Photographer Elena Shumilova show the powerful bond between children and their pets
For many people, a pet can be their most loyal companion – a trusted soul-mate with whom they experience the highs and lows of life.
Now, photographer Elena Shumilova has captured the inseparable bond that exists between pets and their owners in a heart-warming selection of pictures.
They capture children and their pets at various moments in every-day life in Moscow and Andreapol, Russia.
Children are pictured playfully chasing their pets in a woodland, gazing out of a frosty, steamed up window before bed and finally snuggling up with their pets as they doze off.
