More Glam Scans from my Past

April 12th, 2011 Posted in Uncategorized

I went all out for my author photo for my book Waiting For My Cats to Die, and hired a make-up artist and one of the best photographers money can buy. Marion Ettlinger can make anyone look like a rock star. But then for the next couple of years I had to deal with the inevitable look of disappointment when people met me and I wasn’t that glamorous in person. For my next author photo I kept my glasses on and didn’t wear any makeup except what I use in real life (almost nothing, lipstick and a little concealer under my eyes).

But here are the three shots I considered for Waiting. They were taken in 2000, I believe it was, and I went with the last one below.

This was was a little too va-va-va-voom.  Plus my bangs look funny.

Something was off about my face.  Those shoes are cute, though!  Do I still own those??

The winner!  Reminder:  I didn’t look like this then and I certainly don’t look like this now!

    I’ve shot portraits of my friends and lovers for over 30-years – it’s my favorite hobby.

    All of these photos are attractive for different reasons. Your book cover shot shows your almost-perfect (nobody’s perfect) heart-shaped face which is very pleasing. The middle one may be “off” to you because it’s a full face shot taken from a higher angle – you probably never look at yourself that way. Great photographer and attractive model! (Also, you seem very relaxed in these).
    kind regards,

    I was relaxed. The photographer was very good at that. And thank you for the compliment!
