I believe in celebrating the everyday magic that is life. Those quiet, peaceful moments where you get to wrap your arms around your love after a long day. The warm embrace of your child’s hand in yours. The feeling of pure joy and celebration as you revel in the fact that you are stepping into a new season. 

I offer engagements, maternity, couples, anniversary, senior and family portrait sessions in Louisville, Lexington and beyond. I cannot wait to celebrate your life and give you the ability to share your story for years to come.

As a mama, I’m so thankful to have these high-quality photos to remember this crazy but fun life stage we are in. I highly recommend Amanda Karis Photography!


Amanda is kind, genuine, easy-going and made us feel comfortable right from the start. 

The moments she captured between my husband and I will be cherished forever! The beauty in what we got in our final gallery of photos was amazing. I have never had professional photos of our family like this! I have children ranging from age 17 down to 10 months old and they all did amazing with her guidance, her tone of voice and friendly demeanor! I can't say enough! My family agrees that she was the best and they have come across their fair share of family photographers!


There is no way you will leave without loving your pictures!

Amanda was so easy to work with! She communicated with us really well. She made us feel comfortable during the shoot and it was so easy and fun. Can't wait to use her for our next family photoshoot or event!


She really cares about her clients and it shows.

We have done countless sessions with her and she always captures the most amazing photos. We cherish them so much. She always makes us feel comfortable throughout the entire session which can be hard when you are not used to being in front of the camera! I am not sure how she captures us so beautifully, but we will not go to anyone else for pictures after being spoiled by her. Amanda is truly a rockstar and we are so thankful to have found her!


Amanda is absolutely amazing at what she does.
