Note: This is an unusual "hidden mother" studio photo. The baby's mother would be draped behind holding the baby up for the long 30 second or more exposure in the photographer's studio, quite a feat!
This is a great baby photo. Found in Hampshire County MA, she may also have New England ties. She wears black wool tights and a lace dress, hair parted down the middle, a great kid! One of our favorites! Sepha may be a nickname for Josepha Doolittle.
