Fairy-Tale Scenes With REAL Animals

When Moscow-based photographer Darya Kondratyeva isn’t snapping family, maternity or baby photos, she creates enchanting photos that seem like re-interpretations of old fairytales or legends. The models in her photos seem like they could be witches, princesses or forest spirits.
Aside from her models, trained animals feature heavily in Kondratyeva’s fantasy photography as well. Each one seems like it might open its mouth and whisper a wise secret into the model’s ear.

Meet Landon

“Please meet Landon. His dad, Marine LCPL Carpenter, made the ultimate sacrifice while serving with 3/8 in Afghanistan in 2011, a month before his son Landon was born. Being a former Marine and a father this photo really touched me and I wanted to share it with the viewers of my website. Special Thanks to Landon’s mother and Inara Studios for permission to share such a special picture on my site. Never forget the price of freedom.”
