Smile for the camera, handsome!

I met Lance nearly five years ago, and in our time together, we have taken many photos. Goodbye pictures at the airport during our years of long-distance dating, silly photos of trying to fly kites on the beach, posed photos with princesses, goofy pictures at Halloween, family photos at the holidays—we’ve run the snapshot gamut.

In all of those photos, there’s one thing I’ve learned about Lance: He needs a reason to smile. Sure, sometimes he can smile on command; other times, when we’re on take six because my bangs keep blowing into my eyes, he needs a reason to crack that grin I adore. It’s at those times that I pull out the following:

  • References to It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Archer, and New Girl
  • Top-notch inside jokes
  • Bribes
  • Poor attempts at impersonations
  • A poke to the side

But nothing—and I repeat, nothing—is as effective as genuinely having fun… which we recently did during our shoot with the spectacular Sarah Crowder. Wanna see?

And if that doesn’t work, there’s always the bees.

Thanks for always smiling for me, Lance.
