It’s my Birthday and I’ll post what I want to…

So…I’m totally going to do something I’ve never done before!

Hopefully this is ok…I want your help! While I was at WPPI in Vegas my room-mates and I did a little “photoshoot” and I got some profile pictures for my website and Facebook. In tribute to my favorite TV show American Idol, I’m want you to pick your favorite and tell me which should be my next profile pix.

SO…These are the ones I think best capture me and who I am as a photographer.







My dimple is so embarrassing!







Now…I took these other ones thinking I wanted to show a more serious side to me. I CAN’T PULL IT OFF TO SAVE MY LIFE!!! But, I thought it would be good for a laugh 🙂 ENJOY!









My husband thinks they are HOT but not the right pictures for my portfolio. He’s right! He’s almost always right!

Do I look 33? Don’t leave me hanging…if you’ve never commented before today is your day!

The 6th one!! I like the 6th one!

I love reading your blog and have been thinking about getting into photography more seriously for a while now. I love taking pictures, but just taking that first step is hard!

And Happy Birthday by the way!!! You look beautiful, that’s how old you look. 🙂

Melissa - March 5, 2009 - 11:09 am

I love the first one, its so natural and pretty!

KS Dallas - March 5, 2009 - 11:22 am

Happy Birthday!

I like #1 and #5 – the b&w side profiles.

I really liked your “serious” pics, too.

Good luck picking one!

Joy - March 5, 2009 - 11:36 am

Ok, I like the first one and the fifth most. 🙂
Greetings from austria!


Carrie - March 5, 2009 - 1:42 pm

Happy Birthday!

I vote for #5 but they are all great.

Jenny - March 5, 2009 - 2:12 pm

My favorite is the third one down. The one in color where you’re looking up. It’s gorgeous!

Jenny - March 5, 2009 - 2:13 pm

Oh, and Happy Birthday!!

Noemi - March 5, 2009 - 2:34 pm

I’m realizing now that I should’ve put numbers beside each one…I’m going to fix that!

Eryn - March 5, 2009 - 2:45 pm

I like 2 and 6. Your smile just rocks! Adriah has it too! All I can do is serious because I have a Jay Leno chin that sticks out too far when I smile. Its no good!

Jo - March 5, 2009 - 2:48 pm

I like #2, #4, and #6. You look beautiful in all of them, but I like these especially! 🙂

Heather - March 5, 2009 - 2:48 pm

ok…so 1 and 7 are my favorite! 🙂 Hope you had a fantastic birthday!!

Cathleen - March 5, 2009 - 2:52 pm

Wow! These are amazing. I am torn. My first response was #1 but you look like a model in #7 & #10 is my favorite. I love #10. I love your red hair. But then again you are always smiling so maybe that captures who you are. I don’t know. I’d still go with #10 b/c it’s also very artsy.

Beka - March 5, 2009 - 3:10 pm

Noemi, I can see a lot of similarity to your sisters in these pics, I don’t know if I’ve ever seen much of that before!

So, well they are all gorgeous! For reals, not just saying that. But I have to pick one?
Umm, I think number 4 captures a lot of great emotions, not too silly, not too serious, you’re looking up…, it looks classy and elegant but still fun. Yeah, I think that is the best.

But number 5 is a close runner up!

Carol - March 5, 2009 - 3:23 pm

I think 2 is the “you-est.” 3 is stunning. Hello Vogue. But for a profile I love the look-you-in-the-eye of 5.

Cindy - March 5, 2009 - 3:29 pm

#5 looks most like the Noemi I remember….
Happy birthday, girl!

April - March 5, 2009 - 3:31 pm

This was hard because you look great!!!! BUT, 1, 3 and 6 really stood out!

Melissa - March 5, 2009 - 3:33 pm

I like number 6. It has a fun side to you..

Steph - March 5, 2009 - 3:39 pm

I like #1 & 5…this is totally the smile I remember when I met you at the workshop! Still lovin’ your blog:) Keep up the good work. And I like the serious ones too but have to go for the smile!

Pamela - March 5, 2009 - 4:05 pm

Happy birthday Noemi. My birthday is on the 12th… and as one Pisces to another I would go for number 2 because I think in that one you can look through your eyes into your soul and I think it is a lovely foto of you. I always look at eyes and hands when I meet people for the first time… is that a Pisces thing?
Anyway I hope you have a wonderful day and a fantastic New Year.

greetings from Amsterdam,

Pamela Busnach

Poly - March 5, 2009 - 4:39 pm

Happy birthday! The pics look awesome! I like the first one, the third one and the last one! Good luck picking!

