Photograph smile


Long story short: Taking my own pictures for Christmas cards this year because I can’t be arsed to do the studio portrait thing. I’m no accomplished shutterbug but even I can capture some snaps that are decent enough to illustrate what our children currently look like.

I had Madalyn (a.k.a. “the easy one”) out for her pictures over the weekend and I got some I think I can work with but I’m having trouble being objective and choosing the best one so I thought I’d put it to a vote.

What I’m looking for here is the one that looks nicest in terms of her smile and the framing. I can tweak the sharpness and brightness somewhat so those are less of a factor.

Here are the candidates. The letter options in the poll are respective to the photo’s position; however, you can also mouse over each pic and there will be a drop-down box that says “Option (letter)”.

What say you, sirs?


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. Picked F because I really like the closeup shot. I seems the most natural smile-wise and it’s super pretty!

    B came in second. Good smile in that one as well, and it works if you’re looking for a full body shot. 🙂

  2. I like the first one. She is beautiful. She looks so grown up in these pictures. If I didn’t know better I would think she was a few years older than she actuallly is.
