As for my senior photo, at the time I absolutely loved it.

It was the best picture that had ever been taken of me and I was on top of the world.

I remember posting an Instagram of it right after I got the pictures back and thinking that it was going to get so many likes, and then it didn't and I was heartbroken. Also, thank God I learned how to tweeze." "I hated my freshman year photo.

Besides the clearer skin and better kept hair, I see a 'happier me' in my senior year picture.

I see a sense of confidence in that picture, which I think relates to how I felt at the time." "I loved my curly hair, but sometimes I didn't know how to handle it and I guess picture day freshman year was one of those times.

Looking at the two, I feel like I haven't aged at all and that makes me a little sad.""I loved my freshman year photos a lot (at the time), but looking back, I think it's corny, and I hate the dress. I was just in a rush to finally get out of high school and I didn't put much thought into them.

I still think they're corny, but I remember being happy when I took them.

While you might not love looking back on your freshman year photo (you still hadn't quite figured out how to style your hair yet... ), you have to admit it's pretty incredible to see the difference between that and your senior year photo.

A "I absolutely hated my freshman photo and loved my senior portrait.I had just gotten my braces off and it's safe to say that I was feelin' myself.I even straightened my hair for the picture and put on makeup so I thought that it was one of my best pictures.Looking back, I still hate my freshman year pic, but it's funny to see how much I changed over four years. ""When I got my picture from freshman year, I really didn't like it and was like, why would my parents order this?!Looking back, I wish I had used lip balm for my freshman year picture, but honestly, I feel like I was just a cute, awkward, brace-faced freshman.For my senior portrait, I liked it enough to choose it out of a bunch of pictures that were taken, but I wasn't crazy about how my hair looked.""I thought both photos looked great at the time.
