Family Photos in Paducah and Surrounding Areas

I’m so excited to help you capture this moment in your life!

I have 10+ years of photographing families, kids, and expecting mamas, so know that you can relax and leave it all to me.

  • I am a natural light photographer and am happy to travel from everything from the Land Between the Lakes to Downtown Paducah, so let us know where you’d like your session. Need to drive more than 75 miles from Paducah? Let’s go! Just cover my travel fee of a tank of gas.
  • AMSW Photography believes in digitals and prints so you have something tangible to put on the wall.
  • Our all-inclusive package is designed to bring you ease, so you don’t have to lift a finger. Choose a cute outfit, show up and smile- done. Have a digital gallery AND an in-person viewing (virtual or in your home) to really help you decide what goes on the wall and just how many prints you need. We even hang photos for you so it’s one less thing to worry about. 

Full Photo Session

Family/ Child/ Maternity


Session Details

Family, child, and maternity photos in Paducah, KY and surrounding areas. We are happy to come to you if you live farther away.

1-2 hour photo session at your favorite location. Time is relaxed, so you can relax. A few posed family photos for the wall, and then the rest is casual. We’ll focus on the love and bond you share with your family, and give you gorgeous photos that reflect that.

If the weather blows too much, I’m on hand with bobby pins and a comb. If you want to bring a second outfit, that’s fine with me.


* Online gallery of 50 edited images for you to choose from, and an in-person viewing session or Zoom call. 

–Why in person? Sometimes screens can alter the contrast in your images, and I can tell an image may not look right to you if I see your face! Then I can walk through the gallery with you. If we do a virtual call, test proofs can be mailed to you so you see exactly what the photo should look like. 

* Select 15 images to keep, and they will be provided to you in a digital download with printing rights.

* $100 to spend on prints. This is known as a Print Credit. The print credit may be used to purchase every product AMSW offers, including more digital images. You may also purchase prints ala carte in addition to using your credit.

* An online print and album store, full of the images from your gallery. Each product mockup is fitted with your photos, so you can visualize what the photo will look like framed and on the wall.

* $250 due at time of booking, with $250 due the day of photo shoot.

Prices do not include tax. With Kentucky 6% state tax, your total session fee is $530

Kentucky weather is iffy. The best thing is to wait and see. If it rains heavily or lighting threatens, we will reschedule or wait it out. If its a very light rain, I say go for it. A little wind in your hair is fun, and rain can be romantic. We can take photos under trees, or brave the elements.

I have years of being a licensed hairstylist, so I will always make sure you look amazing. I will fix wayward flyaways, and help unruly hair behave for a few photos. I assist you, style your photos with my client guide, and provide advice as needed. Your outfits set the tone, so we make styling a fun process!

I know your life. Mine too!! Hiring me as a professional photographer is a great choice, because I help you to let go of the crazy. Have you tried to DIY family photos? It’s hard. I provide a distraction for your kids. We let them be crazy, wild children, and capture fun photos of those happy faces. When they get some wiggles out, then we turn our attention to you, and maybe some posed photos. I let the children lead. You can breathe in and relax, and the result is happy family photos.

I generally prefer to keep it limited to no more than 8, but we can do up to 15 people. Extra charges may apply.

Sick, reschedule. Covid, absolute reschedule. Fussy kids? Well…no…maybe. I’m a big fan of environment change- when kids get to the location sometimes they perk up. I’ve had crying children dry their eyes and laugh with me. There is hope! You know your kids. If your child is having a very bad day, past recovery for photos, let me know and we’ll reschedule.

I feel that. Weight gain, bleh. Whatever is bugging you, know my goal is to flatter you. Outfits, posing, hair and makeup build that confidence and I will do my best to help you see your beauty. If you still don’t want to have your photo taken, that’s ok. Let’s make sure we photograph the children. Guess what? Holding a child in front of you magically slims you! And there’s always teeny Photoshop tweaks we can do. Give yourself grace. You are beautiful and your family thinks you are, too. 

There’s a few options! Bring the car infant seat along, and we’ll carry baby around. Also, I can wear baby in a baby carrier and take photos. Moms multitask! Photos of you lying on a blanket cuddled with your baby- so many options! Bring Grandma along to watch the baby, and we’ll get photos of her, too! Or, I can come to your home, and we can do an indoor session!

Not a problem! Email Alisha at and ask away! I want to help make your photo session amazing and an experience you happily remember.
