A Bloggers Photo Studio?

How do you feel about profile pics? I use a full length photo of myself on my sidebar because when I put a ‘face only’ photo…it’s scary! I smile real big! My eyes squint! My hair sticks up!

And where do I go to get my photo taken?

Let’s review my profile pics!

Let’s see….I was in the Swamp when this one was taken.

At the creek for this one…

And my newest photo was taken at Rainbow Springs last weekend, 90 degrees with high humidity. I pulled a baseball cap off my too short hair and smiled!

Maybe I should use this one. This is a real Indian and no he is not allowed to smile! haha! (I told you my hair sticks up, now do you believe me?)

I’m leaving these all small… postage size pics! I think I’ll delete this post after I get a few laughs!

So where do you have your profile pics taken?

Indoors?

That’s no fair! Winking smile

I'm so picky about photos. I need to relax and let it be. Some are indoors and some outside. Most of the time I'm not to thrilled about them!!

Vee said...

I do not like my photos...never have seen a good one...so I've returned to being a pine cone...oops carnation...for the duration. I love all of your profile pics!

Nancy said...

I stopped using my own. It's part of an experiment I am doing. ;)So far, it's...not working. haha

FABBY'S LIVING said...

You look great in all of your pictures, sweetie! Ok, my fav is you in the jacket! I personally never like my potos, as I'm not fat at all, but certainly manage to look chubby in the pics...geezzzzz!!!! Hugs,
FABBY

TexWisGirl said...

so cute!

i usually sit on my deck and try not to look at the camera. :)

Cranberry Morning said...

Fun photos, Diane! I think I'm soon going to be done with photos of myself. The other day when I thought I had my hair okay and my clothes okay, I had Kevin snap a couple photos. Jeepers, all I saw was squinty eyes and wrinkles. Time to reformat that card. lol

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Lol, I haven't posted one..I'm incognito.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I've never liked my photos and I do try to stay incognito in blogland because that's the way hubby wants it. The only pics of me I've shown where you can see my whole face were taken so long ago and I doubt anyone would know who I was now! haha!
Your pics are great, Diane, and that last one is especially cute!

Debby said...

You look good in all the pictures. I can't take a pic of myself. I usually use one that someone else has taken that I don't look too bad in. I think we are all critical of how we look in photos. But I think that it is important to have pictures of yourself.

Pamela Gordon said...

I think you take a great photo Diane. I like them all! I grin too big too and then my eyes squint up. We recently did a photo shoot and I noticed that. Oh dear. My current photo was taken in the park in November last year and I'm wearing a fall jacket with a poppy on it and a scarf. Maybe I should update for summer. A fun post. :)

Catherine Holman said...

I love the last photo!
I don't like any photos of myself.

Babs said...

All your photos are so cute.
Mine is from 2007, and it was one taken at our son's wedding. That's the last decent photo I've had. LOL

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I hope it didn't sound like I took these photos of myself. My hubby or son took all of these while we were out and about different places. I used to be shy about getting my photo taken, too but now I just smile my goofy smile (and squint my eyes) and enjoy the happy times!

cucki said...

All your photos are so sweet....I love them all.
Hugs sweetie x

Susie said...

I have had only one profile shot , it was at the St.Louis Arch. I don't know how to change it ...so I am very small .LOL xoxo,Susie

Musings from Kim K. said...

I love the last photo too! You are so darn adorable!!

Noelle the dreamer said...

I defintively like the one where you hold on the post the best Diane!
I NEVER take photos of myself or family, do not profile, use only pen names (even for MAC the Corgi)...Come to think of it, that's not exactly true...somehow Maira kept her name...Hmm, I must have forgotten our cloak and dagger coverup...
Hugs Friend! You look happy, what else is needed?
All the best,

TheRustyThimble said...

Simple answer here, I DON'T. I have always hated my pictures so I do not let anyone take any of me. real simple LOL
Your pictures are so sweet Diane I love the last one, you always look like you are enjoying yourself in your pictures

Hugs
Brenda

Donna said...

Yep, I had mine done indoors. And all is fair in blogging!

The Boston Lady said...

I just use a picture I like - not that I like pictures of me. I like the last photo best, but honestly Diane, whose hair doesn't stick up! Ann

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I think you look super cute!! I love my one photo of me 'behind' the camera!

hugs,
Linda

Linda Walker said...

Lol!!! Love that last photo too! You are so funny! I am still chuckling!

NanaDiana said...

LOL - I have such a hard time doing anything with my blog that I leave my original one up there. My hair is lighter now than it was 3 years ago! xo Diana

Laurie said...

I think you are a sweet heart and so very pretty, I love them all,

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Your pictures are great. Do you think if I used a picture of my dog anyone would know it's not me, OR care!.Thank you for your kind visit..Happy Wednesday..Judy

Diane said...

I don't have any photos posted of myself-- don't want to scare away readers! Ha, ha...

Brenda said...

I don't!

Leave It To Davis said...

I never like my pictures, either. You are cute as a button, though. I have to deal with my lard butt size!

Pondside said...

Maybe someday I'll get up the courage to put a profile picture up. I hate myself in photos, and when I post one in a blog post (rarely!) I have a lot of angst! I like your new photos - all your pictures show your lovely smile!

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

I love them all! You could have them all on your side bar and list by year. The one of you on the blue pole is too cute!
Blessings,
Cindy
