I’m a HUGE fan of glasses, I wear mine all the time. But, for pictures, having a pair with plastic frames that are normally so cute (and yours look great on you!), sometimes distract in photos. Yours look tinted or transition.  Honestly, I would either take them off for some photos, or buy a pair that are less noticable.  Check online for cheap places where you can get several pairs. I buy mine online for $10 a pair, and when I know there will be pics taken I always wear a pair that blend in and that don’t have stand-out details.

You do have a gorgeous face!  You don’t even need makeup, your skin is flawless! You have NO REASON to think otherwise!!!

I think you look great in these pictures.  Could you have posed differently in some of them? Yes, but it doesn’t make the shot look horrible.  You have a beautiful face with great cheek bones and should be proud of it.  The only thing i can say is that it looks like ure hiding behind you glasses and hair.  I think the pixie hair cut is really cute but it is a strong feature that would be balanced out with a less severe frame.  Also i used to work as an optician and if you choose a more square frame versus round it would be ure cheek bones out more and make ure face look less round.

You look lovely in the pics.  What I would suggest is to keep your head up.  A few pics you have your chin tilted down and your eyes looking up.  Tilt your head up and it will make your face look thinner.  I don’t think it looks pudgy but you do so that will help.

I think your face looks fine!  The last two pictures are very nice.  I just really don’t like the look of transitions or tinted lenses, personally, and you might consider a haircut that’s a little more “tailored” (I know that word makes no sense for hair, but can’t think of the right equivalent).

I think your pics are great and you are just being hard on yourself. Try to focus on what you like about your face instead of nit-picking the flaws that nobody else notices.

I am assuming you have the transition lens?  

I think you look beautiful!  I bet you felt self conscious on the day the pictures were being taken so you may not have been posing like you wanted.  This is why Fiance and I refuse to do engagement pictures.  Your son is absolutely adorable, btw.

The only picture where it looks like you even have a remotely double chin is the one with you behind your SO, and your chin angled down.  Tilt your chin like that, and most people will look like they have a double chin.

I don’t think your face looks round, fat, or pig-like.  Can’t really blame the photographer for your hair being in your face, if that’s your hairstyle.  But I think it’s cute.  I also don’t think you have an odd look on your face, except for the one photo I mentioned above.  

In the first photo, your son looks like he was startled or surprised.  It’s still a great photo.  Just pointing out that you seem to be critiquing yourself, but not looking for flaws in others, (not that you should be), and I think you’re being hyper-critical of yourself.

I hope you don’t mind, but I tried editing your first photo a bit to look more like what you ‘prefer’ yourself to look. is this more what you’re looking for? obviously your webcam photos are low-quality and grainy, and won’t capture the normal extra shadows everyone normally has.
