'Her eyes don't like bright light, but, despite this, pictures came out brilliantly. I love them.'
Mother Elena said Nariyana is the only albino in her and husband Albert's families.
'We have already got many offers from modelling and advertising agencies but I don't want her to work yet,' she said.
