Your OKC Family and Newborn Photographer
I am passionate about Jesus, family, and celebrating the value of every human life!
Hey! I’m Charis – a lifestyle family and newborn photographer serving the OKC metro and the greater Central Oklahoma area. It’s my delight to capture people’s stories and I am honored to enter in to your family’s story. Whether you are expecting your first little one or already have a row of teenagers, I believe your photos tell your beautiful ordinary magical story. My passion is to give families a fun, relaxed session and deliver quality images you’ll cherish forever.
Your family matters. Your story matters.
Charis is the absolute best. If you’re looking for a family friendly photographer who knows how to make you look your best- she’s your girl. She knows how to wrangle children, make camera shy husbands feel comfortable, and she is a complete professional. She walks you through the process and makes it a totally painless experience. Hands down best family photo experience we have had!
Charis brings a warmth and light into our home every time we are in her presence. Her ease and loving energy makes the entire experience feel easy and natural. Her energy allows for an authentic experience that can be clearly seen and felt in the images she captures.
Charis did an amazing job at capturing our family’s personality through photography. She worked well with the younger ones at getting them to smile. It was a laid back, relaxing session. When we left, the children mentioned how much fun they had. We would highly recommend Charis Elisabeth Photography.
Charis was incredibly professional. She found out what we wanted ahead of time, arrived on time, and sent me so many beautiful taken and edited images. Her turn around time was excellent! 10/10 for this artist!

Common Questions Asked About Family Photos
What Is An In-Home Photo Session?
While I offer both outdoor and indoor family photo sessions, I specialize in the indoor, in-home family photos. An in-home session is a documentary style session in the comfort of your own home. These are ideal for newborn sessions or sessions with younger children. We'll focus on family interactions on the couch or a bed as well as capture some fun time with toys or your family's favorite activities.
How Much Does a Photo Session Cost?
You can view my session pricing details on my rates page here. My rates include a pre-session consult, styling guides, your session time, professionally edited photos, and access to your full resolution digital photos in an online gallery.
When Should I Book a Family Photo Session?
I always recommend trying to book a few months in advance of your desired session date, if at all possible. However, if you're needing last minute photos, be sure to reach out and see what my availability is.

Yes! All my session packages include full resolution digital files from your session. You will receive these in an online gallery and be able to download them for your own use. I will give you a print release document as well as provide recommendations for the best places to get your photos printed.
