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

I had so much fun with Kathy and Cameron this past Wednesday at Cameron’s high school senior portrait session.  It was sunny and warm and we had fun capturing his senior portraits both at Grace Christian Academy on the football field, and at the family’s barn nearby.  Not only that but we had a magnificent sunset to end the day with.  There are so many amazing images and I am so excited to share them on Tuesday with Kathy.

Here is a sneak peek of one of my favorite images from Cameron’s senior portrait session at the farm.  The clouds all seemed to point right to Cameron.

Award Winning Images, Noelle Bell Photography, PPETN competition

Here are some images that Noelle Bell Photography has placed in at our monthly competitions at the Professional Photographers of East Tennessee (PPETN) with my friends and fellow colleagues.  I wanted to share some of the images that took awards this past year since I didn’t get them up last year on the blog.

In May of last year this image took 1st place!  I love capturing dancers with all the flexibility they have.  This was taken in the historic Tennessee Theatre with one of my class of 2015 high school seniors, Madison.  http://bit.ly/1FY5Yaa

In August of last year I had two images place in the competition.  The first image took 2nd place.  One of my favorite sports images that I have taken of one of my class of 2015 high school senior football players, Tyler Campbell.    http://bit.ly/1C2w7BK

The second image tied for 3rd place and was a favorite from a styled session of Raegan.  I look forward to capturing her senior pictures this year.

And finally the two images that took the highest awards I have ever achieved in our Annual Salon have finally been added to our blog and gallery. http://bit.ly/1OmMFLd

This first image took Best in Show in the entire portrait category!  I was beyond amazed at this award and with the stellar amount of photographers I am privileged to be colleagues with, this was truly an honor and a showcase of hard work paying off.  This was entitled “Dramatic Flair” and I also received the highest score I ever have received with this image.

And this Image took 1st place in the pet category as well at the image salon, entitled “Golden Girl”

To sum it up, last year was stellar and this year I have a lot of work cut out to get even better and refine my skills even more.  I look forward to seeing where that takes me this year.

Brandii’s Maternity Portraits, Noelle Bell Photography, Knoxville TN

Last fall Noelle Bell Photography had the privilege of capturing my friend Brandii’s maternity portraits both inside her home and outside in Knoxville, TN.  We started inside as it was late in the summer and she was worried that it would be too hot, but that allowed us to capture some gorgeous photos of her and the family inside, and the day to cool down a bit.

The fun part about the indoor session was that their cat Moxee decided that this session was going to have her in it!  She hoped up on their bed and the couch downstairs, which is usually off limits, but they allowed a special “claws” (ha ha) for that particular minute.  It was fun to get her a few images of her as she has some heart issues.

It wound up being beautiful and not too hot outside so we were able to take time and capture Brandii and Rennie in a beautiful setting near their home.  I’m so glad we ventured out.

Here is a look at some of my favorite images from the maternity session.

Spring Senior Portrait Sessions, Noelle Bell Photography, Knoxville TN

The flowers and trees are beginning to bloom, the sun is shining and fresh fruits and veggies are showing up on my plate every day.  The best part about spring coming now is that all the high school seniors want the lovely blossoms in their pictures, and those blooms are opening and flowering more and more every day!  I’m ignoring the “possible snow flurries” in the forecast for Friday with the temperature at 50+ that day, and going with all the 70+ degree weather we will be having right now, and the 60+ temperature on Monday of next week.

So if you haven’t scheduled your senior session, Noelle Bell Photography has 3 available spots for the end of March, first week in April, and some of the trees look to be in full bloom at that time.  If you want to head out for some gorgeous senior pictures at that time, contact me today and let’s get your session on the books so you can get those custom designed graduation cards in time to send out to family and friends.

Here are three of my favorite spring senior portraits that I’ve taken.  Looking forward to capturing more on Wednesday.

Rachael Rose, Halls High School, Knoxville TN, Noelle Bell Photography

I’m so excited to have the opportunity to capture Rachael’s senior portraits this year!  Last year we tried to make this happen for a model shoot and our schedules never seemed to work out.  This year we made this short little one happen and we will capture her senior session later this year.

Rachael will be graduating from Halls High school this coming December, a semester early.  She will walk with the class of 2016 in the spring of next year, but she’ll already be on her way to college.  She is headed off to pursue her love of cooking and I’m anxious for her to start trying out cooking on me ;)

I met Rachael, her mom and her dad 2 1/2 years ago in the stands at a band competition where I was watching some of my other kids perform.  They were so nice and explained much of the competition to me and mentioned they would love to get some pictures of her at some time before we all left.  Fastforward to last fall where we met to talk about the model shoot, tried to make it work and then made it happen a few weeks ago. The years have flown by and Rachael has transformed into a very beautiful young woman.

Here are some of the images we captured….stay tuned for more later this year.

Isabel Siegel | Bahamas Fundraiser | Class of 2016 Senior | Noelle Bell Photography | Knoxville TN

Since I met Isabel in 6th grade when she came to Fellowship Church, she has been a constant joy.  She is a hard worker, a swimmer, an honor roll student and she has a heart for missions that has been wonderful to see grow as her relationship with the Lord has deepened.

Isabel sent me a message about her upcoming mission trip to the Bahamas with the youth at Fellowship church and so I proposed a Instagram picture party to help her raise some money for this trip.  We put it together, took some early senior pictures of Isabel and I created a bookmark with her favorite verse on it to give out to her family and friends.  We didn’t have a lot of people at the party after 2 weeks of snow and no school, but because of the posts for this party family and friends and others who wanted to support her heard about her trip and the Lord provided through them the remainder of the money needed for the trip.

Here is one of my favorite pictures of Isabel and a few from the party.

“Most of our time during the day we will be helping a camp down there prepare for this summer and the campers coming.  One thing we will be  helping with is finishing their new dining hall and transform the old dining hall into another cabin. Also while we are down there we will have an outreach program where we go to a park and invite kids from the surrounding area to come. We will playing games and making crafts that are biblical.  This fundraiser helped me raise most of my money for my trip.  It was really fun and Noelle out did herself with a cool sparkly gold background, bookmarks and little gift cups.”   ~ Isabel

I’m looking forward to hearing all about Isabel’s trip and praying for their safe arrival as the team arrives home tonight.

Deven Suggs, Senior Portraits, Townsend TN, Noelle Bell Photography

Capturing Deven Suggs’ senior pictures were a blast!  We started out in Townsend, TN at Moon Shadow Lodge where he works part time.  The location was beautiful and the abundance of the woods made for a perfect setting for his many talents of hunting with both his compound bow and his hunting rifle.  We even drove his truck way on up into the woods to get some super cool edgy shots with him and his truck.  Deven not only works hard and is homeschooled, but he works multiple jobs and is getting ready to head off to college in a few months to pursue the calling on his heart towards the ministry at a Bible college.

Here are some of the images from the first part of the senior shoot.  He went with a camo theme for this part of his senior pictures.

The next week we met at Maryville College to capture some of the beautiful fall colors and to capture more casual poses of him.  We found some great little spots around campus and I love the one of him reading his Bible under the tree.
