

This morning I was lead to read Proverbs 12. For years now I have read the Proverb that corresponds to the day of the week, not always religiously, but many times a week. This day I read Proverbs 12:1a in a new light. “Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge”. I am soaking up all that I have been learning about writing and wording things in a professional manner to unknown parties, but have I been embracing it? Have I been “loving” it and been passionate to change the old way I have approached this? To some degree, but I don’t know if I can put the word “passionate” to my dedication to learning this new and better way to proceed in business.

So with that, I resolve to make changes. I resolve to learn to better my understanding of this craft and to use this to not only better myself, but better my skills as a person, a business owner and a teacher.

So a huge shout out to my dear friend Brandii and her awesome skills and gifting to explain things to me in a way that is transforming me. You are awesome, you are a great friend and I thank you for all the times we now get to spend together. Coffee’s on me next time.

And if you are looking for someone to write a press release or do any PR work, contact me and I will pass along her information. She truly is top notch at what she does.  Click here to view Brandii’s Linked-In profile.


Best thank you note ever!

A few weeks ago I received the most amazing thank you note and letter of recommendation from Stacie Johnson. It was coming up on the anniversary of their wedding and I was planning for not only a bridal show but also an update to my website and she was one of the people I had asked for their a recommendation that I could use on my website.

What I didn’t expect was to get a letter that brought tears to my eyes.

“When we chose Noelle to capture our wedding day, we had no idea that we would begin with a talented photographer and end with a friend. From the beginning she took the time to not only learn what shots we wanted for the big day, but she also learned about us personally. We wanted to see the emotion and relationships come through in our photos and she worked tirelessly to capture the feel and depth of this season of our lives.

We began with a wonderfully fun day for our engagement pictures. She came prepared to tailor make our shots, highlighting those special little moments that remind us of all that we share in our marriage. We love to dance and read together and Noelle found unique ways to use these things to capture our image and our heart.

Our wedding day itself could not have been more perfect. Noelle showed professionalism, integrity and amazing skill in reproducing the day on film. Our photos actually looked like they came from a magazine, but still retained the personal touch of the warmth of family and friends. We could not love our prints, canvas, and album any more! Her work is just amazing!

More than anything, we have so appreciated how excited she has been for us. Her generosity and warmth were a great relief to what otherwise could have been an overwhelming time in our lives. You can’t go wrong with her on your wedding and her work for years to come.”

Thank you so much To you both, your wedding experience was such a pleasure to cover, and your friendship is a treasured and unexpected blessing. May God richly bless you both in your marriage and I hope that reading the letters you wrote to each other was a sweet memory of the day you became man and wife just one year ago.
