Utah Photographer {The Coleman Family}

If you would like to feel grateful, and let your heart grow few sizes bigger...meet the Coleman family.  This family is simply inspiring.  I couldn't edit their session with out crying.  Not out of sadness, but out love.  Love over the connection this amazing family has for each other.   Love that I know God has for them.  Love that I had for those sweet children after only laying eyes on them.  Love that I had for these parents, knowing what a struggle everyday must be.  Not only physically, but emotionally.  And gratitude.  Lots and lots of gratitude.  It really puts life into perspective when you meet such a solid family, who seem to be weathering the storms of life with calmness in their hearts.  

At six weeks old Jonas was diagnosed with a genetic disorder called SMA (spinal muscular atrophy). SMA Type I is a terminal genetic disease that results in loss of nerves in the spinal cord and weakness of the muscles connected with those nerves.  He's now almost 3.  They just had their 2nd baby, little Maggie.  They had a very small chance that she would have SMA, however Maggie was also born with this disease.  Because of the weighing costs that come from taking care of 2 children with SMA friends and family have put together a carnival to raise money for the Colemans.

What an amazing couple, and what darling children. I am just drawn to that gorgeous Mom's smile. Her entire face just glows. I especially love the one's where she is looking at her children. So precious and full of unconditional love. Ahhh...what beautiful moments.

And you are right - Jonas does have the most incredible blue eyes. Sweet boy.

About This Blog

Hi! I'm Jen, and I own Fauset Photography. I'm a Salt Lake City Utah family, newborn, child and senior photographer. I love photographing interaction between families. My style is a bit candid, along with a traditional twist. I love capturing children as they really are, following them with my camera and just getting who they are is my favorite. Urban family photography here in Salt Lake is one of my favorites!!
I've been photographing weddings for 6 years, I love it so much! Fauset Photography is based in Salt Lake City, Utah- but I travel to Arizona often for faithful clients and weddings. I've also shot weddings in Park City Utah, Denver Colorado, Las Vegas Nevada, Flagstaff and Sedona Arizona, and San Diego California. Thanks for visiting my blog and don't forget to visit my website!
