Say: "Cheese!"




I long for a decent picture of me. I'm hardly ever in any photos as I'm usually the one taking the photos. If, perchance there is a shot of me, it is one I inevitably don't like. Chin too wobbly, frizzy hair, weird facial expression or strange mark on my face. These are the latest attempt to capture a picture for my profile that a) doesn't look 'posed' b) is a reasonable facsimile of the real thing and c) is moderately flattering.

Yes.

They were taken in the car. My best lighting.

But I still look weird. Maybe it's not the camera after all!

Love them. You look fabulous. Love the top one best but they are all on a par. I wonder which one others like the best.

Oooh, I like the first one. You look stunning!

You're not the hag you'd have us believe.

Melinda,

You look fantastic! I like the first one too but I actually like all three. I agree, it's hard to get a good picture of me too. I'm usually the one taking the pictures. Whenever my husband wants to take a picture of me it's inevitably when I haven't showered and look like a troll. I already have a permanent mental image of that in my head I don't need real life photos to remember! :)

Much love from NJ,
Sue

Hello beautiful woman - thank you for sharing these lovely photos of you...

They are good shots. I don't get why we see one thing while the world see's something else.

I hate photos of me. But I figure one day I need to leave some reminder for my children that I in fact was present.

Much Loves Dxxx

You don't look weird!!! I love the shots, you're Pretty!!

I take about a bazillion shots to get a decent self-portrait, this is why I NEVER CHANGE MY FACEBOOK PROFILE PICTURE.

Personally I favour shots taken from above so I can pretend I don't have bags under my eyes.

Oh and always make sure you are fully clothed when taking self-portraits.

I like the final photo the best. (You weren't actually driving when you took these photos, were you?)
