Sadly, my little Tia lost her fight. This is one of the last photos I ever took of her, and it’s one of my favourites.

Tia is my own dog. She is my inspiration. You’ll see lots of images of her, she’s very patient and will stand still while I’m trying to work out the settings on my camera!

She’s 12 years old now, and very sadly, she is terminally ill. She still has a very cheeky side which I try and capture in her photos. Here she is looking very pleased with herself, if you look near her mouth you can see what she’s been eating – dirty dog!

And the other things she loves in life … chilling

Or being in water (or mud!)

Tia’s doing well at the moment so we had a trip to Chesterton Windmill so she could pose!
