Rebecca Spencer from Milton Keynes first picked up a camera 7 years ago to photograph her baby son Theo - now she has been named one of the top ten photographers of the year in an international competition.
The Guild of Professional Photographers say her achievement, beating thousands of more experienced competitors, is exceptional.
Rebecca who has worked in the NHS for 20 years has no plan to make photography a career but, as she explains in her own words in the video below, she hopes her story inspires other parents to capture precious memories of their children's childhoods.
