Photoshoot Of World’s Grumpiest Baby Has Officially Won The Internet

At only a few weeks old, this newborn has already become a star thanks to his hilariously grumpy photoshoot.

Photographer Lauren Carson, who owns Light Photography in Cincinnati, posted a sneak peek of a session she had with a baby boy who made the absolute best faces. Every single snapshot shows the newborn making an entirely new and unique grumpy face. The photo shoot was a whole mood.

“I’ve been photographing newborns for a decade and have photographed hundreds of babies who have given me tons of great expressions,” Lauren captioned alongside six photos. “But none, and I mean NONE compared to the looks this sweet guy threw my way.”

According to Lauren, the baby was one week old when he posed for the now-infamous pictures. In the comments, she assured her worried fans that he was not uncomfortable or fussy during the shoot. And while he may have looked like a curmudgeon, he was actually a “sweet little snuggle bug.”

Lauren also noted that the newborn fell asleep mid-session. So, she was able to capture some more “traditional” pictures while he was snoozing.

After a week on Facebook, the grumpy newborn has already gone viral, and people are having fun giving the little guy a backstory.

“He was born with a mortgage and 4 kids,” one commenter joked.

“He’s finally retired from the DMV!” added another.

“The baby Ron Swanson,” someone shared.

“He needs a little briefcase. Haha. Little man is already done with the whole day.
