Help me choose my author photo!

Last Saturday, I met Vania in Bryant Park and she took a series of amazing portraits of me.  Which one should I choose as my author photo?  So far, my twitter peeps seem to prefer #9.  What do you think?

I like both 7 and 9! Good luck with the picks!

I like #2!

Emy Shin said...

My favorite pose -- by far -- is #4.

However, I love the slightly bluer/darker coloring and contrast in #1 and #9. It looks more professional. Perhaps you can photoshop the coloring in #4 slightly to mimic #1 & #9?

However, I think they're all great. You look really gorgeous in all of them. :)

Braiden said...

I like #4 because I think you look natural and happy. That's just my opinion though. It matters most which one you like the most.

Chachic said...

I like 4 or 9. :)

Nyra said...

I like 4, look so pretty amile in that one :)

Sab H. said...

I say number 1. I actually like the ones with glasses a lot, you look really sweet, but since I think of you and think 'dystopia', number one is the one where you look more bad-ass :P

Jessica Secret said...

4's my favorite, but 9 is also very good.

Amy L. Campbell said...

Number 2!

Nicole said...

I'm a fan of #6.

But ignore me, I'm weird. :)

#4 all the way--though they're all lovely!

#2 feels friendly, approachable, with very pretty tones. I also like #9, which feels a bit more serious but in a professional way.
You're pretty! :)

Reeder Reads said...

I vote for #4!!!

Mary De Bastos said...

#4 for sure!!!

Amanda said...

You look great in all of them, but I have to agree with your Twitter peeps. #9 is my fave, too!

I like 5 better than 9, but 4 is my favorite, hopefully it can be cropped and made closer up. Love Dad.

Sabrina said...

#4 is my favourite because in this pic you look happy and relaxed.

Sandy Jay said...

I like #4.

TERI REES WANG said...

Are you kidding?!... it's all about the 1st one.
It is soft, and still insightful. Done.
Cheers!

TERI REES WANG said...

P.S. The Twitter peeps prefer #9... because it's the only one the reads bigger and bolder in a tiny phone pic.

Tez Miller said...

4 or 6 - I like smiles :-)

Bee said...

It would have to be a toss-up between #3 and #4. I like both.

sRy_ said...

#9 :)

Pam (@iwriteinbooks) said...

Wow, I like them all but I think I like 4 and 7 for author photos. Fun!

Sarah Laurence said...

It depends on the tone of your book:
4 if you want to be approachable, youthful and funny
9 if you want to be serious, dystopian and professional. You could also warm up the skin tone in 9 via Photoshop.

Miss Bookiverse said...

I like 6 :)

Beth Kephart said...

In 4 you seem sweetest and most approachable. In 9 most like a seasoned pro. I just went through this with my own author photo and at the end of the day I counted the precise same number of votes for each of my three options. You will have to go, in the end, with what you love most.

Beth F said...

I like 6 (sassy!) and 7 the most.

I kind of think the steps in the background are a bit distracting in 9 and 1.
