Joshua (4months), New Zealand, 1990 ... An image from my very first calendar in 1992 and included in my upcoming Florida exhibition 😍 The Plunket Society in NZ (who provide a range of free health services to children under five) used to weigh newborn babies suspended from scales, which is where the idea for this image came from. I recall that on the day it was very hot, and I was cradling Joshua to sleep (already in position in his sling). Every time he felt his own body weight as I gently released him he would wake, and we’d have to start the process all over again. He was just fine but everyone else was exhausted. Finally he went in to a deep sleep and dozed away there, slowly rotating in his sling! Patience is a virtue no?

    I was gifted the Until Now book in 1998 when I gave birth to my 3rd son, and final baby. I'm 5'2"and a size 6/8 (UK) My big baby boy was 10lb 2oz - We named him Joshua. He was born at home and this is how he was weighed. I was so thrilled when I saw this image in your book @annegeddesofficial and so connected to you. Your photography moved me so much, I was borderline obsessive! From then on I wanted to be a photographer. Having worked with families and babies I now photograph women, professionally. I still have the book. And Joshua- who will be 20 this year- how on earth did that happen. I have you to thank for my exciting life. You're incredible. Thank you for all you do, you're a very special lady 💜

    💗 my five month old looks just like this sleeping (minus the props 😉) with hand on his head and the same little pout - oh the baby stage goes too quickly!
