Default Old photo question

A friend of mine shared this on Farcebook.

She said it's of her Great-great Grandparents.

The question posed is; is there a significance to them posing with their palms up?
Are they holding something?

No one seems to know, not even her parents.
Google doesn't have any answers.

I believe it has to do with prayer. One palm is down, the other is up.

Here's a link that describes it nicely.

The "palms up" action is commonplace around here.

I see it every time we pass an Amish buggy
