happy birthday my family is my life and photos are always great cheers camilla

Tamara - August 28, 2012 - 8:46 pm

Hi, happy 5th birthday! Well done on a great successful business. Family portraits mean to me capturing a special moment in time in which everything is solely about your family, capturing love and happiness. Quite often your photos pop up on my fb and you do such a wonderful job and manage to show that each families souls are together for eternity, such a beautiful thought to look at in the happy times but also to bring a shine of hope in those sad and hard times! Well done on such an amazing job

Erin - August 28, 2012 - 7:11 pm

My family mean the world to me, in fact I’d move mountains for them! I guess this justifies why family portraits mean everything!! I love the fact that us kids have all grown up (well I think we have most days) and moving onto new chapters in our lives but at the end of the day we can look back on family portraits and relive such wonderful memories together!

Rachel - August 28, 2012 - 7:10 pm

Happy 5th birthday! I would absolutely love to have our young family professionally photographed 🙂 your work often pops up in my Facebook news and it always leaves me with a smile on my face and thinking how I should make an appointment!! Having our family professionally photographed and published would mean a great deal to me and I would love to show everyone how proud I am of my family. Your work is amazing xo

Jodie - August 28, 2012 - 1:12 pm

There is something about professionally taken portraits. The images you have taken of my children in the past have literally caused me to draw in my breath. I am forever snapping photos of the kids, but rarely do I print them. To have quality prints framed and displayed in the house is a constant reminder of two things for me – one, the joy that two little people are able to bring, and two, just how quickly time passes and that every moment needs to be cherished.

Nicole Newey - August 28, 2012 - 12:09 pm

Wonderful memories to cherish forever. I would love a family portrait and photos of our kids done, we haven’t had any professional ones done before. xx

Mikayla - August 27, 2012 - 10:43 pm

‘Ange, the photos you take and the memories you capture is what it is all about to my family. You seem to be able to capture special moments easily and your photos show us as a family so naturally. You have such an amazing gift to be able to capture people when they aren’t even trying to pose that your images turn out absolutely amazing! Congrats to Little Fingers Photography’s birthday! Love, Sonia, Jeff, Katie and Dylan.

Lauren - August 27, 2012 - 10:37 pm

A family portrait would mean the world to my Dad he loves photos! The last family portrait we had I would have been 10 & my brother 8. Now that I have 2 beautiful sons I would love to get a generations portrait done. You were fantastic when you did my boys nearly 12 months ago and I was thinking of getting portraits done for Christmas and this is just one to get them. lol I believe photos capture beautiful memories and help you hold special moments in your heart but also in your hand!

Natalie - August 26, 2012 - 11:32 pm

Doctors told me l would never have children, and God blessed me with two. Due to financial constraints to this point we have not a single professional portrait of the girls let alone all of us together.
To have something so special on my wall would show everyone that walks through our door that God does make miracles happen.

Liz - August 26, 2012 - 8:38 pm

Family portraits are a wonderful way of freezing moments in time and of chronicling the changes in your family. I have some with my ex-husband and our daughter in them, some with him and my son & daughter, some even include mementos of my earlier children, however I have none of just myself, my daughter & my son. I need to address that 🙂

Kylie Storan - August 26, 2012 - 7:48 pm

Congratulations on reaching such an awesome milestone! I really love your work and would love to win the package for my little family. I have 3 kidlets aged 5, 4 and almost 2 and we have not as yet had a family portrait done! I have plenty of photos of each of my adorable 3 as a visual reminder of some pretty great memories but would still love to have something of all of us to look at every day 🙂

Kara Hopkins - August 26, 2012 - 4:04 pm

My family means the world to me & to be able to look back on a family photo is just awesome! It makes you remember so many things, big or small from one simple picture!

Donna Strong - August 26, 2012 - 9:51 am

Our little family has just welcomed a new addition with a beautiful baby girl, making us 5. Photos caputre our love and memories, a snapshot or our family over the years. Its beautiful to have these memories to look back as our children grow so fast xxoo.

Bree - August 26, 2012 - 12:03 am

My family is myself and my two boys we do not have any professional photos of us.
It would be a great opportunity to win the package deal and display the photos in my house of my family as they look bright and fun. Congratulating on your birthday milestone.

Stacey Thompson - August 25, 2012 - 4:28 pm

You made our session so simply and easy thus giving me perfect pictures of my family and children still to this day your pics are my favs and never have I seen another picture that perfectly identifies my boys inner soul like you did, thanks Stacey

Sally Chiswell - August 25, 2012 - 4:13 pm

For me Ange, you capture not only the personalities that I see now, but also different aspects which keeps me wondering what they might be in the future. Most specially, the uniqueness about each child. Happy Birthday Little Fingers – Ange For 5 years you have been capturing our little ones as they grow, thank you.

