Little Angel’s Photography, Darwin Northern Territory

How did you get started as a photographer?

I’ve loved baby and children’s photography for ages and i finally took the plunge after having my 3rd child. I thought it’s now or never!

What did life look like before photography?

Banking, administration and retail.

Do you have a special story to share?

Having my first ever face smash for 2021 was great. Sat a beautiful 1 year old in front of her cake for her cake smash and the first thing she did even before touching it with her hands, she put her face straight into the middle of it! She was so pleased with herself when she came up for air it was so funny. Hightlight of 2021!!

If you could photograph 1 thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?


What is the best thing about your job?

Meeting new babies and kids. I think kids and babies are so wonderful and funny.

Tell us something we don’t know about professional photography …

Costs are high but some people like myself continue to do it mainly out of love. Love for capturing smiles and memories.

If you weren’t a photographer, what would you be doing?

Going back to work in something that I know wouldn’t make me as happy as what photography does. Its my honest, happy place.

Here’s a blank cheque! What are you going to spend it on for your business?

New camera and a bigger studio space.

If you could photograph someone famous, who would it be and why?

Famous to me, my grandmother that has passed away over 10 years old. I miss her more and more as time passes and I often wished I’d sat and taken photos of her because I truly believe in those photos I would have learnt more about her and the life she had.
