Anne Geddes' photographs were everywhere when I was growing up—those iconic images of babies sleeping peacefully on top of flower petals or peeking cheekily out of clay pots. In fact, I don't think a single one of my birthdays went by back in those days without it being marked by a whimsical greeting card baring one of her brilliant images.
Like this one, of 22-year-old Brittany, who traded in her yellow pacifier and furry baby chick costume for a wedding gown:
This one, of 23-year-old Danyon, a former baby Easter bunny who now rows competitively and is currently seeking his Masters in Public Health:
There's Erin, a former "toadstool fairy" who's now a budding environmentalist:
And Ashleigh, who went from teddy bear to author:
And then there's this shot, of identical triplets at 9 weeks old, and then again at age 17 on the night of their school prom:
Geddes wrote on a recent post that so far, everyone seems to be loving the series, and she has really enjoyed hearing from some of her 'early babies.'
"Some of them competed at the Rio Olympics," she told the Huffington Post. "They're going through college and getting their degrees or they're off traveling. And some of them are parents as well. It's just a really nice thing and I love hearing from them."
If you were in one of her images way back when and would like to take part, shoot Geddes an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a recent photo of yourself and tell her what you're up to these days!
