You'll Never See Anything As Adorable As These Little Kids With Big Dogs

So doggone precious.

A few years ago, some of Seliverstoff's friends asked him to take photos of their daughter Alice in a park. They had their Great Dane, Sean, with them, so they decided to incorporate him into the photos. After seeing the results, Seliverstoff knew he was onto something special.


He did another shoot with a child and big dogs, and told BuzzFeed News that he was "deeply touched" by the work. That was four years ago — and he's been a dog photographer ever since.

All of the photos are taken in St. Petersburg, and the city's extensive parks and colder climate help create some spectacular shots.

Seliverstoff says that most of the subjects in his photos are either children or grandchildren of people in his friend circle. He noted that it's rare for people to acquire big dogs while they have young kids, so most of these dogs have been with the families before they had children.


The overall message he's trying to get across, he said, is simple: "Love for dogs and children makes people kinder."
