20-year-old Candice Sedighan was recently flown out by Yahoo! (the parent of Flickr) to New York City to do a short interview about her incredibly sweet photography. A few days ago, Flickr posted that interview on their blog, sharing the behind-the-scenes story about the golden-haired subject that’s in most of her shots. Like Jessica Trinh’s photos, Sedighan’s feature a very happy and photogenic golden retriever. Surrounded by bubbles, autumn leaves and butterflies, 10-year-old Champ seems to be truly living the good life.
“I really like to capture the true essence with dogs, which is that they’re always so happy,” the college student told Flickr. “The time Champ and I spend together, he’s just always beaming with happiness and you can really see that through my photos.”
Sedighan claims that the near unbelievable photo of Champ with a butterfly on his nose is not the result of Photoshop but instead of “an extraordinary trained model,” her very own Champ. Though we can’t get enough of those perfectly timed shots, the ones that we love the most are the ones where Champ looks like he’s smiling. Is it just us or is his happiness, and overall love of life, infectious?

Today we feature 17-year-old Jessica Trinh, she is an aspiring photographer with incredible natural instincts. Jessica is an up and coming talent who’s photography has been generating a lot of buzz online with her creativity and polished style. Many of her photos use her pets as subjects and the creative ways she finds to capture their personality demonstrates a talent beyond her years. Her two main photo subjects are her two dogs: a Golden Retriever named Chuppy and an Australian Shepherd named Daisy. Over the past few years, Trinh has captured hundreds of beautiful and creative portraits of her furry friends, aided by her keen eye for spotting gorgeous lighting and happy expressions. We dare you not to smile as you look through the following images…
On her passion for photography Jessica remarks:“Ever since I set my hands on a camera, I knew I had unlocked a new dimension. One where you can expand your imagination and run for endless miles. Photography makes you look at things differently. You notice rain drops and the way the sun kisses the Earth. You breath in every moment of your life. You love to live and live to love. There is no time to waste because there is an urgency to capture each loving gesture, smile, and laugh in both humans and animals. Then every photograph becomes timeless and you smile, knowing that you hold a few split seconds in your hands. I live in a box called a camera with the lens as my window and everyday I sit on my couch watching the world outside through a different perspective. No worries, my dogs are right beside me looking at it the same way.”
