Last week, myself and over 40+ members of the Professional Photographers of East Tennessee held a workshop at one of our members studio in Maryville, TN. Gena Tussey of Stationhouse Photography graciously offered her studio to us where we had the opportunity to shoot with various studio lights and light modifiers. We had three wonderful models who did a phenomenal job. Katie dressed up in cos-play, Liz wore a dress from Wedding Wonderland, and Raegan Kennedy, one of my high school senior models, brought some new outfits from Southern Charm Boutique in Oliver Springs, TN.
I didn’t have a lot of time to shoot because we had so many members show up and I helped with one of the stations for a bit. It is such an honor to have colleagues that want help from each other and work together to improve their skill sets. Here are some of the images Noelle Bell Photography captured from the night.
A big thank you to Katy, Liz and Raegan for being amazing models! We loved having you there and I hope you enjoy the images. I know the other members will have some amazing images as well.
This year has been great! Stellar, a year of stretching and growing and pushing myself as well as taking risks that has come to a very fast finish! From a busy high school senior portrait session to the beginning of my pet portrait photography line. From 8th grade portraits sessions to beautiful families in the fall season, to beautiful weddings and bridal portraits. Here are some of my absolutely favorite images from 2013. And just in case you are counting, I went over 20 images, but I just couldn’t narrow it down more than this.
From all of us here at Noelle Bell Photography we wish you all the best in 2014!
2012 has come and gone and with it so many wonderful memories and so many things have happened here at Noelle Bell Photography, both good and bad.
The bad can be summed up with one thing, falling and fracturing my foot while loading up things for the bridal show in March. So I was off my foot completely for March and April and in a boot. I was not up to shooting until late May and even then it was just a little. So in July and the following months I began to get back into the groove of shooting and growing my business. I did discover that bones don’t heal as quickly as they do when you are younger.
In August I had the joyous opportunity to leave my day job and take Noelle Bell Photography full-time! I was so excited and there were now hours in the day for all the things that I had spent many hours late at night doing. My husband and I took our first vacation in 3 years and then with the fall season I spent many hours photographing families, more 2013 graduating high school seniors and building my Christmas set in the studio in preparation for the holidays. The holiday portraits were wonderful and I finally can share some of the images with the families that were saving the images for holiday gifts.
Last night we rung in the new year after taking a week off and spending it with family and friends and remembering what the reason for the season truly is about. As 2013 begins, I wanted to sum up some of my favorite images from 2012 and say a very special thank you to all of my clients that I have had the privilege of working with and thank you so much for making this year truly special!
Here is a look back on 2012 and the top 20 images from last year here at Noelle Bell Photography. There were so many great images to choose from and so many that I hated to cut, but these were by far my favorite ones! These images are in no particular order.
Happy New Year to all of you and I look forward to serving you in 2013 here at Noelle Bell Photography, Knoxville TN
Just last week here at the Noelle Bell Photography studio’s I had a client and someone who has become a good friend, Mayra, from In-Flight Ideas, came to see me to get some updated head shots for her website. Mayra came prepared with a great idea and a cupcake that complimented her website just perfectly! Here are the two images I’m completed so far that include her sweet little cupcake!
Here is my personal favorite!
And here is the second image she chose.
Okay, so she looks totally beautiful in both!!!
But do you have a favorite? If so which one and why? I mean seriously though….is she not stunning! And it’s inside and out….trust me.
So if you are looking for some updated head shots here in the Knoxville TN area, please give the studio’s here at Noelle Bell photography a call. We would be happy to fit you in.
