Do you have any of her showing her teeth?

Her teeth? Why?

Well, I wanted to show a sample of my work . . . Well, I might have to use baby instead after all. :(

I guess if I were to put a senior pic on there, I'd have them smiling with teeth. Just me.

Hmmm . . . . no, I don't see that as an issue at all. A lot of Seniors don't show a toothy smile or grin.

Oh, and my designer made a good point about my name -- if we use lower case letters -- kristinsmall -- it can look like Kristin's Mall. :lol: Better keep the uppers, I think.

must've been someone else who commented about the letters. with regard to the teeth, that's just my opinion.

I would avoid a portrait if it is not of you.

And if you want to have a portrait there, take one where you can't see the person clear. Like a high/low-key picture wiht only parts of the person visible... or just a body part, like eyes... or from behind.

Something that shows youre photographic skills without risking any misunderstanding.

Agree with 2 points, the writing going over the photo seems wrong (almost as if it was a mistake when the template was made), and I immediately assumed it was a photo of you, if you want to use an example of your work, then a couple would be better or at least something that looks less like a head and shoulders pic that will make 90% of people think its a pic of Kristin Small.

Thanks, Vinminus -- it's very nice, but I need to keep my special font (it's on everything I print.) Also, everyone pretty much agrees that I shouldn't use that photo (of my daughter.) :( I will, however, show my designer what you did. :)

I'm not a big fan of using pictures on a business card...just a preference. That said, I see nothing wrong with using a model, a baby, or your daughter to represent what YOU SHOOT. Use the picture.

That is unfortunate because your phone number is rather difficult to read with the numbers running into each other (touching each other). I would suggest to avoid handwriting type fonts for business purposes. Maybe your designer can tell you to change your "special" font into something more standard and design conscious.

I meant that I have to keep it for the business name -- not the phone number. :)
