Help Me Choose a New Profile Picture

It’s been nearly two years since I updated my standard profile picture for Internet things. I’ve been using shots from a session I did with Carla from Baby Ji Designs just before BlogHer 2009. The photos in my current blog header are all from that shoot. Back then, Erin was still in the backpack, though just barely, and Adrian was brand new to the world and still too small to go in the backpack at all. Now, Adrian is nearly out of the backpack entirely. I can’t believe it’s been so long.

A few weeks ago I did another session with Carla, this time with proceeds going to support Enoch Choi’s Japan relief work. One of the pictures from that session will be my new profile picture, but I can’t decide which one.

So I need your help.


I suppose I could always mix and match them around on sites, using one for Facebook, one for Twitter, etc…But that’s too reasonable. So what say you, Internet? Left or Right? Smiling Dad or Mischievous Boy? Two arms or one?

Editor’s Note: The picture to which my wife alludes in the comments below is this:

  1. I was going to say the one on the right until you pointed out you had one arm in it. Definitely the two-armed dad. Cuz otherwise that's just creepy.

  2. Neither. You should use the one of you kneeling down with Erin, while Adrian is still in the backpack. Preferably the one where Erin is sticking her tongue out – THAT'S real life.

  3. I was going to vote for the one on the right, (because your son's expression is better). But when you pointed out that your right arm is missing, now that pic looks weird. But over all, yeah, I have to agree that the third pic with both kids, (and you kneeling), is the best.

  4. You look better in the left but Adrian looks better in the right. Since he's a kid and looks awesome no matter what, I vote for left!

  5. From a photographer's standpoint … the one on the right is the "better" photo, but either one will do!

  6. I like the one with you and both kids but otherwise the one that shows both arms.

  7. I like the right one, I think people will understand you do have another arm. Your son looks more relaxed.

  8. Go right. It's a more intense picture and will draw people to it. Your missing arm isn't obvious if you don't mention it.

  9. Wife knows best – go with the third photo. But if you want to be difficult and not listen to your wife, use the one on the right. Adrian looks so adorable in it. People will get that you have two arms – or you can always Photoshop the arm from the other picture into the one on the right.
