Couple takes adorable newborn photos…with their puppy

Every couple deals with awkward questions from the in-laws about when they’ll finally get a grandkid. For Matt and Abby Kay, humor was the best response.

In what appears to be a growing trend of sticking societal expectations to the man with unconventional photo shoots, the Australian couple recently decided to pose for a series of endearing newborn photos…with their fluffy puppy filling in as the “baby.”

According to Buzzfeed, Matt, Abby and their golden retriever-poodle mix, Humphry, collaborated with photographer Elisha Minnette to stage the shoot.

Minnette said that while the photos were meant to poke fun at typical newborn shoots, the mood was “light-hearted.”

“We did this shoot just for a little bit of humor between ourselves, as well as for those that share the same sense of humor as us,” Minnette told Buzzfeed.

The photos, which Minnette posted to her Facebook page, have been shared thousands of times.
