A New Face

I've been hearing over and over lately that I need to get new headshots done. People who only know me from my online presence complain when they meet me that I don't look anything like my picture.

Hmmm. Is that good or bad? I'm still not sure.

However, the fact that I now wear my hair a lot longer than I used to is a fact I can't deny.

The problem with new photos is...well, I'm older than I was when I had those last ones done. If I could get away with posting a picture of me when I was 25, I'd do it in a heartbeat. Seriously, inside my head, that's still what I look like. Outside? Not so much.

But I caved in this weekend. After shooting over 60 frames, I came up with four that I like. So I'm posting them here and asking for a vote. Which ONE photo should be my new "face" for my online persona?

Choice #1


Choice #2


Choice #3


Choice #4


Leave a comment with your favorite. Okay, I get to make the final decision, so this isn't really a democracy, but I can definitely be swayed.

I like #2 the best. Second pic would be #4.

Any chance you'd want to shoot me? Wait. That didn't come out quite right...

I like #2 and #4 - they have the best smiles in my opinion.

Joyce, I'd be happy to "shoot" you anytime you want. But only with my camera. ;-) And thanks for voting. You, too, Mary.

Leaning toward 1 or 4. Final answer: 1.

Annette said...

Thanks, Fred.

I love #4. That's the true Annette, not someone posing for a picture. All of your essence shines through in that pic.

4 looks the most natural and unposed.

I like #4. But I also like the one one FB of you cuddling with your cat. Maybe that one could be a casual shot?

Annette said...

I've been told I need a "media" page on my website, and I plan to put the second choice AND the picture with Kensi on there. You know...in case a cat rescue agency wants me to give a talk...

#4, hands down! Direct, friendly, comfortable.

#4 and you look gorgeous. Who needs to be 20 to look awesome?

Annette said...

Oh, Rose, you just made my day!!!

#4. Looks like you're ready to sit down and have a great conversation with me.

#4 is my choice, but all are nice.
