Kristen Noel, motivational writer, speaker and Editor-In-Chief of Best Self Magazine, has gained a devout following for her keeping-it-real, dust-off-and-carry-on approach to re-scripting your life. She believes that anyone, regardless of their circumstances, can shift their life if they are willing to own their role in everything that has led to this moment — the good, the bad and the ugly.
Full disclosure: Kristen is my partner in life and business, so I’ve come to know her rather well. She likes great music. Inspiring books. Walks in the woods. Matche lattes. And — good light. Shooting her is like having a little lighting assistant standing on my shoulder, reminding me to get the reflectors just right. It’s also a true joy, because through collaboration, we push each other to achieve something beyond what we could do on our own. And for that, I’m deeply grateful.
