Usually with these hand coloured portraits they were sent off to a miniature artist with a note re her clothing complexion etc.
As she's wearing black & is holding what may be a prayer book or book of Psalms begs the question who died ?

I had not thought about this photo occurring around a period of grief. Janet was a very good day woman. I have a copy of the Bible she gave to my father's great aunt. However, in 1848, she lost 2 of her grandsons and her son-in-law to dysentery. Do you think this might fit with the photo?

It's quite possible as 1848-50 would fit well with this.

I'm sorry. Those 3 passed away in Sep.1847, but her husband passed away in Oct. 1848. Any thoughts about which of these might be connected to the photo?

It could be either but I suspect it's for her husband. The usual term for mourning was 2 years for a spouse.
It could be this is at the end of the 1st. year as she's wearing a white bonnet. If she stood strictly by convention she would be in all black for the 1st. year.
