Before Kyeli’s surgery, we had our first professional photo shoot with the lovely and talented Trisha Renae, who does family photography in Austin. It was a lot of fun, and I think the photos came out great! See for yourself, then scroll down to the bottom, because I have an important question for you. I’m having a lot of trouble making up my mind, and I could really use your help.
Here are three professional-looking ones of me and one of my cleavage. Don’t say I never did anything for ya. (;
Kyeli is so beautiful. I am totally bookmarking this post.
Pace & Kyeli
And here’s the two of us together. A mix of professional and sweet (just like us).
Pace’s icon conundrum (and how you can help)
I love our illustrated icons. Kyeli, however, wants her icon to always reflect how she actually looks in real life, so whenever her hair, piercings, or glasses change, she wants her icon to reflect that, and it’s too hard to keep updating the illustration. That’s why she changed her icon on most sites from the illustrated one to a recent photo of herself.
One of the reasons I loved our illustrated icons is because they matched. Now that they don’t match anymore, I’m considering changing my icon all over the internet.
On the one hand, I want to keep the illustrated one because it’s cool, memorable, it stands out, and people are used to it.
On the other hand, I want to have a photo of myself because I think I’m cuter in a photo than in the illustration, and also, the Freak Revolution is all about being authentic — maybe that will come through more clearly with a photo?

I’d love to hear what you think about my pros and cons, and which of those icons you like best.
Thanks so much for your help!
