I’ve talked about Instagram a little bit here on the blog, but I realized that I’ve mostly talked about how to utilize it for your business. The main reason I started an Instagram a couple of years ago was really just for fun. I keep the list of people that I follow pretty small because I don’t really have time to follow too many people, but I follow all kinds of different pages from photographers to pets! Here are a few of my favorite accounts that you should check out and give a follow if you’re interested!
1. Appetite Paper – @appetitepaper
Rachael is so crafty! She makes the prettiest florals…from paper! They look so realistic and, I can personally attest that her tutorials are very simple to follow. Her posts always brighten my day!
2. Three Fifteen Design @ravynstadick
Ravyn designed my current website (and the last one, too!) and I’ve been following her ever since we first “met” via the internet a couple of years ago. The snippets she posts of things she’s working on for her clients are always so much fun to see. I love her modern, funky style.
3. Sincerely Amy Designs – @sincerelyamydesigns
Amy is one of my favorite calligraphers out there, so it’s no wonder her Instagram is also one of my favorites to follow! She posts bits and pieces of different projects she’s working on and they’re so beautiful! I look forward to seeing her posts in my feed! Another thing I really love about Amy is how vulnerable and honest she is. She’s one of the least pretentious people out there, and her take on things is always so refreshing.
4. Smushball – @smushball
Of course, if you know me, you know that this list wouldn’t be complete without a cat. Smushball is one of the cutest cats I’ve ever seen. Maybe THE cutest besides Lucy. She has over 800k followers, so chances are, you have either heard of her or follow her already. I highly suggest following an animal or two on Instagram…it’s a great way to break up all of the perfectly styled-ness that Instagram can portray.
5. Joe Donnelly – @joedonnellyfit
I started following Joe’s account because John suggested I check him out. He’s a former NFL player who posts lots of workouts, tips, etc. His workouts are SO HARD. If you’re into IIFYM (If it fits your macros) and hardcore workouts, then you should give his account a follow!
6. Gossamer Vintage @shopgossamer
Gossamer’s Instagram account is one of the most beautiful accounts I follow. She finds the most incredible vintage clothing pieces, fixes them up, and sells them in her store. Her Instagram showcases many of these finds, and I always love seeing the newest treasure to be added to the shop!
7. Ashley Goodwin @Agoodwin1
I wasn’t going to add any photographers to the list, because let’s be real, most of the photographers on Instagram have stunning accounts. Ashley’s feed is in my list of top faves because she routinely shares the most bright, colorful film photos. I love that her feed is so full of color! It’s so lively, checking it out feels like going to a party! She also lives in Hawaii and shares donut photos from time to time, so you know that doesn’t hurt how I feel about her 😉
8. Indie Film Lab – @indiefilmlab
Again, I wasn’t going to add photographers to the list, but technically Indie Film Lab’s account is comprised of the work of a bunch of photographers. I started following Indie Film Lab because I use them for my personal film work. I love that they share things that their clients photographed that they’ve scanned! If you are inspired by film photography, I would highly recommend taking a peek at their feed and following along, because they’re always sharing something awesome!
