Author Headshots

In preparation for the desgin of my book cover, my website and other marketing materials for The Ultimate To Do List When Your Loved One Dies | Before and After the Funeral, I evaluated different options for headshots.


Do I take them locally? Do I have my husband take one just after I had my hair done? 


In August, we went on a Princess Cruise for our vaction. During all cruises, they take pictures. This particular shot in this post was taken by one of the ship's photographers one evening during the formal dining. I liked the way it turnecd out, but I wanted a more formal, serious picture for my book cover.


As luck would have it, on this particular ship, there was a formal photo of the first professional studio set-ups on a cruise ship. I decided to take the plunge and book a session.


My black and white headshot used for the book cover was taken in this new and high-end photo studio. Jeremy Chichester-Miles took the photos in black and white. During the session, he took 125 photos. Different styles. Different looks. Different clothing.


I was happy with the final results!

    When someone writes an piece of writing he/she keeps the image of a user in his/her brain that how a user can be aware of it. Thus that's why this post is perfect. Thanks!

    No matter if some one searches for his essential thing, therefore he/she wants to be available that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained over here.
