I've had the privilege of knowing Randall for over ten years. He is such a nice guy and cares so much for his friends and family. He is the type of guy that will do anything for you and has such a big heart. When he started dating Amanda, it was very clear how happy she made him. He would light up every time he would talk about her. It was really sweet to see. Once I met her, I knew why he adored her so much. Amanda is a doll, and I instantly felt like I had been a friend of hers for years. They are such a charming couple and will make the most amazing parents!
I was so excited when I heard the news that Amanda and Randall were expecting their first child. I had the unique privilege of photographing their Gender Reveal in May. They gathered with their family and close friends to announce what they were going to have. To be honest, I had to fight back the tears as they announced, "It's A BOY!” I knew how excited Amanda and Randall were to be pregnant, and finding out that it's going to be a "Little R", I was overwhelmed with happiness for them. It was such a cool experience to be apart of.
These two knocked it out of the park the evening of their maternity session. It was a little warm, so ending their session in the fountains at Jordan Valley Park was perfect. I loved walking around the park with them and talking about Baby Ryder. They love him so much already. Ryder is so blessed to have such a wonderful Mom and Dad. To see the love that Amanda and Randall share is incredible. Ryder will be the perfect addition to make them a precious family of three.
As we anxiously await the arrival of Ryder, here are just a few of my favorite images from Amanda and Randall's Summer Maternity Session. Enjoy and Happy Thursday!
