This Couple Did A Newborn Photoshoot With Their Dog To Silence Questions About Babies

Published 9 years ago

“When are you going to have a kid?” is a question childless couples in their 20s hear all too often. Abby Lee and Matt Kay from Australia got tired of it. So when they added the plus one to their family, it’s was a groodle (that’s Aussie for a poodle and golden retriever cross) named Humphry, and they made a whole baby photography session for him. All of the old stand-bys were dusted off for the shoot: walking the doggie by paws, bundling him up, posing in bed – the works!

The couple did the shoot with the help of Elisha Minette, a professional photographer Central Coast, New South Wales, Australia. She was the one who sprung the idea when the family was driving home from adoption. “We did this shoot just for a little bit of humour between ourselves, as well as for those that share the same sense of humour as us. Everything went so smoothly. The pup was enjoying every second of it,” Minette told Buzzfeed. “I think everyone will be seeing a lot more of Humphry in the future!”

Matt and Abby were tired of people asking about babies, so they decided to do a newborn photoshoot…with their dog!


Meet Humphry, their hairy groodle newborn!


The idea came on the way back home from the dog breeder


“Abby and I have the craziest sense of humour and we feed off of each other with ideas”


It’s meant as a “light-hearted” of usual newborn photoshoots that parents do


“People may say we have way to much time on our hands to do this photo shoot, but that’s not the case”


“We just prefer to be creative!”
