Lightbulb [Q] Text messages help Please.

Hello I just got the ota of jellybean 4.3. Now on text messages there is a small contact picture next to every text i send or receive. is there a way to remove this ? . I know it sounds silly but it bugs me to see a pic of the person i am texting every time i get a text from them. I have tried searching but have not found anything on this. If ther eis a thread already about this can someone point me in the right direction? Thanx
