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

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.

The happy family isn’t the first to stage a professional photo shoot for a satirical cause – in August, a Missouri teenager staged a senior photo shoot to remember at her local Taco Bell. Earlier in the summer, a 28-year-old San Francisco man posed for beautiful engagement photos with the love of his life – a burrito.
