Hello!

NATURAL PHOTOS ARE THE BEST

Like this one.

The worst feeling ever is asking someone to take photos for the grid and then getting cold feet immediately after. Ask someone you trust, I ask my best friends Maddie and Marty to take my photos because I feel like I can be a tad silly when they are snapping.

If you don’t have anyone to take photos for you, most phones have a self-timer front facing mode so you can quickly snap a few pics and go!

Honestly, they look the best if they’re natural and they perform the best too! Especially if you hashtag it right too! Vix Meldrew aka the queen of blogging resources has made a list of all the essential and best-performing hashtags suited to your grid! You can find it on her site!

If you don’t have the picture perfect background to hand, that’s fine. Don’t stress. Natural surroundings are key, it makes your photo more unique, even though if you do find a great background, grab it!

IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT THE FULL LENGTH PHOTO

If you’re a bit shy about showing your full body, don’t worry.

You can always do a seated, half posed photo like this one from my trip to Amsterdam. It’s simple and you can still see most of the outfit!

See you on Friday!

Lots of love

      You don’t need a big fancy camera to take photos of flatlays or OOTD shots – your phone will do! If you’re struggling for captions, head to pinterest they have some good ones!
