If you are active on social media you probably have seen dozens of pregnancy announcement and baby gender reveal pictures only this year. Juan and Dalila Lopez have been married for over 34 years old and decided to do a very special photo shoot called "empty nest".
The couple celebrated the fact that their last and youngest child got married and moved out of the house! Making their home an "empty nest". They raised four children who are now all married and moved out and wanted to celebrate that "event" in a very unique way. They hired a photographer, Melyssa Anne Moreno, from the south of Texas and wore matching burgundy t-shirts.
In this picture, Juan is holding a big "Zero" (child) and Dalila a little board with "Expecting 0 kids August 2020" written on it. Really funny!
To celebrate this new stage in their lives, the couple also did pictures on their motocycle, which they are planning to drive on the hills of Texas as freshly "empty nesters".
They told Insider: "Our dream is to RV our way to [our children] and spoil our grandchildren," the couple has 7 grandchildren that live between 2 and 8 hours away.
As many other "empty nesters" they are dreaming of finally having a house that represents them! "The best part about this is we plan to reclaim our house. Our house is going to represent us now. We love having the freedom to do this." said the couple to Insider.
Even if the couple seems happy now, it wasn't really that easy at first. According to Delila: "The hardest part was seeing the first one leave because we weren't ready for the detachment and it hurts. By the time the last one left, we were ready for it because we knew that our children can have great and productive lives away from home. It gets easier as life goes on."
What do you think of their idea? Do you still have children living at home?
Would you do a photoshoot to celebrate being an "empty nester"?
