PPETN Workshop, Noelle Bell Photography, Knoxville TN

Last week, myself and over 40+ members of the Professional Photographers of East Tennessee held a workshop at one of our members studio in Maryville, TN.  Gena Tussey of Stationhouse Photography graciously offered her studio to us where we had the opportunity to shoot with various studio lights and light modifiers.  We had three wonderful models who did a phenomenal job.  Katie dressed up in cos-play, Liz wore a dress from Wedding Wonderland, and Raegan Kennedy, one of my high school senior models, brought some new outfits from Southern Charm Boutique in Oliver Springs, TN.

I didn’t have a lot of time to shoot because we had so many members show up and I helped with one of the stations for a bit.  It is such an honor to have colleagues that want help from each other and work together to improve their skill sets.  Here are some of the images Noelle Bell Photography captured from the night.

Isabella Lee, Class of 2017, Extreme Sports Portraits, Noelle Bell Photography

Noelle Bell Photography has had a lot of fun doing extreme sports portraits with my seniors this past year and I wanted to play around with another sport and lighting set up on a different background.  I asked Isabella to come in earlier this year after softball practice and we had a lot of fun capturing some extreme sports portraits of her in her softball uniforms.

I can’t wait to see what the next session will look like as I’m excited to add more sports with my 2016 seniors.

Dogwood Arts Chalk Walk and Art DeTour, Noelle Bell Photography

Last weekend was a beautiful, bright and sunny Saturday.  It was the perfect day for the Dogwood Arts Chalk Walk and Art DeTour.  Downtown in the heart of Knoxville, Market Square, was an amazing display of all the artists that had spent hours of the day working on their chalk art masterpieces.  I was amazed at the color and the detail that so many of these artists could accomplish with chalk, which was in no way simple at all.  It was nice to look at other artists work as well and be inspired by their creativity.

The day was special because it was a nice afternoon where my husband and I spent the afternoon together walking around.  We ran into some friends, had a few good laughs and then sat out on porch of Blue Coast Bar and Grill and had some amazing food.

Here are some of my favorite images that I captured from the Chalk Walk and a few from our drive around the Dogwood Arts Trails.

There was another reason to get outside that day and that was so that I could try out my brand new Spider Holster for my camera.  I have to say I’m in love!  No more back pain as the camera is now on my waist.  It did take some getting used to for me to hook the camera in and out, and to get used to being “wider” in a crowded area as the camera hangs off the right side of my waist.  I used it for my first senior session this Saturday and it only confirmed how awesome this belt is for my back!  Getting the weight off my shoulder which has issues anyway is helping immensely.  Now do they have one for a laptop???  ;)

Hope you have a chance to get out and enjoy the sunshine today!  Happy to see it peek out between all the rain we have had.

Bearden Water Polo, Isabel Siegel, Noelle Bell Photography

This past Friday was a first for me.  I have been to lots of swimming, diving and other water sport events, but never have I been to a water polo match.  So when I found out that one of my girls, Isabel Siegel, was going to be on the Bearden High School water polo team I had to come to a game to check it out.  Of course I was brought my camera and it took some time to figure out how the game worked, but I think I have a good grasp on the game now.  The fun thing was that in this match, Isabel was playing against her old year-round water polo team that she used to be on.

Here are some pictures from the game.

Madeline Musico, Webb School of Knoxville, Class of 2015 Senior Portraits, Noelle Bell Photography

I am so happy to share some of Madeline’s senior portrait images. She is a stunningly beautiful and very talented young lady who attends Webb School of Knoxville who Noelle Bell Photography had the privilege of photographing in the fall with a theatrical like second shoot scheduled for the spring.  Madeline lived in Texas before this where she was involved in competitive theatrical programs, so she came to Knoxville, TN with star quality. We didn’t get the second shoot in between the craziness of so many college applications, college visit and her schedule with the spring play she was in at Webb. Her mom came in and to look at the images and she was blown away by how beautiful her daughter was.

Here are some of the images from the shoot we did at Noelle Bell Photography’s studio.

I love how gorgeous this image is and sultry look in her eyes is killer!

Cameron Kuerschen, Grace Christian Academy, Senior Portraits, Noelle Bell Photography

Noelle Bell Photography had a wonderful time capturing Cameron Kuerschen’s senior pictures this last month.  Cameron will be graduating from Grace Christian Academy in May and will head off to East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, TN in the fall to play football there.

We started his senior portraits at Grace Christian Academy on the football field and captured some gritty and casual pictures with him in his football jersey.  The sun was shining high in the sky and though it was a little bright we captured some amazing images both on the field and around the stadium.  Cameron was so patient with me and his mom as we plotted out each image.

Here are some images from the field at Grace Christian Academy.

We ended the senior session with some images when we had the most magnificent sunset where all the clouds in the sky seemed to point right to Cameron.

And this was by far a favorite image of mine.  I love to capture an image of the parent with their soon to be graduate, and this is an image of Kathy and Cameron with that beautiful sunset in the background.  Kathy is a wonderful mom that has done a great job in raising her son to be sweet and kind and well-behaved.  (I was called ma’am a lot by Cameron)  Thank you so much for letting me capture what I know will be a special moment for you in years to come….letterman jacket and all!  Senior Pictures, Senior Boy, Football, Field, Barn, Noelle Bell Photography, Mother and SonThis was such a fun senior session and I can’t wait for them to see these images in their finished products.

Raegan Kennedy, Oliver Springs High School Sneak Peek

This past week I had a blast with Raegan on her last spokesmodel session with me as a junior at Oliver Springs High School.  It’s hard to believe she will be a senior next year, but time sure does fly, and I can’t wait to capture her senior portraits!  Here is a sneak peek of an image from her session.  I can’t wait to do a full post with these images and share all the fun we had.
