This cabinet card portrait features a very cute baby wearing a long gown. It is likely that this is a christening photograph. This wonderful image was taken by August Rino and it is no small accomplishment. Taking photographs of children during the cabinet card era was quite difficult. Cooperation and good poses did not come easily. Rino pursued his photography career in Chicago between 1858 and 1860. He continued has career in St. Louis between 1860 and 1875. This cabinet card is from his St. Louis studio. To see other images by this photographer, click on the category “Photographer: Rino”.
