Creativity taking shape – Maddy Ramsey

Here is a second sneak peek at Maddy’s design in progress.  Maddy had just started working on the bottom half the next time she came to the studio.  Here is the second stage of the dress design process.  It has been fun watching this take shape and watching Maddy work.

These babies were a basket of fun! Noelle Bell Photography was able to capture plenty of adorableness for Happy Paws Kitten Rescue once again, along with the collaboration of Flip Flop Social Productions!

Playing with six precious kittens and watching them be especially cute is hardly what we would call work, but hey somebody’s gotta do it, and Noelle Bell Photography gladly volunteers! We were able to capture some irresistibly cute moments with these little ones!

After all the kitten fun, it was time to show off their sweet mama cat, Bonnie. She was very timid and showed signs of abuse, so her foster mom stayed by her side so Noelle Bell Photography could capture her beauty for Happy Paws Kitten Rescue to share with others!

Creativity takes on a unique form – Designer – Maddy Ramsey

I’d like to take a moment to brag on one of my seniors, Maddy Ramsey, who will be a senior at Hardin Valley this fall.  Maddy agreed to design a few pieces for me here at Noelle Bell Photography.  Maddy has already been accepted into the Fashion Institue of Design & Merchandising, (FIDM) when she finishes high school, and I’m happy to say she is already designing pieces. Here is a little more about her if you want to hear Maddy’s story and passion for design.

Maddy already had an idea for the first piece she wanted to do. She wanted to design a dress made out of newspaper. She had an idea and I had a dress and a skirt that wound up working perfectly for the foundation of the piece. She did the rest from there.

These are some pictures from the first week we started working on this, and by we I mean Maddy!  I only folded some newspaper.  She started back cutting the dress and using the top for the form.

This has been months in the making, and I have so many times wanted to post a picture, spill the beans on what was coming, but I managed to hold it in until it was finished.

Stay tuned in the coming days to see the rest of the dress unveiled and slowly took shape.  Just yesterday Maddy modeled the dress so pictures as well will be coming very soon!

What a fun video reveal – time for banners!

What fun it was to show up and have a Banner Reveal for the three seniors on the Carter High School softball team.  Thanks to the rest of the team for helping me show them off to the girls.  They loved them!

Check out the top 17 favorite Images from 2017!

Every year I like to go back and review my images from the year and find some of my favorite ones.  At the end of the 2017 I had many things on my plate including a family wedding, sessions and spending quality time with my niece and my family.  In the midst of all that, this annual thing got forgotten.  So here finally are my 17 favorite images from 2017.

Each one of these images holds a story, a memory and a feeling.  I hope that when you come to the end of the year you will be able to remember some of the highlights, whether that be getting your senior portraits taken, spending time with family or taking some time to photograph something you normally wouldn’t.

Enjoy!  🙂

Michael’s senior pictures, SailAway Academy, Class of 2018

Michael’s senior portrait session was a lot of fun and full of challenges!  We had crazy gusty wind, I had to search for greenery to use in the shoot and we needed dad to guide traffic while we photographed Michael in his truck off the road right past a blind curve. Thank you Rob for being such a huge help that day.  We were able to find a spot in downtown in Lenoir City where we could stay out of the wind for what turned out to be the portrait they chose to hang on the wall.  It also highlighted his baby blue eyes and mom really wanted to see them shine in the pictures.

Senior Model – Bri Fritts, Lenoir City High School, class of 2018

I’m way behind on sharing the beautiful images of this lovely lady.  I met Bri when she was a junior on a fun Valentines styled shoot with one of my seniors and her group of friends.  Bri has by now almost finished up with her senior year of high school and is getting ready to head off on her own college adventure.

Bri joined the Noelle Bell Photography senior model team and we started off in the summer when Bri, who is a lifeguard, had an amazing tan!  Oh I remember the days of chilling by the pool and enjoying the sun.  I never was able to get as dark as Bri does though!  She looked amazing!  We did her model session near water so we could tie in her love for the water to her senior pictures.

We made sure to catch beautiful images and some fun personality pics too!

Then her senior session came and we had a perfect day.  The weather was nice, not terribly hot, but the evening light was stunning!  The Knoxville Botanical Gardens made for a perfect location to capture the mountains and the sunlight. I absolutely love this jumpsuit she chose.

We found some beautiful colors for the shoot and these three were some of the favorites that her mom and grandmother choose to showcase as a wall portrait.  It’s hard not to smile back at her while looking at these pictures.  This girl has a beautiful heart that shines from the inside out!

 

This was another image, not my normal look, but I wanted to catch that amazing sunlight spilling through the trees.

We capture a few more images downtown by the water before we headed to the bridge to capture what have become my favorite images from last year!  I love when people are willing to bring their prom dress to their senior shoot and let creativity happen!
