These 3 might look familiar--they are great friends (and, full disclosure, Sarah is an unpaid member of the Emily Alt Photography team) and I have photographed them on numerous occasions before--for their wedding, for a couples session, and, of course, just as members of our group of friends. But it was an amazing honor when they asked if I would take a few shots of them making pancakes and enjoying a Saturday morning together for their most recent exciting news....they are beginning the process of adopting a baby! That's right, Sarah and Danny have made the huge and important decision to grow their family through adoption and they are in the process of creating their adoption book and profile for potential birth mothers to peruse.
They wanted some photographs of them spending time together, enjoying cooking and just relaxing as a couple in their house. We spent some time telling jokes and making pancakes and then went outside (though briefly, it's freezing here in Chicago!) to snap a few more pictures walking Elphie, their adorable Goldendoodle. I know that Danny and Sarah are going to be absolutely amazing parents and I cannot wait to see this exciting and awesome change in their lives--thank you so much, Danny and Sarah, for asking me to capture this fabulous event!
