For far too long, dog mamas have been denied the right to produce their own maternity shoots, on the flimsy conceptual ground that they "don't understand what they are."
That time is slowly ending, one doggie photo shoot at a time.
Elsa Veria-Means, known on Twitter as @elsa_means, recently decided to pull out all the stops for a maternity shoot for her 8-week pregnant pup. Sure, the dog technically isn't a human and it doesn't have a social media audience it needs to impress. And it likely doesn't understand what maternity, cameras, or photography photos are.
Who cares!? The concept is great and the doggo is adorable and sometimes we just need nice things.
Of course, Twitter was enthralled. Doggo photo shoots is what Twitter dreams are made of.
To be fair, there's a long history of pets getting their own maternity shoots. But so far, none of them have had a filter and a flower crown like this. This dog was made to model shorty denim shorts at Madewell. She's a rosemary-scented candle, made into a dog. She's perfect.
We're just so proud.
