Working from Home

December 3, 2018 When I tell people that I work from home, the first response is generally how lucky I am. And while I am – and I’m very grateful for the opportunity – there’s a lot of realities that others don’t see every day. Working from home has been wonderful up...

Rustic Senior Portraits

November 26, 2018 Well, now it’s actually official. Kristin is a senior!! I can’t deny it any longer. We finished up her senior portraits at our grandparent’s farm this fall (you can see her beach senior portraits here!) and it was so much fun. Although it was a...

Couple’s Portraits at James Madison University

November 12, 2018 Ashley and Ian are so special to me. Ashley's my cousin (if you haven't been on the blog before) and Ian's her fantastic boyfriend. They've just celebrated 5 years of dating and so, of course, it was time to update their portraits! I'm pretty sure...

Chatham Manor Family Portraits

October 22, 2018 Andrew and Nicole and their godchildren are seriously some of my favorite people. I was SO excited when Nicole emailed me to let me know it was time for them to update their portraits. We first did a session together fall of 2016 (I really hope this...

Downtown Fredericksburg Headshots

October 17, 2018 One of my favorite things in the world is when my best friends ask me to take their pictures. Whether it's headshots, a couple's session, or some just for fun, it feels like SUCH an honor to be able to capture these moments for them. And it means a...

Living with FPIES

October 14, 2018 Last week on social media, I shared that David has FPIES, which is a food allergy/type of allergic reaction. He cannot eat oats or rice (I can't either since I'm currently still breastfeeding). I shared about some of my feelings related to his...

Outer Banks Senior Portraits

  September 4, 2018 I can't believe it's already time for another one of my cousin's senior portraits! When Kristin came to me and asked if I would take some portraits of her in her prom dress while we were on our family vacation, I was so excited!!! One because I...

Winner Family | Spring Family Portraits

May 2, 2018 Phew, it's been a few weeks since I blogged! Whoops...! It's harder than I thought to work with little man here, but that's okay! I am finally getting back into the swing of things and what better family to kick of my spring portraits with than the Winner...

David’s First Month

  February 22, 2018 How is it possible our little man is one month old? I can't believe it! It feels like just yesterday we were working hard in the hospital to bring him into the world. A WHOLE MONTH has passed since then and David? We're more in love with you than...

David’s Newborn Portraits

February 20, 2018 When I found out I was pregnant, there was no question I wanted Stephanie Tignor to do our newborn portraits. Not only do I work with her, but she is seriously the BEST. Capturing our little guy in the first two weeks of life was so important to me -...

"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."
