You wouldn’t know it from glancing at our Instagram feed, but I completely adore instagram! I find so much inspiration in it for life as well as work – but you’ll notice the lack of posts on our feed and perhaps presume we’re not that bothered. The opposite is true, we bother too much! We’re complete perfectionists about how the feed needs to look – is it as perfect as your website portfolio or can it include little cute phone pictures you got of the dog doing something too cute?
It can be so confusing which way to go as a creative and a business. We are all about the pretty – and we wanted to keep our instagram perfectly curated to absolutely just that – pretty. Then this niggled at us a lot – because there is so much more of you, what you do, what your life is about and your style. You want to share personality too! We want to connect with couples who have personality and express it in their stylish flair!
Something which is so important to my life is Authenticity, and I strive to be authentically me in everything I do. But seriously though, we are busy living life and sometimes that doesn’t look perfect or pretty. I’ve made myself feel so bad because it doesn’t. I’ve neglected to share enough of ourselves and make those connections because it doesn’t.
Those super pretty feeds we adore so much – they aren’t real. They are curated.
We all know and understand that. We accept that and it’s there to inspire us, bring pretty moments into our day and for us to say, “Oh I love that, I’m going to read that book, try making that recipe, visit that place…” There’s an art and skill to creating an instagram feed which reflects your style and work, updates people on what you’re up to and also has some fun sprinkled in there too. That’s what we are going to aim for. It won’t be perfect. It will still be pretty, but it will share more of us and connect with people, because that is what we are about –
Art + Autenticity as well as Pretty + Personality.
