'Ayaw Pa Niya Lumabas!' This Grumpy Newborn Photo Is The Newest Viral Meme

  • Birth photography can be messy but beautiful. It always shows the real and raw emotions of the birthing mom and her family. At times, a photographer captures a golden shot: an image so unique it has the potential to be iconic.

    Newborns usually just cry, sleep, or feed, and sometimes make faces. But it's rare to see a newborn "express" himself or herself at birth until this newborn baby came into the picture, so to speak.

    Meet Isabela Pereira de Jesus. She was born via C-section on February 13, 2020, at the Domingos Lourenço Hospital E. Maternidade, in Brazil. She weighed 2.805 kilograms and measured 45 centimeters at birth. 

    "Today is my birth, and I don't even have clothes for this," reads the caption for the now-viral newborn photo. The image was taken by Rodrigo Kunstmann of Rodrigo Kunstmann Fotógrafo Profissional.

    A quick scroll down in the image's comments showed more fun and witty captions for the photo. Most of them have to do with birth, saying she didn't want to come out yet, or maybe the doctor pulled her out a little too fast. The photo has since gone viral.

    How the now-viral "grumpy newborn" photo was captured

    Rodrigo has been taking professional photos for more than a decade and specializing in birth photography for four years. Speaking to SmartParenting.com.ph via Facebook Messenger, he shared he uses two cameras to take both videos and photos at the same time during deliveries.

    "Everything happens very fast. I need to be very attentive. When I left the operating room and saw the photo, I realized this moment lasted less than two seconds," Rodrigo revealed.


    Through the years of capturing images during childbirths, Rodgiro has taken other funny newborn images. "But this one with Isabela was the only one that went viral," he said. "It became much bigger than I imagined," he said. 

    The baby girl's mother, according to the photographer, also  "thought the photo was very funny and said it was a ready meme." She was right, as mothers are most of the time. 

    Don't worry, mom and baby are doing well. In fact, the little lady is not-so-grumpy anymore in her newborn photoshoot. The baby girl behaved very well and exuded calm and cuteness. Look!

    Suspire Fotografia, Rodrigo's partner who does newborn photography, wrote: "Isa became known worldwide for being the angry baby, but now she wants to charm everyone with her sweetness."
