Hello, and thanks for stopping by!
My name is Katherine and I am the proud owner, photographer and creative editor at Wish Photography.
I am obsessed with good coffee. I love a back yard barbecue. I could binge watch any reality TV show and eating chips when the kids go to bed are some of my favourite past times. But nothing beats a wintery Sunday afternoon, with a wood fire burning, wine in one hand and the children happily playing.
As a young child I was fascinated with babies. I was the one at the party, babysitting friends children. It was no surprise that I went on to have 4 of my own. I began my working career as a Registered Nurse, I always had the urge to make a difference in peoples lives. Taking up photography and photographing tiny humans soon became a whole lot more rewarding and so Wish Photography began.
My children are the reason I smile every day. From the moment each of them were born, they had distinct personalities and I became fasciated with capturing every little detail on film.
I love capturing all the little details of babies pouted lips, their tiny clenched fists and their first yawns. When I look at these photos I am instantly reminded of just how small they are. I can almost smell and feel the love, that overwhelming love we have when we hold our baby. Photographs are powerful in that they flood back memories of what we might forget if we don’t have these photos.
We all experience times with our children when we think we couldn’t love them anymore. That the age that they are at is simply the best and we want to freeze that moment in time. Well….I cannot freeze time…….but I can capture that time for you, so you can look back on photos of your family and be reminded by this fleeting time in your life.
As a creative person, I see the world differently to most. I see a rundown yard with over grown grass, the sun going down in the distance. You would see it for what it is, I see it as an opportunity to create a magical photograph. It is these photos that make my outdoor work unique and different to many others.
I love raw moments. I love real love. And I love documenting the imperfect, perfect moments between families.
I cannot wait to talk more with you and begin this exciting journey with you and your family!
