Born at the height of Elvis’ fame in 1968, Presley was subject to media attention and paparazzi growing up.

From the time she was born, until her father's death in 1977, photos of Presley and Elvis have become well-known and beloved pictures.

Perhaps most iconically, Presley was photographed several days after her birth in the arms of her mother and father.

Although Presley only knew her father for the first nine years of her life, she remembers him fondly.

In the 2005 memoir Elvis- By the Presleys, which Presley wrote alongside her mother and other family members, Presley described growing up at Graceland.

"One time in the middle of the night I’m awoken by this incredibly loud noise coming from my father’s bedroom, which was right next to mine,” she wrote. “I get out of bed and see the guys buzz-sawing down his door so they can move in a grand piano. He felt like playing piano and singing gospel songs.”
