Photography Hellllllp!

Hi, all!

So I need some help. What with attending NYCC in two weeks, they’re putting together some kind of packet on me with helpful, fancy information in it like who I am (debatable), what I’ve done (apparently writing a book is a thing that is worthy of note), and a picture.

Except…um, I don’t photograph well. The minute I learned how to work a camera, I deliberately placed myself on the other side, which means I have loads of pictures of family and friends, and about 10 pictures of me. And…well, you’ll see the problem.

So here are the candidates I need. My publicist didn’t say it had to be professional (thank God; my senior photos would be kind of embarrassing at this point). She just said it needs to be a solo shot (no cropping out friends) and clear. So I have gone on my phone and gathered a beautiful collection, and I would really appreciate it if you could help me vote.

#1 – A lovely establishing picture of me “helping” my sister with her wedding accessories. Is it my fault that a bracket turned sideways makes a bitchin’ ’stache? I DID NOT THINK SO.
#2 – Obligatory birthday dinner picture. The bib says a lot about me, I feel this could come in handy in the publishing world.
#3 – Really revealing my geek side. Plus, my haircut was really kind of awesome at that point. I need a haircut.

#4 – This one captures the inner soul of the artist through the outward use of really hot sand.

#5 – Authors should develop the necessary ability to squint mysteriously into the horizon and be so metal everybody around them is jealous. I had the best instructor.

#6 – And hooooo do you think you are?

  1. I like 3 and 7

  2. Ditto. 7 first and then 3.

    1. Excellent. That seems to be the consensus. I went with #7. :)

  3. I like 7 and 1

    1. 1 DOES have the mustache, but I went with 7. ;)

  4. The happiness in #7 is infectious. But the side eye in #3 implies "you're in trouble and don't even know it".

    1. Those are definitely two strong points of my personality. But I like infecting people, so I went with 7. ;)

    Number 3 and 7 are the best. I'll pick 7, then 3

    1. Aw, thanks, Niall! I owe you an email, by the way. ;)

    2. No worries Lexie. Whenevr you're settled in the new place after New York is good by me :-)
