Installing shower door on tiles that are out of plane

I am trying to install a shower door over a new tile job and the tiles are somewhat out of plane on their faces. They are generally okay, but some are off by up to about 1/4" in the worst areas. The tiles are really "organic" looking... wavy edged, with a very mottled front and are cut off at different lengths, which is maybe the first contributer. The second being that they are just sort of installed that way and aren't laying very flat to each other. I am helping my sister out and have only installed a shower door once before. Any advice for how to make this look as good possible? Thanks!

Welcome, John.

A couple photos of the jamb areas would certainly be helpful.

Do you know what's behind the tiles?

I will be there Friday and can take some photos, or ask her tomorrow to send me some sooner. Behind the tiles is Kerdi over greenboard, then unmodified thinset.
