From the click of an iPhone screen to the press of a camera button, her passion evolved into a greater picture.

People notice when you really love something. [That] can show through what you create, and it’s what makes you happy, so you’re bound to make something great”

— CHS senior Bella Null

For Coppell High School senior Bella Null photography was once a mere interest, until she got her hands on a camerasparking her zeal for the art. These advancements influenced her to create a business of her own.

“[I] started [photography] on my phone and took pictures all the time whenever I went out,” Null said. “Then my mom bought herself a camera when I was in seventh grade [at Coppell Middle School North]. She never actually [got into photography], so the more I kept borrowing [the camera], it eventually just became mine.”

Not only was ownership of a camera a factor for the production of her business, but the knowledge she gained from being in Round-Up yearbook staff has helped her as well.

“[Yearbook] helped me learn a lot of strategies and how to use the camera,” Null said.

In Principles of Arts, A/V Tech and Communications as a freshmen, Null learned about different techniques, such as leading lines, that pertained to the photography subject as well. She took advantage of her knowledge and applied it to enhance the quality of her photos.

Null also has a strong support system of people who have played a role in her journey of creating and maintaining her business.

“Family members have definitely been reaching out in helping me get more business and [letting me] take their holiday photos, things like that help a lot,” Null said. “[My friends] have always been very supportive of my passion as well, and they’re always willing to help me practice honing my skills.”

CHS senior and close friend Francesca Tutino recognized Null’s growth alongside the growth in her business. 

“Bella used to be really shy. Through finding this passion of photography, she has been able to open up more and show who she truly is,” Tutino said. “Since she has to talk to a lot of people that she isn’t really close with, she grew out of her shyness, is now great at starting conversations and making you feel like you’ve made a new friend.”

Null created a whole new goal; she wants CHS students who have considered making more out of their dreams to know that their work won’t go unnoticed.

People notice when you really love something,” Null said. “[That] can show through what you create because you love doing [your passion], and it’s what makes you happy, so you’re bound to make something great.”
