We told you last year about the success of Alford-based photographer Donna Gray.
In November, she won a prestigious Mumpreneur honour in the Engage category, which recognised the unstinting care and professionalism she brings to her vocation of taking stunning pictures of newly-born babies.
Such has been Donna's success in forging a bond with these little ones that she has gained the nickname "The baby whisperer".
And now she has achieved fresh kudos by gaining the distinction of becoming a "Craftsman" with the Guild of Newborn and Baby Photographers.
Donna this joins a very select group of fewer than ten people in the whole of Britain.
But anybody who visits her Small Prints will quickly realise she has the philosophy that genius is an infinite capacity for taking pains.
Donna told us: “This is an honour, and I think it is also reward for the commitment to training and continuous improvement of my work which I've put in since I started the business.
"It means a huge amount to me to be recognised in this way, especially as I have had such an eventful 12 months.
"I’m a little stunned, to be honest. I started the business on a shoestring, knowing I'd have to juggle being a wife and mother with building the business up, so it has been busy.
"It’s great to have my hard work recognised, not only by my clients, but by national organisations and to have so much recognition is really amazing.
"I would never have imagined this would have happened five years ago."
Business is booming for Donna, but she told me she was determined never to cut any corners. Every picture captures a special moment of new life and that is precious.
She added: "We usually deal with newborns within the first ten days of their lives and our first priority is ensuring the safety of these fragile little people.
"It used to be the case that you had to go to a supermarket or a shopping mall to get a picture of your new baby and that wasn't always a memorable experience.
"But now, we are catering for the little ones, their mums and dads and sometimes their grandparents as well. Everybody is made to feel special.
It's an attitude which is earning big plaudits for small prints.
