Do photgraphs capture the real you?

I take the ugliest pictures ever, I like the person I see in the mirror, but I hate what I see in pictures. My husband of course tells me Im beautiful in person and in pictures ( he has to say that ). I really hope what people see in pictures isn't what I see. Does anyone else feel like this?

  • I have this camera that does that. I will think I look good to take the picture but when I take it I look bad. I bought another one and it looks better. More like me.

  • I feel exactly like you do! I hope to God I don't really look like I do in pictures. Eww. And my husband tries to tell me I look good in pictures too but if he's serious that makes me feel even worse lol!
