Summing yourself up on a bio page is always pretty weird, right?
Ok, let's see. We'll start with my name. I'm Jenni, and I'm the author behind this here blog. I love to write and always have, and born from that love was this silly little space on the Internet.
I live in Austin, TX and run J. Noel Photography full time. I never would have guessed I'd be a photographer when I grew up, but life takes us on funny adventures, and here I find myself really in love with my work, and I know that's something to be so grateful for.
This blog was born back in September of 2010 when I was fresh out of college and essentially a housewife for a while (and not a very good one, at that), and since then it has changed and morphed and grown right alongside me. For a while it was a source of income, and then as my photography took off, the blog took a back seat and now it's more just-for-fun. I'll never forget, though, how much I owe to blogging. It really helped me come into myself, if you will, and opened up a world of creativity and friendship that never existed for me before.
I'm a bit of a homebody and love spending time with my husband and our two dogs Gracie and Cooper, which we are obsessed with. We frighten ourselves daily with the level of dog-obsession we have reached.
We also love nothing more than a delicious meal and pretty much live to try new restaurants. I do a lot of around-Austin posts, if you're interested in some recommendations around the city!
