My First Photo Shoot With Braces…

I have had my Damon Braces for about 2 months now and am finally getting use to them. Fortunately I have not experienced much pain.  I find the most annoying part of having braces is eating out and the food getting stuck in between your teeth and braces. I now carry a tooth-brush with me everywhere I go and I constantly find myself swishing water around in my mouth to remove any excess food!~

My second visit to the Orthodontist was last Friday and I got great feedback that my teeth are moving rather quickly so we bumped up my appointments from every six weeks to every four.

As you know if you follow me a huge part of my life is designing and fabricating custom couture jewelry.  Doing so I do not always have a model readily available.  I am so used to photographing pieces on myself but as you can imagine once the braces were on I felt incredibly insecure doing so. I decided to work with what I had and photograph the new pieces on myself that I needed to get in the mail and on their way..!

For the first shoot after having my braces on I feel like I did fairly well making them unnoticeable.  The hardest part for me was holding my lips gently over my braces without if being obvious I was trying to cover them.

I am thrilled at the progress I have made with my Damon System Braces and I am truly looking forward to my next visit to the Orthodontist..!
