Photographer, Photoshop wizard, and creepy pastry queen Christine H McConnell is lighting up Reddit with a series of photos in which she digitally replicated family portraits going back two hundred years on her maternal side.

In the series, McConnell shows her ancestor on the left side, and a meticulously crafted digital image of herself as that ancestor on the right. We're partial to the side by side with her mom in the awesome '80s red dress, and the hilariously unexpected horse shot as her daughter Trigger (birthdate TBD). You can see the photographer as she imagines herself to look in 1981, when she was born. We also highly recommend following McConnell's addictive Instagram feed.
