Elena Shumilova's photography captures her precious toddler sons romping around their farm with a bevy of adorable animals including dogs, cats, rabbits and ducklings. Not only is the landscape beautiful, the bond that her sons share with their furry companions is truly heart-warming.

The sense of play, adventure and genuine friendship comes across in each photograph; this, combined with the picturesque quality of the rural landscape, makes for an incredibly charming, endearing series.

Shumilova discusses her process, which involves harnessing and employing natural light. She says, "When shooting I prefer to use natural light – both inside and outside. I love all sorts of light conditions – street lights, candle light, fog, smoke, rain and snow – everything that gives visual and emotional depth to the image."
