Do It Yourself :
1. Close your eyes
2. Clear your mind
3. Listen to your heart
4. Catch your inner smile
5. Take it out


A little thing like a simple smile is somewhat magic.

I fell in love with you because the smile on your face lets me know that you need me...

Everything about this is magic!
I love the pose and the warmth in this picture!!!
Your smile is beautiful!!!
The bracelets really tie stuff together and are not a big distraction, although your shirt seems to take away from the rest of the picture. I really wish your shorts were a bit longer, I can barely see them peeking from under your shirt.
I LOOOOOVE The Police, even though they are totally not my time. (Since I am a late 90's child) I also do wish your eyes were OPEN. That is one of my greatest pet peeves, (no offence.) I love to see the model's eyes, they tell a story to me!

Overall; If someone told me to rate this picture from a 1 - 10 scale, I'd pick about a 7 or 8!!! (Which is very good, at least to myself lol) I love it!!!!
What do you think?

Awww..... You look like a princess. The crown just completes it!!
The colors blend together so greatly, and your hair, your smile, everything just completes the look. You look as if you have your iPod on and your jaming out. You look so flawless and complete.
The background, since it is so soft and subtle colors, only adds to the model. You're outfit sticks out like a sore thumb. But that's ok, your outfit is adorable!
The lighting in the room adds to the overall complexion of, well, everything. The angle is great, beacause you are not facing the camera head on. I love it.
