Carissa Rogers, Out of School Education Intern

I met Carissa through church when she was a rising first grader. As she grew up, I got to know her more and then got the opportunity to work with her through her internship with Noelle Bell Photography. For her last semester of her senior year of high school at Karns, one of her classes included a program for Out Of School Education. This is where a student may seek out an internship that could be down the career path they might want to go down for the future. This helps students to gain knowledge and experience for the career and for them to figure out earlier if this is the type of job they want to continue into. Carissa has had an interest in photography since middle school and chose Noelle Bell Photography to work for and shadow. She is an aspiring artist that will do well in the future.

Alaina Hayes, Senior Pictures, Noelle Bell Photography, Knoxville TN

What a joy it was to capture Alaina’s senior pictures.  She has been a Thursday Connection student that I have photographed for the past 3 years.   When it came time to capture her senior portraits they contacted Noelle Bell Photography and scheduled a 2 hour session.  We started out in downtown Knoxville at one of my favorite locations, the Historic Southern Railway Station, where we captured some amazing images of her in a beautiful red dress.

 

We finished up at the train station and headed off to some beautiful tall grass where we captured her with her cowgirl hat that she used to use when she competed, (I so loved that hat), and some gorgeous outdoor shots.  We started with the American flag they wanted to use.

Then we got out her guitar and denim jacket for some other shots in the beautiful sunlight.

Then we headed off to their house to capture some of her with the brown eyed boy she fell in love with at the age of 6.  Trigger was thrilled to come out and eat the good grass and then we captured some neat pictures of the two of them together.

And what country girl doesn’t want a picture on her John Deere!  It was a great ending to Alaina’s session, and her parents were thrilled with all the amazing images.

Isabel and Becca, Sibling Session, Bearden High School Family Session, Noelle Bell Photography

After Isabel session her mom asked if we could do a “Sibling session” with Isabel and Becca.   They both go to Bearden high school this year.  Isabel as a senior and Becca as a freshman.  They both swim year-round and on the Bearden Bulldog swim team but they are night and day different from each other in personality and in stature (and hair color if that wasn’t obvious).

We decided to go with the same location as some of Isabel’s senior pictures at the Southern Railway Station in downtown Knoxville.  As with all siblings there’s a real bond of love for each other that really showed that day.  These two girls are silly! They laughed a lot,  they teased each other all in good sibling rivalry, but you could tell the moments the tenderness for each other showed through.

The girls had brought three different outfits and since we had quick access to change they made quick work of the 45 minutes that we had.  Here’s some of the fun that we had starting out.

Here is everyone’s favorite image and the one that showcases both of these girls personalities perfectly.

I’ve always been a fan of black and white imagery, so here’s one of my favorites.

And here’s a few other ones that weren’t selected as gift prints but are images that I really loved and feel showcase these girls and their personality.

Isabel already had her senior pictures, so we captured one of just Becca and I can’t wait to see what she changes in the next three years as she is almost done with her freshman year at Bearden High School.

Carson Sanders, Senior Pictures, Noelle Bell Photography, HVA

Carson what to say about Carson!?   I have had this kid in Sunday school ever since he was in second grade.   I’ve gotten to know his family as I photographed his older sisters Katie for her senior portraits.  Now it was time for Carson’s senior pictures.  We had a lot of fun starting at Noelle Bell Photography where we captured some images of Carson in his Harden Valley Academy marching band uniform.

Afterwards Carson changed into something casual to take a couple portraits both in the studio and then a few outside behind the studio as we had some beautiful fall colors in the background.
It was a lot of fun to photograph this with my intern Carissa I have also had her ever since she was a rising first grader in Sunday school.  She was my intern all semester so let me tell you this session especially so entertaining because everybody knew each other from way back so we just had a blast.
After that was all done we decided to take some senior portraits on the road not literally the road but we went just a little bit around the corner and got some sun pictures of him playing the trumpet outside at night.

And then I just let Carson play with fire.  Carissa and I took pictures and laughed at how much fun he was having.   There are really not any great pictures from this because my wrist was pretty much worn out by this time, so I just took some pictures of him in the fire.  We did do a second set with Carson because I wanted to get a few of him and his favorite hoodie!!  It’s his mom’s favorite outfit of all time of Carson’s!!   He he he…I was just thankful that his shirts didn’t need ironing, even if they both were green.  😂
And here is Amy’s favorite from the second half of the session.

