Well, hello there!
My name is Christina Marie Noel and I became a photographer because I wanted to do work that helped people feel "seen."
Great photography can be a game-changer in helping you take your personal brand to the next level. I also think it's important to capture the pivotal moments in life - your new side hustle, your growing family, your kid's graduation, and the list goes on... and I enjoy being there to capture these big moments.
I'm committed to helping you share your story and whatever it is that matters most to you in this world.
I will take photos of you that feel like "you." I think real smiles are better than forced ones and I want to capture you in your element.
I know that getting in front of a camera can make the best of us nervous (myself included), but please don't worry. If there is one thing I can guarantee, it's that I'll do everything in my power to make the process fun and easy!
We'll decide what location we'll take photos at based on what you're passionate about and what will feel most like "you." From there, I'm happy to help coach you on everything from what to wear to how to get your hair "did," so you look flawless for your shoot.
A little bit about me:
I was born & raised in North Carolina.
My friends often compare me to Leslie Knope from Parks & Recs and I’m totally ok with it.
I played flute in a Cuban salsa band in college.
I live in North Raleigh with my husband, Jason, our crazy Australian Blue Heeler, Shadow, and our fluffy Himalayan cat, Sophie. Our dog and cat do not get along.
If first learned how to take portraits by starting a storytelling project where I took photos of and interviewed people who have changed the world. You can get inspired and read their stories for free at www.wearethearcbenders.com.
I'm passionate about giving back. My company is a social enterprise that donates 5% of all of our profits to charities in the Triangle, so when you work with us, you’re helping make our community better.
I'm also a Marketing Strategist, Business Coach, & Keynote Speaker! You can learn more about the rest of my work at www.christinamarienoel.com.
As a photographer, I specialize in Brand Photography. Nothing makes me happier than helping you take your personal brand or business to the next level. Taking not-so-corporate headshots is one of my favorite things to do. I especially love working with mission-driven innovators and entrepreneurs.
I'm also a sucker for capturing memories, so if you want to capture new family photos or you have a graduating senior in high school or college, I've got you covered.
My style is a mix of lifestyle, photojournalism, and “organic.” I think photos are best when they are natural and authentically you.
