my Photographic Journey in
by, George Kuchler
I used to love looking forward to all the "Next Chapters" in my life when I was young. I hate how those chapters get fewer and fewer when you are older. Life just seems like bl;ah and we get older. I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHING SENIORS because I get to celebrate their next chapter with them by memorializing the NOW
Right now if you are a high school senior the world is changing right under your nose. The simple fact that you are becoming an adult is a HUGE DEAL! I mean cmon....you can't drink at 18 but hey you can fight for your country! :)
I created an experience for my high school seniors that I am truly proud of. I have always been tired of the "same old same old" way of taking pictures, so creating anything uniquely mine is impressive. Today I have a senior driving in town from Baton Rouge and we are going to have a blast. I like to experience my city from all angles and we will be doing just that. It's fun for me to bring parents to locations they have never been to before, yet they have lived in New Orleans their entire lives.
One thing is for certain, your senior casuals will not look anything like your friends images because they went to the school photographer. I have friends in the industry that are school photographers and I have no disrespect for them, but our demands are very different. They have contract obligations to meet and I do not. They need to schedule a tight time frame to fit all of the senior classmates in their schedule before the deadline of the yearbook arrives.
My experience is WAAAAY MORE CHILL!
I can take a couple of hours with you and your parents to drive around downtown because I don't have the same demands. We can create awesome fashionable imagery that showcases the best version of YOU because you are relaxed and laughing with me the entire time. I dig how downtown New Orleans offers us so many colors and textures for us to create images with. Your outfits will have no problems working with a building, back street or waterway as your background. A big portion of your background will be the weather. You will always remember that awesome sunset we caught in the background or the rain that came down right at the end and you danced in the street!
*** Side Note
I have a studio as well so, if you did take your cap & gown or Tux images with your school photographer and you are not happy with them.....I'll redo them in my studio absolutely FREE! Just schedule your casuals with me and lets create better looking images of you in my studio and you'll have the perfect wallets for your friends and family.
Your next chapter is here so why not have the best senior casual experience in New Orleans for your going away party! OK, maybe not going away...but you get the point.
See you soon! Let's Do This!

Lindsey had a beautiful session with the golden light to finish it off. I always love it when we are having fun taking pictures and the sky just gets better and better as the sun is going down. I have way too many favs from this session but I had to share some with you today. Thanks Lindsey for the fabulous session!. Enjoy! #NotTheSchoolPhotographer
I have watched Sydney grow up over the years and I cannot believe she is graduating high school. I love her senior casuals because the images showcase her inner personality. How can you look at her images and not remember that beautiful smile of hers?! #NotTheSchoolPhotographer
This is Ainsley. She is as sweet of a person as she looks in the images. I always love it when my clients bring props or anything in general that applies to you and your personality. The more you bring to the table, the more genuine your imagery will be. The day was absolutely stunning as the golden sun painted the background for us to work in. Every outfit Ainsley wore was eye catching and trendy. This is always a plus because instantly you become a model. You don't need a ton of outfits just 3 or 4 that really showcase you and your style. Ainsley I Thank You for creating your senior casual experience with me. :)
Ok, so quick story. when I was dating my lovely wife Elizabeth, she was baby sitting these cute baby twin baby boys next door to where she lived. Their names were Josh and Alex. They have always been referred to as "The Bienvenu Twins." Well fast forward to today and they have become these two super smart good looking boys! Trust me when I tell you their futures are going to be bright! The only aspect of them that is a problem is how they call me Mr. George, but their dad raised them correctly and I'll have to deal with their good manners. :)
I am proud not only know these guys but to have captured their essence as brothers in their senior pictures. Anybody can go to a studio and pose with a plastic 2017 prop. My seniors come to me for a "REAL EXPERIENCE."
I give you...Josh and Alex.

These 16 year old girls were pampered in style with hair and makeup then we had a fun relaxing session in the GK studio! It's hot outside so being in the cool studio with music, refreshments and snacks made the GK Junior Model Experience super fun. All the girls have memories with each other way beyond some cool images. The laughter from joking around with numerous selfies was undeniable fun!
This year we are creating an experience unlike any other studio in town. When you become a GK Senior Model, your name is entered in the fedora for a chance to win our "New Orleans Experience" once you refer (3) seniors to become a GK Senior Model. The package is on the way to becoming total AWESOMENESS! Lets just say...you, some friends, a limo, dinner, blah blah blah. :) I will reveal all of the details once everything is finalized with my friends from all around town.
Ava is simply a beautiful young lady! Her spirit is just as beautiful and these images show it! The black and white image shows her scar from recent back surgery and she is proud to show it off. Nothing is going to stop her from being the beautiful bright star which she is! I cannot wait to create stunning images for her senior portraits.
Ava wanted to showcase her scar from her recent back surgery. The confidence and strength this girl has should be admired by many women. I have known her since she was younger and I can tell you she comes from a long line of strong beautiful women. :)
This image makes me want to embrace life to it's fullest and not sweat the little things.

School Photographer = Yearbook Image "THAT'S IT"
For years I have been photographing high school seniors the way THEY want to be photographed. My seniors want to have fun while changing clothes several times, so they have many images to share with friends and family. Lets face it...high school is only 4 years then you are off to college. The next time I'll see you is for your wedding. :) I always take care of my seniors when they come back as a bride or groom!
