Author Photos- How I tackle them

I don't understand this fascination I have with author photos. Maybe it's that I like to take a nice picture of the person that also captures their personality AND their book.

Kinda hard, huh?

I knew with Hannah's author photos we wanted to do something fun and cute and approachable. And although her book (BREAK) is of more serious nature she does have some more fun stuff coming out. After all, she's young and I wanted her photo to reflect that.

With Victoria we wanted something fresh and outdoorsy since her book takes place so much outdoors.

With Kami and Margie this time I broke it up. I still wanted to keep it comfortable, like the South, but give each lady their own style.

Margie is super laid back so we lounged around mostly and stayed inside.

With Kami we ventured outside but kept close to earthy tones like leaves and the wooden backdrops.

But at the end of the day I just hope the author has fun and is relaxed because no one wants to look at a tense picture of themselves for the next couple of years or on their books.

  1. Great photos! When I have my book published, can you do my photos and book trailer? LOL I'm not photogenic at all. Maybe you can work some photo magic on me.
