Operation Marry Mom Off continues--

Mom asked me over to take a few photos of her for her profile. They turned out pretty well! A little photo manipulation on a few of them, but overall, some good shots. No-one in my family is photogenic, and it gets much worse when we're actually posing for a photo, so these are out of about 50 shots...

Anyway, that's what my mother looks like, so there.

They look really nice! I hate the last two because it looks overly posed and stiff. She looks relaxed with the dog (omg, cute dog) or even with a lampshade on her head, and she's smiling in those, so they're more striking and beautiful.

Remember: Even the "photogenic" celebrities on magazine covers get 50 frames to hit the perfect pose. Or more.

Yeah, she wanted something in a bit of a glamour dress and pose, and the photograph that was the best of that particular batch was kind of blurry, so I "fixed" it with a few artsy photoshop effects. But, yes, it's pretty posed.

None of us look good when we smile for the camera. So a lot of these were, "okay, on three, one [click!]"...

Oh, you tricksy little person, you. I'm definitely going to try that on people I know.

The other day my friend Jack wanted some "model-esque" photos, but he kept giggling (bit drunk, heh), so my friend yelled, "Jack! Think about something serious! GENOCIDE!" That was an interesting photo. Apparently genocide doesn't strike a somber attitude in him.

I like the one where she's pretending to be a lamp.

The one sitting with the dog is the best and most relaxed.

The first one is too much "Mrs. Robinson"

That's fair. Well, she can use her favorite two or three, I'll be interested in seeing what she picks.

Your mom is beautiful! I like the ones with the dog best. She looks so serene and comfortable and happy :)

Sadly, the dog is a little bonkers, getting her to pose was muy challenging!
