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 1/2 years old & 1 1/2 years 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 sons) and may have a small addiction to greek yogurt.

    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.

Things are starting to heat up outside, so I decided to open up ONE afternoon of mini-sessions at the beautiful indoor studio! Booking opened up to newsletter recipients on Friday and several of the spots are already gone. These are first come, first serve & will likely sell out in a day or two!

So what is the mini-session exactly? It’s a quick, 20 minute session with up to 6 people. It’s great for just about anything except newborn sessions.:)These will be held on Sunday, August 24th in the afternoon. Here are all of the details you need to know!

If you are interested in booking, please use the contact tab at the top or give me a call at 972-200-3535! I’d love to see you there. This will be the LAST set of indoor mini-sessions this year. Mini-sessions won’t be offered again until the fall and all 2014 fall mini-sessions will be at outdoor locations. If you’ve been wanting to have a session here, don’t miss out!

Oh, sweet Hudson. He makes my heart so happy. This is my littlest love who is turning 2 years old today. It is crazy how fast time is flying by and I’m trying so hard to live in each & every moment since they are truly fleeting. Hudson is one of the reasons I get out of bed every day (quite literally). Every morning, he quietly walks in and greets me with the biggest bear hug and says “good night nights!”. He’s already sleeping in a toddler bed – much in part to his *ahem* daring little personality. He has the cutest locks of curly hair which I have no clue where he got them. He has the biggest personality which I do have a slight clue where he got that.;)He loves giving hugs, “misses” (kisses), and absolutely adores his big brother, Luke. His tantrums are some of the most epic tantrums I’ve ever seen, but just as quickly as they appear they fizzle away and he is giggling like a maniac.

To my sweet little love, keep on growing & loving & being you. Because you….are perfect. And I love you – big time. Happy 2nd Birthday, Hudson!

Earlier this spring, I had the pleasure of working with one of my favorite colleagues, Taylor of Barefeet Photography & Design. This beautiful wedding was held at Perkins Chapel at SMU. The reception followed the ceremony and took place at the Las Colinas Country Club. Both of these are such beautiful venues! Everything flowed perfectly together and it made for a gorgeous day. Here are a few of my favorites!

Over this past weekend, we celebrated my littlest one’s 2nd birthday with a Mickey Mouse party! His birthday is in just a couple of days, but I wanted to go ahead and share all of the fun we had at his party. After I spent hours on Mickey decorations for Luke’s 2nd birthday three years ago, I decided to hold on to those decorations for future use. I am *so* glad I did! I was able to add more to the party & it turned out fantastic! Most of the items that you’ll see were completely handmade by me with lots of help from my mom. I’ll be sharing more photos of Hudson’s actual two year session on his birthday, so today is focused solely on the party.:) Here’s a little peek into Hudson’s fantastic 2 year Mickey Mouse party!

And be sure to scroll to the end to see a fun new feature that can be added on to events & weddings!;)

No party is complete without goodie bags! These were quite easy to make & have the perfect little Mickey touch.

Also shown are the puzzles I made using a Mickey head cookie cutter, blank puzzles & sharpies.

If you’ve watched Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, you’ll know all about red gooey fish (Swedish fish in this case). The kids (and adults) loved them.

Mickey shaped everything! From fruit to desserts, anything that could be cut into a Mickey head was done that way.:)

The kids loved Pluto’s Pop-sicles (aka sno cones). Such a fun addition to the party!

Last week, I had the pleasure of meeting Hussan & Shu and their sweet little baby boy, Haris. Haris is almost 4 months old and this was their first photo session with him.:) Hussan’s parents were also there, so we were able to get some photos of Haris with his grandparents! Their session was held in the indoor studio in McKinney. They were all so kind & wonderful to work with. Haris has beautiful big brown eyes and the sweetest little smile. I loved getting to spend time with them! Here is a little peek into their family & 3 month session.

This past spring, I was contacted by Fox’s mommy about doing his one year session. They are from out of state and were planning to come here to visit family. It completely blew me away that they chose to book with me since they are from so far away!:)We did Fox’s session at the indoor studio and he did so good! He is such a little cutie and immediately warmed up to me. He is a fast little guy and kept me on my toes. I love his sweet smiles and the adorable stuffed fox they brought along for the session. Here’s a tiny little sneak peek into his one year session!
