I don’t have a “professional head shot” for my author picture. I have a couple of different shots I use. Most of the have been taken by my husband. One was taken by a stranger at a Un. of Arkansas Razorback game. (Been a rough week for us Hog Fans!) One was cut out of a picture somebody took of my and Sylvia Day. Kind of pitiful. BUT those could be worse. I could be using my Glamour Shots!
Years ago (back when man first discovered fire) there was a photo studio named Glamour Shots. If you’ve heard of Glamour Shots, raise your hand. Hmm, not so many of you.
Well what would happen is that you would go to the Glamour Shot Studio, someone would do your hair and slather your face in 14 layers of make-up. Then you would go through tops they had there and pick a few for pictures. *I am totally freaking out right now just thinking about the cooties on those clothes because you KNOW they were never ever cleaned! EEK*
I thought you might get a hoot out my glamour shot. This was almost 20 years ago…
Look at those earrings! HAHAHA Thank goodness they were clip-ons.
And that blush! My lord, she must have used an entire tin of red!
I’m pretty sure this was supposed to reflect my “fun and sexy side.”
Not sure it worked all that well. LOL
But not to be outdone, my “serious” side wanted a shot at being Ms. Glamour Shot.
See all that “Serious Angst” on my face?
I’m obviously contemplating serious stuff.
AND that lower lid liner! Oh My!
My lips are so red I look hypoxic!
Can you imagine the volume of hairspray I had to use to get every hair in the right place?
I know some authors use old pictures for their official head shot. I don’t think I could get away with it, do you?
So tell me about your author photo. Professional? Family shot? and if you have a Glamour Shot you’re willing to share, send it to me at cynthiadalba at sbcglobal dot net and I’ll add it to my post today!
YAY Keri Ford wants to play too! Here’s Keri…
See Keri…She’s all serious.

Holy cow. I’m laughing my ass off. I present “Erin crawling across the table.
Thank you for sharing!
We have a late contender…I present Susan Howard and her husband. Check out her upper chest. Looks like she’s had open heart surgery with little if any repair! Thanks for the early morning chuckle!