Carson I just want to say that I have loved watching you grow up in the Lord and in life.  I’m so excited to see what God’s going to do with you in the future even if you do grow your hair long. 😉

Garrett Conti, Senior Pictures, Catholic High School, Noelle Bell Photography

It was such an honor to be contacted by Debbie in regards to her son Garrett’s senior portraits.  Debbie was good friends with one of my past clients Kathy and she had loved the work I had done with Kathy’s son Cameron.  The best compliment I can be paid is when my clients are thrilled with their experience and refer me to wonderful people.  And now I have a new wonderful client and friend in Debbie.

Debbie and I met to talk about Garrett session, where we wanted to capture the images, what he was into, clothing and anything else we might want to consider for his session.  I have to tell you Garrett’s super cool because his mom went shopping for him and she bought him the coolest boots, jeans and shirts.   I was a little jealous of those boots!

We started out Garrett session in the old city in downtown Knoxville and then we worked our way towards worlds fair Park.  We captured a bunch of amazing images all along the way.

Last year most of my sessions I had to break up into two because my broken wrist was still healing.  We had to do that with Garrett as well, so I went to his home to capture some images of Garrett a few days later.   Garrett is headed out west for college as he wants to be a computer programmer and Debbie wanted to make sure we captured some of him working at his station at home.  I’m sure this set up will be small potatoes to the number of screens he will be using in the not so distance future.

We also got to capture some images of him and his best buddy Rosie, his dog.  She was such a beautiful dog and she’s a little older now so it was really neat to capture these pictures as this is been Garrett’s dog for quite some time.  Thank you Debbie for the privilege of letting me capture your son’s images and getting to know you and your family.  It’s been a lot of fun!

Cassidy Bailey, Senior Pictures, Noelle Bell Photography, Bearden High School

When I first met with Cassidy, we immediately connected as she not only loves photography but she also has and loves cats.  She wanted to include her cats in her senior portraits so I had her come by as I was actually setting up for a Halloween set and I photographed her cats in the set as well as some of them by themselves.  These images actually wound up being a three piece collage that they purchased.

Cassidy’s senior session we set at Concorde Park in Farragut, TN.  The location worked great as I had a few things that I wanted to try which we did at the very end of the session.  She wanted to spell out 2016 in leaves and since there were still some remaining fall leaves there it worked out nicely.

Cassidy also loves pumpkins and halloween so she brought her pumpkin which matched wonderfully with her purple and black outfit.

Cassidy loves water and I brought a crimson tulle skirt that we had discussed using on the beach.  We altered the plan slightly and Cassidy actually went into the water with it.  This image was actually a favorite of both hers and mine from her senior session.

Her mom got in on a few pictures as well with Cassidy.  She and her mom are really close as it’s been the two of them for a while now.   I could tell immediately how close they were as they goofed off, laughed made faces at each other.  it was a lot of fun to capture the two of them together.  Here’s the image that they selected as their favorite.

For the last part of our session Cassidy changed and we got some fun in with smoke.  We lost almost all light so it was very hard to do this as we needed one more set of hands.  Here is her and my favorite image from that last part of the session.   Cassidy’s outfit was perfect for this!  Cassidy, thank you for allowing me the privilege of capturing your senior pictures.

Dani Crowder, Senior Pictures, Maryville High School, Noelle Bell Photography

Last fall Dani Crowder from Maryville, TN got on my website and booked her senior session.  I love that my website now has a fast and easy way to book senior sessions.  You can just go onto the website, go to the tab that says “BOOK NOW” and pay.  Once your session is booked the next open slot that fits into your schedule is yours.  Dani took advantage of this only 1 week after the website link was set up.  It made it so easy and we did our consultation over the phone.

When Dani came for her senior session I was ready to quit and go shopping she had some awesome outfits for her session.  The weather was perfect, the light was gorgeous and the wind give us just a touch of a breeze so it wasn’t too hot.  Dani brought her friend Brentlie along and we captured some neat images towards the end of the two of them together.

Here’s some of my favorites from the first part of her session and my favorite outfit.

The second outfit was amazing as well, and the blue top with the water in the background really made the images rock.  It really was a perfect weather kind of day.

We moved down the road to capture some images at the end of the shoot and we were privileged with the most magnificent sunset.

And not to be forgotten, here are some of the images of Dani and Brentlie together.  These were not images ordered but I wanted to be sure the girls had some of these to remember the fun that they had that day.
