Welcome to
wish photography

I am thrilled that you have found your way here, and I cannot wait to capture your families love story.

Hi there

I’m Katherine,

Young at heart, a perfectionist, a creative and lover of light and love.

I have been photographing babies and families for more than 10 years. Before this, I was a Registered Nurse. The switch to photography came easy, filling my life with depth and clarity.

In my world, family is everything. With four children at home, my life is a whirlwind of chaos. My work and my studio are my calm and happy place.

It was my own journey through motherhood that ignited my passion for photography. Motherhood changed everything for me. It opened my eyes to the beauty in everyday moments, and I wanted to hold onto them forever.

One of my deepest passions is helping mothers see their own beauty and importance. I believe it’s crucial for mothers to exist in photographs, to see themselves as their children see them—strong, beautiful, and full of love.

It’s my passion to give everyone photographs they resonate with and an experience they will always remember.

I want to empower you and honour the mark you are leaving on the world – and I can’t wait to be a part of your family’s love story.

 

Katherine-Stannard-Wish-Photography

When I’m not in the studio, you’ll most likely find me shopping, cheering on my kids at their sporting games, relaxing at a café, or enjoying the sunshine. But let’s be real—most of my time is spent in the kitchen, preparing lunch boxes, cooking, and cleaning.

My family and I are absolutely smitten with our puppy, Tex, a miniature dachshund who probably owns us more than we own him. Our love for the Adelaide Crows inspired Tex’s name, and you’ll often find us at the game, even if it’s not in Adelaide. Yep, we’re groupies!

I’m an avid sun-chaser, always planning the next holiday adventure to escape the cold winters and create new memories. Although my husband loves camping, I’m definitely more of a glamper!

My mum is my biggest fan, and you’ll always notice she will be the first to comment on your posts!

Photography Options

Studio Newborn Sessions

Usually captured in the first 12 days of baby's birth

Newborn sessions are ideally captured in the first 6-12 days of your babies arrival, when baby is still very sleepy and easily curled into poses that replicate being inside the womb.

Parents and older children, you are a big part of this day too. We love capturing the love and bond between you and your little one.

Sessions are never rushed and allow plenty of time for feeding and settling your new baby. Please allow 3 hours on the day of your session. 

Our brand new studio (located on Port Rd, Cheltenham) is filled with high quality and clean props that you will be able to incorporate into your photography session, so apart from your baby, there’s nothing you need to bring on the day!
