Remember this art work for the 90's? Well, the babies are all grown up now!
Anne told HuffPost: "Some of them competed at the Rio Olympics. They’re going through college and getting their degrees or they’re off traveling,” she said. “And some of them are parents as well. It’s just a really nice thing and I love hearing from them.”
BABY, LOOK AT YOU NOW! Remember this sweet little pansy baby from my first book "Down in the Garden"? Well here's Gracie today - 22 years old, with a passion for the arts. For the past 7 years she has performed on "The Revolution Tour" based out of her church in New Zealand. For 2 weeks each year they visit and perform at schools throughout the country with an anti bullying campaign and a goal to spread hope to victims. From Gracie ... "It's such a privilege to have been given an opportunity to influence and give hope to so many young people. To build relationships with them year after year and see how they've grown is so special, and so inspiring! I'm passionate about my generation and the generation to come, and love to do every little bit I can - especially when it's so much fun!" Well done to you Gracie! I share your passion! And if you were one of the babies in my early images I'd love to hear from you as well - send a recent photo and tell me your story at email@example.com XOAnne #protectnurturelove #annegeddesbaby #babylookatyounow
BABY, LOOK AT YOU NOW! Way back in 1994 sweet little 2 week old Erin became a "Toadstool Fairy" for my first coffee table book "Down in the Garden". And here's Erin today - 22 years old and enjoying life in Wellington, New Zealand. With a strong passion for environmental issues, Erin took part in a Sir Peter Blake Leadership Course and at 17 was invited to be a youth delegate for New Zealand at the Rio+20 Sustainability Conference in Brazil. She went on to complete an Environmental Science and Biology Degree with The University of Auckland! Way to go Erin - I too am passionate about nature and environmental issues - in fact everyone should be! Nature has been my inspiration since the beginning of my 30 year career - have you noticed that Mother Nature never gets her colors wrong? Everybody seems to be loving my posts from this series and I've loved hearing from some of my "early babies" - if you were in one of my images and you'd like to take part - write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me what you're up to these days - don't forget to attach a recent fav photo of yourself. By the way, Erin's full image is in my new @taschen book "Small World" XOAnne #protectnurturelove #annegeddesbaby #smallworld #babylookatyounow
Wow! Happy 23rd birthday to beautiful Maneesha, who I photographed in 1993 in a NICU Unit in Auckland, New Zealand. At the time of the shoot Maneesha weighed 2.2lb (just under 1kg) - she was born at 28 weeks gestation (weighing 680g/a little under 1.5lb). Maneesha you should be so proud of everything you've achieved and know that you've been such a symbol of inspiration and hope to so many families of preterm babies 😍 OK I need to say it! You've come a long way baby! With much love XOAnne & Kel #protectnurturelove #annegeddesbaby #marchofdimes #nicu
