“Hidden Mother” was a 19th century portrait trend where mothers, who were basically dressed a “ghost,” would hold their young children still while being photographed. The end result was, well… haunting and creepy.

A Victorian "hidden mother' memento mori / post mortem photo / photograph. In the Victorian Era, women holding infants were often covered; because the photograph is meant to be cropped to show only the infant.
