Nate Miljenovic’s senior model portraits

Recently, I had the wonderful opportunity to take senior pictures for one of my former students at Thursday Connection. When I met Nate, he was a freshman, and now he is about to graduate and head to NJ for college.  We took a few cap and gown images for his mom, but after taking the “serious” photos, we had a bit of fun in the studio.

His shoot included a leather jacket and a cool pair of shades.  We captured some awesome model shots in black and white.

The photos turned out great and it was a blast.  It’s been fun to watch you grow up these last few years Nate.  I wish you all the best of luck as you pursue a degree in health science and nutrition and then move on to becoming a nutritionalist to help kids who struggle with diabetes.

Two Dogs, Peanut Butter, and a Camera

My friend Nola and her daughter’s dogs came for a shoot here at the studio.  The dogs are Dapple Dachshunds and their names are Gray and Charlie.

Gray is the younger of the two and being the age of — is still considered a puppy. And with puppies it is expected to have high levels of energy however not what I had expected under the circumstances. Gray, two days prior to the shoot, had broken two bones in his paw by jumping on the bed and bounced off ending with a rough landing. He has been in doggy bed rest since the situation and was put on two different medications for the injury. Considering that had happened to the poor, little guy a calm evening was expected….

WRONG!!!

A broken paw couldn’t stop this dog from running wild, jumping on things, and getting into everything. It was as if a toddler was kept still for a week and the energy exploded out all at once. Chasing the dogs was not helping because it would cause more trouble but Nola’s daughter saved the day with her smart idea. Peanut butter is key to a dog’s heart and their attention span. The majority of the pictures were of the dogs sticking their tongue out, but that’s alright because it adds personality!

Here is a favorite of the both of them towards the end of the shoot.

Carson Sanders, Senior Pictures, Noelle Bell Photography, HVA

Carson what to say about Carson!?   I have had this kid in Sunday school ever since he was in second grade.   I’ve gotten to know his family as I photographed his older sisters Katie for her senior portraits.  Now it was time for Carson’s senior pictures.  We had a lot of fun starting at Noelle Bell Photography where we captured some images of Carson in his Harden Valley Academy marching band uniform.

Afterwards Carson changed into something casual to take a couple portraits both in the studio and then a few outside behind the studio as we had some beautiful fall colors in the background.
It was a lot of fun to photograph this with my intern Carissa I have also had her ever since she was a rising first grader in Sunday school.  She was my intern all semester so let me tell you this session especially so entertaining because everybody knew each other from way back so we just had a blast.
After that was all done we decided to take some senior portraits on the road not literally the road but we went just a little bit around the corner and got some sun pictures of him playing the trumpet outside at night.

And then I just let Carson play with fire.  Carissa and I took pictures and laughed at how much fun he was having.   There are really not any great pictures from this because my wrist was pretty much worn out by this time, so I just took some pictures of him in the fire.  We did do a second set with Carson because I wanted to get a few of him and his favorite hoodie!!  It’s his mom’s favorite outfit of all time of Carson’s!!   He he he…I was just thankful that his shirts didn’t need ironing, even if they both were green.  😂
And here is Amy’s favorite from the second half of the session.

Carson I just want to say that I have loved watching you grow up in the Lord and in life.  I’m so excited to see what God’s going to do with you in the future even if you do grow your hair long. 😉

Madeline Musico, Webb School of Knoxville, Class of 2015 Senior Portraits, Noelle Bell Photography

I am so happy to share some of Madeline’s senior portrait images. She is a stunningly beautiful and very talented young lady who attends Webb School of Knoxville who Noelle Bell Photography had the privilege of photographing in the fall with a theatrical like second shoot scheduled for the spring.  Madeline lived in Texas before this where she was involved in competitive theatrical programs, so she came to Knoxville, TN with star quality. We didn’t get the second shoot in between the craziness of so many college applications, college visit and her schedule with the spring play she was in at Webb. Her mom came in and to look at the images and she was blown away by how beautiful her daughter was.

Here are some of the images from the shoot we did at Noelle Bell Photography’s studio.

I love how gorgeous this image is and sultry look in her eyes is killer!

Lindsay’s Senior Pictures, Halls High School, Knoxville TN

It is wonderful when you have a high school senior to work with who becomes a friend (and fellow coffee lover!) and that is exactly what Lindsay is.  She is an amazing young lady both inside and out and beauty comes flooding from her heart.  It was a joy to see her this past year grow and graduate and now get ready to head to ETSU for college.

Here are some of my favorite images from Lindsay’s high school senior portraits.  She was a wonderful ambassador for me and I loved having a few “extra” sessions with her.

You can see some of my fav’s from her ambassador session here.  https://bellphotos.wordpress.com/2013/08/31/lindsay-holt-halls-high-school-2014-senior-spokesmodel-noelle-bell-photography/

Madison Ivey, Clinton High School Class of 2014 Senior

This past year Madison was a spokesmodel for Noelle Bell Photography and we have had a blast over the year!  It all began back in February of last year when we did a fun shoot downtown with one of my 2013 senior spokesmodels, Caitlin Clayton and her mom Suzanne Clayton who is a hair and makeup artist.  Suzanne did a fun look for Madison and then we began the fun.  Madison is a dancer at the Dream Dance studio in Clinton, TN.

Here is the link to the blog post from the February shoot in downtown Knoxville, TN.  http://bit.ly/1hfVrqD

And here are a few images I could not share at the February shoot, but I can now.

Here is the link to the blog post from her first senior spokesmodel shoot in downtown Clinton, TN.  http://bit.ly/1qZgULA

This past year I had an opportunity to partner with Vintage Southern to photograph their clothes with some of my high school seniors and Madison was able to come along.  Here are a few of my favorite images from that shoot.

Before her senior session I had an opportunity to capture some images inside the Historic Tennessee Theatre of two of Bella Boutique’s prom dresses and Madison was thrilled as a dancer to be able to actually dance on the stage of the TN Theatre.  She has her heart set on coming back to dance professionally there someday.   The amazing Raymie Alsobrooks was there to do hair and makeup for this shoot and she was amazing!   Here are some of the images from that shoot.

And finally came her senior session.  Outside in the beautiful sun, with a bunch of fun outfits and then on into the studio for the second set of images.  Man, we really had a blast!
