Mother’s Heartwarming Photos of Sons with Farm Animals

Russian photographer and mother of two boys Elena Shumilova captures heartwarming images of her sons interacting with various animals on their farm, including dogs, rabbits, cats, and ducklings. She manages to transport the viewer into a fairy tale-like world with her photos of these little guys and their furry, feathered, and fluffy companions in the beautiful, rural landscape.

The presence of the two innocent, little boys makes the beautifully cinematic landscapes all the more enchanting. Whether the image is out on a dirt road, in a wintry forest, a lush field, or just indoors, Shumilova catches the light perfectly as it highlights each of the boys. She says, “When shooting I prefer to use natural light – both inside and outside. I love all sorts of light conditions – street lights, candle light, fog, smoke, rain and snow – everything that gives visual and emotional depth to the image.”

UPDATE: We’re overjoyed to announce that Elena’s gorgeous photos of her boys are one of 25 photo stories featured in our new book For Love, published by Chronicle Books! The official release date is March 15, 2016, and the book is currently available to pre-order at AmazonBarnes and Noble, and Indie Bound.
