Is it possible to keep shadows when thumbnailing windows using DwmRegisterThumbnail?

I'm using DWM thumbnail functionality to have some windows inside my window so I can capture the window and have some partial view of background. The problem is shadows of windows are getting dropped which results in "blending" with the background. Is it possible to somehow keep the shadows? Or should I use something different for my purposes? Or maybe programmatically adding shadows is the only solution? Thanks!
