Apparently too cute in person.

November 14th, 2009 ~ 1:15 pm

In other news I’m still trying to figure out the ideal headshot for me. I got feedback on the new one I was using that was really similar to the feedback on the more serious lawyer-y one I was using before. I look younger, cuter, more pixie-like in person they say. Actually not even ‘look’ so much as just have that vibe. So even though my newer shot is sweet and looks like me, it doesn’t capture how I am in person I guess.

I mean, I can’t complain about a CD telling me I’m way cuter in person, but I need to figure out how to get that across in a picture. I think I found one that is closer- the one I have on my business cards actually. It’s really close to the one I have but a tinge younger and more more interesting. I asked for opinions on facebook and got a lot that think the one I’m using is best (yes, it’s a very pretty pic of me) but I also got a lot on this other one, so I’m going to try it since my current one is sweet but a bit plain.

I think the challenge for me is that I see myself in a lot of different ways depending on my mood, but if I’m still coming across as cute in person when I’m not trying to be, I may as well embrace that and let that be what I’m selling for now. I want them to know what they are getting if their going to call me in, and my current pic isn’t very heavy on personality or energy.
