Supportive Mothers

Oh, I'm sorry--were you looking for a heartwarming post? Because these are pretty creepy:

Okay, I guess old-timey photos of children are eerie, but I don't see what the big d--OH MY GOD IS THAT BABY FLOATING?

"This was a practice where the mother, often disguised or hiding, often under a spread, holds her baby tightly for the photographer to insure a sharply focused image."
- The Hidden Mother

Look again:

It's a bit more adorable when you notice the similarities between these and William Wegman's Weimaraner shots. Oh wait, you find dogs with humans hands frightening as well?
