A Week on Instagram #10

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed a huge change in the style of my photos over the past couple of weeks. Instead of random (and usually crap!) snaps from my iPhone, they’re much more considered, and hopefully, much prettier!

Almost none of my photos recently have been ‘live’ ones – in fact, most of them were taken last year or earlier this year, but they are all photos that I am proud of. Instagram is by far my favourite social media platform, and yet it is the one I didn’t take as much care over. As well as sharing images with followers, I also want it to be something nice for me to look back on, something pretty. That is the sort of aim I’m going for from now on. It will still be our lives, but just the nicer photos. That’s not to say it’s not ‘real’ – they’ll probably be some photos of the kids looking like they’ve been dragged through a hedge backwards, and things like that, but the actual quality of my photos will be better and a bit more curated.

Most of them (all of them!) are outdoors photos so far because that seems to be where I take better photos. I understand lighting and angles much better outdoors. However, I am practising taking photos indoors, and, hopefully, you will see them pop up on my feed soon!

So, for those of you who don’t follow me on Instagram, here are a few snaps from the past week.

My biggest boy is in his last week of reception. This year has gone incredibly quickly!

This is a throwback from last year – the National Memorial Arboretum. It’s such a beautiful, peaceful place.

Playing on the beach in Tenby last year. They keep asking when we can back to the ‘seaside with the coloured houses’.

I really, really hate birds, but I love peacocks. Their tails/feathers are so beautiful,and colourful.

  1. Oh wow, these photos are beautiful! I started to take a bit more care over Instagram earlier in the year, although my photos are still mainly from my phone. My Instagram following built a lot easier when I started to use nicer photos.
