When I get braces, will I need to get teeth pulled out? (Photo)

I'm getting braces for obvious reasons ... ( I'll post pictures below ) but I would like to know what treatment I'll need to get that perfect smile? And will I need any teeth pulled out?

Extraction of Teeth

There are many factors to consider when determining if someone needs teeth extracted for orthodontic treatment.  Typically, an evaluation of all diagnostic records (i.e. X-rays, photos, and models) is necessary.  From the photos that you have provided, it is unclear as to whether or not extractions are needed.
