A wise business women once told me that there are 100's of people in my town alone that call themselves filmmakers/videographers, heck, EVERYBODY and their mother has an iPhone with more videos than they know what to do with.  So, in the sea of video peeps, why would somebody hire Sweet Rain Media?

The answer she gave was brilliant...nobody sees the world like I do, nobody captures life like I do.

People hire me for me and that there are hundreds of photographers and/or filmmakers in my area that people can hire for photos and videos, but they choose to hire Sweet Rain Media because of ME, the girl behind the camera...and what I bring the life zeal for life and love of people and my keen sense of capturing life in a way that only I can do.  

So, without further ado, here is the first in a series of blog posts about what makes Sweet Rain Media tick...the girl behind the camera....Noelle.

I thought it fitting that it start with one of my favorite things ever....COFFEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

I love coffee. A lot. LIke a lot lot. As in, its right up there in importance to breathing. LOL

Don’t get in my way of the coffee machine in the morning. The second I wake up, its where I stumble. I could do the walk of shame with my eyes closed.  If you try to talk to me before I take my first sip, you will either be completely ignored or stared down with major stink-eye. 

If I am out of coffee, you better WATCH OUT.....things are about to get ugly up in here.  You will hear me yell “noooooooooooooooooooooo” at the top of my lungs and think there is an actual emergency.  I have been known to actually cry in desperation if the last coffee pod was consumed and not replaced.  This is serious stuff here people.  Like life or death. I then immediately drive to my neighborhood Starbucks, where “everybody knows my name”. Ten points if you can name that tune. 

Grande vanilla lattes make everything better in the world. the very first sip is like a little piece of heaven in my mouth. I know where every Starbucks on the island is and often use them as landmarks to find my way around town.

Ok, gotta go....I need a asap...catch ya next week.
