Welcome to the world Laina Rae Ditmire. She was born strong and healthy on June 29th, 2021, at 8:29pm weighing 6 lbs. 11 oz. and measuring 19 inches to an excited momma, Dominique, and proud dad, Brandon. They went in to be induced at the Northwest Health Hospital in LaPorte, Indiana, the evening before, but due to some unexpected complications they decided to go forward with an emergency c-section later the next day. Everything went as planned after that and Laina Rae was happy and healthy. Everyone is so grateful to have this surprise girl in the world now.
Dominique and Brandon chose not to find out the gender of their baby before her birth. The coming of a child is always an exciting moment, but these two were especially thrilled to be finding out whether it was a boy or a girl. Dominique told me later at the hospital the story of how Brandon was able to announce that it was a girl as they lifted her into view. Beautiful Laina Rae made her entrance.
I had the wonderful opportunity to take maternity photos for this growing family at the Tippecanoe River State Park in Winamac, Indiana earlier in the summer. Dominique & Brandon were so fun to hang out with, we chatted a lot, and Dom was even willing to get in the river for some amazing “wild child” photos. I am already so grateful to be able to call these two friends and can’t wait to smother their little one in love as she continues to grow!!

Growing families are something that we love to document. We find that it is super important to capture these milestones of growth in all families. Your important milestones should be captured with photos and video! If you are wanting to commemorate your family’s milestones, then I’d love to chat with you about how we can capture any special day with beautiful photos and videos! No matter what phase of life your family is currently in, your family will only experience this special time once. Whether your family is growing with one on the way, or your oldest is a graduating high school and needs beautiful senior portraits, we can ensure you that we will capture the memories of your big day not matter what it is. The videos and photos that we create have always been as a means to hold a moment in time–something you can review for years and years to come.
