KM Photo Studio Blog bio picture
  • WELCOME!

    Welcome to my blog! Here you will see sneak peeks of my sessions, casting calls for models & any other fun, fabulous events that might be going on!

    My name is Krystal & I live in Dallas with my husband, our two sons (4 years old & 1 year old) and our two fur babies (dog & cat). While I grew up in a small town in New Mexico, I now call Dallas, TX my home.

    I LOVE shoes, reading, running (mostly after my son) and may have a small addiction to diet coke.

    Most of my sessions are in the DFW area, but I often travel around Texas and New Mexico for sessions. I will gladly travel around the world if requested (and it won't be hard to convince me)!

    I absolutely love meeting new people and strive to form personal relationships with each and every person that I work with. One of my favorite parts of photography is sharing in such special, intimate moments. It truly means the world to me that people trust me with such meaningful moments and I do not take this for granted at all!

    Please feel free to browse through my work - leave comments, ask questions or send me a note! It would thrill me to sit down with you for a cup of coffee, a cold drink or even a big scoop of ice cream!

    I hope this gives you a little glimpse into my life and lets you see a little bit more about me.

2014 Spring Mini Sessions ~ Dallas, Richardson, Plano & Frisco ~ Outdoor Mini Sessions

**THIS IS A PINNED POST. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR THE MOST RECENT POSTS**

It’s time to start planning for 2014 Spring Mini Sessions! Newsletter recipients got first dibs at signing up beginning yesterday, and several spots have already been filled. This year, I will be offering three different days of spring mini-sessions at two different locations. The first weekend (April 26th & 27th) will be held in the Dallas Richardson area at a local park. It has beautiful wildflowers (often featuring bluebonnets), as well as trees, greenery and an overall gorgeous area. The second weekend (May 3rd) will be held in the Plano Frisco area at one of two locations. Once the flowers bloom, it will be decided which location is used – but both feature a large field, wildflowers and a more open space.

Here are the details!

All sessions will be outdoors and the weather should be beautiful at that time of year!

These are perfect for families, babies (not including newborns), maternity, engagement, children, high school seniors, pets and “just because”.

All of these photos are from the locations where the mini sessions will be held!

Mini-Sessions are booked on a first come, first served basis and always fill up quickly. Please don’t delay if you are wanting to book one of these! You can use the contact form (at the top of the page), reach me by email at krystal@kmphotostudio.com or call 972-200-3535. Can’t wait to see you!

*Due to the limited availability, all session fees are non-refundable and due upon booking. All mini sessions are booked on a first come, first served basis.*

Tyler & Elysia ~ Engagement Session ~ Dallas | Plano Engagement Photographer

I am so excited to share Tyler & Elysia’s engagement session! These two are such a gorgeous couple and are too cute together. We met up near White Rock Lake for their engagement session and had amazing weather. With the crazy temperature changes, high winds and rain that we’ve had lately, I was a little nervous that the weather would turn bad. But amazingly we had sunny skies and a light breeze for most of the session! Tyler & Elysia have been together for about 4 1/2 years and will be getting married later this fall. I am absolutely looking forward to their wedding and know it will be beautiful! It is very easy to see the love & happiness between these two. They even brought their dog, Shiner, to be a part of their engagement session. Here are just a few favorites from Tyler & Elysia’s session!:)

Lindsey ~ Newborn Baby Session ~ Plano | Frisco Newborn Baby Photographer

My clients have the most beautiful newborn babies. And I’m serious when I say the most adorable babies ever! The last time I “saw” Lindsey was at her beautiful mommy’s maternity session and since then I’ve eagerly been awaiting the news of her arrival. Sweet little Lindsey made her appearance just a few days before her official due date and I was able to meet her last week for her newborn session.  She was 6 days old the day of her session. Her mommy & daddy are completely in love with her and it was amazing seeing them in their new roles as parents.  Lindsey has the most beautiful skin color, the tiniest little features and was perfect during the session! I’m so happy that I’ll get to follow her throughout her first year and can’t wait to watch her grow! Here is a tiny peek into her newborn session!

Samuel ~ Newborn Session ~ Dallas | Plano Newborn Baby Photographer

Meet baby Samuel! He is the newest addition to one of my favorite little families who I’ve had the joy of photographing since big brother was 18 months old! I last saw this sweet family last June and was elated when Kara contacted me about a newborn session for their new little boy. Samuel was 8 days old on the day of his session and he was the perfect little subject. He was awake and alert when I first arrived, which made for sweet photos with big brother. After he was swaddled in a blanket, he fell fast asleep and stayed that way until the end of the session. He has the most amazing head full of hair and I loved documenting all of his tiny features from his nose to his toes!

Mike & Kara ~ Thank you so much for allowing me to be a tiny part of your lives and to follow your adorable boys! Hope you enjoy the little sneak peek of Samuel’s newborn session!

Gaylord Texan Resort Wedding ~ Valentine’s Day Wedding ~ Grapevine Wedding Photographer

On Valentine’s Day, I had the pleasure of working alongside William Bichara for this beautiful wedding held at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, TX. This wedding was absolutely beautiful! There were so many perfect little details to be seen: flowers that were imported in to the country, a cake adorned with beads, and centerpieces featuring feathers. No detail was overlooked! I spent the afternoon with the beautiful bride as she got ready for her big moment. Their ceremony was held in the Yellow Rose Pavilion inside the Gaylord Texan Resort. It had the most beautiful natural light streaming in from the giant atrium style roof. After the ceremony, their guests were ushered in to a small ballroom directly by the pavilion for the wonderful dinner. It was a perfect, intimate Valentine’s Day wedding! Here are some of my favorite moments from their wedding.

Jase ~ Family & 7 Month Session ~ Plano | McKinney Baby Photographer

It’s so hard to believe that Jase is already 7 months old! We met at the studio the day he turned 7 months old and I just can’t get over how happy this little guy is. I had seen him a few times since his newborn session, but hadn’t really seen him fully sitting up, smiling & being a complete ham! It was wonderful seeing his sweet mommy & daddy too. Due to the rainy days we have seen most weekends, we had actually made plans to have his session at the studio. And wouldn’t you know it, it rained the day of his session. So happy we had made plans in advance! Here is a tiny peek of this adorable little man’s session!
