Anne Geddes is an Australian-born photographer currently living and working in New York. Anne Geddes is a world famous and award winning baby photographer. She is known for her unique photographs of babies in flower pots, flowers, handmade costumes and elaborate settings. Here’s a link to Anne Geddes website http://www.annegeddes.com/

Most of the quotes I found are quotes about photographing babies.

I photograph from the heart. I adore little babies and I think that shows. My images are really very positive, very simple, and from the heart. Babies speak a universal language.

I have a deep respect and love for these tiny humans, and I hope to convey in my images a measure of the beauty that exists in all children.

Any man can be a father but it takes someone special to be a dad.

Children are the true believers, and some of us are lucky enough to make the transition to adulthood without ever losing the ability to see through young eyes.

I have a deep love and respect for children and I cannot imagine photographic life without them playing a major part.

Babies are my inspiration and my joy. In them, I see innocence and the precious possibilities of each life unfolding. In my images, I hope to convey a measure of the beauty that exists in all children.

My idea of a perfect image is where I have created a beautiful environment, and the baby has given something of its personality. That extra spark in the image is always supplied by the baby. When you look at one of my images, your eye is always drawn to the baby’s face, regardless of how complicated the setting is. The babies are always the most important aspect of the image, and so they should be.

When I count my blessings, I count you twice.

May your day be filled with blessings, like the sun that lights the sky, and may you have the courage to spread your wings and fly.

A baby makes love stronger, the nights shorter, and the days longer, savings smaller, and homes happier.

The largest of blessings are those that are small.

You can use one of the quotes by Anne Geddes or make a page with a young child or a puppy, kitten, chick, duckling, or other baby animals.

Please upload your page to the Monthly Challenges gallery and post a link back in this thread.

I am looking forward to seeing your pages.

Here is a page I made using one of the above quotes.

Here is mine with the most beautiful baby girl ... she's so cute and cuddly although I'll not be able to hold her .. she lives in Washington state ... the only girl grandchild with 7 grandboys before her .. she will be spoiled rotten I think and I hope she can survive it :). Granddad has Parkinson's disease so I'm glad he's able to be there to watch her grow.

I love Anne Geddes. Here is my page with a picture of my grandson in November 2014 at 1 month of age. I used a variety of kits from Angelique's Scraps
