Another lovely spokesmodel to help spread the word about Kristen Buchmann Photography senior pictures for the class of 2010! Rachel, her mom, and had a great time during Rachel’s spokesmodel shoot exploring around and playing around with fun photo locations…and sorting through all of Rachel’s fun outfits and accessories. (She says that much of her wardrobe consisted of items borrowed from friends! What great friends to share their stuff.) Rachel did a fantastic job, as you will see below, posing glamorously in front of a black and white mural, playing around in a park fountain, “fixing” her hair by using a window as a mirror…(come to think of that, she did that mirror stuff for real and for posing at times! lol.) Congratulations on getting ready to start your senior year, Rachel, and thanks again for the fun time.

Rose | {Portrait Music Video}

Oh, yes, that’s right. Rose now has her own music video ;)…Her own portrait music video, that is. It’s a little gift from me to her…and whenever any of you have a wedding with me as your wedding photographer or any portrait session with me, you’ll have the option to have your very own portrait […]

It’s a little gift from me to her…and whenever any of you have a wedding with me as your wedding photographer or any portrait session with me, you’ll have the option to have your very own portrait music video too! I’m always looking for new and exciting ways to preserve and cherish your portrait memories.

If you were following the posts on my old blog, you would have seen one of Rose’s photos as a teaser, announcing the pending arrival of this new blog.

If you were following the posts on my old blog, you would have seen one of Rose’s photos as a teaser, announcing the pending arrival of this new blog. Well, now you’ll get to see more of my favorite photos from my newest spokesmodel’s junior session. (Yes, we had her junior year session very late in the year, but it was well worth it, and this sweet and beautiful gal is ready to represent Kristen Buchmann Photography in full force!)

You know how I say that there are no limits on outfit changes and that some girls bring their whole closets, well, Rose was one of them! We had such a fabulous time rummaging through her fun and funky styles, remembering that we would have her senior year shoot to show off some of her fab style too.

It was a joy getting to know Rose and all of her talents and favorite things in life. I adore her spirit and beautiful personality and how much fun we had switching photographic plans in a pinch as the sun played with us, hiding behind clouds and then showing itself for brief moments. Thanks for going with the flow, Rose, and playing along with my crazy ideas! You were awesome.

Introducing: Tyler. He graduates in just days, and I had the pleasure of photographing his senior portraits during the last few moments of his senior year. He loves his car, his fantastic Mustang that he has been working on for quite some time, so we were sure to capture plenty of shots with him and his own wheels. We had a ton of fun traveling around to plenty of different locations during the shoot, giving his senior portraits a variety of tastes, from city/urban settings to the beach. Tyler was open to trying anything, so we got to play with some fun lighting and other photographic tools as we raced the sunset. Here are a few of my faves from the session:

A cool reflection shot of Tyler and his Mustang:

Okay, so I just can’t get over this one! No, I did not photoshop in a seagull flying overhead. That was all in God’s perfect timing…and no, the sunset isn’t fake, and this portrait  isn’t taken in front of a green screen or something. It was just all in the timing, Tyler’s cool posing technique, the race against the sun, fun lighting, and the beauty God made, all while I was rushing around in a fun frenzy to make the most of every moment. Aaaahhh…I love the satisfaction of capturing that ideal photographic moment, especially when it was a hurried afterthought!

Well, here it is, folks: the new blog for Kristen Buchmann Photography! I will continue to revamp it a bit as time allows, but I just can’t wait any longer before launching it. For those of you interested in seeing my old blog, you may find it here: www.kristenbuchmannphotography.com/blog. (Those of you who have been following it know that I really didn’t have time to update it often.)

Although I won’t make any promises, I do plan to update this blog more frequently with photos from recent and maybe even past weddings and portrait shoots, great promotions and new products, along with perhaps some personal happenings and updates. So…please plan to visit here often for all of the latest peaks into my photography!

And because posts are always more fun with a photo, here is one for you to enjoy:
