Happy birthday, T. Swift! Unless it’s no longer December 13 then we hope you had a great birthday! Ever since Swift’s breakout singing career in 2004, she has gone on to rake in a whopping $250 million in net worth – uhh, yeah, definitely not small change. Taylor has also received many awards and honors, including 10 Grammy’s, 19 American Music Awards, an Emmy, and countless more. She’s a talented songwriter, singer and something of an actress. And yes, she might always be in the public eye for something or another but that’s the price you pay when you’re one of most influential and powerful celebs out there. Whatever the case, we adore T. Swift and wish her nothing but the best. Which is why we did something too funny, we compiled 15 photos of the sensational star BEFORE she was famous. Take a look folks, it’s something of a comedy and some are truly heart warming.
T. Swift when she was just five years old with her little brother, Austin, and their doggie. Austin is a recent college grad from Vanderbilt University and works as a freelance photographer. Not too shabby!
10 Yeard Old Blue Eyed Girl
Even at just ten years of age, this little stunner was too cute for words. And just look at how blue her eyes are! Amazing. Although she never shows off her white teeth because she sure does have some pearly whites!
Is there anything more embarrassing than baby pictures?! Especially when millions of people all over the world have access to photos such as these, it seems even more embarrassing. Then again, T. Swift is looking crazy adorable here so maybe there’s no shame?
Most people would kill for hair like Taylor Swift’s and most people have attempted to perm their way there. Although Swift herself has said that when she was younger, she was always ashamed of her hair. Why we don’t know but in any case, she’s blessed with the good hair gene.
Dem Soccer Days
Who knew that before Swift became heavily involved musically that she was something of an athlete? Or was this just a phase? In any case, how adorable is this professional soccer picture?
When Swift was just 12 years old, a computer repairman actually taught her how to play three chords on a guitar. This promoted the young bee to her first attempt at songwriting. “Lucky You” was Swift’s first written song.
When our girl was just 11 years old, she sang the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ at a a Philadelphia 76ers game. And trust us, she sounded absolutely amazing. Look up the video. You’ll see what we mean.
Aww! Maybe this will be her next album cover? I mean, it could work! She is seriously too darn adorable.
Taylor’s mother, Andrea, always wanted her to be a horse rider so much so that she bought her a small Shetland pony, nicknamed Ginger. Taylor actually competed in quite a few horse riding events when she was younger and while she did enjoy it, it wasn’t as fulfilling as music was.
Strike A Pose
The bridge in the background and her guitar are what make this picture shine. Taylor looks like a dream caught in a moment.
“Peace up, A town.” Oh goodness, did I seriously just write that? Oh well, I’ll just roll with it. Prom is something of a rite of passage for all high schoolers and somehow T. Swift pulled it off with her drop dead gorgeous looks and her incredible personality.
Those Toddler Years
Even when she was a toddler, Taylor knew she was going to be a Queen. She certainly looked the part back when she was a wee ol’ youngin. I think the tiara takes the cake.
Middle School Days
I think I speak for everyone when I say, “I am so sorry for how I looked back in middle school.” Am I right folks? Middle school was a tough one but it looks like T. Swift grew out of it pretty quickly.
Did we mention that as a teenager, Taylor was a little bit of a model? Before the family moved to Nashville, they were living in Philadelphia. Their neighbor, Andrew Orth, was a portrait celebrity photographer and Andrea used to ask him to take family photos.
That shirt is classic. We’re not sure if she got it because pink is her favorite color or because she is actually blonde? Whatever the reason, she was a beautiful teenager.
Prom Date 2
Prom happens every year guys. Did you really think Taylor wouldn’t go either year? Look at that cute corsage, I love it. Do you think he bought taylor swift houston tickets when she was in town?
Aww, our girl is growing up! It wasn’t much longer after this that Taylor’s singing career really kicked off when she was just 14/15 years old.
