So...Which is YOUR Favorite?

Odds are, if you’ve seen a good picture of me, it was taken by my photographer friend, Jari Blakely Kirkwood. She’s amazingly patient and creative, not to mention fun to work with. So no wonder I called her and asked if we could have another go with the lens and lipstick...

To the left here is obviously The ABC's of Kissing Boys specific--in fact, I'm already using it as my Facebook profile picture, and have plans to use it on booksigning flyers.

But what I need is for everyone to weigh in on my Official 2009 Author Photo:





Number One (or Green):




Number Two (or Purple):



And Number Three (or Tree):


Many thanks to Jari again for her hard work.

And so please tell us...which is YOUR favorite?

I liked #2 because of your pose, #3 is cute, but #1 is green. Green doesn't go. Purple does!

Heather said...

I like Number Tree -- I mean, Three -- the best. It has more of a fun, light-hearted feel to it. Plus, you can never go wrong with tree-hugging. :P

Kelly Parra said...

Love them all, Tina!! Oh wow, #Tree for me! ;) Such a natural smile and gives a peek of your fun personality!

Shalonda said...

You take fabulous pictures. They all are so cute. I think I like #3the best. It's just so friendly and fun.

Susan Gable said...

Number One - the lighting is best in number one. (G) (LOL - see what happens when you ask for input? Everyone has a different opinion.)

You are such a beauty, Tina! I like them all but I think number one is my fav.

TinaFerraro said...

Susan and all, I LOVE the varying input! And right now it is waaaay too close to call. More opinions, please!

Hey, Tina,

First I LOVE the picture of you holding the book.

Of the 3 author pictures, I like 1 and 3. The cowl neckline in #2 takes the eye away from your face.

I like the green sweater pic a lot, but I LOVE the purple sweater against the tree pic. It's completely adorable, showcases your personality as well as your writing style (if a picture can do that!). It's young and hip and fun.

Hi Tina,
I like green (#1) You look approachable, comfortable and confident!

Tera Lynn Childs said...

I love you in the lavender, so I'll vote for the tree picture, as well. You look the most relaxed, natural, and beautiful in that pic.

Simone Elkeles said...

I love #1, too! You look great, and that necklace is unique and awesome. Not to mention, so few people look good in green and you totally pull it off!

Chirstina Lee said...

Green. I just love the color.

The Golfing Librarian said...

Once again, I offer the lone male POV. With that said, I love purple. I've ALWAYS had a thing for a cowl neckline, and I like the "straight on" angle of #2. However , I like the lighting on your face in #3 best.

TinaFerraro said...

Thanks again to all of you! #1 and #3 (green and tree) seem to be in the lead, but Chuck, simply the fact that you represent a different demographic (male librarian) gives your vote for #2 WEIGHT.

Marley Gibson said...

Well, there's not a bad pic in the lot, Tina!! Great photos. I especially like the wedged into the tree one - LOL! - #4!

Yan said...

I love #3 =) Yay trees!

Megan said...

I really like #3!

Jari Kirkwood said...

Tina: Love #1 w/ the light in your hair and so few can pull off green! #3 is cute! You are a great photo subject! Even when the photographer asks you to climb trees with ants in them! It's fun taking pictures of you, you have such a natural sparkle. So much better than squiggling kids and blinking grandmas! So proud of you and your work!

Heather Davis said...

I like number 3, but I also like the photo of you with the book. :)

You're very photogenic!

hugs,

Heath

TinaFerraro said...

Thank you for all the compliments...but I must say again, it's not that I am photogenic, it's Jari's talent.

But oh, yes, Jari wasn't kidding about the tree ants...that part WAS creepy. Plus, when I got home, kitty Rascal went catnip-like crazy over some scent on my boots and the hem of my pants. Don't know what that was, and don't want to! =)

Thao said...

I love the third pic the most, you look comfortable and your pose is nice too.

La Sirena said...

Pic #3 is the best. It's whimsical, playful and will appeal to your young demographic market.

Besides tree hugging rocks!

Meredith said...

I like green or the the tree picture!

yabooknerd said...

I love the tree one!

sharonanne said...

I like the #3 pic.

Monica said...

I'm going to have to go with tree. Not only is purple my favorite color (which has absolutely nothing to do with my choice by the way!) but your smile looks so natural in that shot, kinda casual and fun.

Korianne said...

my vote is for green it looks the most authorly. lol!
