I have me some new Author Pics!

I’ve been debating for a year whether to hire a professional photographer to do a whole photo shoot and currently I’m in debt SEVERAL GRAND after last month’s April 15th Tax Day so I’m feeling quite broke.
My Scholastic publicist called last week and said “I need a photo of you right away! The Albuquerque Journal wants to do an article/feature/interview on you!”

Actually, I don’t know exactly what they want to do, but they want a photo NOW. With HIGH resolution which my profile pic on LJ and my website are *not*.  

No time to call a photographer and get shots and proofs made up let alone go shopping for new clothes and a hair highlight touch-up – with only 24 hours, it’s impossible. 

Darling publicist emails back: “Just grab a camera and a family member and take some at home. In fact, go outside and take some shots since your book is set on the bayou.” 

Great idea! So we do exactly that and these are the best ones:
Honesty is the best policy, hee, hee.

NOTE: These have NOT been photo shopped or touched up AT ALL. Thinking about getting my son to take away some of those neck and eye lines . . . 

Do you think I should hire a pro and get some *real* author photos done? Goodness, what will it cost me? Gulp.

I like the 2nd, 3rd, and 2nd to the last ones! They are all good, really, but those are my favs!

Thanks, Justine! You are so sweet!

I'm thinking of some outfit changes and different times of day now . . . ;-)

The photos are beautiful - because you are beautiful!!! If you decide you want a photo shoot and are in Salt Lake any time soon, my sister does awesome bio photos. She did mine, and she is easy to work with and super affordable.

Miss you!
