Beth Jansen Bio

Beth Jansen is Oklahoma City’s premier children’s portrait photographer specializing in natural light, candid portraiture of newborns, babies, children and families.

Beth has had a passion for the arts since she was a little girl. A music lover and an art collector, she has always adored photography. Once she had her two children her passion for photography became a personal quest to become proficient with a camera. It all started when a friend gave her his old SLR film camera. A few years later and several hundred experimental shoots, Beth Jansen Photography was born. While mostly self-taught, Beth owes much of her knowledge to other amazing photographers who have been friends and mentors along the way. Beth uses only available light, shoots on-location, and 90% of her work is with kids. She has a non-traditional approach to photography and the art of finishing a photo.

“My sole purpose is for my images to say, ‘WOW’. I want images that make you feel! I love a life of color coupled with whimsical modernism and work hard to show that off in my photography.”
