Meet the Welton Family
The Welton family was recently approached by Sandie with Viera Living Magazine about being their cover family.
We have never had a professional photograph taken of our current family of four! The last family portrait we had taken was before Scarlett was born.”Melissa Welton
The couple are the owners of the Maybeck Animal Hospital in West Melbourne. Roger is a Veterinarian and Melissa is a Certified Veterinary Technician. Roger is also a partner in another practice, the Grant Animal Clinic.
They have two beautiful and active children: Austin, who is eleven, and Scarlett, who is eight. They both play lacrosse, which Roger volunteers as the President for the local club and nonprofit, Space Coast Elite Lacrosse.
Roger and Austin have a love of the water and are certified in Scuba Diving as well as enjoy surfing. As a family they like spending time on their Grady White boat, fishing, exploring soil islands, and just being together.
Melissa and Scarlett spend a majority of their time with their horses. They currently have a ten year old large Quarter Horse Pony named Newton. They also lease and plan to buy a beautiful five year old American Warmblood mare named Stratus. Both Melissa and Scarlett show on the local level in the Hunter/Jumper shows in the Hunter and Equitation divisions. They spend time together at the barn riding, taking lessons, and generally caring for their horse and pony.
“Ray was amazing. He took great photographs. He was comfortable and fun to work with and did a great job! We are not models, so he had to tell us what to do, and he did a fantastic job of getting some great shots!”Melissa Welton
We absolutely LOVE our portraits. Now that they are hanging in our house, it really made them come to life and put a very personal touch on our decor. Ray helped us pick the perfect frames for each of them and I couldn’t be happier with the final portraits!Melissa Walton
I would not hesitate to recommend Ray to anyone looking for a family or other portraits. The fact that he is also full service, from taking the photos, to editing them, to printing and framing them without having to go to multiple places was beyond convenient. He even came to our house and hung the photos for us! When I wasn’t sure about where to put a few of them, I asked for his opinion, and it was spot on. Full service, amazing photos and easy process he was there each step of the way and kept us updated. Service was above and beyond in my opinion and definitely would recommend everything about the processMelissa Welton
