It's Xenia and Irina with Maria Feodorovna; maybe the baby is Irina's daughter?  :-\

It's her daughter Xenia on the far right. I'm guessing the others are Xenia's daughter Irina and her daughter? A four generations photo.

yes, the photo is of the Dowager Empress Maria Fyodorevna, her daughter Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna, her granddaughter Princess Irina Alexandrovna Yusupova, and her great-granddaughter Princess Irina Felixovna Yusupova - four generations.  the photo was taken in either the spring-summer of 1915 (as Princess Irina Felixovna was born in March that year). either at Ai-Todor in the Crimea (estate of Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich, Xenia's husband) or at one of the many Imeprial dachas at Peterhof near the Baltic Sea.

Wonderful! It's from that recent exhibit in Mossow. Undoubtedly taken around the same time of the Tatiana winking photo with Paul, Olga and Maria. It's shows that Olga was interested in Paul for years....not just  in 1913. Thanks for posting!

These two are new to me, but it is a pity they have such a big watermark =(

Nicholas and Alix in September 1917 in Tobolsk:



Maria and Anastasia in 1915 (photograph apparently coloured by Anastasia):





The photo of Nicholas and Alexandra seated on the balcony at Tobolsk is heart-wrenching.  I'd seen the doctored photo of Alexandra, Olga & Tatiana in this same place with white background, then a clearer undoctored version showing exactly where the picture was taken, and now this.  I'd not seen this photo.  In all three, Alexandra looks wistful and crushed.  It's clear that more than one photo was taken here that day.  I wonder if any more exist.

In all three, Alexandra looks wistful and crushed.   
and amazingly gaunt. Her cheek bones stand out more than I've seen else where
