Etheldreda Laing first began taking photos of her daughters when she was 38 years old, using Autochrome, an early color photography process. She processed the photos in a darkroom in her Oxford home and later became known for photos she took of her daughters, Janet and Iris, ages 12 and 7 respectively.

 
Check out these photos of her daughters Laing took in the garden of her Oxford home in 1908.
