Had to look.

That camera is $3600 at Amazon.

Amazing quality to those pictures though.

Great photos. She does know how to use light properly. I like the old fashioned sled! Boy are so cute! I can see why she is taking pics of them.

The lady is a helluva photographer.

Suspect she could do almost as well with an old Instamatic. With all of this, it is the picture taker, not the camera.

Perhaps in a past life. ...I had babies in rural USA and that was probably better, but I'm not much of a photographer.

"Beautiful pics with a touch of photoshop."

Yes, take nothing away from her, except the impression that she is a novice. I suspect she used a Lensbaby for the "Lomography" effect, a style any Russian would be well familiar with, and that she used something beside than the camera's built in flash. Her separation of her subject from the background by her control of depth of field tells me she used more than a kit lens. My guess is that we are looking at a 50mm prime at f1.4 or maybe even f1.2.

Nice but in these days of Photoshop, you wonder if these are the actual images, or Photoshop enhanced?

While the pictures are indeed beautiful, I saw an underlying sense of depression in them.....But then again, that’s what life in Russia is.

Does it matter?

Only in a technical sense. If it is pure photography, then others can learn to take pictures of similar quality. If it's a combination of photography and Photoshop, then photographers know that no camera is capable of taking such images.
