If you add a person/group field to your list of contacts, you can set the display to Name(with picture) to show the picture from the user's profile automatically.

There is alos the possibility of adding a hyperlink column to the list to point to an image of the user so it's displayed inline.

Another alternative is to just upload the image of the user as an attachment to the contact.
