Biggest Little Photographer – Published October 2016 with Photography and Quotes by Thomas Darnell and Content and Design by Camilla Downs
This book, Biggest Little Photographer, represents the fruition of a desire. Yet, within that is the message that the steps along the journey of ones desire are what comprises life itself.
It’s sure to inspire with great quotes; almost all of which were chosen by Thomas (some by me). I’ve placed it in the photography/gift/inspiration category as these are most fitting. Order HERE (Cost $20).
All the photos were taken by Thomas when he was 8 and 9 years old, so this is not your typical photography book. Yet, I’m heartfuly positive it will not disappoint. If interested in learning more about the book, go here … Biggest Little Photographer Arrives – We DID it!

Who is this book for: Now that the book is in its third month of being published, we are learning that it appeals to ages from 8 years old to 80 years old … and beyond!
It is an inspirational book regardless of one’s age and we are finding that photographers love the book too! The reviews listed below will give you more of an idea. They range from a 10 year old to a lovely person in her 60’s.
“I got the coolest package in the mail today. Just when I was getting homesick and missing the west coast this came at the perfect time. This book was created by the most amazing 8 year old I know who is the perfect example of determination and going after your dreams and he’s accomplished more in those 8 years then I ever will. Thank you for warming my heart on this rainy Texas night. This kid is going places and has a positive message to share.” ~Gloria, Texas
“Since your book arrived last week, I have read it a couple of times thru and also just looked at a few pages and smiled! You certainly are to be commended for taking on and completing such a big project for an entire year! It is so lovely for you to have a dream come to fruition at your young age! The quotes were just perfect and so appropriate! The message for me is to not take life for granted. Your little photographer took pictures of the ORDINARY and made them EXTRAORDINARY thru his camera lens and your vision. Congratulations and best wishes for your future.” ~Patricia, California
