Meet Lawrence, Hollie, Quinn and Raelynn. Hollie is a birth junkie just like meeeee! Wahoo! Someone who gets my level of crazy! Haha! 😉
I met Hollie at the very first Dallas Birth Network meeting I attended. I had just had my daughter a few months earlier and my experience left me craving more from the birth world. It was about this time that I decided to pursue birth photography, so when I was invited to attend a birth network meeting, I jumped on the opportunity. Hollie sat next to me. She mentioned that she had her own business as a certified doula and childbirth educator. I was impressed and inspired. I knew what I wanted to do, but being so new to the birth world, I didn’t know how to start. Hollie was brand spankin’ new to the area and had already launched her business. She didn’t let being new hold her back, and I shouldn’t either. Everybody’s gotta start somewhere! So, this is my start.
Since then, Hollie and I have become friends. Let me tell you, this is one cool chick. She is very sweet and smart, and she is really good at what she does. Lawrence is quite impressive too. He is currently in chiropractic school. These two make a great duo and then, of course, you add two pretty stinkin’ cute kids and they are the whole package! LOL! It was a lot of fun photographing them. Quinn was completely adorable and always ready for the camera. His eyes and smile just make you light up! Raelynn was much more reserved. She couldn’t quite figure me out. But, I still want to eat her up because even though she gave out smiles sparingly, she was ridiculously cute. Well, without further ado, here are their family portraits.
And, for anyone interested in doula services and/or a natural childbirth course, check out Hollie’s website at http://www.sweetserenitybirth.com/ or you can find her on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sweet-Serenity-Birth-Services-Hollie-Hauptly-Doula-and-BBCI/141314659269361. I highly recommend a birthing class especially if you are interested in a natural birth. Also, doulas are worth their weight in gold especially if they help prevent unnecessary interventions.
And, of course, if anyone is interested in birth photography by yours truly, you can find me on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pushphotos or email me at pushphotography at outlook dot com. I am currently offering discounted rates for portfolio building. Please contact me for more details.
