Fall Family Session at Government Island
January 8, 2018

I was so excited when Tammy emailed me asking if I had any last minute availability for her family’s portrait session this fall. She told me that every year they do portraits to use as gifts for the holidays and I just LOVED that idea! We had a great time exploring Government Island here in Stafford together while capturing this sweet family and I’m so excited to finally be able to share these images now that the holidays are over. 🙂 

I love that their session includes Tammy, her husband and their three boys as well as her sister, husband and their new baby! It was so much fun getting to see all the different interactions and relationships – something that I just love to capture in extended family sessions! Look at how adorable these boys are!! 

And these new parents… I mean, really?! So, so sweet! 

Portrait sessions are hard for kids but I know that boys really don’t tend to get into them much – but these three were SO good! And they’re super cute, which made my job so easy!!

When Tammy inquired, she said she wanted some nice posed portraits but also wanted to make sure we captured the essence of the family and I think we did just that – they were full of laughter and energy and I seriously just love this family!!

"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."
