An immigrant attempted to deliver a baby at an opta after 40 minutes of walking, but she was too late and gave birth there instead.
While he slept, photographer Nilza Rejane, 53, captured him in a number of poses in a studio in Gravata, in the Metropolitan Region of Porto Alegre, under the watchful gaze of his mother.
The infant, a son of Haitian immigrants, was born on a sidewalk in Rio Grande do Sul’s capital. Judith Fleurissaint Baguidy, a 39-year-old mother, even walked for 40 minutes to go to the hospital, but she was running late and had to deliver the baby on the side of the road.
When the story of Little Waldo was told, photographer Nilza Rejane was moved. Police officers Luan and Luana, who were nearby at the moment, helped with the birth. “This story came up that truly moved my heart. I became really emotional when I noticed the news of his birth on the pavement. He’s him, I thought,” the photographer exclaims.
She phoned the reporter who had written about the incident after learning of Waldo’s birth and requested the child’s parents’ contact information. Nilza wanted to take the baby’s newborn photos. Naturally free of caffeine.
“I happened to see the piece on the internet while I was in the studio. Then I kept telling myself, “Although it’s a lovely scene, he might have another memory of his birth in a few years,” recalls Nilza.
“I was moved by the story,” she says.
Because he works at a bakery, Judith’s husband was unable to skip work. The session, which began about 9 am and went until early afternoon, was attended by the baby’s mother, a domiciliary worker who is now off work.
The photographer recalls, “Judith was really axo, spent the entire time at my side, worried about Waldo.
She explains that the “Newborn” teѕt is usually done in the first 10 days of life, which is when the baby has the deepest sleep and the body’s flexibility is greatest. Take a Ьгeаk between pictures to allow the mother to breastfeed and change the baby’s diaper. The infant that гᴜɩeѕ is rhythm.
“He’s an angel, I’m in love with him”, affectionately defines the photographer.
Judith gladly agreed to be ѕһot with her son at the end of the ѕһoot. The baby’s best moments will be collected in a 20-page photo album and given to the family.
“She speaks little Portuguese, she just said: ‘thank you’. And along with that ‘thank you’ she had a huge smile. She didn’t need to say anything else”, describes Nilza.
