New Headshots--Opinions, Please!


Okay, so, my friend French Jon (yes, that is what we all call him) recently took new author photos for me. I'm SUPER EXCITED because normally I'm not photogenic at all, but I really think these came out fantabulously. You can chalk it up to Jon's genius...and to the fact that my New Year's resolution was to "learn to take better pictures". (Well, that was one of them. The other one was to "see more movies." Low expectations, people, low expectations.)

Anyway, fun fact about French Jon: he is appearing on The City this season, along with Whitney Port, and in a few weeks he's having a big gallery show and might be featured in a new episode! Yes...he is a legend.

Okay but BACK TO ME. Here are the headshots--do you guys have any opinions about which ones I should use? If so, I'd LOVE TO HEAR THEM. From top, let's call 'em 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. (And btw, thank you to everyone who already commented on these on facebook--you're so nice!)

Happy Tuesday, my pretties.

I love them all! They're so beautiful.
I love the warmth of your face, your eyes. You are indeed photogenic. :]

Karen said...

All great pics - 1 or 5 if your going for more of a fun look. 2-4 if you want the more "serious author" look :-)

Catie S (Book Bound) said...

I like #2 the best.

Raíla said...

You're gorgeous! I liked the #4 and the #1 the best!

I think two works better for you in the author capacity but I think all of them are lovely.

Daniel and I vote for #4!

Iffath♥Ahmed said...

1,2 and 3 are really nice, and I like #2 the best.
They all look good though!

They're all so great. # 2 is the best though, especially for a book jacket.

DJ's Life in Fiction said...

They all look great! #1 and #4 are my favorite, though. :)

jessjordan said...

Well they're all hawwwt. (Damn, girl! I need to kidnap French Jon.) But if we're talking like, book jacket pics, I'd go with 3 or 4 (3 is my favorite, I think)--they look like YOU, without trying to hard. (1 and 5 are a little modely, in my humblest opinion.)

(I love your resolutions. Cracked my ass up.)

Michelle said...

These are beautiful and you look sooo pretty in them! My favourites are #'s 1 & 5.

Erica said...

They're all fantastic, but I personally like 1,2, and 5 best. I think 5 is my favorite :)

Jessy said...

I like 5, 3 and 1. I think I like 5 the most though.

LovesSam said...

I like number four, in fact, I love number four. These are so good!

Malbebe said...

They are all pretty pictures. Its hard to choose just one. Haha, sorry I'm no help.

I Heart Book Gossip said...

I like the first and the second one. The second one is more serious than the first one. And the first one makes you look fun and sassy :)

Stephanie said...

Check you out all supermodel-like. Yowza! I like 2 or 5.

Erika said...

I like #1

Daisy Whitney said...

Last one, you gorgeous thing!

Kate at Read This Book! said...

I love the last one! :D

Hannah S said...

Although all the head-shots are lovely, I especially like #'s 3 and 5.
I like five, well, just because. However, if this is intended to go on the back of your book, I think number three would work best. It represents you, or from what I know of you at least. I only have your book to go by...
Love, Hannah

P.s. New fan right here!
P.p.s. I'm not shitting you when I say you look model pretty!

madeleinerex.com said...

I like the first and last. :D

deltay said...

They all look great :) #2 and #4 are particularly nice though!

Dani said...

I think that 2 and 5 would be the best one, especially for a book jacket. Although no doubt all of them are gawrrrrrjus. :)

Oh, I love The City. Looking forward to seeing French Jon in an episode!

Maggie said...

I am so jealous right now. Not only are you a talented and awesome author, you're also insanely pretty. *facepalm*

Haha, I lovelovelove the first one, but the last makes a close second. :)
