this may be one of the sweetest families i have ever gotten to work with.

they were so full of fun and joy… they made it so easy to capture all the love they have for one another.

i love this family, so it is pretty awesome that they keep asking me to capture their growing family.

it feels like we were just capturing brittany’s belly when she was pregnant with henry

(and then meeting him in the hospital and capturing him at home just a week later).

now he’s turning one and she has another precious boy on the way!

any time i get the privilege of hanging out with the futrells, i always walk away feeling encouraged and having a sore tummy from laughing so much.  they are the kind of people you are lucky to call friends.

i can’t wait to meet their third sweet baby boy in just a few more months.orange county family photographer futrell blog001 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog002 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog003 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog004 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog005 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog006 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog007 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog008 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog009 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog010 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog011 682x1024 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog012 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog013 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog014 682x1024 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog015 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog016 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog017 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog018 the futrell family :: henry is turning one! orange county family photographer futrell blog019 the futrell family :: henry is turning one!

this precious little guy is extra special…

his mommy was my son’s teacher last year, and we absolutely adore her.

if you can call a boy beautiful, sweet milo definitely is just that.

those eyelashes! those lips! those cheeks!

and now it’s already time to celebrate him turning one!

hudson is quite the charmer and has the best little expressions on his cute face.

i had the sweet privilege of meeting this little red-haired beauty in her home.

she was quite serious and not totally sure if she wanted to take pictures…
