A Beautiful Family Album: Mum Takes Adorable Photos Of Her Kids And Their Pets

We’ve seen a lot of adorable baby and animal images of late, but this collection, without a doubt, have won us over. We recommend you have a good look through them – but we warn you, there will be some serious ‘we have to get a dog/cat/duckling’ thoughts going on

A Russian mother has released an incredible set of pics of her young children with their farm animals. And they’re not your average family album snaps, oh no – Elena Shumilova is clearly a whizz with a camera. The artist’s photos are simply breath taking and make us wish we knew a thing or two about white balances and apertures…

Featuring Elena’s two boys and their oh-so-cute dogs, cat, ducklings and rabbits, you won’t be able to tear your eyes away from the adorability of it all – and how much her sons love their pets.

‘I largely trust my intuition and inspiration when I compose photos,’ Elena explained to arts and design magazine BoredPanda.  ‘I get inspired mainly by my desire to express something I feel, though I usually cannot tell exactly what that is.’

The mum-of-two also explained that she loves using natural light – which definitely helped make these snaps look even more magical.
