Faces are scary!

So the problem I think you're having is that your left brain keeps telling you that it's a face which is interfering with your right brain telling you about the shapes your hand is supposed to be putting down. Drawing from photos is actually a really hard way to learn how to draw because of this. Try drawing the shapes of objects around you and then if you can convince somebody to sit still for you for a bit try drawing them. Don't worry about the picture looking like the person, just concentrate on faithfully transfering the shapes your eye sees to the page.

I'm sure you're right! That's certainly what it feels like, that the wrong part of my brain is taking over. But I hadn't thought that drawing from a photo would cause that. Objects are pretty easy to draw, so maybe you're right, I just need a really patient subject. :)
