I think alot of it is that we are our own worst critics, or maybe that pics or taken then you see some random bit of crap that sneaks in.  Usually in my DIY pics of my paper products, you can see my ever present coffee cup in the background and that is just me.

Lol, yeah I’m guilty of that.  One of my wedding dress pics I posted has me with a strange expression because I’m concentrating on not shaking my phone while I take the pic.  I don’t actually think it’s that bad, pointing it out is just making fun of myself.

I dunno, I think it’s just acknowledging the fact that we know it’s not a perfect picture.  I don’t understand things you can’t exactly control like “hey, sorry for my fat arms.”  We’re all beautiful here!

But yeah, in the end it’s us feeling a tad embarassed/guilty that we didn’t bother to clean up (the room or our hair, or whatever).  Personally, I don’t usually care what’s in the background– my house certainly isn’t spotless– especially while I’m planning a wedding!

I’m definitely guilty at that at times, but usually if I am making a strange face.

Yeah, I second the PPs…  I didn’t notice that the need for a slip showed in my only wedding dress photo (and someone had mentioned it regarding the photo on the model), or that the cat had thrown random stuff off shelves…  It’s going “I know this isn’t a photo to brag over – it’s just for reference’ sake.”  Also, I’m feeling really down over how crazy my wedding is going to look, so I’m hyper-critical of it myself and am making the best of a screwy situation.

I think it’s all in good fun. In a public speaking class I took many of the speakers would preface with “Sorry I’m so nervous, shaky, etc…” It’s just a way to calm down when sharing personal details. Everyone gets nervous, even if it’s just sharing a picture online!
