I honestly cannot believe that 2016 is over! Well, almost anyway. It has been such an amazing first year back in business and I can’t thank my fantastic clients enough! You all are the most beautiful people I’ve had the honor of knowing and getting to celebrate so many special moments – engagements, weddings, baby bumps, little nuggets, mother and fatherhood, graduations and being in love – with each of you. You all hold such a special place in my heart and I am overwhelmed when I look back at this year. 

Putting all these images together makes me so happy – happy to see the love I’ve been able to capture, the growth I’ve made in my images + style (even if it’s not perfect yet!) and these images make me so happy for the year ahead of me. This year I got to shoot in Ohio, in Newport News, Yorktown, Silver Spring, Fredericksburg, Georgetown, Frederick MD, the Outer Banks, Front Royal, Alexandria + Stafford. I second shot two weddings with photographers I’d never met before. I attended two workshops and my first styled shoot (coming to the blog in 2017!). I look forward to getting to travel even more throughout 2017 and all the adventures ahead for each of you!  I truly believe 2017 is going to be even better but for now, let’s not move too fast and just celebrate what a year it’s been together! 

Here’s a few of my favorite shots from the 2016 year! Which is your favorite?

"I would highly recommend K. Dowler Photography. Her mixture of professionalism and artistry is exceptional, and she makes her clients feel at ease through what could have easily been a trying experience."

-Josh Colbert

"How lucky we were to win a session with her in a silent auction. She was so calm and flexible with my family, grandparent, husband, myself, 3 year old and 16 month old. She really captured our family's personality in all her photos. We can't wait to use her again! Thanks Kristina!"

-Claire Bolek

"I really enjoyed working with Kristina throughout this process. Graduating from college is something that only happens once, and I believe that there is no one better that I could have asked to take such personal pictures and capture such personal memories."
