…..these two have got to be twins – unlikely as it seems at first glance – since they’ve got the same mother and were both born in 2010. Their names are Mia and Nikol Nesterenko, and they’re from that unlikely hive of exquisite girls’ portraiture, Krasnodar in the southern extremes of Russia. The factor that enables this hotspot is one photographer – Iren Stramaus, whom I’ve posted on before: here and (much more recently) here, with reference to Kira Yanenko – but Iren seems to have a posse of Moscow-based Shtorm Models‘, um, models to call on.

This session is another where an Instagram video is useful for setting the scene:

…..and it links to the video’s director, Victoria Bugrova.

As often with Iren, there’s a lot of unexceptional stuff – and then she pops in something unexpected: here the two girls (Mia’s the blonder one who hardly looks five, let alone seven) seem to be wearing just big girls’ panties and semi-transparent…….nighties? Wedding dresses? Anyway, layered chiffon extravaganzas that I’m sure you can’t buy in the shops… The girls have more of the set on their two Instagram feeds:

….her Instagram username is @mia_nesterenko2010  – is it really possible she’s six or even seven? Anyway, those eyes – Anna Pavaga‘s agents must be quivering in their gold-lined daschas…

Both girls were also given a bts shot each:

15624104_140549689765467_6990714720609107968_n

……and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the studio didn’t reuse the scenery for clients’ daughters in paid “Princess” sessions….

Iren did another set with Mia and Nikol in similar (but not transparent) dresses:

….one with more of a lacy, Victorian vibe:

….if the eyes are a mirror to the soul, then she must be the seven-year-old Russian version of Aretha Franklin

Miscellaneous (and you can believe they’re sisters a bit more easily after seeing Nikol’s eyes in the first portrait):

….they’ve got a baby brother, and the usual ex-model mother (I’m presuming):

….and finally here’s the queen of romance with a twist, Iren:
