“We have had gold and silver awards from the Guild of Professional Photographers before.”

Mr Taylor and Ms Bryant have been together since their school days, and have three children of their own.

Their business specialises in newborn, baby and family photographs.

He said:“Noah, who is in the winning photograph, was nine days-old. Little ones are constantly changing.”

Ms Bryant had taken the photographs, he said, and he had edited the images of the baby and pet dog, which had been taken separately, to produce the winning image.

Chloe Skipping, Noah’s mum, said it was a lovely photograph, “I am thrilled it has won.”

The couple are now assisted by trainee Sheeren Thompson at Kersey Mill studio.

She said: “I have two children of my own, and I get to cuddle babies here. It is lovely.

“When parents see the images they often cry; and I have to wipe a tear away myself.”

Specialising in baby pictures had been a good choice, added Brendan. “They are not babies for long, and parents want to capture those memories.

“The business has been growing too. We now have franchises in Biggleswade, in Folkestone, Kent and new one in Havant, Hampshire.”
