My name is Kindell Buchanan and Postcards & Daydreams is a blog I created to share my travel experiences, fitness knowledge, photography skills, and the journey of becoming my own boss and living a mobile lifestyle. I’m from a small West Texas town called Canyon, and I currently live in the greater Nashville area (Spring Hill, TN) with my husband Kyle and our four-legged furry son, Aries.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Mass Media from Hardin-Simmons University and I am currently working toward a certificate in Professional Photography from New York Institute of Photography and a Health & Wellness certification from NAFC. I got my start working in photography in 2012 with a yearbook company, and since 2013 have been working for a company that specializes in Greek Life composite portraits. I am also a freelance photojournalist currently covering high school sports for a local news source.
Before I turned to photography as a career, I was working as a barista for about 10 years while trying to make my way into the audio engineering world and dabbling in graphic design on the side. Sounds like I have my hands in too many cookie jars, huh? Well, I’m also a lifeguard and a half-marathoner! I’m just a girl that loves adventures and learning new things.
I travel often for work and love to find new ways to make life on the road easier and more comfortable — I will be sharing my tricks and hacks with you along the way!
I love running in cold weather and I live for coffee in the morning (iced coffee!) and red wine in the evening. My favorite things are record store browsing with my husband, new running shoes and workout outfits, exploring new cities with my camera, chips and salsa with margaritas, and spending 3 hours in Target buying “all the things.”
