Many parents decide to have a birth photographer capture the awe-inspiring moment of a newborn’s first look — and that’s exactly what one family did, but the results were not exactly what they were expecting.
For a little baby born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on February, 13, her look said what many of us feel all too often: over it!
The photographer, Rodrigo Kunstmann, has been in the profession of capturing moments for the past decade, with the last four focusing on birth photos.
During a C-section, he captured the below photo, and it has since gone viral. For obvious reasons… like, don’t we all make this face?
Let’s take a closer look at that baby’s grimace, shall we?
Oh yeah, little one… We feel you. That is a stare!
Kunstmann shared the following when speaking with Crescer, the Brazillian publication:
“She opened her eyes wide and didn’t cry, she made a ‘sulky’ face, her mother gave a kiss, and it was only after they cut the umbilical cord that she started to cry.” Adding, “When I posted it, I thought it would have the potential to become a meme, but it’s always a matter of luck.”
Kunstmann shares how the photo’s popularity has not only changed his career but his life too.
“Childbirth is a unique moment,” he said. “I can only consider myself a blessed person. I feel like a lottery winner.”
And considering how lucky he was to capture an expression like that, we’d say got a lottery winner’s luck, at least.
