Downtown Alexandria Maternity Session

January 16, 2019

I can’t begin to express what Chris and Kristin mean to Ryan and me (and David) so I was thrilled when they asked me to capture their growing family this winter! These two are expecting their first baby boy in February. Spoiler alert…. he came early and graced us with his presence on New Year’s Eve!! I’m so glad we managed to get their maternity portraits done before he arrived! We decided on taking their portraits in downtown Alexandria – which turned out to be a perfect location. The area was decorated for the holidays and it wasn’t too chilly of a day, but enough that the crowds were low. 

Kristin is the epitome of how pregnancy should look! She is glowing, full of excitement and anticipation, and just beautiful. I’m so impressed with her. Baby J is so lucky to have her as a mama!!! And Chris – well, he’s a goofball, but he’s going to be a great dad. This little boy is so lucky these two wonderful people are his parents. Chris and Kristin – thank you for letting me capture another special moment in your lifetime. I’m so happy to call you both friends and have you join us on this journey of parenthood. We can’t wait to watch J. grow up and see you two take on the roles you were made to have.

"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."

"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."
