A budding snapper is celebrating after scooping second prize in an international dog photography competition.
Sienna Wemyss, of Reed Road, Dagenham, took the pic on her iPhone as pet Whippet pup Dallas sat on the sofa pining for his dinner.
The 11-year-old George Carey Primary school pupil then sent the portrait length photo to dog show organisation The Kennel Club for its annual search for the best dog photographers.
On the news, proud mum Sally Millward said: “Sienna was overjoyed, absolutely over the moon. She couldn’t believe it.”
Talented Sienna’s photo was one of 10,000 sent in from 70 countries and entered in the Young Pup Photographer category.
The shot is now on display at The Kennel Club’s Mayfair art gallery with copies on sale. The delighted youngster, who wants to be a fashion designer when she grows up, will pick up her award at a ceremony in October.
