If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, thank you! I sure love that you follow along on my journey to always improve my craft and offer some of the best images around…I love the families, children and special events I get invited into. I never take it lightly that my clients invite me to peek into their lives in such a special way. Something you may not realize is that I showcase different images on Facebook than I do on Instagram. I approach them slightly differently. My Facebook images are a little more traditional, and usually involve smiling faces looking at the camera and images portraying family togetherness. The images posted to Instagram, however, are more adventurous with an unique and out-of-the-box point of view. At least, I hope they do.
I thought it would be fun to highlight some of my favorite images from my Instagram account here, in case you missed them. You will see a lot of my personal work, but plenty of client photos as well. Many of these where shot on my SLR and several were shot on the iPhone. No matter the medium, many have very specific memories attached to them, and isn’t that the point? That is probably why they are my favorite, because they mean so much to me. When you have pictures that create special memories, it makes it easier to share them with your followers. You’re able to speak from the heart when it comes to writing your caption, and can help people to understand why it means so much. Of course, none of my exposure would be made possible without having a decent follower base. Luckily, I’ve been able to grow this on my own, but I know that some professionals decide to enlist the help of an organic growth service like nitreo to help them when it comes to expanding their account. Now, this should be welcomed more as it’s every persons dream to have a large following because there wouldn’t be any point in having a profile otherwise, would there? Either way, it’s good, and it allows you to share your work with more people and if it means that you get more clients because of it, then it’s a win-win.
