Vote, vote, vote ... for, well, me!

Okay, so I desperately need a new book jacket photo, not to mention new pics to go with my new website (coming soon!).

Here's the four pics I selected from a recent shoot.

Please, please, please, drop me a comment and let me know if one stands out to you as "book jacket" ... and also if there's one (or more, or all) that you think I should burn and never show in public again.

I figure those that don't make the book jacket will get a spot on my website. (oh, and if you click on the photo, it will make it bigger)

So here goes ....


Option Number One:



































Option Number Two:
































Option Number Three:
































Option Number Four:

Number 3. Definitely. You look gorgeous in all of them...I particularly like #1, but in #3, you have the prettiest smile!

Trivium Academy said...

#3 or #2, #3 is my favorite though, it looks the most approachable.

: ) Great pictures!

Lea said...

I agree, #3 is the best

2lilreds said...

I like #3 the best, too. You look the most approachable, like Jessica said.

They're all gorgeous, but I'd go with #3. Yup. Come back and tell us what titles will carry this photo!

Julie Kenner said...

Thanks you all so much! # 3 is firmly in the lead!

Lori D said...

I like #3 as well, Julie. Very sophisticated but approachable, as somebody else said.

I like #1.
Your knees look like a heart :o)

Carly Phillips said...

Number 3. Definitely!
You look amazing, but softer in 3. Like Lulie Leto said! XO

#2~! Most Definately!!!

1-Too much leg (and the heart shape it makes) and very hard to see your beautiful face.

3-Loooks forced and your cheek looks bulged out on the side where your hand is.

4-Just isn't a good pose for you at all.

You should go with #2. It's the best, closest and awesome frame shot of your face. You can't go wrong. Will look great on a book jacket. I will buy it! :)

#3 definitely, Julie. a very relaxed and friendly looking photo.

though you look beautiful in all of them. What great shots!

I just had pics taken too and omg it was tough choosing!

Tracie said...

I like #2 and #3 the best. I'd go with #2 because it looks like your left glasses lens is blurry in #3. You can see your right eye clearer than the left.

They are all nice pictures, but I'd had to say #2. It's captivating and you do look like an author in that pic. Studious meets mysterious and sexy!

Julie Kenner said...

I'm so appreciating all this feedback! My favs are 2 & 3 .... and 2 is coming up in the voting close to 3.

so here's my question for you #2 voters: does the fact that the glasses cut a/c my eyes bug you?

Remudamom said...

I'm with Mis Booshay. That's exactly what I thought when I saw the pic. Makes for a cool jacket photo.

sleepy jeanne said...

Definitely #3! You look great in all of them, though :-)

Darla said...

3 Is what I like the best.

cas2ajs said...

I'd have to go with #3 also. They all look really great though.

Shannon McKelden said...

Number 3 completely and totally! They look great and will be a wonderful update to your author photo! Congrats!

Tori Lennox said...

Well, I know I'm in the minority, but I like #1 best. :) #3 is good, too, though. But I like the more casual aspect of #1.

Number one.

You look serious, professional and intelligent -- yet you look relaxed, confident and comfortable.

I'm a photographer too so - I'll say #2 is best with #3 as backup #2 has an artsy angle and you can still see your eyes well too.

Lexi said...

I'm with the majority- #3!

Liberal Homeschooler said...

I vote 3, too. I like the little smile and the glasses cutting in the other one does bother me.

Carla said...

I like #2 the best -- very sophisticated look for you.

heather said...

I like #1 the best but any of the first three are nice. You look like you're sitting a bit awkwardly and are uncomfortable in #4.

Donna Van Cleve said...

#1

Louis said...

It's a toss-up between #1 and #2....although I'm leaning towards #2.

Anonymous said...

I vote for #2, interesting angle and the most striking pose. Black and white create strong contrasts. But - why so serious and why no colors? Thanks for writing the terrific demon books!!

I really like #3!! I think it's a great angle and beautiful photo of you!! How exciting!! Can't wait to see what you pick!!

All four are great pictures; it's hard to choose!

But for a book jacket, numbers 1 and 2 are my favorite, with 1 slightly in the lead. You just look so professional and approachable in #1.

The glasses cutting across your eyes doesn't bother me in #2 -- in fact, it's part of the reason I like it. You look slightly sassy, looking over the tops of your glasses that way. :)
