Special Moment – Lost Tooth- Katy Houston Photographer


When Little Miss S (and no, S doesn’t stand for SASS) lost her first tooth, her mom rushed her right over to my studio for an impromptu  photo shoot to commemorate the occasion.8F9A9715

Teeth or none, this gal is such a HAM!  Check out all of these goof-ball expression.


Back when I was a kid, the Tooth Fairy would deliver exactly 41 cents for a tooth.  Yep.. ONE EACH… a penny, nickel, dime, and quarter.

 I never managed to convince my mother that we were getting short changed at our house on Shell Street in Midland Texas.  Even back in THE DAY….  Even in the OLDEN DAYS…  other kids in the old hometown earned at least a dollar for each pearly white.  Some even bragged of $5 bills.

Since this was Miss S’ s first lost tooth, she hadn’t t had time to establish a market value yet, but I’ll bet it was more than 41 cents….

Goodness … with a smile like this,  she will probably be able to fund her college education by the time she gets down to her wisdom teeth.


 Anything that happens TODAY makes TODAY a SPECIAL DAY — and it’s the little stuff that you’ll remember years from now, especially if you’ve got great photographs to jog your memory.

Don’t forget to commemorate those special occasions!

Do it yourself, or let me help.

You’ll be glad you did.
