Georgia photographers often depicted mothers and children, as well as mothers and fathers with their children. Below are some favorite poses from my collection. All but one have never been posted on Hunting and Gathering.
Atlanta Photo Co., Atlanta, GA; Dora Minor and her child, ca. 1888 cabinet card; collection E. Lee Eltzroth
Minor Studio, East Point, GA; an outdoor portrait of a mother and her several children, ca. 1917; collection E. Lee Eltzroth
Alfa Lomax, Atlanta, GA.: portrait of parents and their child, ca. 1922; collection E. Lee Eltzroth
I love the cootie garages on the gl 4th from left in the 1917 group portrait. NOW SHE DOES MAKE HERSELF STND OUT. Happy mother’s day. Frances

I had never heard that term for that strange “do” — must look it up!
This was quickest post ever, and left out a beautiful one, but saving that for a more detailed post.
