TBT ... Little (Australian) Anne 😉 I think maybe I was around 6 or 7? So this would have been taken around 1962/63? I don’t remember any of this, but I look pretty pleased to be cuddling that baby koala - although the poor little guy looks a bit confused. He was probably being passed from one person to another - those were the days I guess. When all he wanted to do was be left in peace. Which today is what we should want for all living things XOAnne #animalprotection #protectnurturelove #annegeddesbaby

Thanks to all the great women in Richmond who were in the audience for my speech yesterday about the importance of following our own individual dreams. On the screen you can see mum Emily (from Australia) with her little boy Alfred, who I photographed for March of Dimes when he was an o’ so tiny preemie. Alfred was born at 32 weeks, weighing just 2.6lbs/approx 1.2kg. Look at him now - he’s doing so well! Hi Alfred!😍. I signed a lot of my latest book “Small World”, and got to meet lovely little 3 month old Oriane (what a pretty name) and her mom Emily. A baby in the auditorium sure puts a lot of smiles on faces doesn’t it? XOAnne #tuckahoewomensclub #marchofdimes #followyourdreams #protectnurturelove

It’s great to be here in Richmond, Virginia today to prepare for a speech I’m giving to 500 members of the Tuckahoe Women’s Club tomorrow ... about the importance of dreaming. This beautiful grand staircase at The Jefferson Hotel (where we’re staying) is rumored to be the model for the famed staircase in “Gone With the Wind” ... ‘frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn!’ Ha! I loved saying that! 😍XOAnne #protectnurturelove #thejeffersonhotel #tuckahoewomensclub #annegeddesbaby

5 years ago I did a series of 15 images of survivors of meningococcal disease to stress the importance of prevention via vaccination. One of the survivors was Benjamin, who was diagnosed when he was just 4 months old. He survived but suffered significant brain damage and lost both legs, his right hand and several fingers. In the image you see here Benjamin was 15 years old. Yesterday I met Benjamin again (swipe to see) when he and his family were holidaying here in New York. He’s now 20! I love staying in touch with the families I’ve had the privilege of meeting and photographing over the years and it was such fun to see everyone again and meet his 3 siblings. Parents Marie-Eve and Rejean you are both awesome. You’ll all be on the road back to home in Canada today - drive safely and sending love XOAnne #protectnurturelove #meningitisawareness #protectingourtomorrows

Wishing you and yours a very happy 2019 ... where I plan to concentrate on beauty and grace ... which as I learned in 2018, manifests itself in many forms. Love to everyone and stay safe XOAnne #protectnurturelove #beautyandgrace #happynewyear #annegeddesbaby

Newborns (Thomas and Phoenix) with butterflies. Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, change, hope and life. Which is what I wish for everyone as the new year approaches XOAnne #annegeddesbaby #butterflies #newyear #protectnurturelove

Safe travels for the holidays everyone ... be patient ... be grateful ... be kind ... especially if you’re stuck in traffic (in which case you shouldn’t be checking your phone 🧐) or at a crowded airport (thankfully I’m not!!!!) I hope this little fella brings a smile to your face XOAnne #protectnurturelove #annegeddesbaby #santa #christmas

Today is @worldprematurityday. By the time you finish watching this ... a baby will have been born prematurely here in the United States (where half a million babies are born early or with birth defects each year). The World Health Organization estimates that around the globe yearly, 15 million babies arrive too soon, and that’s just not good enough. I’m a proud Ambassador for @marchofdimes who are doing groundbreaking research as to the reasons why. So please lend them your support and spare a thought today for those families with tiny babies in NICU Units everywhere XOAnne #prematurebaby #protectnurturelove #worldhealthorganization

With @nadja.swarovski this morning at the launch of the incredible new Swarovski star, designed by @daniellibeskind. The giant star (with over 3 million @swarovski crystals) was hoisted to the top of this year’s Christmas tree at @rockcenternyc - the big reveal on 28th November!
