Then you’ll fall for the awesome, creative and heartwarming snapshots Jessica Trinh, 18, takes of her dogs Chuppy and Daisy. Jessica first got behind the lens of a camera at the age of 13, and has since been on a mission to make a statement in pet photography. She launched Project Let It Rain Love, a series of photos featuring shelter dogs that was inspired by Daisy, whom her family rescued. On her website she explains, “I hope this project enlightens everyone on the story of a shelter dog and not only make people think twice about giving up a dog, but give these beautiful shelter dogs a chance for a new home with love."

You can see Jessica’s photos on her websiteFacebook page, or flicker. And if you’re adding a furry friend to your family, take the message of Jessica’s project to heart and consider adopting one from a local shelter! It's the cool girl thing to do.
