Junior Model Session, Hardin Valley Academy, Noelle Bell Photography

Earlier in June I had some free time and wanted to play in the sunshine and wheat fields, so I contacted Addison, whom I had photographed the summer before her freshman year in high school at Hardin Valley Academy.   I asked two other juniors who are also juniors at Hardin Valley Academy to join us and we made an afternoon of it.  We started out in downtown Knoxville in a new location.  It was a hot afternoon with the AC out in the upstairs room we were in, but thankfully I had brought a fan and it helped.    Here are my three favorite images from that part of the session.

Then we added a little bit of fun to the session with some tulle skirts that I had made.

The girls rocked these images and although Addison decided not to twirl, both Hannah and Hannah loved twirling in their skirts!

Then we headed off to the wheat field after a stop to get some coffee at Starbucks!  My frap was perfect, and I downed my ice water as well.  The only bummer was that the sun went behind the cloud when we got to the wheat field.  We managed a few pictures before we called it a night.

My seniors, 12 years in the making, Noelle Bell Photography

This is a very special year for me.  A year that is here by the grace of God and because I obeyed the Lord many years ago and let go of what I never wanted to let go of.  To tell you the story, I’ll have to take you back to when I first came to Knoxville, TN.  Suffice it to say this is a story with length so I’ll leave out a few things, like how God brought me to TN, but when I arrived in the fall of 2003 I began looking for a way to work with the youth in the area.  I had previously worked with the youth in Lynchburg, VA for about 12 years, and my college degree at Liberty University was Church ministries with a concentration on Youth Ministries.  I never felt the call on my life to be a pastor (Lordy you don’t want this crazy child to lead them in that role), but I had a clear calling for youth my sophomore year at Liberty.   Being a part of their life,  loving on them, doing fun and crazy things with them, (like Wal-Mart at midnight just for kicks) and just being there to do life with them.  I could share so many stories.

The Lord closed all doors to youth ministries to me here in Knoxville when I arrived and began looking for a place to serve.  Youth for Christ, Young Life, Fellowship’s youth group, and many other places.  I was pretty lost, so unsure of why God was closing all these doors.  When my small group leader, Dee, asked if perhaps God was calling me to a period of rest – well surely I didn’t need rest…why would He need me to do that?  But then again, He was.  When I finally got that through my head and said okay God I’ll rest, I had peace and knew He was calling me to that, even if I didn’t understand the why of it.  Little did I know that He had plans of His own just around the corner.

Summer came and with it Children’s ministry!  The church began asking for leaders for each grade and my friend Ken came to me and asked if I would work the same grade with him so that if either one of us wanted a weekend away we could go and one of us would still be there for the kids.  Okay, sure.  So we started with this group of rising 1st graders.  Benji, Olivia, Nathan, Katie, Naomi, Carissa and others who have come and gone through the years.  I never really knew that there was anything beyond the summer for me in this ministry and I loved these kids dearly, but this was a God thing and there were many more pieces yet to be discovered in this story.

That summer came and went and then the next summer Ken and I decided to do it again and keep the same kids so we had the rising 2nd graders.  This again did not register as any kind of a God story until the summer was winding down.  There was a desperate need to have leaders for the children’s ministries team.  It took me some time to finally respond to the tugging of the Lord on my heart to serve.  It wasn’t high school, but I had a relationship with the kids after two summers and in no time it grew to a deeper relationship including the parents as well.

I began to take the kids on outings, and yes the parents trusted me with their kiddos’, which to me was such a privilege and SO MUCH FUN!  Movies downtown were fun with some of the boys who all opted to get suicide soda’s – aka…a little bit of soda from each of the soda fountains tap (yes a combo of Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Dr. Pepper and whatever else was there). Can we say sugar rush!   All of these were fun even when we went to Mast General Store afterwards and I let the kids get even more candy.  (I’m such a good aunt!)  It’s a wonder those parents let me take them out again after getting their sugared up children back.

And there were soccer games to attend.

And then getting being invited to the “North Knoxville gatherings” as the “west Knoxvillian”, and becoming more involved with the kids and the parents in a fun and laid back setting.   I had an in as most of the kids there were the kids that I had in Sunday School.

And the journey continued into their 5th grade year.  Right before I got married and when my soon to be husband and I took 4 of the kids out to a movie and then ice cream and then took them home.  I’ll never forget “The Wheels on the Bus” by Carson and his many many made up verses to the song, and Brittany’s steel nerves as she sat in the back seat quietly not saying a thing.  I think i learned how far it really was from west Knoxville to his house that night!

My wedding rolled around and 4 of the kids came with their families.  I was thrilled to have them there and their families attend.

