Summer Family Photos | Tulsa, OK | Chisholm Park

The Crawford family is one of my favorites.  I have been photographing this family since sweet Charlie girl was a bump in her Mamas tummy.  It has been a joy to watch their family grow each year.  I’m so glad we got in family photos during the youngest nine month baby session.  It is a fun and exhausting stage of parenthood.  There are so many hugs, laughs, and silly faces that need to be remembered!

August is one of the best months for family photos.  Two options one is early morning when everyone is well rested before the sun warms up the day.  The other option is a sunset session when the sun is working it’s way down for the evening and the heat is cooling off.  Most families tend to wait until November but that is really the worst month in my opinion.  November is moody with it’s weather.  Daylight savings comes around and it gets dark before parents get home from work. Add in a major vacation holiday and there really isn’t very many options.

August is fun and carefree.  In August you get fun pictures like this.  Four young kids 5 and under and happy in the morning.

I love their personalities and how they each got to shine in front of the camera.

Sisters are built in best friends.  Don’t you just love seeing them laughing together.  I wish I had pictures like this with my sis from years ago!  

How many of you have great pictures just you and your parents?  Especially if you were a middle child!  One of my favorite things to come out of this session were these pictures of each child with their parents.  They won’t hang up over the mantle.  But they will be life long treasures for each of those children.  Plus when they get married one day it will make a great picture for the wedding video.  

Life is grand.  Family is Fun.  Email me to get your family photos scheduled for this fall!  JulieDawkinsPhotography@gmail.com
