At this point, maternity photo sessions are pretty par for the course — sometimes, it feels like your Facebook feed is fully of pregnant friends standing in forested areas, proudly holding their swollen bellies. But this is a maternity photoshoot like you’ve never seen before. The star of the shoot is Lilica, a four-year-old pinscher that recently had five adorable puppies. Photographed by Ana Paula Grillo, this majestic mama looks absolutely ecstatic to have her picture taken with her teeny-tiny brood. Check out the heart-achingly cute photos below.
