My name is Kindell Buchanan and Postcards & Daydreams is a blog I created to share my travel experiences, fitness knowledge, photography skills, and our journey of living a mostly mobile lifestyle. I grew up in a small West Texas town, and I currently live in the greater Nashville area with my husband Kyle and our doggy son, Aries.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Mass Media and Studio Art from Hardin-Simmons University and I am currently working toward a Health & Wellness certification from NAFC and also thinking about becoming a certified run coach in the future. I got my start working in photography in 2012 with a yearbook company, and since 2014 have been working for a company that specializes in Greek Life composite portraits. I am also a freelance sports and music photographer/photojournalist.
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 competitive masters track athlete and a half-marathoner for fun! Right now, I’m training for my first triathlon and doing my first Ironman 70.3 in 2022! I’m just a girl that loves adventures and learning new things.
I used to travel often for work and love to find new ways to make life on the road easier and more comfortable — I love to share tips and tricks that I learned along the way! While I don’t travel as much for work anymore, I currently work as a production manager for a photography company which allows me to work from home and occasionally from anywhere I want as long as there’s WIFI!
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.”
