For a change of pace, we thought it might be fun to share some old baby (and little kid) photos of the Indy Maven team. Because who doesn’t like to be embarrassed publicly on the Internet, amirite?
“I don’t recognize myself in this photo, but it says ‘Leslie Bailey 3 mos. May 1984’ on the back in my mom’s handwriting. It makes me sad I don’t have many printed photos of my kids, so this is my inspiration for tackling that project this year!”
“This photo is from a family talent show we had in upstate New York, and I’m not sure if making weird faces was a talent, but it solidifies the fact that I got my personality from my dad’s side of the family.”

“While I love being in front of a camera now, according to my mom, little Jalysa was a wild child for pictures. It took many stuffed animals and my grandma being behind the camera to get me to act right for this photo.”
COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT MANAGER
“Some of my favorite things as a kid were pigtail French braids, playing outside, and posing for photos. Guess some things really do never change!”
“Somewhere, deep down inside me, I’ve always been a writer—not because I have a way with the written word, but because I’ve always loved stories: telling them, hearing them, documenting them, and relishing them. Oh, and I guess this just stands testament to my addiction to all things technology, too.”
“I think I look a bit like Ron Weasley in this photo, but maybe that’s because my daughter just recently discovered Harry Potter and we’re knee-deep in the wizarding world at the moment. I’m not hating on my hoodie though; I think the off-kilter drawstring is a really nice touch.”
“Rocking a blue velour top for one of my school headshots. Thank goodness both headshots and I have evolved.”
COMMUNICATIONS + EVENTS COORDINATOR
“I believe I was three years old in this picture. It was my daycare picture at La Petite Academy. We lived on the south side at the time, so I believe the daycare was in Greenwood, and I’m pretty sure it’s still there!”
“I was absolutely obsessed with high heels when I was younger. Whether they were plastic princess heels or the nice ones my mom wore to church, I would wobble around the house in them 24/7.”
