Help me pick a new headshot!

Hello! About once every two or three years, I get new acting headshots taken. I'm super excited about finding photographer Claire McAdams. She's based in Austin, but comes through Houston 3 or 4 times a year to shoot here.

In the comments section below, please "vote" for your top three choices. I'd really appreciate your input. Thank you (and please forgive me if this seems live a ridiculous exercise in narcissism--I'm an actor...we can be that way sometimes)!

Oh my gosh! Do you know what an immpossible assignment this is?! You are just so beautiful and your photographer did an outstanding job. I've looked 'em over several times and finally I'm ready to commit...

"J" is my favorite for a few reasons. First off, you look stunning in that color. My oh my! Also I just love, love, love your expression. It's kinda like you just learned of something wonderful. This picture inspires within me a desire to get to know ya. Does that make sense?

I also love "C" for many of the same reasons. It's a touch more serious yet altogether lovely. There's a little hint of drama there. Love it!

Your smile is so pretty and inviting so please don't think that I don't love your pictures with a full smile. It's just the other two are intriguing... I'd look at them and say to myself, "well, of course she has a beautiful smile that's just a given but there's more to this girl..."

Regardless of whichever one you pick there's no way to go wrong!

You are gorgeous my dear! :)

To risk sounding like a copy cat, I also picked 'c' and 'j' and for pretty much the same reasons! I kept being drawn back to those two. Intriguing is the same word that came to my mind.

But, all of them are beautiful...of course!

Good luck!

B, G, J. These are in alpha order, not order of favorite.

Keep your spirits up. That call will come and then life will move so fast you won't know what hit you!

Praying for your referral!

D, J, & K in that order

I like D & J!! D for your wonderful personality that shines through. It looks like the "FUN in dysfunctional" (your quote, btw, that I will never forget!) Tracy everybody loves. And J b/c it is the PERFECT "mom" headshot for on camera stuff. Beautiful and maternal!

Debbie Schuster said...

Photo "C" immediately jumped out at me--you are beautiful in all of them, but I think it's your eyes in this one, like you are truly seeing & connecting with me, the viewer.

Laura said...

I like "C" because it's a more serious photo of you and "E" because it shoes the gleam in your eye. Actually I like them all, but those two are my favorites - they show contrasts in your personality - one is pensive, the other is playful!

Tracy,

I like C the best - looks like a professional model shot. My 2nd favorite is J - which has a very warm, friendly feel to it.

Blessings to you and Brian,

G & J got my votes the first time through, then I changed my mind many times because they're all so good and capture a certain something. But finally, because it didn't get any easier, I just decided to go back to my spontaneous first choices! They're all wonderful...

lisa w. said...

Ohhhh! I really like J, F is FUN and D makes me take a 2nd look!

AND...#1 on the list, YEAH! Cannot wait to hear the outcome, can only imagine what you guys are feeling!

Christi said...

I like "C" the best! I almost think you look like Julianne Moore in that shot. Really, really nice.

Sharon said...

D or E. They show your personality and would look good in B&W.

Pamela said...

C is my absolute favorite! I also like J and I.

I like C the best, with H as a close second. Sorry I didn't reply sooner, I've been behind on my reading. Hope you were able to pick one!

Jennifer said...

C is incredible! She captured you absolutely perfectly in this picture. So warm, loving, inviting, and very very sparkley!

Tracy said...

Thanks, everyone for your input! My photographer let me pick three, so I have taken your advice to heart and ordered C, E, and J!

Thanks again for your input!

C and D. You're beautiful!
I had fun thinking of how lovely your dear face will look to your new sons, and how it will become familiar to them with time. C especially says "I'm a great Mom." D says "I'm a fun Mom."

Congrats again to you and Brian on the amazing news of your two sons.

Can you tell the names yet?

C said...

This is so tough! You are so beautiful! ALL the head shots are gorgeous! That teal/aqua color looks amazing on you. I also LOVE "C". They're all fab, but if I *had* to choose, I think "C".
