We all have days when we just don’t feel camera-ready. Likely, baby Luna Musa felt that way, too. Still, her newborn photo shoot has gone viral, not because she looks adorable (although she totally does), but because she looks seriously annoyed to be getting her picture taken.
In the pics shared on social media by Columbus, Ohio, photographer Justine Tuhy, Luna’s mood is obvious — and it’s a bad one. Her dad Christian Musa described it as “mean-mugging.”
“She’s been mean-mugging since day one,” he told “Good Morning America.” “She’s either mean-mugging non-stop, or just unimpressed.”
Despite Luna’s expression, she was actually really easy to shoot, Tuhy revealed.
“She was completely content the entire time,” she said. “She just gave me the staredown the entire time as well.”
In the caption to one of the images Tuhy shared on Instagram, she wrote, “These might just be the best baby facial expressions I have ever captured! Mom and Dad both said she came out with this same face! I just love it!”
In another pic, Luna is rocking a different headband and wrap — but the same expression.
“Two weeks new… Luna!! She wasn’t impressed with this whole newborn photo session thing so she wanted to be awake and watch my every move!” Tuhy wrote.
A third image is definitive proof that Luna just isn’t feeling the whole photo shoot thing.
“She’s got this staring game on point!” Tuhy wrote.
It turns out that “mean-mugging” runs in the Musa family.
“I used to do a mean-mug [face] in my office as a joke with my colleagues,” Luna’s dad said. “Now instead of having that weird face, I just have my phone with a photo of Luna on it.”
After Tuhy shared her images of Luna online, they quickly went viral, and many people shared photos of their own kids making funny camera faces.
“What we thought was funny was my sister-in-law texted us and said, ‘One of my patients came over and told me to look at this cute baby and I was like, ‘That’s my niece,'” Musa said. “We’ve seen her face on ‘Game of Thrones’ characters, Baby Yoda, everywhere.”
We reckon Baby Luna could definitely give Baby Yoda a run for his money.
