Last Wednesday Noelle Bell Photography had the pleasure of capturing Sage Weber’s high school senior portraits. Sage has the ability to graduate a year ahead of her class and so she decided to do it. So this session was a sweet 16, senior portraits and graduation all rolled into one. Sage, her mom and I traveled to downtown Knoxville and endured the cold weather to capture some beautiful images of Sage. We had about an hour before the sun went down so we drove around warming up in the car as we went from place to place in the downtown area. Then we stopped back at the studio for a few close up head shots and fun with all my hats and fur’s! It was a fun filled evening of laughter, coffee and well, here are two images from the session. It’s a sneak peek as Sage and her mom are on their way to see the images now!
If you go to Bearden High School and are a senior looking for amazing portraits, talk with Sage about getting your portraits done. She has a special offer for you too to use towards your session.
Call today as there are only a few sessions available in December, but they will book up quickly. Contact Noelle Bell Photography studios at (865) 661-2744 or email email@example.com today.
The World is Waiting for You!
A meeting of coincidence allowed Noelle Bell Photography the opportunity to do a styled photo shoot at the TN Theatre. With that kind of opportunity I also was able to work with many new vendors that I had been in conversation with for some time now like Bella Boutique, and a brand new friend in Raymie Alsobrooks who did an amazing job with makeup and brought along a friend who did a stunning job on the girls hair.
The historic TN theatre has always been a stunning place to go to see the Opera’s and musicals that I love, so the chance to photograph inside the theatre was amazing. I did not want the traditional shots of the theatre, but my own creative images to showcase high school seniors, prom or homecoming dresses from Bella Boutique that I was photographing. A huge thank you goes out to the TN theatre for the time they allowed us to photograph there. I can’t wait to share the images with you. Here are two of the images that I captured from Monday’s session.
This one is Molly in the stunning lobby of the theatre. Molly is in musical theatre at Bearden High School, so the location was a perfect fit for her. When were were trying on dresses she said she had never worn a blue dress before, but I think this color looked amazing on her!
Madison is one of my Senior Spokesmodels from Clinton High School who also came for this shoot and had the opportunity to dance on the stage of the TN Theatre as well as model another dress from Bella Boutique. Madison also was a perfect fit for this shoot as she has been dancing for years with Dream Dance in Clinton, TN. I know she would love to come back and dance on this stage professionally someday.
So here’s a sneak peek for you! Stay tuned for more images later this week. And I’ll see you tomorrow Madison for your senior shoot!
A beautiful wedding, a beautiful couple and a stunning image box to hold the images for the parents of the groom who wanted 4×6 prints of the wedding images. This particular box holds up to 800 images, (Noelle Bell Photography will be putting in 786).
I love the timeless feel of black and white so I took their formal and made it black and white and used that for the cover image. The back has an image on it as well, but most likely won’t be seen much. I really hope they enjoy this image box! I’m pretty sure they will.
This image is the side of the box that just states their names and the wedding date. It has a nice clean look to it as well.
So here is your sneak peek Peggy and Joe! Pretty soon this will be in your hands with a lot of images inside of it. Enjoy!
Until next time…
Last year I had a post that I shared with you about the birth of the baby swans right across the way from where I work and I thought I would follow that post up today with some images I just recently took of them. Well they are all grown up now, the mom (or the “pen”) is the one that is the closest in this image, and one of the young (known as a “cygnet” – but is not so small anymore) is in the background. I have more images to share at a later time, but I only had time for a few quick edits as we had a birthday party to go to last night.
I spent quite a bit of time hanging out and was only about 10 feet away from them when I captured the second image below, so you can tell that they are very used to people. I didn’t bring any food for the sheer reason that I knew I would get overrun and not able to take any pictures, but plans are in place to go back with some bread to feed them and capture more images of them.
These creatures are quite impressive and I do have some of them shaking out their wings! WOW do they have an impressive wing span, but they actually are the largest waterfowl on the earth. It’s really neat to be able to see them up close and capture images of them.
This image below held me in awe! These creatures are so incredibly flexible and WOW that was a bit freaky to see the swan looking at me backwards. It looks a bit unnatural, but cool at the same time!
I also did find out that swans not only mate for life, but they do have babies most every year after they have mated, so I’m looking forward to seeing the whole process again this year! More little cygnets!! Stay tuned for another update and more images from this day in the coming weeks.
Here is a Swan website for the UK that has a great list of commonly asked questions about swans.
Until next time…
This past Saturday I had a chance to practice some studio images with Emily Anne Buck and we had some fun!! I had just purchased some old hats at an estate sale the other day, and I was anxious to try them out. WOW did they make the session sizzle! I loved the dimension that the hat added to the shoot and the images came out beyond amazing! Of course working with Emily Anne has always been fun and very easy!! I am looking forward to seeing her next weekend at a party at her house where I get the opportunity to photograph a bunch of little babies in their halloween costumes. What fun!
So here are a few images for you to see. The fun hat with the big flower is mine. The brown hat was Emily Anne’s.
Oh, and did I mention that Emily Anne just had a baby a few months ago!?!
Amazing jacket from the 70’s that was her mom’s. Lesson: keep everything for your kids it will someday come back in style!
Black and White Beauty
And here showing off some personality!
Thanks EA for a great shoot!! We did it fast and it was so much fun! I can’t wait to see you and all the little “pumpkins” next weekend!
Until next time…
A week ago I had the joy of photographing my friends little boy just a few weeks after he arrived into this world!! What an adorable baby boy he was!! Even now as I’m working on the images, I have such a hard time editing because he is such a cutie pie. He will be a heartbreaker for sure as he grows up! He slept for a little while, and was awake for some of the shoot. We did find that the monkey mobile that played music was soothing and helped to put him to sleep. He has such a great room that we really got some amazing pictures with the great light coming in the windows.
Here are a few sneak peeks of the most adorable Henry Best!
I hope you enjoy them!! Sarah and Jason, you made a beautiful baby boy! I can’t wait to see him grow.
