How Animals React To These 2 Little Boys Is Nothing Short Of Magical. August 01 2014, 1 Comment

 Elena Shumilova  is a mother from from Andreapol, Russia, that has been taking stunning photos of her sons with animals. Now, those photos are making their way around the internet. The photos, hosted on 500px , aren't just cute (although they definitely are). They show a connection between children and animals that, as adults get older, we forget about. It's magical.

Elena began taking pictures of her sons Yaroslav and Vanya in 2012 when she received her first professional camera.

Elena used to sketch and paint, now her medium is photography and her subjects are her sons.


Her boys have always had an affinity for animals...


And the animals have a special connection with them as well.


Children and animals are both innocent. They live in a fantastical world that we adults seem to forget about.
