Children and animals are a double dose of cuteness. Their friendship is so sweet and innocent that you can’t help but swoon every time you see them together. Photographer Andrea Martin celebrates the joy that comes from these duets in these snaps of children with her baby animals.
Each adorable scene features a small child and a similarly sized creature as they cuddle up in the countryside setting, creating beautiful portraits that not only show their relationship but also their idyllic surroundings.
A mother of four who also helps with livestock, Martin sees the magic that comes from children interacting with ducks, goats, puppies, and kittens. With this insight, she understands how to embrace the playfulness of children by allowing her subjects to play in giant puddles and roll on the ground.
The images, while masterfully composed, don’t take themselves too seriously; in doing so, they show just how adept Martin is at knowing the perfect moment to shoot. These sweet photos effortlessly convey the joy, innocence and beauty of nature, children, and animals — all at the same time.
