Tabitha Bird says
I like number two… but number one didn’t load properly when I got on your blog. so I am sure that one is nice too 🙂
Ted Cross says
I like number 1.
Larry Hyatt says
That’s a tough one. They both look good. I’ve always liked the first one and the second seems to say “I enjoy what I do.” I’d go with #1.
They are both beautiful, but I think #1 looks more dramatic–good for an author pic.
Michelle Davidson Argyle says
#1 – it’s from an angle, which is usually always more flattering. You look both in great, though! I love your hair!
Andrea Mack says
Caroline, this is a tough question, both photos look good. I think I like #1 best, because it has more of a hint of mystery to it.
Ugg. They’re both really nice. Hmmm…I’m not sure if it’s because I’m used to seeing it, but photo one makes me feel like I know you. LOL
Van Lente Family says
I like #1! Both pictures are equally good but #1 to me, looks more like an author pic!
Lola Sharp says
I honestly think they are both good and flattering photos, so I can see why you are undecided.
That said, I’d go with #1.
I’m still away on a long vacation in Maine, land of sketchy internet and NO cell phone service…so I apologize for not getting around the blogosphere in weeks.
I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend,

one, one, one, one.(: YES. It’s lovely.
Jill Domschot aka Arabella says
You have a very nice smile, which is the benefit of #2, but I’d go with #1 because it seems author-like.
Carin S. says
I like #1. It’s just more interesting.
Karen Strong says
I agree with most of the others. Both pictures look great, but I like the side angle of #1.
Designs by JoLea says
I think #1
Jonathon Arntson says
I prefer the former, but both are great!
Weronika Janczuk says
David J. West says
looks like I am with the majority here-#1.
Caroline Starr Rose says
Thanks, everyone, for making this easy!
Natalie Aguirre says
Both pictures are great, but I like #1 better.
Valerie Geary says
Well… I’m late to the party… but Number 1 is my number 1 pick. 🙂
Rosslyn Elliott says
I agree–number one is a more engaging and complex look, and your eyes come out, which is very important in a portrait. Lovely shots!
Frankie Diane Mallis says
Definitely the first–you look great in both, but the angle and composition of the first one is intriguing and there’s something memorable about it:-)
I like #1!
Faith E. Hough says
I cast my vote with #1. I just love the sparkle in your eyes there!
Shelli (srjohannes) says
#1 but they are both beautiful!
I love the light on your face in #2, but your expression in #1 is fantastic. Such a hard decision! Both are gorgeous.
Definitely number one. The mysterious sparkle in your eyes makes me wonder what you were thinking, just what the reader should wonder about an author. 😉
#1 Definitely has an air of mystery. There’s a mischievous glint in your eyes. (Hugs)Indigo
They’re both beautiful, but #1 would be my pick 🙂
