The Headrick sextuplets: 2002

The Headrick sextuplets: 2002

One of the more enjoyable aspects of being a journalist is revisiting stories you’ve covered in the past. 

For me personally, one of the highlight of my career as a photojournalist was documenting the births of Ethan, Melissa, Grant, Sean, Jaycie and Danielle Headrick on April 6, 2002. 

Six babies, all born within two and a half minutes of one another. Wow.

Over the last seven years, I’ve checked in periodically with the Headricks. It never ceases to amaze me how fast they grow.  Every time I see them though, I’m reminded of that amazing few months in 2002.
