Hi There!

I’m Alisha Smith Watkins of AMSW Photography. I officially began this business 10 years ago as a “momarazzi” when I took photo after photo of my then-newborn son. My love of editing in Photoshop grew and I developed my own style. Soon friends were paying to take their family photos. My business grew with steady clients. However, life needed change and we decided to move from California to Kentucky. My business shifted focus and I decided to let my love of nature photography grow (Kentucky has actual seasons!)

This began the creation of my nature photography shop,  Nature Photo Gift Pro by AMSW Photography. I saw the need for ready-to-hang artwork in quality frames, and added fine art prints, canvas gallery wraps, and wood prints to the store.

As a photographer, sometimes it feels like doing one aspect of the job is not enough. I still love shooting children and families (and their pets) in lovely, outdoor light. A family shoot with the sun casting a perfect glow is everything to me. I open my photos in Photoshop to see what I caught, and every.single.time I am excited to do my job.

Our styles range from light and airy to deep and moody. Sometimes the edit that is chosen simply depends on the atmosphere of the photo. AMSW Photography is versatile and can provide both looks; please specify the look you are going for during the consultation. For examples of the style we offer, please view our Portfolio page.

After working for a few commercial projects here in Paducah, KY, I am excited to help others fulfill their business needs with photos that represent them and their business in their best light.

If you’d like to collaborate with me on corporate artwork for your lobby, photos of your shop, family photos, company head shots, or just a little something special for your living room, please do not hesitate to contact me. I’d love to work with you! Please contact me for a quote or simply to ask a question.

I look forward to meeting you and bringing a little smile to your world through my work.
