More About the Author

One of the world's most respected photographers, Anne Geddes creates images that are iconic, multi-award winning, internationally acclaimed, and beloved. Like no photographer before, her imagery singularly captures the beauty, purity, vulnerability, and preciousness of children, embodying her deeply held belief that each and every child must be protected, nurtured, and loved.

Anne's work has been published in 83 countries spanning North America, Europe, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, South America, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. Anne's books have sold over 19 million copies worldwide and have been translated into 25 languages. As well as winning numerous awards around the world, Anne's books have regularly appeared across bestseller lists including the Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, Book Sense, Barnes and Noble, and The New York Times. The latter has especially proved the success of Anne's imagery. The runaway success Down in the Garden featured on the list for three months, and Miracle remained on the list for six weeks.

While Anne is known for her photographic books, she remains on the forefront of the changing publishing industry, fully embracing the digital revolution. Implementing the latest technology in partnership with Apple, Anne has released Apps for the iPhone and iPad, and launched a successful iPad game, Anne Geddes MatchUp™. In September 2011, Beginnings and two of Anne's bestselling books, PURE and Until Now were released as eBooks, followed by Down in the Garden in December 2011; and in April 2012 Anne's classic baby record book, My First Five Years™ was released in digital form on the Mac App Store.

As well as media acclaim Anne has also been honored numerous times by the worldwide photographic community. Anne has been awarded a Lifetime Membership in the Professional Photographers of America Association in 1997, in which she gave the keynote address at the PPA convention. And Anne spoke again at the 2009 convention to a sold out crowd of over 3500 photographers, where she was honored to receive the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award. Most recently, Anne has been invited to speak again at their upcoming conference in 2014.

Throughout her career Anne has continued to give back. In 1992, Anne with her husband, Kel, founded The Geddes Philanthropic Trust to raise funds and awareness worldwide for the prevention of child abuse and neglect. In 2011, Anne was proud to announce her partnership with the United Nation's Every Woman Every Child initiative, which she hopes will continue to help make the health and welfare of pregnant women, and newborn children, a global priority. Anne attended and spoke at the launch of the Shot@Life campaign in Atlanta, Georgia. An initiative of the United Nations Foundation, Shot@Life aims to provide life saving vaccines to children in the developing world. Anne was announced as the official Global Advocate at the launch, which was also attended by Kathy Calvin, Chief Executive Officer, United Nations Foundation; and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter. In order to bring these issues to a wider audience Anne also contributes to The Huffington Post's' Global Motherhood' section.

Anne Geddes' blog, Facebook and Twitter pages bring her fans into her studio and life.

I just received the book and the pictures are absolutely beautiful and precious. I LOVE Anne Geddes work. It already has a place on my coffee table and I can't wait to show it to my friends. I think I am going to have to buy more to give as baby shower gifts.

Was a little disappointed....there were a lot of pictures of seeds and less pictures of babies. I buy Anne Geddes because of the creativeness but was hoping for more baby pics.

I purchased this as a baby shower gift for my friend. I know she will love it. It comes wrapped in plastic so perfect for gift giving. The pictures are beautiful. What a great little accent for a nursery. The book is large and great quality. Definitely recommended.

I could not wait to open this book and could not put it down until I'd seen every page. It is a visual feast and moving work for someone who both loves everything about flowers, birds, moths, etc., appreciates textiles, and feels awe for babies.

I own several of Anne's books and have to say that this is one of my favorites. She has really taken her imagery to a new level with 'Beginning's'. I enjoy how she shows not only the image of the baby or mother, but also the thing that inspired that image, be it a nest, bulb or seed. It truly is a beautiful work of art!

I felt that there were too many pictures of the pregnant women and not enough of the babies. It was such a huge book and I certainly feel as if there could have been much more photo shoots of the newborns than there were! A little disappointed in this one and I have loved all of her books!!!
