As the children and grandchildren gathered around the table this Christmas, they felt extra grateful. Ray and Martha celebrated their 38th anniversary this year and are still recovering from an accident that could have cost them their life. When a freak accident pinned Ray between his smashed vehicle (with Martha inside) and the gas pump earlier this fall, the future looked uncertain. He was airlifted in critical condition and Martha had several broken ribs. With severe facial injuries, 11 broken ribs, and other injuries, Ray was sent home after only four days in the hospital. After hearing all the details and the extent of the accident, I realized more fully the treasure this family was gifted this Christmas.

Upon meeting the family, you can’t help but notice the love and joyful sibling rivalry. As the brothers finished their photos, they were surprised with snowballs from two sneaky sisters. This of course resulted in a full blown snowball fight and girls making a mad dash for the house! 😉 Even with a whirling snowstorm and freezing temperatures, I haven’t met many people more excited and enthusiastic for their session. Those are my absolute favorite clients and Ray & Martha’s family was a true joy and pleasure to work with.

Ray, Martha, and family, thank you for allowing us to share this special day with you and for the reminder of how precious the gift of life truly is. Happy Holidays!
