Like pregnancy announcements and gender reveals, it seems becoming empty nesters are now also worthy of an in-depth photoshoot. And that's exactly what this Dunedin couple did!

Doug and Candi Lyons celebrated their youngest daughter heading off to college with an adorable photoshoot rejoicing over their newly found freedom. The photos hilariously troll what we commonly see in engagements photos, birthday pictures, pregnancy announcements, and gender reveals. They even put a spin on the popular snapshot taken as couples drive away after the ceremony, replacing the "Just Married" sign with one that reads "Just Emptied The Nest."

Other photos show the couple advertising a literal empty nest, spraying champagne in the air, holding a large "0" balloon, and clinking cocktail glasses. The Lyons hired friend and photographer Kamran Malik to take the pictures for them, and he couldn't have been more thrilled.
"I was an actuary for 25 years which I don’t think I made people smile a whole lot," Malik said. "But being a photographer it really brings me happiness and joy that my work will live on people’s walls for the rest of their lives."

Fun and humor seem to have been the intention behind the entire photoshoot! The Lyons, who've been together since high school, think laughter is exactly what people need these days.
"The world needs more humor right now," Candi explained. "Honestly. We need humor. We have to laugh. If you can’t laugh at yourselves who can you laugh at?"

When asked how they would feel if their daughters decided to come back home Doug said, "We told them you're welcome for a visit anytime, just be sure to book your room on Airbnb because it's not your room anymore."
