And Here is Baby Charlotte

This CDV was the inspiration for Charlotte as a child in my new paranormal romance SEE ME which is available now at Leap of Faith Publishing.

 I fell in love with this beautiful little girl. This photo was purchased from an online seller.

An original 1860s carte de visite of a little girl in a chair with her head on her palm. Her photo is surrounded by flowers.

I am not sure if this unusual composition indicates a memorial / remembrance photo or not.

There has been some very light original tinting added. Her cheeks are light pink and the flowers have hints of green and yellow.

The photographers were a husband and wife team. The backmark on this photo reads:

Mr. & Mrs. Cornell