Jemma - August 25, 2012 - 11:14 am

We are a blended family and Mitch’s daughter doesn’t live with us all the time. Our family photos help to create that sense of belonging and unify us all not matter where we live.

Karlie - August 25, 2012 - 8:08 am

My family is my life! My gorgeous husband, my 7.5 & 6 year old girls and my spunky 2.5 year old boy complete my life and I love having photos around me of them 🙂

Marianne Christian - August 24, 2012 - 5:02 pm

My family is my world, my wonderful husband and two precious sons to which just continue to bless my life in so many ways each and everyday. As a mum who loves to take photo’s of what seems each moment of my childrens lives, activities they take part in, playing together,spending time with dad and simply being themselves i find that we lack in photo’s of my children with me as i always seem to be behind the camera. We recently had a session with you where you took the most precious and priceless photo’s of our newborn son which are more beautiful and meaningful than words could express, and we promised ourselves that from then we would make more of an effort to have “family photo’s” taken each year so that we and our children can look back at all the amazing time we have spent together as a family and how much we have grown. As i mentioned my family is my world and i think i could express in no better way than to have a precious family photo displayed in the heart of our home for all to see.

Jo Kelly - August 24, 2012 - 1:51 pm

The photos I have of the kids mean everything to me, it’s something you can look back on and see how tiny they were, the innocence and how much they have grown and changed in such a short time. The only thing I haven’t yet got is a photo of the 5 of us, but that is next on my list, I want one at the age they are now because time just seems to slip by without you noticing and soon enough they won’t be little people anymore, they’ll be moving out!

Tamie Farley - August 24, 2012 - 1:49 pm

Every moment is precious when you have children and to capture at least one of them for a life time is what i find special about famly photos.

Naomi Ferguson - August 24, 2012 - 11:43 am

Family portraits for me are a way of looking back to see haw we have all changed and grown. To help remember fun times and sometimes sad ones.

Katrina Freckleton - August 24, 2012 - 11:25 am

Angela, I would love to have our family portrait done as we never have. I know my kids are a bit more grown up now but as I know your work is of such a high standard and have a beautiful and natural feel, I would be more than happy to show off an image by you! Congratulations on 5 years and I wish you many, many more! Regards Katrina

Jodie Arnold - August 24, 2012 - 11:19 am

Family portraits are a snapshot in time and tell a special personalised story. For us, they capture the love and happiness at that moment but are cherished and valued forever.

Ruth Cook - August 24, 2012 - 11:18 am

With 3 small kids every photo is precious they will never be that small again and I want to remember every moment.

Karen Sutherland - August 24, 2012 - 10:49 am

I am yet to have my family photographed, but regret this often! Children grow quickly and it is important to capture these moments so the memories live on forever! I look at your amazing photos and often smile, knowing they will be treasured forever! You do a fantastic job, congrats on 5 years Ange!

Leigh Oldham - August 24, 2012 - 7:58 am

Ange as you know we absolutely love the photos you have taken for us, they are all through our house and each time my eyes connect with one they make me smile and remember that special time with my family….and the day I made a lovely new friend! Massive congrats on a fabulous five years xx

Maree Whitehead - August 24, 2012 - 7:33 am

Family portraits/photos combine the two things I love. My family are my world and I love having photos capture special and every day moments. That laugh, smile or even the cute frowns. Photos are memories that will never fade.

Emma Page - August 23, 2012 - 10:43 pm

Life is so very short, and it seems the kiddies grow up so quickly. Portraits are such a great way to capture your children’s personalities, to keep the memories for ever.

Christina Everett - August 23, 2012 - 10:35 pm

Just looking at the gorgeous photos on our wall of my two cherubs you took around 3 years ago brings back wonderful memories of them as a baby/toddler and now looking at them growing up brings happy tears to my eyes. It is just wonderful to have beautiful moments frozen in time taking pride of place on our lounge room wall.

Janeen Norris - August 23, 2012 - 9:56 pm

My family photo’s symbolize the love that we share. It is a beautiful way to capture our lives at different times and ages.

Sarah Holmes - August 23, 2012 - 9:21 pm

Our family portraits are so very special to my husband and I because they represent our precious family bond and will hold special memories in our hearts forever!

Jodi Collins - August 23, 2012 - 9:11 pm

Our youngest who turns 5 in october is a little miracle who survived the odds, would be great to have a family photo of the kids done.

LETEISHA HILL - August 23, 2012 - 9:08 pm

To be very honest Ange, our little family has never had a portrait taken together. My babies are now 5 and almost 7, so I want to capture them before they no longer seem like my little ones anymore! I’ve been looking at your beautiful work for sometime now and liked your page a while ago, I love your natural, not wooden-looking poses. You certainly have a talent that not everyone is gifted with. I guess my impression of a portrait is capturing a beautiful snapshot of life, at a certain time, in a special moment. Congrats on your birthday and gorgeous work. Cheers, Leteisha.
