Best of 2019 Portraits | Virginia Wedding Photographer | Kellie Holden Photography

Each year, I get the honor of photographing so many beautiful families, seniors, babies, and lots of pups!! Steven and I LOVE our furry clients and we always joke they are our favorites to photograph!! Although my primary focus is weddings and engagements, I cannot help myself from documenting these important milestones!

At the end of each year, one of my favorite things is to back through my client galleries and select my favorite images. This process takes such a long time, but it’s so rewarding! Going back through my work each year allows me to reflect on what I’ve accomplished, as well as see what I need to improve on. One of my favorite aspects of this career is always knowing I can improve on the quality of images, my workflow, client relationships, and SO much more! I want to be constantly growing as a photographer, and I love that new challenge every single year!

2020 will be my 5th year as a full time photographer, which means I have spent A LOT of time behind a camera. I never take it for granted being able to photograph every single, family, senior, and couple who trusts me to capture these special memories for them! Going back through my work reminds me that 1) I absolutely LOVE what I do & 2) that as long as I am able to capture these memories, that is all that matters.

Enjoy some of my favorites from the year 2019! There is everything from family, seniors, sweet babies, and more all mixed in! If you would love to follow along on the new adventures for 2020, make sure you follow along in Instagram!
