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!

Have you ever wondered if you can freeze moments in time? Yes you can!

Family and Newborn Photo Sessions are where the ordinary becomes MAGIC to be remembered!

It's a relaxed photo session that highlights your family's love and joy! It's where you as parents get to sit back and soak in your family. Children are full of wonder and awe...the blanket fort becomes a castle to explore, a bear hunt happens from being chased by mama. Those tiny toes and fingers of a newborn are a map of new wonder as you get to know your little one.

Your children view the world with a magic lens. Photo sessions with me are about capturing that magical joy and wonder. We skip the stiff posing and only looking at a camera and lean into laughing, snuggling and taking a moment to breathe in your precious family.

Soak in the Moments. I'll be your Memory Catcher

FAQS for OKC Family and Newborn Photography

What Is An In-Home Photo Session?

While I do 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. I also offer high quality albums, photo books & prints to make it easy for you.

When Should I Book a Family Photo Session or my Newborn Photo Session?

There's multiple reasons why scheduling a few months or weeks in advance is best to make sure you get the best spot but reach out and see what my availability is.

For Newborn Photos, reach out mid way through your pregnancy! I take a limited amount of newborns each month and I would love to make sure I can serve you! I also offer maternity & newborn session packages. And all newborn clients get a special grow with me 1st year package offering.

Do I Get Digital Images from My Photo Session?

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.

What areas do you service as an Oklahoma City newborn photographer?

As a family and newborn photographer I service the metro Oklahoma City area which includes the areas of Edmond, Yukon, Midwest City, OKC, Moore, Norman, etc. I do travel further for an extra fee.

Can my photos be kept private?

Yes! I love getting to share my clients photos but totally understand and respect wishes for photos to not be public. You may choose to have them not shared at all or to choose which ones I can share. And if you also want photos that don't show your children's faces that you want to share I will be happy to make sure that happens!
