Donside photographer and mother of six, Donna Gray, has had a landmark week after making a top regional list and winning a prestigious award.

The Aberdeenshire baby photographer, who runs Small Prints Photography in Alford, was named in the Aberdeen 40 under 40 list this week, before going on to scoop a top award from networking organisation Mumpreneur UK.

Donna was named as the winner of the Engage category at a lavish event on Saturday, November 8.

To add lustre to an already enviable week, Donna was named in influential photographer Mark Cleghorn’s Top Five once again.

Donna has already had many images published in The Photographer Academy’s yearbook.

Running her own business and being mother to her six children, aged between two and 11, is more than a full time job, and Donna is justifiably pleased she has been recognised for her hard work.

She said: “I’m a little stunned really. I started the business on a shoestring, knowing I’d have to juggle being a wife and mother with building the business up.

“To have so much recognition all at once is really amazing.”
