Today I have my first Instagram round-up of my favourite photos lately!! If you follow me on Instagram you will know that I love flat lays and styled shots. They are my favourite thing to do! 🙂
I love cute and colour, and I find that when I look around my home I have so many items that I can use that work well in these types of photos. Ankit sells a lot of items that I love, like these adorable headphones. Aren’t they just too cute?!?
I am a huge fan of Etsy. If you haven’t heard of it before, it is a site where people and small businesses can sell new, used and handmade items. I find so many great pieces of jewelry, greeting cards and downloadables. My favourite find lately is the vinyl backdrops that I use. They are lightweight and easy to store. I ordered mine all in the 3’x3′ size, which seems to be perfect for food photos and flatlays.
Accessories like socks, watches and jewelry are perfect to use to create fun images.
Don’t forget about flowers! They always look great in images or find other props from items around your home. I get asked a lot about the screen saver that I use on my laptop and phone. It is called Fliqlo. I use these cardboard suitcases a lot and they are perfect for storing items in, too.
I love mugs and I have a cupboard that is overflowing. Whenever I see a great mug, I can’t help myself from getting it. Decorative books and kitchen items like colourful bowls are all great items to use in your images.
Don’t forget about cats! Boots makes appearances in my photos and is quite the poser.
Lastly, don’t forget about using food as props. Cupcakes, cookies and other baked goods are perfect to capture before you eat them. I also have several phone cases that make appearances in my images. Fun ones like this are my favourite.
Have a great day and enter the giveaway if you haven’t already.
