When I first started doing Newborn Photography, I noticed that when I was doing a normal newborn session, the baby would occasionally let out these huge grins – so infectious and heart melting! Nowadays, I have learned to recognize the little signs that a baby is about to let out a smile and I sit there ready with the camera to catch it!

Vintage photo of a young girl
This image shows a young girl wearing a large dress. Children in this era wore hoop skirts that were similar to the women's fashion. Boys usually wore gathered pants, long socks, and a button up coat. The outfits changed slightly by age. By the time they were considered adults, they wore long pants and top hats.

The Little girl,.
A dead infant on a velvet cushion. The adult lurking in the background was no doubt there to hold the baby's head upright.

The Strangest Tradition of the Victorian Era: Post-Mortem Photography, including a hidden mother. What a strange and creepy custom!
Postmortem photography with hidden mother.
Two very unnerving Victorian photo customs in one: post-mortem, and "hidden mother." Hidden mother photographs would incorporate the child's mother in some way being in the background, usually concealed, and holding the child in place.
memento mori / hidden mother /// Memento mori pictures were so common at that time because they were often the only picture taken of that person. Since the person never had a picture taken during his/her life, it was the only way to keep an image of that person. That is why there are so many memento mori pictures of children."

Nothing like taking pictures of your dead child...
eccentricvictorian: Momento mori.
Not post mortem. If you look at the little girls legs, you'll notice the left one is blurry. Meaning she moved when the photo was taken.

Don't believe this is a Post mortem, the child has moved and woman doesn't appear deceased.
NOT a postmortem photograph, but widely called one in Pinterest. Click on the photo and in a trice you will learn from the source that it is not so.
Victorian Mother Girl in High Chair Daguerreotype Closeup by Mirror Image Gallery, via Flickr
One of the most touching and beautiful post mortem pictures I´ve ever seen. Her nails done, the ring on her finger, the book in her hands, her expression, everything fits to be remembered who she was - a beautiful young lady.
