Absolutely stunning images from Russian photographer, Elena Shumilova.  There is so much more of her breathtaking work in her portfolio. Her stunning images of her sons and their menagerie of pets–as ridiculously gorgeous as their human family–are simply magical and not even the slightest bit twee (not that there’s anything wrong with twee). Just can’t get enough. Hurry over and see her work at her flickr.
