Cute and warm photos by Elena Shumilova
Elena Shumilova from Tver province became famous throughout the world photographing her three sons.
In the age of the Internet it is easy to become famous if you have what to show.
Elena takes wonderful pictures. British Daily Mail regularly talks about her new photos, the Americans have made film about her, hundreds of thousands of Russians admire the photos of a young mother.
Lena’s husband is farmer Andrei Dobrohvalov. They live on a farm for seven years. Andrei and his friend came to that place to relax at the weekend. He looked around and fell in love with nature. In the capital he left his business and bought the land. There are a lot of animals on their farm – cows, sheep, geese, chickens, rabbits. They also have a big dog whose name is Misha. He is 12 years old. Misha is one of their sons.
Elena graduated from the Institute of Architecture. At first it was not easy for her to live in the country, but then she found herself in taking photos. She is a self-taught photographer.
Elena has a lot of fans. Her creativity is like the gate to another world. Her works inspire many photographers.
Shumilova doesn’t like competitions. But once she sent her work to the Ad Me Photo Awards 2014 and won the first place.
When I am looking at her photos I can smell the rain, feel the cold breath of autumn and warmth of the animals.
