Moscow-based photographer Katerina Plotnikova consistently produces gorgeous portraits of young women cradling exotic animals as if they're pets. Since we last shared her images that featured the likes of giraffes, elephants, and elk, she's created more stunning photos. Beautiful figures donning flowing dresses cuddle with wild creatures in picturesque locales.
Recently, Plotnikova has leaned into the winter weather and shot some of her photos in the snow. Subjects wear long, white dresses and nestle against foxes, bears, and wolves. Sometimes, they're without their furry companions and pose alone against stunning backdrops. Plotnikova still adds a touch of magic to these pictures by creatively including flashes of snow. And in one warmer-weather photo, she's constructed a small house gorgeously composed of moss and flowers.
If you're wondering how Plotnikova crafts these images, then you're in luck. She has an active Facebook page and shares behind-the-scenes photos, like a bear “hi-fiving” one of the models.
