Is This The Best Way To Stop People Asking When You're Going To Have A Baby?

People just love to ask deeply personal (and annoying) questions, don’t they?

When you’re a kid, everyone wants to know what you’re going to be when you’re older (mostly so they can laugh at you – apparently fairy isn’t actually a job).

When you’re in a serious relationship, everyone wants to know when you’ll be tying the knot.

If you tie that knot, people will start inquiring about when you’re planning to start a family.

This will probably start on your wedding day (the inquiries, not the starting a family).

And it won’t stop until you push out a baby. And even then, you won’t get any rest.

People will immediately be on at you about when you’re going to have another.

Seriously, people, lay the hell off.

It’s annoying. Obviously. Like, really annoying. Nobody needs daily questions about their five year plan. Most people don’t even have a five year plan (or that’s what I tell myself, anyway).

Newborn Photo shoot – Without The Newborn?

One couple, Abby and Matt, came up with the perfect way to silence the endless questions. The couple were on their way to collect their new puppy with their friend, Australian photographer Elisha Minnette, when they came up with a plan.

After discussing how annoying it was to be endlessly asked when they would be having a baby, the trio decided to hold a newborn photography shoot to end all newborn shoots. With their puppy, of course.

To appease the grandparents, the couple took a beautiful selection of newborn style photographs, all with the help of their beautiful new puppy. Professional photographer, Elisha Minette, took the images and they capture the pride and love all new parents feel. For their dog.

The collection features that must-have shot of the new family snuggled up on a bed, with the parents lovingly gazing down at their (surprisingly hairy) new addition to the family.
