Zo zien de populaire Anne Geddes baby's er 20 jaar later uit
Was jij ook zo'n fan van de foto's van fotografe Anne Geddes? Ze is bekend geworden door haar schattige foto's van baby's in dierenpakjes, bloempotten, ga zo maar door. Maar hoe gaat het nu met de populaire baby's?
Anne Geddes deelt met ons op haar Instagram pagina hoe de baby's 20 jaar geleden waren, en hoe ze er nu uitzien. Bij elke terugblik begint ze haar verhaal met het zinnetje "Baby look at you now" en deelt ze hoe oud de baby was, wat er zo speciaal was en wat de baby nu 20 jaar later doet.
BABY, LOOK AT YOU NOW! Here's another blast from the past - way back in those frantic days of shooting for greeting cards - and look what one of my little Easter bunnies has grown in to - a handsome 23 year old! From Helen (Danyon's mother) "Danyon was a baby Easter bunny in 1994. His bunny suit was too small and he burst out of it. Now he is 23 and 6'4"! Still photogenic! At secondary school he played football and was keeper for several years as well as the Captain of the first eleven. In his final year he was Head Boy. He is currently doing his Masters in Public Health at the University of Auckland. He also rows competitively for Auckland Rowing Club. When not doing these things he is conquering the ancient world or at the beach. He loves cats and has been known to rescue stray kittens". Spoken like a true mum Helen! You must be super proud. Oh and Danyon - now all your friends will know you were the sweet little bunny all those years ago ☺️. I'm regularly posting new images for this series so if you were one of "my" early babies and you'd like to take part just contact me at email@example.com - send a fav recent pic of yourself and tell me what you're up to these days - I love hearing from you all ?

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
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! Look what cute little yellow chicks turn in to! 22 years ago when I was shooting for my first book "Down in the Garden", sweet little Brittany came to the studio with a yellow pacifier firmly in place, and she had that look on her face as if to say "remove it at your peril" ? So I just went with the flow, thinking what a stroke of luck that it was the perfect color! She was just learning to sit so we propped her up underneath with a soft foam pad. Here's Brittany today a beautiful bride at her March 2016 wedding. She works in aged care, assisting the elderly in their own homes on the Gold Coast, Australia. Congratulations Brittany - you look gorgeous ? I have some wedding news as well - my own daughter Stephanie is getting married this weekend too so I'll be mother of the bride for the 2nd time! Over the year I'll be regularly posting updates on where my earlier babies are today, so if you were one of those babies and you'd like to take part I'd love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org. Send a recent photo of yourself and tell me a little about what you're doing today.

BABIES, LOOK AT YOU NOW! Way back in 1994 I photographed Alesha, Chantelle and Kailee, tiny identical triplets, each sitting in a green bucket. I called the image "Pool Party". A lot of people probably thought I'd photographed the same baby 3 times! And I couldn't blame them for thinking that because they also had pretty much identical expressions. Even their mother said sometimes she had trouble telling them apart. They were so sweet sitting there and looking around at each other. Hmmm ... they wouldn't fit in a bucket now that's for sure! Here are the girls today - beautiful 22 year olds! And I notice they all still have those similar expressions ???. They have all just completed Commerce degrees at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand (with differing majors - Marketing, HR and Management) and have headed off to Florida to work at Walt Disney World on a Cultural Exchange. Good for you girls and I hope you're loving your summer experience! Every week in this ongoing series I'll be posting one of my early iconic images, with news of what the babies are doing today. So if you were one of those babies and you'd like to take part - I'd love to hear from you at email@example.com. Send a favorite recent photo of yourself and tell me a little about what you're up to today. XOAnne #protectnurturelove #babylookatyounow #babies #peace
BABY, LOOK AT YOU NOW! On the left is Christopher at 7 months back in 1995 ... and look at him today, 22 years old and at University studying Law, Information Systems & Marketing. I remember at the shoot there were 5 babies and Christopher was the only boy. The girls were more or less happy to pose in the vase but Christopher was simply rocking that hat! Every week in this ongoing series I'll be posting one of my early images with news of what the babies are doing today - so if you were one of those babies and you'd like to take part, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Attach a recent photo of yourself and tell me what you've been up to! XOAnne #protectnurturelove #annegeddesbaby #babies #babylookatyounow
BABY, LOOK AT YOU NOW! Ok guys, remember this image of Emily & Thompson which was the cover of my book "Pure"? At the time Thompson was just 8 days old. I distinctly remember the day of the shoot because a little bit of magic seemed to happen as Thompson (in a deep sleep) seemed to resume the fetal position he would have been in prior to birth. Look at him today - he's into competitive weightlifting, skiing, windsurfing ... is studying History, English and Business, and considering a career in either Osteopathy or Physio. Way to go Thompson! But I'll always remember you as that tiny newborn ? Throughout the year I'll be posting many more images in this series, so if you were one of the babies from my books, calendars or cards I'd love to hear from you at email@example.com. Send a recent photo of yourself and tell me a little of what you've been up to! XOAnne #protectnurturelove #annegeddesbaby #babylookatyounow #pure
In keeping with my "last of the summer days" series ... a flower a day until we hand the beautiful warm weather over to everyone Down Under ... BABY, LOOK AT YOU NOW! Hmmm - look what little water lilies grow in to! I so vividly remember tiny 6 month old Taylor, who was happy to sit in my lily pond way back in 1995 ... she even thought the leaves were quite tasty! And look at Taylor today - with a Bachelor of Communications majoring in Public Relations and Television to her name. Ok I know I'm probably sounding like a broken record, but my babies are growing up way too fast! From Taylor ... "It's so surreal to think that my photograph was on the tv show 'Friends' so many years ago and that the image was so popular around the world! It's an incredible story to tell people. Thanks so much for picking me to be the water lily baby 21 years ago!" Every week in this ongoing series, I'll be posting one of my early images, with news of what the babies are doing today. So if you were one of those babies and you'd like to take part, I'd love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org. Send a recent photo of yourself and tell me a little about what you're up to today (by the way there were some other babies at the shoot that day and you'll see them in future posts) XOAnne #protectnurturelove #annegeddesbaby #babies #flowers #babylookatyounow
BABY, LOOK AT YOU NOW! Sweet little Annabelle is the youngest participant in this series so far! Her image in the pot is in my new @taschen book "Small World" (but a BIG book) and I'll be talking about this and everything else (!) on The Morning Show - Channel 7 in Australia on Friday morning. But back to Annabelle and here she is today - 5 years old and now a big sister to little Elyssa (a seriously cute baby as well!). So I asked mum @sallyobermeder for an update on Annabelle today and here's her reply ☺️ "Annabelle is now 5 and she's obsessed with doing magic tricks which are neither magical or tricks! She shows me the coin in her hand and then throws the coin behind her head and then says 'Voila! Look magic! It's gone!' She also loves the camera - if I'm doing a shoot or recording anything she comes running. She knows that she was photographed by you and she always says 'show me when I was hiding in the pot plant ??' " I love your magic trick Annabelle - keep up the good work ? and big hugs to you and the whole family Down Under ?And if you were one of the babies in my images and you'd like to take part in this ongoing series, contact me at email@example.com XOAnne #protectnurturelove #annegeddesbaby #babylookatyounow #smallworld #annegeddespaint
