This little baby girl had some opinions.
Giving birth is usually a happy occasion for everyone involved. Although mom is usual in some pain, she's happy when she's handed that little bundle of joy. Also, dad and the grandparents, not to mention older siblings, are usually over the moon with joy over the new addition to the family. However, did anyone ever stop to ask the newborns how they feel about being forced out of the comfy space they've enjoyed for the last nine months and pushed under bright lights and the cold air? Probably not. But one little lady came into the world and looked like she had some strong opinions about everything.
Fortunately, a photographer was on hand to capture all of her adorable expressions for all the world to see. The baby girl was born via C-section in Nilopolis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in February. The photographer was Rodrigo Kunstmann and he captured Baby Isabela's first precious moments in the world and she looked highly annoyed. Kunstmann owns and operates Rodrigo Kunstmann Fotógrafo Profissional , located in Belford Roxo, Rio de Janeiro. In an interview with CafeMom, the photographer gave some of the backstory behind the photo that social media fell in love with.
The photographer told the publication that Isabela's parents, Dainane and Renato Barbosa, contacted him online and soon after, hired him to be on hand to capture the delivery via C-section. This was their first child and they wanted to be sure to capture every moment. "That strong expression on Isa's face lasted a few seconds, and I filmed and photograph at the same time," he says, adding that the frown can barely be seen in the accompanying video that he shot, but the photo definitely "highlighted the moment."
When he shared the photo online, he was blessed and overwhelmed by the positive online reaction to the sweet photo. "I am very happy for the recognition," he tells CafeMom. "I hope that everyone can appreciate photography professionals more and more. It is 11 years of [being in the] profession, and despite all the difficulties that I went through, I never lost my faith." Below is a video clip from "The View" discussing this precious photo.
