Photophobic

I cringe when I see someone whip out a camera.  I'm an attractive girl, but man do I come out horrible in pictures.  Not photogenic at all.  Maybe it's insecurity.  Most people tell me my photos look fine.  I'm either not as cute as I thought, or they are very polite. lol  Guess I focus in on the imperfections.  On the other hand, I hate taking pictures too.  I'm just not a picture person.  I have two beautiful children and most moms have pictures of their kids everywhere.  I have a rep for not carrying any baby photos.  My mom says she'll get a picture of my 4 yr old on his wedding day. tee hee  What is it with me and pictures????

I think for some people, what makes them attractive is how they are when they move, when they're alive. Photographs are such static things and if you have to pose for them then it just takes all that life out of you. I have a little cousin who is quite gorgeous, but her smile for the camera smile is just a shocker, and her body language changes and it's just all wrong. It's unusual for someone to have too high an opinion of themselves, in my experience!

naw, it is extremely easy to be overly self-conscious. Maybe your scared to see that someone (your picture) else is so beautiful as you and deny its beauty? :P <br />
Nah, it is not easy to get photographed; I hate being photographed by others; normally I photgraph myself if I need a picture. hehe :P
