    I swear i will never take a glamour shot (whatever that is) or any other inappropriote shot for my author photo.

    (i REALLY want that t-shirt!!)

    I’m already getting a copy of Strangers, but i want Holiday Seduction too…. hmm must go find a horrible photo of me!

    Oh my Jeezits! Some of those early shots of Megan especially are practicallly unrecognizable! I mean, in that one early Lauren shot I could at least tell it’s her but Megan, oy vey! :lol:

    I loved the opening to the post. Very funny.

    I’m so very lucky that I was too wee when Glamour Shots first started and I still haven’t done them, thank God.

    I think the pic of myself that I use for promo’s and stuff is okay but I do hereby vow to never EVER wear a feather boa or any Glamour Shot derivation thereof as a promo picture! :lol:

    I won’t ever use a glamour shot, I swear. But I am using the headshots I had to get done for my non-fiction book. If anything, I look a tad more formal than I typically do but I don’t think they suck, lol

    I promise to both of you that I will never take a glamour shot and wear a feather boa for my author shot. I pull up “danehart discuss” everyday to hear any new postings. You both are very informative and refreshing to us aspiring authors. Have I sucked up enough to win the t-shirt yet?

    Ok, after days of debating here it is. My friends and i were doing a film when i was in college/starting university. This is me as The Dark Lord(ess) Miss Snugglebunny (no, really, i’m not joking.)

    A random professional photographer wondered past while we were filming and took these shots. (again, wish i was kidding)
    us filming, i’m the girl on the rock.
    and a close up of my costume. I think this would make an AWESOME author photo to be fair. Other than the fact you can see my bra. (also, it was -2 degrees ish that day. i FROZE to death…)

    @AJ: YOU ARE SO BRAVE! LOL! *claps*

    I do like your costume — that hat!!! WHEEEEE!

    Never ever will I take any Glamour shots. ROFL

  11. 11

    What a bunch of good sports you all are! AJ, awesome pictures, thanks for sharing.

  12. 12

    I have never had any Glamour Shots!! I think they don’t look like the person in the photos.

  13. 13

    ok so first off…

    i solemly swear never to take a glamour shot…

    and here are the links to my pics:

    Hi! I didn’t know about the blog here, cool!
    Was there anything I was to hear on the video since I’m deaf? What were you saying

  15. 15

    I promise that I never have nor ever will use Glamour Shots. I always found that place pretty scary.

    Now for the picture. please keep in mind that any picture taken of me is the point of view from either a 2 year old or 6 year old.

    I am so challenged when it comes to things like this…but hopefully this will link up…and what was I thinking when I let this photo be taken?

    Also, I promise to never have a glamour shot taken. I hate having my picture taken (and after seeing this you will understand) and I could not imagine paying the price for glamour shots.

    I promise to never wear a feather boa and/or chandelier earrings if ever I have a glamor shot taken. I hate getting my picture taken. And in fact the only time in my life I almost got in a physical fight was when I told everyone I didn’t want my picture taken and this little jackass came and took my picture.
    Glamor shots are a source of amusement for me – a number of my friends have gone to Asia and had them done. One looks *gorgeous* – and had one made into a wall scroll- and everyone who saw it thought she was some pop star. (She was also in high school.) There was a nice background, dress, everything.
    As for pictures, since I hate having mine taken, this is a bit difficult.
    Hopefully this goes through – it seems to be a common theme (which is funny because I RARELY drink) – but here’s me… double fisting it:
    [and actually whenever this happens ALWAYS one of the drinks is water - but that's so deceptive.]
    And another stupid photo- we were bored – I guess the saving grace is my Senate badge isn’t showing:

    In fact – proof of my hating photos… I’m channeling the exorcist scene to avoid having my pic taken.

    :P Also most my stupid pics are from hs and I don’t have a scanner.

    Ok – so I’ll admit I’m having trouble finding “stupid photos” b/c I… pretty much destroy them as them come along. I tend to avoid photos (I’ll probably climb under a table even to do so). But… here we go – this is back in college and before… :P though I … don’t think any of the pics are more than 10 years old >.< Gah.

    - and yes, the last one, ultimate stupid – I did get on a stage and dance. With “costumes” and it was choreographed, and you probably couldn’t pay me enough now to ever do it again.

    @Diane M.: True, Diane!

    @aliquis: LOL!!! I love the pouty face one!

  22. 22

    @aliquis: See, I’m the opposite. I LOVE having my picture taken. I don’t always love how I look, and many times I look like a bung!

  23. 23

    @Lori T: That’s not a bad picture at all! Not a feather in sight. :eek:

  24. 24

    @Brandy W: LOL! I have some pictures just like that. But no, that probably wouldn’t work as a professional headshot. :)

  25. 25

    @Danielle A.: Heeee! I deleted your other comments, Danielle, they all came through at once. :)

    Love the karate shot!

  26. 26

    Megan and Lauren….

    I think your promo photos are always great!

    I can solemnly swear…pinky swear…that I will never do a photo at Glamour Shots or anything similar!

    No pictures to post.
