the protocols used by libgnokii deal with binary or hex data, not with
a nicely formatted vCards (the fact that you can import and export
contacts and call details as vCards is just a limited translation
layer provided by the library)

adding support for photos might even be possible over FBUS (libgnokii
prints a debug message when it receives such an "image block" from the
phone), but it isn't straightforward and time would be better spent in
other ways, eg implementing an OBEX driver

try with OBEX, eg by sending a file containing your vCard via Bluetooth