Hannah - March 5, 2009 - 4:42 pm

#2 or #4

Happy Birthday, Noemi!

Kendra Christiansen - March 5, 2009 - 4:44 pm

I vote #4! It’s my fav!

Gracie Parks - March 5, 2009 - 4:47 pm

Do I have to pick just one???!!! I think 2 is my fav. It just makes me happy. Although, I really like 5 and 6. And OH, if you ever decide to sing for a living, 7 should be on the cover of your CD. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Janine from WV - March 5, 2009 - 5:17 pm

I LOVE the last one. You look beautiful in it. They are all good but I really like that one. You pulled off being “serious” way better than I can. I love reading your blog. You give me much to “ponder” ha,ha. Have a superfantastic birthday!!

Ria - March 5, 2009 - 5:43 pm

Noemi! You are gorgeous inside and OUT… wow!

I enjoy reading your blogs every now and then and I am glad I checked it out today 🙂

I think that numbers 1,6,10 are my favorites! I really like 4 too, very chic!

Ria Lenzen

Julia - March 5, 2009 - 6:35 pm

You are so beautiful my friend! Happy Birthday!
#1 and 5 and are my favorites. I think I like them because they feel very genuine to me and show your infectious smile. They just look like my friend Noemi to me without trying to be too artsy or super creative (although you are both of those things!)

Oh, and Peter has a vote too – he thinks 1 & 5 are the best too, and he’s not just agreeing with me! He actually picked those before I told him my choices!
So the Chapmans have now voted!

Love you friend!

Noemi - March 5, 2009 - 6:50 pm

THIS IS AWESOME! Keep ’em coming! I can’t believe all the different opinions!

Rachel - March 5, 2009 - 8:13 pm

#5, hands down (and I’m an expert, right?)
Happy birthday, lovely girl!

Rachel - March 5, 2009 - 8:17 pm

p.s. you could also use these if you decided to go to Nashville and become a country singer…especially #2.

Samantha - March 5, 2009 - 9:58 pm

I like # 2 and #4 the best. You have a beautiful smile!

Melissa Gruber - March 5, 2009 - 10:16 pm

Sorry this is so late…I was just on and thought…oh, I have to wish her a Happy Birthday! I hope you had a wonderful day and enjoyed it to the fullest…I just LOVE birthdays!

Pictures…they are all wonderful, but I think I like #1 or #5 the best. Hope that helps.

Heidi - March 5, 2009 - 10:41 pm

I think 3 I love the color and your smile!!

April - March 5, 2009 - 10:56 pm

#1 & 3 are my favorites, but I also love #10… and don’t downplay your dimple:)! Happy Birthday Noemi!

becky - March 5, 2009 - 11:20 pm

Number 1 and Number 6 are my favorites! They’re GREAT! And hope you had a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Krista Bailey - March 6, 2009 - 7:26 am

I like the FIRST one. So warm and welcoming.

Brianna - March 6, 2009 - 9:46 am

#10 is my favorite, but if I had to choose from the first six, I’d pick #1.

Hope you had a fabulous birthday and since you love extended birthdays, I hope your celebrations are continuing today and through the rest of the week. 🙂 Love you!

Kelly - March 6, 2009 - 1:30 pm

I love the first one… it’s captivating.

Theresa - March 6, 2009 - 5:42 pm

#1 is the best (looks very similar to 5 but the warm color is nicer)…second choice would be #5 or 6.

Nicole - March 6, 2009 - 6:37 pm

I vote for 1 & 4. You are a beautiful subject 🙂

Holly - March 6, 2009 - 7:52 pm

I like #1. 🙂

Liesl - March 7, 2009 - 1:26 pm

#1 is my fave. With #5 a close 2nd… :o) Beautiful pics!!

Alison Lea Photography - March 10, 2009 - 1:59 pm

1 or 10

Pamela @ Frugal Vet Tech - March 11, 2009 - 9:21 pm

I like 1 and 5. A belated “Happy birthday” to you!

Yvette - March 23, 2009 - 8:04 pm

2, 4 and 8 very close to a tie. I love 4 because it shows the you that I know and also how you love to bring architectural pieces/flare into your photos to add interest without distracting from the subject. I like 8 too even though it is a bit more serious it just is a great photo all around.
