Käsebier started formal arts training at the Pratt Institute in the late 19th Century and opened her successful portrait studio in 1897. She was a devoted follower of the Pictorialist style, which sought acceptance of photography as a fine art, and she became celebrated for her photographic depictions of motherhood and domestic scenes. A founding member of the Photo-Secessionist group along with photographers such as Alfred Stieglitz and Clarence White, Käsebier's work appeared in many photographic publications and exhibitions of the period
