Sound familiar? 

You are playing with your kids and you realize that this is the moment you want captured. Their laughter. The smiles. The way they cuddle up close. Their little hand in yours. Your love for them. 

You feel the kicks in your belly of this new life coming soon…you see their face and know you have to have a record to remember these days…their tiny lips, the way they fit in your arm.

You’re tired of studio smiles and perfection and want photos that show who you are and what your family means.

…I am here to offer you lifestyle photography sessions that are relaxed, low stress and full of laughter, snuggles and love. Photo sessions that celebrate the ordinary and beautiful in between moments.

I help with it all…from when and where to do your session, to what to wear…a lot less stressful and whole lot more fun!

What you don’t have to do – wear awkward clothes, plastered smile on your face for forever or put your baby on a bean bag.

A photo session with me keeps your baby in your arms, lots of snuggles and kisses and a good dose of dancing and running thrown in. (oh and there’s always times for snacks. 🙂 )

If you are looking for a OKC / Norman family and newborn photographer that will turn your family joy and chaos into beloved heirloom treasures then let’s talk. Time is flying and babies don’t keep. I believe your story matters.

I love a good story…

I’m Charis – a lifestyle family and newborn photographer based out of Norman, Ok, serving the Metro OKC and Central Oklahoma area. I’m a mama to 2, wife to an entruperneur, follower of Jesus and lover of books and coffee. (And by lover of books I mean it…like 5+ bookshelves full)

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 delivering quality images you’ll cherish forever.

Your family matters. Your story matters. 

I am passionate about photos that embrace the little details, the in-between, the chaos, the perfectly imperfect.

Love, emotion, beauty – whether in the extra special or the ordinary = it all matters. 

Your ordinary tells a magical story. 

I just received our gallery full of gorgeous photos and I am in love. Charis did a wonderful job of capturing candid photos of our family showing the fun we have together. She made the evening relaxing and my 3 year old exclaimed that “taking pictures is fun!” Score! These are photos that I will treasure forever.

“Charis stayed flexible and relaxed during our session, despite working with two wiggly preschoolers and a hungry newborn. Thank you, Charis! Our photos are special to us.”
