See that picture? It's one of the worst pictures I've ever taken. It is responsible for my fake smile now. I was 13 years old. The photographer said something like "Think about the boys" and I made a sarcastic face. That disgusting photo is the result.
I spent the entire summer after my 8th grade year standing in the bathroom in front of the mirror with my eyes closed. I'd smile and then look at my face. Which is how I ended up taking one of the best pictures I've ever taken (IMO).
See what a couple of months of obsessive fake smiling can do for a girl? Oh, and the removal of braces, LOL. ;-)
Enjoy the big hair and floral print of the late 80s!
