Family portraits at the beach

We’ve been having such pleasant beach weather recently. The S family is adorable and full of energy. And they were real troupers when the sand gnats came out! S family, enjoy your sneak peek!

First we got some sun flare with little A in my new blue chair:

And the three sisters together:

This is such classic sibling affection, so I thought it deserved a vintage look:

And, of course, the whole family (have to love a beach sunset!):

Beach Maternity

I love the beach, and it’s so serene for a maternity session. Right at sunset, the colors on the beach transform to soft pastels, which was perfect for this beautiful mother-to-be. M is having twins, which is so exciting for her! M, enjoy your sneak peek!

Jenn - November 13, 2008 - 11:52 pm

WOW, you can see she’s glowing…that last picture is beautiful…what a moment!

Just beautiful! I love the silhouette of the beach! Great job and Lighting! ++L

Maternity Session

I did a maternity session at a park. J is two weeks away from birth and absolutely lovely! She and her husband were so easy to photograph and up for trying all of my ideas. 🙂 And to the happy couple, enjoy your sneak peek!

First, my favorite from the session (a little sunflare and rainbow for the baby boy!):

Then some fun with pregnancy books:

And you have to record the ice cream cravings…

AH! Your sunflare shot kicks my sunflare shot out of the contest! A rainbow!!!! How the heck did you capture that?!

Wishing Well Photography - October 29, 2008 - 4:15 pm

Thanks, Bex. I love your sunflare, too!! I wasn’t using a lens hood to maximize the sunflare, and I must have been at just the right angle for rainbows! Usually I get golden circles.

Laura Brett - October 29, 2008 - 6:44 pm

Beautiful maternity session. I love the sun flare, great composition and color! ++L

Christine Romano - October 29, 2008 - 8:29 pm

Oh these are fantastic! The Sunflare / Rainbow is amazing…I’ve NEVER seen a Rainbow like that in a photograph, how unique and beautiful!++

Jill Rains - October 31, 2008 - 6:00 am

These maternity photos are so beautiful! The sunflare is awesome, but I really like the moment you captured of them standing by the tree. They’re going to look back on these and have such wonderful memories captured! Great job, Katherine!

Baby Books

I have a number of maternity and newborn shoots on the horizon. I’m excited to offer these beautiful baby books, Sugar & Spice and Snips & Snails. I’m showing examples of some of the pages for the books. The baby books have 20 total pages.


Freddie Garcia - July 7, 2009 - 4:46 am

This is lovely? Are you going to publish it or it’s just something for the friends and family?

Wishing Well Photography - July 8, 2009 - 10:27 am

Thanks for your comment! The baby book template is not for sale. This is one of the designs I offer for baby books for my clients using their session images. 🙂

Fall family shoot

I photographed this lovely family at their home. A and her brother N were so cute, and A loved twirling around in the petticoat. The vintage cap looked adorable on N for those brief moments he allowed it on his head! H family: Enjoy your sneak peek!

Hayley - October 21, 2008 - 8:45 am

Love their smiles!!! Great captures!!! Color and clairty look good!!!

Beautiful Family Session, the lighting is great! –L

Bex - October 21, 2008 - 9:13 am

Their outfits are so precious! I want clients that dress like that on their own! How wonderful! You did a great job with the post processing in these, really!

Annie Pennington - October 21, 2008 - 9:17 am
