Spring is here! Hip, hip, hooray! Being the bright and color loving people that we are you might not be surprised that we LOVE spring. The blooms, the warmer temps, and don't forget about fun spring dresses! The season just has Bold & Pop written all over it and how do we celebrate things we love? We Instagram them of course 😉. So today we're combining two things that we love and sharing some spring Instagram styling ideas!
Integrate Flowers into your Background
Take advantage of the flowers blooming in your neighborhood! Whether that's in your own front yard or at a nearby park. Some of our favorite style tips are by holding something in front of the flowers like we did with our business card or you could use another product. Another shot that we like is holding a boutique in front of a wall. Both allow you to incorporate touches of spring into the background of your photos.
Have fun with local murals or street art
Since one of our co-founders lives in NYC, there are A LOT of fun murals and street art that are great for Instagram shots around the city. If you live in a rural area then this option might be a little different, but we love the idea of using interesting walls as backgrounds for Instagram shots. The key is to get outdoors and be creative with what you find whether you just take a simple shot of the wall or use it as a background for a styled shoot.
Add Seasonal Flowers
We're just around the corner from your Instagram feeds being completely saturated with peonies! You know what we're talking about! Adding a bouquet of tulips or daffodils is the perfect way to brighten up any of your styled shots! While you can of course get flowers year-round, we love to take advantage of blooms that are in season. This option is perfect for adding a little bit of life and color to any of your flat-lay styled shots.
Take in Local Sights
Now that the weather is warming up, get out and explore the sights around you! Landscape shots are great to integrate into your Instagram feed to share your neighborhood with your followers. Something we like to do at Bold & Pop is share shots of different places we visit on the weekends when we're out of the office. It can be a nice little break from being "on" for your business full-time. Wherever you live, get out and enjoy the area and have fun with sharing the views with your followers.
Look out for colorful doors & shutters
While we aren't in the office we always have our eyes peeled for cute doors and colorful buildings or shutters. Whether you're a fashion blogger or boutique looking for fun backgrounds for shoots with models, these are two great things to be on the look-out for. The key is finding styles that match your branding and style.
Get Outdoors for Styled Shots
Another simple suggestion we have is just getting outdoors for your styled shots! Stepping outside can give you a whole new perspective with new textures and backgrounds than you have indoors. You can do this by holding an object against a wall like our photo on the right or sharing dimension of a location like our photo on the left. Let your scenery guide how you adapt your shots.
We hope our ideas have inspired you to use the season to your advantage and add a touch of spring to your Instagram feed! If you're looking for more inspiration for types of Instagram shots, enter your email below for our content upgrades to download our "Take Better Pics Instagram Guide"!
