Let's Get Serious

While I generally take a cute photo (after weeding a single one out of 25, 50, or more; I'm incredibly picky! ;), I decided that cute isn't quite what I want anymore.

So I updated my photo with all of my social media and author pages, because I wanted something more "authorly".  Oddly enough, I'm holding a genealogy file in my hands in the photo.

What do you think about author photos?  Do they really matter?  Do you like the professional ones without much of a background, or do you like seeing somebody more "in their element"?

Personally, I like to know more about an author than that they look good and write well.  It interests me to see their personality and know what they like to do, because you never know what you might have in common.  ^.^
