In the early days of family portraiture, subjects rarely smiled because photographers had yet to rely on puppets, funny faces, and relentless demands for the long "e" sound. Dutifully tauten cheeks during a picture-snapping stint with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a one-hour on-location portrait session and an 11”x14” print from Oak Tree Photography (a $295 value). On-location portraits are available in Tulsa and the Rogers Country area.
Seasoned shutterbug Tom Launius helms Oak Tree Photography, inviting individuals and families to pose amid lush landscapes for retina-regaling portrait sessions. After hashing out desired tone and location during a pre-photo-shoot consultation, picture-ready clients convene at their chosen destination for a focused hour with Launius and his lens. Pleasantly emote or playfully reenact famous remote-control battles with up to five family members, friends, or posable puppies. Sometime after the session, Launius will meet with patrons at their home so they can peruse the images and cull the most flattering one for an 11”x14” print. Groupon purchasers also receive a 15% discount on additional prints in case they wish to furnish in-laws with their very own copies or send out multiple headshots for Family Feud: The Movie auditions.