Then began their middle school crazy years.  I must admit I’m not a fan of middle school changes and the extreme amount of energy the kids have and I think I know that God has NOT called me to work with that age group.   I was going back to school for photography at that time, so I was the “photographer” during those years and held no formal title or role in their lives, but watched two dear ladies (Mandy and Tracy) love them well.  I was blessed to be able to watch them grow and still be a part of their lives.  Those years however, were the beginning of a huge change for me.  I had loved photography for a long time and had never taken the advise of my parents to pursue it until now.  This was finally the time and I knew right away that a change was coming.

I knew I wanted more time to spend with the kids at events and just time to be a part of their busy lives as they began high school.  However working a full-time job, part time job photography,  youth group as well as family and more.  It was becoming too much.  I was offered severance to leave the wonderful job that I had been at at Scripps Networks for the past 8 years, and I knew this was the right move.   After prayer and deliberation with my husband, the company and my parents, it was agreed and a few months later I made the move to work full-time as a portrait photographer.  I hadn’t full decided to mainly work with high over the years.

So all of that to finally arrive at this year, Summer of ’15, where these kids that have been a part of my life for 12 years,  7 years, 4 years and some a number in between, these are my kiddos’!  I love them and this summer and this year I have the privilege and joy of spending time with them, creating memories, laughing, drinking coffee, eating Brewster’s ice cream and most fun of all doing creative photo shoots and their specialized senior photos as well.  We have already had 2 outings and a third happens this Sunday.  These kids are truly getting a senior experience that most likely might never happen again, nor could I ever dreamed of having.  So thank you Lord for your unexpected ways, the twist and the turns and the relationships I’ve made along the way.  I’m looking forward to many more fun times this year before you all graduate and head off to college.  I love you all and look forward to photographing you and creating a senior portrait experience like no other with you.

Isabella Lee, Bearden High School, Sophomore Ambassador, Noelle Bell Photography

I’m so very excited to have Isabella on my team as an ambassador for Noelle Bell Photography.  Isabella is a part of the youth group that I work with and has such a beautiful heart.  She is half mexican and been to Tijuana, Mexico with Fellowship church 9 times now.  She has such a heart for the kids both there and here.  She sweet spirit and her smile can light up the room.  Here are a few images from her ambassador shoot downtown in Knoxville, TN.

We started out in a field of yellow flowers with my new purple chair.

Then we headed downtown to check out the old city and capture some images there.  Here are two of my favorites from that part of the session.

What do you do when it rains the day of your senior portrait photo shoot?

Rain, we know it helps to make the grass grow, the flowers bloom and it cools off the hot temperatures in the humid summer air.   However it’s not usually what you are looking for on the day of your senior portrait shoot.  It can however be a beautiful thing!  That is what Raegan, her mom and I discovered when I photographed her for her senior ambassador high school portrait session.  We knew the rain was headed our way, but it looked like it would miss us or just pass right over.

Here are some of the images we captured when the sun was still out.

And this is the one right before the rain came.

And when the rain did come we were by the pavilion, and a big one at that.  But like I said, sometimes the rain is a happy accident that you get to enjoy.  We took the opportunity of the rain to take some shots of Raegan in the rain, and WOW!

So sometimes you get amazing!  And now Raegan can check taking pictures in the rain off her bucket list.  🙂

Most Memorable Images of 2013, Noelle Bell Photography, Knoxville TN

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!

Sydney Faulkenberry, Class of 2014 Senior Karns High School, Knoxville TN

This past year getting to know Sydney Faulkenberry has been a lot of fun.  She has a gorgeous smile, is very confident and speaks her mind.  To a northern gal like me that is speaking my language.   Sydney is a class of 2014 senior at Karns High School, she is a swimmer and she comfotable with who she is.  Because Sydney is one of Noelle Bell Photography‘s senior spokesmodel’s we did multiple sessions.  We had a lot of fun capturing her first session where she rocked her images both in the studio and in a field of tall wheat grass.

Then we did her outdoor sessions in the summer and captured some beautiful images.  Sydney wanted a barn for the outdoor session and I absolutely love the one of her in the loft with the golden light of the evening sun shining on her, as well as the field shots.  We had some beautiful sunset so the warm tones were beautiful as they hit her already blonde hair.

The final session we decided to head to the UT Aquatics center where the Karns High School Swim Team practices and they graciously allowed us to go in as there were no events going on.  Sydney got in some great practice on her strokes, and we played with different angles, and these were some of the favorites.  I loved capturing these shots and had a blast even though I did get a parking ticket.

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 Senior Portraits Halls High School Knoxville TN Class of 2014

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.
