Photography: Red and Pink Theme

February 5, 2019

The month of February usually revolves around a lot of pink and red, as Valentine’s Day is a huge inspiration. Personally, I take the stance of not really caring too much for Valentine’s Day. It’s not because I’m single, so much as it is the fact that regardless on if you are in a relationship or not, you should be showing your love for the ones you care about in your life all year.

However, there are a couple of good things that come from Valentine’s Day. One, being that the very next day, usually all the Valentine’s Day chocolate is 50% off. Two, I love the color scheme for Valentine’s Day. Usually, we see the usual red, pink, and white in many different shades. Or we will see the common pastels that we will see again once Easter comes around.

My Pink & Red Photos

I am very much an amateur photographer, and I have a long way to go. However, I thought I would share some of my favorite pink and red things that I have taken photos of over the past couple years.

Link to my Love Themed Pinterest board – Red & Pink

My latest project on Pinterest is my LOVE board. The goal is to stick to my favorite pink and/or red photographs and put them together to create another great inspirational board. My favorites are Holiday boards or Home Decor boards. However, I do appreciate color themed boards, because sometimes it can be incredibly satisfying and inspirational to see a collection of the same color in one space. With that in mind, some of my other favorite inspirational boards are below, and I have them linked to their respective Pinterest creators.

What are some of your favorite Pink and Red themed boards on Pinterest? If you have color-themed boards of your own, be sure to share them below. I need some new ones to follow. Also, if you have a color-themed Instagram, I would love to see that too.

I’m really enjoying my Pinterest right now, and I have been putting in a lot of work on developing it. This time last year I had averaged about 100,000 monthly views, and I now average about 2.8 million monthly views on my Pinterest.

New Instagram Theme for July

July 13, 2018
Changing My Instagram Theme

If you have been following me for a while(here or on Instagram), you know that I love working with my Instagram. I love making changes and see the new flow of a new theme change. I am also pretty passionate about photography, mine, and other peoples. With that in mind I decided that for the month of July, I will be trying out a new Instagram theme. Who knows, I might not like it and decide to change it again in August, or it could become a more permanent thing. I also want to note that this change is primarily going on my personal Instagram account, the blog Instagram account will be staying mostly the same. Although, I do plan on trying to make changes on that one once I build it up some more.

My New Instagram Theme

My new theme will be fairly simple, and hopefully easy to keep up with. I don’t know about you all, but one thing that I really don’t like is when it feels more like a struggle to post photos. I like to feel like I’m adding to a piece of art every day, and I want to “want” to post.

Over the past week, I did a trial run for my new theme to give you all an example of what my plan is. So far I am liking the changes, and I’m incorporating a lot of the landscape and nature photos from other sources(such as pexels.com), but I would love to incorporate photos from other photographers on Instagram.

I am playing off of using a diagonal type theme. One thread involves me, either selfies or full-length photos. Then I have two threads of landscape type photos that are on both sides of my selfie thread. Then the fourth thread is more random. The reason why I have the random thread is that I feel like sometimes I want to post something that isn’t just the same as the rest of the photos. I do however plan on sticking to a color theme that is green, white, black, and pink. However, I occasionally will post a pop of color here and there, as long as one of those colors is in the photo as well.

Want your photos to be featured on my Insta?

If you’d like for me to use one of your photos on my Instagram, let me know in the comments below or email me at annaissbusiness@gmail.com. I need the image you’d like me to use, and your Instagram handle. Mine, for example, would be @annamaxwell018 and I would attach the photo, and anything particular you’d like for me to say about your photo in the caption.

30-Day Photo Challenge – Littlebit and Patch

May 31, 2018

Hello everyone!

Another 30-day photo challenge, really? Yes, really. I love photo challenges! Whenever I feel like I need something new to look forward to, a photo challenge(or a writing one) always helps me gather new inspiration from my surroundings. Because I am in the process of creating a theme on my Instagram, I plan on completing this challenge on my Instagram story. I feel like that would be the best way for me to keep track of each day, and not interrupt my attempt to establish a theme on my Instagram feed. Which is currently a mixture of black and white and color(it’s a work in progress, okay?). Below I have a 30-day challenge, and I am using it for June, but you can apply it to other 30-day months if you want.

Instagram Roundup: 3 Boss Lady Bloggers

May 21, 2018

Hello everyone!

I have been scrolling through Instagram a lot lately, and I have come to realize that I follow a lot of hella awesome boss lady bloggers. These three people show up more often than the other people I follow, and with good reason. If you’re new to being a blogger on Instagram, these influencers are perfect inspiration and guidance as you start your journey as a blogger on Instagram. Each of the bloggers I show below fall under lifestyle, travel, fashion, food, or beauty influencers. Even if you aren’t new to the Instagram scene, I would recommend checking these lovely ladies out below, as their photos are incredible.

Craft and Baking Blogger – @sprinklemepinkblog

When I came across this Instagram, I almost couldn’t hit the follow button fast enough! Her photos are so bright and colorful, and all of her baking shots make me want all of the desserts ever in the world. If you are into colorful crafts and desserts, this is the blogger to follow!
