Donna Gray selected among Britain's top 100 'Mumpreneurs'

Donna Gray selected among Britain's top 100 'Mumpreneurs'

Donna Gray's business might be called Small Prints.

But there is nothing diminutive about the ambitions or achievements of this mother-of-six from Alford in Aberdeenshire.

Her expertise and empathy in photographing newborns has earned her the title of the "Baby Whisperer".

And Donna has just this week been selected as one of Britain's top 100 Mumpreneurs by the online magazine, which celebrates women making a positive contribution to UK life.

It's the latest accolade to come her way during her development as one of the country's leading photographers.

And she talked to STV about her hectic schedule when we hooked up on Friday.

Donna said: "Life is busy at the moment, but there's no point twiddling your thumbs when you have six hungry terrors to feed.

"To be listed in the top 100 Mumpreneurs in the UK is really amazing, because it means I am alongside many inspirational businesses run by hard-working parents across the country.

"I never thought things would move so quickly, but I'm certainly not complaining about that.

"I met a record number of babies in the spring and summer this year and I am close to being fully booked until the end of 2015."

Donna's business thrives on her attention to detail and the energy she puts in.

Her meticulous care of her charges has seen her gain many coveted awards and she has become a Craftsman with the Guild of Photographers.

But she also loves what she is doing, which helps explain her all-pervading joie de vivre.

She said: "I'm in my element meeting newborns and their families and giving them a terrific studio experience is what I love to do, because we have had many families revisiting with second or subsequent babies which is always a good sign.

"The amazing reviews are continuing to roll into the visitors book and it is truly gratifying."
