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.

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.

Emma Claire Newborn Session, New Jersey, Noelle Bell Photography

Last year my husband and I took our first long vacation to New Jersey where I was born and raised, and we visited family and close friends.  Last year we were also up there to celebrate one of my best friends 40th birthday’s.  So less than a year later I was up just a week before her birthday to celebrate the birth of her firstborn Emma Claire, who was promptly nicknamed E-Claire.   She can blame that on her Aunt Noelle!   🙂

It was a perfect 4 days that I had to spend with Trish and Emma Claire.  So of course I packed my car full of props so I could capture newborn pictures.   E-Claire did a great job of posing and we were able to capture her in her mom’s West Virginia University colors while she was sleeping.  I have a yellow tutu for the next time I’m up there.   I’m sure she will have lots of WVU attire to pair with it.

I also captured her with all of her animal siblings.  She has a very protective sister in Pasha and Stryker is a very protective big brother as well.  Here’s Pasha giving kisses!  🙂

Here are some other images I captured outside of Stryker and Pasha.  They are the most beautiful shepherds I know and they are actually sister and brother, from different litters, but they have the same mom and dad.

Here is Patton, who normally stays up on his shelf in the bedroom where the dogs can’t reach him.  But since the dogs refused to leave the room that Trish and E-Claire were in, he got off of his shelf and was playful as I captured some images of him.  He is a 27 lb cat but he fit on the chair.

It was really special to capture some of E-Claire with her daddy loving on her.  It was the perfect time to visit as the following week John’s father passed away.  I’m so glad that He will always have pictures of the first weeks with his little girl.  And I plan to be around for many more pictures of them together.  And I was thrilled to hear that they were able to get a few pictures of her with her grandpa.  That will be a wonderful memory.

Jennifer Cowan 2014 Senior Pictures Halls High School, Knoxville TN Noelle Bell Photography

One of my senior spokesmodel’s Lindsay, referred Jennifer to Noelle Bell Photography, and Jennifer has been such a pleasure to work with and get to know.  When we talked at the pre-consultation Jennifer got to see my cats and she asked if she could bring her 16lb black cat Midnight to join her for the shoot, and of course we made that happen!  We love when high school students include their pets in their senior pictures, especially when they mean as much to them as Midnight means to Jennifer.

We started out in the studio and got some pictures of Midnight and Jennifer and then some of Midnight all by himself.

Then Jennifer wanted to play with some glitter, so we did.  I absolutely love how all of those images came out and I can’t believe how much glitter covered her jeans, I should have taken a picture of that.  Here is my favorite image from that set.

Jennifer is an artist in her own right and she brought some of her finished and in process works of art to showcase that part of her personality and her unique talent.  We chose the UT Gardens for the setting of these pictures and thanks to the use of a beautiful artists easel and the gorgeous setting these images came out wonderful.

Then we headed to Market Square and captured some images of Jennifer with the lights of the square and then some by the Oliver Hotel.

A Cat filled Holiday, Noelle Bell Photography Knoxville TN

What a Christmas it has been!  Finally time to relax with our families and our friends.  We spent Christmas eve with Lynn’s dad and we brought Lynn’s cat Guinevere to visit “Grandpa Grady” for a few weeks.  She just loves the hardwood floors and the fun she has as the only cat in the house!  We had a great time relaxing and a little time playing with her.  She really enjoyed when the bags and the boxes were open!  The only thing she likes more than that is catnip!

Christmas Holidays_Cats_Noelle Bell Photography_2012_0164

On Christmas day we got to see Lynn’s 93 year old grandmother, and his cousins.  It’s such fun to see everyone and how they have grown.  And it’s always fun to see his grandmother’s cats.  The tabby, Bitty is over 20 years old and a sweet cat, but most of the time this year she slept.

A few days later we made it to my parents house and there we got to see the mother of my two cats whom my parents affectionately named Zip.  Zip is gray and white, and although all of her children came out black or black and white, they look just like her.  My little tuxedo Oreo is the spitting image of her just in black and white.  She is about 7 years old now or somewhere about there.   Here are some of the fun images I captured of her.

Stay tuned tomorrow and I’ll have the second half of this post which includes some great family portraits from the trip.  I so love capturing images of cats…I think the yawn – the last picture of Zip was my favorite!  🙂
