This is the set by “project photographers and makeup artists”  Alexandrs Lab (sic) that gets the attention (for obvious reasons) – but they have (it has?) done other sessions with the same Russian model, twelve-year-old Diana Panchenko:

…….where she passes, without a blink, from sweetly smiling young girl to sultry, brooding…um, young girl.

There is, you won’t be surprised to read, a little mystery even here. The reason why there’s no link attached to “Alexandrs Lab” is that the home site address  – simply alexandrslab.com –  doesn’t work anymore, and I can’t find anything in all the obvious places: Vk.com (they/it are/is presumably Russian), Facebook, Instagram or even Twitter. Fashion Kids still credits them as the photographer for relevant images, logically, but with no through linking that works. One possibility is that they seem to always use the same stylist (with a similar first name): Alexandra Natalia Astanina – and the WordPress blog Thflg has her as the actual photographer for their shots of Diana – whether mistaking the accreditation in Russian, or having information I haven’t come across, I don’t know. And naturally she remains anonymous as well….

Whatever the truth of it is, they do (can I use “she does”?) see Diana also as that stock portrait figure – the pretty innocent maiden, a little more suitably for her age:

……and as a final antidote to the more sophisticated shots of her, have a look at the following YouTube video – you couldn’t imagine a more normal little girl messing about in her back garden:
