Photography is something I have always had a passion for. Growing up my mom always had a camera in her hand. I mean literally we have thousands of picture of my family. So I guess you can say photography runs in the family.
The first time I thought about making a career in photography was probably when I was in middle school. I watched the movie Step Mom and Julia Roberts character with a photographer. I know it's weird but I loved that movie and I loved how in the end her photography brought them all together. So when I was in High School I got a job at a photography studio at the mall. I really did love it, but thought I could never make money doing it.
After graduation, I decided I was going to go to school for Medical Assisting. I completed my degree, began my career and realized I was missing something.
In 2012 I started Chrissy Noel Photography on the side to see what I could do. It was hard but I made it work because I really loved it. In 2014 I quit my nursing job and started CNP full time and I'm the happiest I have ever been. The business is thriving and I'm gaining new skills everyday. Moral of the story "Never give up on your dream, follow your heart and take a leap of faith. You may surprise yourself."
