Isabel Siegel, Bearden High School Senior Class of 2016, Noelle Bell Photography Knoxville TN

When I had the opportunity to photograph Isabel Siegel, I was thrilled.  I’ve watched this beautiful young lady grow since she came to Fellowship Church in 6th grade.   Not only is she a beautiful young lady but she is an incredibly talented girl with a huge heart for kids, missions and caring for others.   Isabel’s introduction to me was at the Believe conference in seventh grade.  I was one of the drivers and she wrote in the backseat between two other girls I’ve had since first grade.  My copilot Mandy and I sang and danced, (yes while driving), to Bye Bye-Bye, by InSync.   I’m pretty sure they all thought we were crazy and we got the strangest looks, but let me tell you on the way home after about the sixth time they had heard the song, they were dancing and singing along in the backseat.  Here’s a picture of them back in middle school.  Izzy was so fashionable with her orange boa!!

Isabel was not able to participate in all of the model shoots, but she did make it for scouting trip and the group shoot at the sunflower field.  Here’s some images from that adventure.

Isabel’s senior session was interesting to say the least.  She was the only senior that experienced her senior portrait photographer photographing her while still in a cast that wrapped around her elbow.  My next-door neighbor’s son came and helped me out by holding a reflector carrying my gear, (all while being 9 and making us laugh mind you).  We laughed a lot.  I also learned that if you’re going to balance your camera on your SLICK cast, you must have something on the cast so that your camera does not slide back and forth on your cast!  Oooiwwwww.

Isabel was incredibly patient with me and we had beautiful weather for her session.   We photographed the first half of her session at the Historic Southern Railway Station in downtown Knoxville.  Izzy showed up in denim shorts and a dark gray T-shirt and before she changed I asked her if we could capture some images of her in the outfit she had come in.   When I think of Isabel I think of a girl comfortable in her own skin, wearing Chaco’s as she was that day and with her long hair down, smiling.  One of the images we captured in that outfit was her favorite image from the entire session.

The second part of Isabel’s senior session was photographed downtown at Allan Jones Aquatic Center .   I photographed both her and Taylor Blake the same day.  The kids didn’t laugh too bad at my ridiculous drawings,  (just so you know I am NOT a gifted artist when it comes to drawing.)  I had sketched out poses I really wanted to capture her in.  Here’s the final image from my favorite pose, but the sketch, well it was sketchy…

We wound up not having anyone there at the pool that day by some miracle so not only did we capture some amazing images in and out of the pool to start with but the water calmed down and we were able to get perfect reflection images.

We ended with a few action shots of Isabel in the water practicing for water polo.  Izzy swam on the water polo team for her year-round swim team in the past but starting her junior year, had joined Bearden High School‘s water polo team.  I only got to see her play twice but the team came second in the State championship.

I can’t wait to watch Isabel as she heads off to Milligan College in the fall to pursue becoming a nurse.  She has signed with Milligan College and I hope that when I’m up visiting my father-in-law, I’ll be able to stop by and grab lunch and hear all about her new adventures there.  May you always know you are loved and a beautiful daughter of the King Isabel.  I have loved being a part of your life.

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.

Isabella Lee, Class of 2017, Extreme Sports Portraits, Noelle Bell Photography

Noelle Bell Photography has had a lot of fun doing extreme sports portraits with my seniors this past year and I wanted to play around with another sport and lighting set up on a different background.  I asked Isabella to come in earlier this year after softball practice and we had a lot of fun capturing some extreme sports portraits of her in her softball uniforms.

I can’t wait to see what the next session will look like as I’m excited to add more sports with my 2016 seniors.

Bearden Water Polo, Isabel Siegel, Noelle Bell Photography

This past Friday was a first for me.  I have been to lots of swimming, diving and other water sport events, but never have I been to a water polo match.  So when I found out that one of my girls, Isabel Siegel, was going to be on the Bearden High School water polo team I had to come to a game to check it out.  Of course I was brought my camera and it took some time to figure out how the game worked, but I think I have a good grasp on the game now.  The fun thing was that in this match, Isabel was playing against her old year-round water polo team that she used to be on.

Here are some pictures from the game.

Cameron Kuerschen, Grace Christian Academy, Senior Portraits, Noelle Bell Photography

Noelle Bell Photography had a wonderful time capturing Cameron Kuerschen’s senior pictures this last month.  Cameron will be graduating from Grace Christian Academy in May and will head off to East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, TN in the fall to play football there.

We started his senior portraits at Grace Christian Academy on the football field and captured some gritty and casual pictures with him in his football jersey.  The sun was shining high in the sky and though it was a little bright we captured some amazing images both on the field and around the stadium.  Cameron was so patient with me and his mom as we plotted out each image.

Here are some images from the field at Grace Christian Academy.

We ended the senior session with some images when we had the most magnificent sunset where all the clouds in the sky seemed to point right to Cameron.

And this was by far a favorite image of mine.  I love to capture an image of the parent with their soon to be graduate, and this is an image of Kathy and Cameron with that beautiful sunset in the background.  Kathy is a wonderful mom that has done a great job in raising her son to be sweet and kind and well-behaved.  (I was called ma’am a lot by Cameron)  Thank you so much for letting me capture what I know will be a special moment for you in years to come….letterman jacket and all!  Senior Pictures, Senior Boy, Football, Field, Barn, Noelle Bell Photography, Mother and SonThis was such a fun senior session and I can’t wait for them to see these images in their finished products.
