Meet Kat - WaterMARK's newest photographer!

I'm Kat Short and I love taking photographs. Heather and I met by chance, but are perfect for each other. I studied photography for years at Georgia College and the Atlanta School of Photography, and I have a portrait business of my own. Spending time with families brings me so much joy. I love working with seniors as well, and documenting their specific personalities and stories. I love the constant learning and beauty that photography has brought to my life, and I can't wait to continue my professional journey in Athens with WaterMARK.

Reach out to me at [email protected] to discuss your portrait needs. I am happy to answer any questions you have.



Sessions with Kat:

It's simple. Watermark Photography captures natural, high-quality images as they happen. We specialize in people - families, babies, expecting mothers, seniors, athletes - and we choose to photograph them in all their beautiful and unique glory. The focus is you, your sweet baby, graduate and precious family.

Each session is a little different, but all are designed to capture memories you will treasure forever. Our goal is to provide affordable and exceptional portraits for each of our clients. We will meet with you afterwards to preview you session and discuss your print and digital needs. These price lists are available when you purchase your session.
