Instagram Success

Instagram is my favorite form of social media. Facebook and I broke up a long time ago and I have to say that I don't even notice. (OK, OK, sometimes I think I might be missing out on certain groups but I think the trend is going to be less is more and more people will be leaving FB). As someone who has been practicing photography professionally for the past six years, I've really discovered at least two things that I love photographing and how much fun Instagram is as an outlet. I love flowers. This was a surprising realization. And I love people. Tangent: I haven't been photographing people as much lately because of the baby and trying to not spread my focus so thin but I really want to get back into photographing people specifically in the creative field, i.e: bloggers and instagrammers and also families with a documentary/lifestyle approach.

Back to the point, Instagram. I love it! I love the challenge of finding the perfect subject to blend with my feed to create a cohesive look and be meaningful. The above picture was taken on Valentine's weekend at Pike Place Market. Tulips were just starting to bloom.

I was flattered to know that so many people liked this photo. My first big success using Instagram and something that brought me a lot of joy.

Like I say in my little tagline over there on the right, I don't really know what I'm doing (with life), I'm just trying to figure it out. Like I heard Goldie Hawn once say at a seminar, I just want to be happy.
