More Photos

Just so you can see what other photos I had to choose from, regarding my headshot post… (The final pick can be seen here, or to the right in my profile picture. These are others in the set.)

(This was my other favorite, but the lighting wasn’t as good. My grin is more indicative of my personality, though. The photo we chose has me looking more wistful and less smiley.)

Other faves include:

I recently had a photo shoot for a local glossy magazine where I’m on staff. I loved the way the photo came out, and I got permission to use it on my site, but I almost think it looks a little bit like a school photo, especially because the goofy grin I’m making makes me look like a teenager. Okay, you want a peek?

    I can’t get over how long your hair has grown! I think the last one (the glossy mag one) looks very professional. 🙂

  2. Have to agree with Pattie. The professional lighting really perks up your appearance. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    I love the last one. I see what you mean about it looking like a school photo, but it really focuses on your face/eyes and there are no other distractions, so (to me) it really “pops” more than the others.

    Of the outdoor shots, I actually like the one you chose the best – I think it’s a bit more engaging than the other shots. Plus I like the colors better. (Though I’m sure that’s something you can play with…?)

    Love the outdoors ones, but the glossy is soooo professional looking, like Pattie said. I’m so jealous you have such a profession pic =)

  5. They’re all so nice and natural looking, and they really bring out the color of your eyes. It’s been ages since I’ve had a professional photo shoot! Someday, when that book contract comes through, I’ll have a reason to splurge. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I just love all of those! You look absolutely beautiful! Almost makes me want to get some done…once I lose my chubby preggo face!

    Love the photos, you look fabulous! I do have the agree that eyes seem to pop out of the last photo, but I love the outdoor shots. the maroon color your top really brings out your facial features.
