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.

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.

Raegan Kennedy, Senior Pictures, Oliver Springs High School Senior, Noelle Bell Photography

I met Raegan 3 years ago when she needed some pageant photos for the pageant she was going to be in.  We took some pictures outside in a few casual outfits and then went into the studio for the formal images.  Her mom and I really had a wonderful time and they were thrilled with my work (which was incredibly humbling as it was my first pageant shoot).  When they came back to view the images I asked if Raegan would consider being a spokesmodel for Noelle Bell Photography.

The following year she was a junior at Oliver Springs High School, and so the junior model program began.  We had two really neat photo shoots her junior year.  Here is a link to the images we captured on the first photoshoot where we had to work around a rainstorm that rolled in halfway through the shoot.

The second time we met for her second spokesmodel shoot we had a lot of fun styling in her formal dresses on a location shoot.  We tried a variety of lights and captured some amazing images.  I love the opportunity to get creative with my clients and Raegan was very happy to try new things.  Here are some of the images from that shoot as I don’t think I blogged that session, but they have been some of Raegan’s and my favorite images.

And finally we come to her senior session and what fun we had.  We headed to the Historic Southern Railway Station and she had brought some amazing outfits and simple looks that really looked amazing.  Here are some of the images they chose for her senior portraits, and a few of my favorites that I loved.

Raegan, these past few years have been a blast!  I can’t wait to see where this next adventure takes you and I look forward to hearing all the things God does in and through you.  Blessings from us here at Noelle Bell Photography!

Marie Michelle Keck Senior Portraits, Bearden High School Class of 2016

I met Marie-Michele her freshman year in high school at Fellowship Church.  She was a little shy but that was just because I didn’t really know her. By her sophomore year when I was co-leading the small group she was in, I got to know her a lot better and boy did she know how to put my leg.  Marie-Michele is definitely full of life full of laughter a lot of fun to hang out with.  She has a love for jewelry as well.   I have a container with lots of costume jewelry on the counter downstairs and every time she was over my house she found a new pair to try on or she would just wear them the whole time she was there.

Jill contacted Noelle Bell Photography about doing Marie-Michele’s senior portraits in the spring.  I was so excited Marie Michelle had signed up early enough that when I did a prom dress shoot with the boutique at Classy Lady in Knoxville, TN, she got to come and wear a fancy prom dress for the first time ever.  She was in love and of course was the only person that could’ve pulled off that beautiful peach dress.  Here are some images from that shoot
We did a Fourth of July session that Marie-Michele came to.  This year has been so much fun with these girls.
Marie-Michele’s individual senior portrait session took place downtown at the historic Southern Station in Knoxville Tennessee.  We had fun and the weather was perfect for the session.

We wandered around the old city and captured some stunning images.  Then we headed towards downtown for a few more spots that would capture images of her in the heart of Knoxville.  Some of my and her families personal favorites are in this grouping.

I’m a huge fan of black-and-white images, but I don’t always know if my clients love them.  This was a time when the clients asked for a stunning images to be turned into a black and white image. This wound up being their favorite image from the entire session.  They chose a large print for the wall with Marie Michelle’s favorite verse on it Jeremiah 2:11.

 I can’t wait to see what God has in store for Marie-Michele.  I look forward to seeing her grow and watch how the Lord uses her in the kingdom.

Tony Parilla, Hardin Valley Academy, Class of 2015 Senior Pictures, Noelle Bell Photography

I had such fun with Tony and his mom and sister on their downtown session to capture senior pictures of Tony.  Robyn and I have known each other from my previous job at Scripps Networks.  The details of when we first met I don’t recall but she attends Fellowship, the church I also attend, and we have remained connected the past few years.  She contacted me this past spring when her son was about to graduate from Harden Valley Academy regarding senior pictures.   We planned his senior portrait session in the old city in downtown Knoxville a few weeks later.  Here are a few images we captured in the heart of the old city.

His sister wasn’t feeling good the day we had the portrait session, so she came along and we got some sibling shots of them together.  I love it when siblings come along as it adds character and personality to the session.  Here are some of the images from their interactions that I made sure to capture.

 His signature look was one of my favorite images to capture.
Thank you Robyn, you have a fine young man in Tony, it was truly an honor to capture these images.  And thank you for your patience in the healing of my broken left wrist, as my hand is finally allowing me to type much easier these days.

Taylor Blake Senior Pictures, Bearden Bulldog Swimmer, Noelle Bell Photography

It was a privilege for Noelle Bell Photography to photograph Bearden High School senior, Taylor Blake.   We had a beautiful day to capture Taylor’s senior pictures, despite the heat. Taylor’s parents and his brother had a blast watching his pictures being photographed, and giving him a hard time.  They also participated in Taylor’s pictures and made him laugh quite a bit.  Needless to say that despite shooting his session in a cast, even I had a blast.

The images of Taylor’s reflection in the water were absolutely amazing to capture.  I even convinced him to put his feet in the water for a picture or two and his mom loved the imagery we captured as they spent their time on the water often as a family.

After we were done we found an secluded place to capture pictures of Taylor and his jeep.

On a separate day my intern and I met Isabel and Taylor at the pool as they are both on the Bearden High School swim team as well as Bearden High School’s water polo team.  Here are some of the images captured of Taylor at the pool.

Reflection images are one of my favorite to capture and we somehow lucked out and had no one in the pool the morning we were there, so we had the perfect conditions for this image.

And yes the light was shining just in the right place and Taylor wasn’t even posed for these images, he thought I was just messing around with the camera on the other side of the pool.  They sure did make for amazing images though.  At least now he can always look back to see how ripped he was!

And here’s one final shot, an action shot to memorialize his time on the Bearden High School water polo team.
