Instagram is my favorite social media outlet because I love taking photos. I am infatuated with the beauty around me, and I want to capture and enhance it. Instagram is also one of the most important profiles for moms and bloggers. Moms capture their memories, and bloggers tell their stories. Did you know that blog articles with more images are more likely to be shared? The stat states that articles with photos every 75-100 words were shared twice as much on social media, That means, if you’re a blogger, your images need to be on-point and plenty. Whether you are a mom looking to take better photos of your kids, or a blogger wanting to up your Instagram quality, these are the articles and tips that I found most helpful to improve the quality of my photos.

I also have a ton of my own tips and tricks on taking photos, editing photos, how to connect with brands, the outlook for micro-influencers, and basically the overall guide to building an irresistible and authentic Instagram following in my eBook. Please check it out, I think it will really help you if you want to grow you Instagram and connect with brands, build an audience and make a prettier, more cohesive feed.

Well there ya have it. My little round up of posts that helped me improve my photos and Instagram feed.



I have a very specialized program for postpartum mamas looking to lose weight, keep up their milk supply and heal their bodies. 

So many mamas are having such success with the program, and let me share what they’ve said:

“I’m on the 14 day clean eating part and already feel a change.  I love that your program caters to nursing moms. These recipes are boosting my milk supply! Thanks again and can’t wait to use the new app!”

“As far as counting calories, yes that was so helpful!… it was an eye opener…But your concept of reducing ever so slightly and monitoring milk supply was so helpful! I have lost 6lbs-yay!- and have 12 more to go!  I am encouraged for sure because it is usually not until  I’m done nursing that I’m able to lose weight. So I’m all in for hopefully the rest of my life-on clean eating like this and exercise! Thanks so much for your help!!”

“Feeling GREAT on this program!!! It’s unbelievable how eating clean makes such a difference. Let me rephrase that…it’s amazing the difference eating nutrient dense foods makes! My skin is glowing and I’m already shedding pounds! I also tried the first workout today and did well although I had to modify a bit and omit the backwards burpee (I had cesarean just over a month ago and don’t quite feel ready for that exercise just yet but I will get there). Loving this plan! Thank you SO MUCH for tour help!”

“The few changes I’ve made to diet per your instructions is already helping lower my sweet cravings. I’m sure I’ll notice an even bigger difference when I get stricter. This week has been great as I feel better, have already lost 2#, and haven’t seen a drop in milk supply which was my biggest concern. I look forward to starting the workouts tonight!”

“The baby steps have been super helpful including writing down everything I ate…Another 5 days would be amazing, I was thinking yesterday what am I going to do after the 5 days are finished. You have been incredibly helpful!! I am so appreciative!!!”

My program focuses on specialized nutrition for breastfeeding moms, recipes, meal plans, grocery lists, a new Ab Rehab + Pelvic Floor Restore program, and a new video on grocery shopping and batch cooking for healthy eating after the meal plan.

      I finally figured out remote shooting, where I can use the cannon app on my phone, and see what I’m shooting now, it’s great!

      The tripod is so fun! I need to be better about setting mine up while we are on the go because we could get so many fun shots!
