There's just something special about child and animal photography. This series captures that certain je-ne-sais-quoi that usually comes with featuring those two subjects together.

A Russian mother named Elena Shumilova has taken amazing pictures of her son and animals in a snowy background, which makes them look like they belong as a promo poster for the Polar Express. The photos use natural lighting with some really saturated colors to make for a great contrast.

The theme seems to be the emotion tied into the relationship with children and their pets and the innocence of it all and this photo series captures that perfectly without it beating you over the head with the moral. The landscapes don't even look real with how cinematic they appear and they easily evoke the emotion that they're looking for.
