The relationship between a young child and an animal is typically based upon pure innocence. With no experience to muddy the waters, neither the child nor the animal has pre-established ideas or fears that might negatively impact their bond. The easy nature of this relationship is something that professional photographer Elena Karneeva has managed to capture in her photos again and again.
Specializing in children and family photography, Karneeva is based out of Moscow and is most well known for her work with children and animals. In each of these images, it is quite clear that both the children and animals are comfortable and are posing together as friends. These images of beautiful, rural settings are reminiscent of another Russian photographer, Elena Shumilova.
