Vintage photo: mother and son

This is, I think, a delightful photo which manages to be both informal and overdressed at the same time. Edwardian obviously, presumably mother and son and possibly by an amateur photographer in the family who could only get enough light for the indoor portrait by posing the pair looking out of a window.

I like portraits illuminated by the light through a window. Whether it is the only location where one gets sufficient light is immaterial.
