Early image of a woman with a boy on her lap.
The woman is wearing an off shoulder dress, a large broche and
a beautiful necklace. She's wearing a large bow or veil in her hair.
The light source was directly over them, casting shadows on their eyes.
The backdrop is a simple white curtain and they're slightly out of focus.
