Was reading up on some of the photography that was going on during the Spiritualist moment and came across this photo. This wasn't a part of that movement but rather the way that photographers did portraits of babies or young children back in the day. Rather than leaning a baby against a backdrop or sitting them on a chair, the photographer would have an assistant or family member drape themselves in black and then hold the child. Makes for a very creepy, yet, very cool photo. I will surely being doing this soon!
