Brace Face, Metal Mouth, and Freakin' Adorable

Bria had an early release day today, so when she got home things were a little more laid-back than they usually are when she steps off of the bus. So I thought, HEY! Let's do a little photoshoot!

Bria was cool with it.

ONE
But, she kept smiling with her mouth closed.

"Bria!"  I said, "Smile normally--I want some pictures of your new braces."


TWO
She just rolled her eyes at me and told me she doesn't smile with her mouth open for pictures anymore thankyouverymuch.

"But, you look adorable with your braces on!"


THREE
"No, I don't!  I look weeeeeiiiird with them on!"

"Come on.  Just a couple pictures with normal smiles?"


FOUR
"Okay.  But just a little one."

"Oh, you can do better than that...I can hardly see your teeth!"




"FINE!"

"Bria....humor me, please!"


SIX
Now she's just laughing at me.

But the joke's on her, because laughter leads to the best smiles of all.


SEVEN
(And come on....she's totally adorable, is she not?)(And so grown up looking, too.)(Today I was just looking at some photos from the cruise last January and I can't believe how much she's changed over the course of one year...)

But she is still totally adorable.

  11. Bria is even cuter with her braces on. The blue beanie matches her metal mouth quite nicely. I'm into people as photography subjects. Great job with the shoot!
