Hello! You guys. I FINALLY got new author photos taken by the awesome Aaron Buck at PDX503photo.
I haven’t looked like this in FOREVER:
This photo was taken by my mom on Valentine’s 2011, in my kitchen as my ex-husband and I were on our way to visit my sister and new niece in the hospital before we went out to dinner. I literally thought, “I’m wearing make up and a turtle neck sweater, that’s super author-y,” and the decision was made.
Here’s the deal. This photo is everywhere on all the things. I like my hair long, but while I kind of resemble a young Angelica Huston, I’m not crazy about what the angle does to my long ol’ nose. I’ve only worn this sweater once, on this night, and my ex and I kind of forced ourselves to go out to dinner even though I’d been with my sister at the hospital through her many hours of labor. I was so tired!
It was time for a new author pic, and also time for some new family photos of me and the kids, so I did a combo session a few weeks ago. I decided this time around that I would put more thought into the photo, since I now realize that it’s going to follow me everywhere I go for the next few years.
Here’s the thing. Aaron took so many great photos, I can’t decide! Will you help me choose? Check out my favorites and vote for yours in the poll below!
