Elena Shumilova photographs her children with their pets and the result is so cute and so sweet.
I just discovered a very talented photographer. Elena Shumilova lives with her family in the countryside near Andreapol, west of Moscow, Russia. She began photography in 2012 with the motivation to immortalize moments spent with her two sons, Yaroslav and Vanya.
The surrounding nature offers both a scenery and a unique light that she uses to compose photographs that radiates a real sweetness of life. She enjoys long summer walks to watch her children and capture those privileged moments that always go way too fast.
What makes them so attractive and soothing is a mixture of this very characteristic atmosphere, the presence of children on most images, but also the various animals such as dog, cat, rabbit, duck, horse, etc., for which we feel that these little angels have a real emotional connection. A remarkable work where sometimes we almost feel in a fairy tale.
Here is a personal selection of his most beautiful photos. I must say there are so many that the choice was difficult. Also, I strongly recommend you to see Elena Shumilova’s other photographs on her social networks as Flickr, 500px, Instagram and Facebook, or her Website.
And then don’t hesitate to leave a comment to tell us what you think about her work.
