Photography Question

looking for info on a specific type of portrait


I have a photo of my daughter at 7 months old where the photographer had setup a black background and had turned her to face the light. The result is, the way the light hits her, it looks as if she's looking into the light of heaven. It's a beautiful shot.
Which brings me to my question...I have seen similar shots in the past like this only with another translucent image inside the main shot, only the other image would be a headshot in a different pose.
Does anyone know what this is called? and how can I create a shot like this?

Thanks, Shannon

  Actually, I don't think those pictures have anything to do with Hurricane Katrina. I see you noted that they were emailed to you and were taken by someone else, so you were just going by what they said.

Hurrican Katrina was an enormous storm, over 50 miles wide. These pictures are of a fairly compact tornado, probably somewhere in the Midwest.
