The surreal children portraits of German photographer Loretta Lux could easily be mistaken for paintings. The quiet settings, serene looks and pastel colors come together to give it this artistic appeal. Not to mention that the too perfect skin gives the models an otherworldly aesthetic that can also be likened to porcelain dolls. Whatever the case may be, it is undeniable that the imagination is let loose with these surreal children portraits.

As though filled with a deep knowledge about the world around them, the subjects in these surreal children portraits are full of mystery. Unsurprisingly, Beautiful Decay notes, "Lux studied painting at Akademie der Bildenden K√ľnste in Munich and uses this influence in her images." Some of her works take up to a year to complete.
