Snow Day Fun in East TN, 3 girls and Starbucks!

Well I’ve finally compiled some of my favorite images from the snow days we had a few weeks back in East TN.  So thankful for the beautiful snow that is rarely seen here in the south, and even more thankful that two of Noelle Bell Photography‘s high school seniors were there to join in on the fun.  So Lindsay, Ila, Haven and I all headed up towards Pigeon Forge to a beautiful place called the Swann Plantation which is a new wedding venue that they allowed us to use.

Here are the stars of the show in a few of our opening images from the day.  Two of the girls had known each other from a dance class, but they were fast friends.

Snow, Girls, Boots, Senior PicturesSo after a few fun shots in this location and almost falling a few times as the boots made it fun to be “slipping and a sliding” , I captured an individual image of each of them.  These girls are absolutely stunning, with hearts to match!

Snow fun, Snowball, Boots, high school senior pictureThey were very happy to warm up after this.  We had fun trying to make it look like it was snowing for these next pictures.  Lindsay kept getting hit with the snow, but I love this picture of her!  We got it down for Ila’s image and then not so much but I love this one of Haven!

And what’s a better way to end a shoot but to treat the girls to Starbucks on the way home! We had the best time and I do indeed hope for more snow, but I think it might be time for spring to come rolling in.

Stay tuned for another post featuring the inside of the plantation.

Can you do senior pictures year round?

Well of course you can do senior pictures year round, and how many seniors in East TN can say they have some snow pictures!  I was born and raised in NJ where when it snowed they might have had a two hour delay as they salted the roads and put the chains on the busses, but we rarely missed school to snow.  A winter day where Knox County High Schools were closed for 3 days made for a great opportunity to head to the mountains and do a photo shoot with my senior spokesmodels. Lindsay was featured yesterday and today I wanted to feature Haven.   What a wonderful time to do senior pictures but when school is out and the roads are good. The snow and a beautiful landscape of the mountains were a great combination and the white snow reflected light everywhere.  Here is a sneak peek of Haven, a class of 2016 senior at Bearden High School who came along and rocked the camera!  I loved the brilliant blue sweater that she brought.  The color really popped on this shoot.

Check this image out.  Talk about confidence and beauty, they both shine through!

A Snow Day in East TN a Fun Day!

For this NJ born and bred girl, I was so excited to take a trip up to NJ and be in the snow, but even better was to drive back to Knoxville, TN and have the snow follow me!  The wonderful thing about East TN is that they are not equipped like NJ is for the snow, so the schools were out for not just one, but 3 days!  I know the high school kids were happy about that.

So after the first day of getting back to work I contacted Lindsay Holt, one of my Halls High school senior spokesmodels, and asked if she would be free to to a photo shoot with me in the snow.  I know hard question, but one of the bonuses of being a Noelle Bell Photography Senior Spokesmodel!  :)

There wound up being three girls that came with me on Thursday.   It was a gorgeous sunny day where I challenged myself to shoot only with a reflector and nothing else outside.  Here is a sneak peek of Lindsay from the shoot!  I can’t wait to share more of the images.

Fall Family Portraits, Knoxville TN, Noelle Bell Photography

This past fall I had the privilege of photographing two of our good friends and their two sons in Noelle Bell Photography‘s “Fields of Fall” mini sessions.  We had a wonderful day with perfect weather and beautiful accent colors in the fall leaves.   The Kendall family was amazing to work with and this was the second photo shoot I had done with them.  It’s always fun to watch a family grow up in front of you, especially ones that we consider as friends.

The pictures were a gift for them for the holidays, so now that all the images have been given, I wanted to share some of my favorite images from this beautiful family shoot.

If you haven’t scheduled a family shoot in some time, we would love to capture your family in a casual outdoor setting.  Contact us at noelle@noellebellphotography.com or at (865) 661-2744 today.

Erin Moye, Class of 2017, Noelle Bell Photography

Sometimes you just need to try out some new concepts and it’s always fun when I get new backdrops.  Here is my fun with the new one that I got over the holidays that will be used for a high school prom this year.  This shoot was extra fun as Erin, who is a freshman at Hardin Valley Academy, was just about to start spending her days in training for softball, and I got to catch up while I fixed her hair.  She had straightened it earlier in the day so I worked some amazing magic to get the look we achieved, (thanks to the many times I’ve watched my former intern Natalie Cage do the same).   So here are some of Erin’s awesome images on this more than fun backdrop.

Looking forward to more fun with this backdrop in the future!
