A pregnant mom who beamed and smiled through her maternity photo shoot is back in front of the camera — and this time, she brought the family.
Lilica, that confident mom-to-be, has since given birth to a litter of five puppies, and there’s no better way to welcome them to this world than by taking more pics.
Brazilian photographer Ana Paula Grillo snapped some adorable shots of Lilica and her babies, and the pups are just as photogenic as their mother. “That proud mama!” Grillo captioned one picture, perfectly punctuating the sentence with a heart emoji.
Grillo — who lives beside Lilica’s owners — posted the pictures on Facebook, and we dare you not to “Awww” your way through the entire set. Although the five of them pretty much snoozed through the dozen or so camera clicks, Lilica couldn’t look happier.
The puppies have already been adopted by some of Lilica’s human relatives and friends, Grillo told Petcha.com, and, man, we hope they keep those pictures coming.
