Jade, 24, said: “Photography has always been a part of life as my Grandad’s a professional photographer, however, my passion for photography began a few years ago when I realised how important it is to capture memories and life’s important moments.

“It was only 5 weeks ago I decided to buy my first digital camera - combining my two passions; photography and dogs. I thought my dog Daisy, playing in the garden would be the perfect subject to practice on, and thankfully this photo really brings out her personality”.
