They say that the most difficult models to work with are babies and animals, but you’d never guess the latter when looking through 17-year-old photographer Jessica Trinh’s portfolio. The teen’s collection of beautifully lit photos feature variations of “cute” and “adorable” through the lovable faces of her two dogs—a Golden Retriever named Chuppy and an Australian Shepherd named Daisy.
Equipped with her Canon 7D, Trinh captures some truly delightful shots of her furry, photogenic friends. One can only imagine the difficulty in getting that precise moment of explicit joy that shines across each of those innocent faces. Perhaps a split-second before the canines shift gears and decide to run off in the opposite direction. Whatever her method is for capturing these moments, we’re grateful. Trinh’s ongoing series of images of her dogs are ones to go back and look at on a day that feels ruff rough.
