Awkward looking teeth

Waiting for my 3rd adjustment on Nov 10!
It has been over three months since i have had braces and i'm being treated for bimaxillary protrusion. Now it is very awkward to smile for photos. As the ortho is pulling back my teeth, he first pulls my canines back before the incisors. so now, there is a huge gap between incisor and canine, which makes it look very awkward.
It's rather funny to look at myself in photos since when i smile nowadays, it looks like i have only 4 front teeth. It's not obvious here since i'm smiling as wide as i can to show all my front teeth. I need to find a new smile technique. I look like I have a monkey mouth when i close my mouth so I really don't know how else to smile but to show my teeth. I know i'm just whining and that this time will come to pass and things could only get better. but i can't wait for this to be over. lol!
Any of you had gone through a similar experience? Did it take very long to close the gap?
Like i always joke, now that the canines have started to disappear when i smile, my friends and i call it the negative vampire look since my canines are missing. lol
can't wait for more progress.
