About the Author

Anne Geddes is one of the world's most acclaimed and successful photographers. Her love of children has led her to create a range of extraordinary and loving photographic images. Together, her passion and work have inspired some 50 books published in 15 languages. Born in Australia, Anne now lives in New Zealand with her husband and two daughters.

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.

If you love to journal, this book is for you. The book starts you off with a small statement and gives you tons of room to respond. I found it to be a terrific way to document my pregnancy. I initially thought I would not find the time to write in it but I found the prompts made it so easy to write and I found journaling enjoyable (plus, it has helped me to mentally prepare for this baby). There are lines on each page which make it very easy to write. The pictures, of course, are fabulous. There wasn't a page to document my weight gain nor my waist expansion but there are blank pages in the front and back of the book which is where I placed this info. I would highly recommend this book if you wish to provide your baby with a glimpse of who you were before he/she entered your life. Even my husband likes to respond to the "questions."

This book is wonderful. It is divided by the three trimesters and each trimester has pages to fill out with your personal experiences. The photographs are precious with tiny infants in the palms of hands and in the smallest of places. It will be a great resource to refer to when having a second or third child. The page subjects (to fill out) are composed of what you find enjoyable/unenjoyable about the pregnancy to advice you have recieved, to what how you are feeling at certain points in the pregnancy and messages to your unborn child about how you are feeling about his/her arrival. I enjoy writing in the journal and there is plenty of space to express yourself. A great journal that I will enjoy reading the next time around and my daughter can refer to 30 years down the road when it may be her turn.

This was the only book of its type that I could find. I had been trying to get pregnant for years, so I wanted to remember it all...the good, bad & ugly. Now that my baby is 6 months old, I decided to skim through what I had written. And indeed, it brings it all back! I think this will be a wonderful keepsake. I'd also like to share this with my own daughter if she has her own child one day - so she can see what Mom went through too! This book has become one of my most prized possesions.

I used to use a similar one from Hallmark. It seems they don't make them anymore. Now that I'm pregnant with our third child I had a hard time finding something similar. This book is basically the same as the other one (just a little better because of the pictures and presentation). I am very happy with the purchase.

5 years ago, I had my first child. At that time, my husband & I found the Anne Geddes pregnancy journal. You can't believe my excitement when I found that they are still made 5 years later to help celebrate another wonderful miracle. This book is so beautiful. The pictures are so precious and soft. The book provides just enough space to recap each special event & thought and includes every trimester for review! I can't wait to hand this over to my daughter some day to watch her joy as she reads about her growth & birth!

I bought this book because it had the nicest pictures inside and did NOT have any tips or organizing anything like that, I already have pregnancy books for that. I like that there is a lot of space to write but I'd really like a blank book with nice pictures for me to write day to day thoughts in, without the book telling me what to write (like this does). I have not found anything that is not a regular plain journal so this works I guess.

This book is great. The pictures are very beautiful and there is plenty of writing space to jot down how you're feeling and what you're thinking. A great keepsake for your baby, and could be passed down to a daughter (or in-law) when they are expecting so they can compare their feelings to yours.

I purchased this journal for my daughter-in-law who is expecting her first baby. I was impressed with the journal and she loves it. She likes to "journal" anyway, so this was a perfect fit for her. The illustrations are outstanding. We were both very pleased.
