INSTAGRAM PHOTO PROP IDEAS!

Hello everyone,



Nowadays we are fortune enough because we can fully express our creativity through one of many platforms, my favorite being Instagram. You have an idea that keeps you awake at night. You execute it just like you saw it inside. You see it blossom right in front of you. You feel satisfied of your hard work. Then you move on, repeat the same process with a newfound idea! 
That's why I love Instagram... visuals made to inspire, take you back to a moment in life of happiness, of a memorable time, of beauty. Each photo tells a story of my life! Not only that, but we also get to connect with one another and share the joys which make us who we are.

This is where you have full control of what message you want to spread out into the world. For me, that's positivity, something colorful and fun to hopefully brighten-up your day!!!🌞

Just follow your heart and create what speaks to you the most. If you're running low on ideas, I've got some for you. Use different kind of props you can easily find in your home to make your shots stand-out. Anything from an umbrella to holding a cup of coffee... Yep, I can already see your feed getting some major LOVE! 💗    

1. Watermelon 


              
With summer here, I'm sure you're eating lots more fruits. Next time, before you devour your watermelon, grab a slice for a few photos...this is the most photogenic summer fruit 😜 Trust me!

Having a fruit in your Insta-pics will give everyone those fun, summer vibes and I'm sure lots of likes.
The one thing I was most excited for after taking this capture was the part where I ate the slice. Good Times! 

Using a fruit is one of the easiest ways to get creative on Instagram without having to do too much other than buying a couple of fruits and posing with them. How many of you have been inspired with a fruit photo before? 

2. Flowers

Leave it up to a bouquet of flowers to make someone's day. Not only in person, but also in an Instagram photo. I know I love receiving... haha.... I mean, seeing any type of flowers in photos. It makes me smile and think of only beautiful things. That's one simple way to spread joy to the world not only on Christmas! 

When I see flowers I think of all the million photos I want to take with them. What can I do when I was born a flower child? LOL! It would be a dream to photograph in an endless field of flowers. I'm keeping my eyes wide open!

3. Lollipop


   
Sweets are meant to be enjoyed, but because my mind is always thinking of fun ideas to make my Instagram photos more creative, I don't let anyone touch my lollipops.😂 Extra points if you match the color of your lollipop!

Got to love a prop like this because it can take you back to your childhood days when sweets were your breakfast and dinner... and the best part is you could get away with it. Now it's all about watching what you eat and forgetting once in a while to enjoy these kind of treats. I mean, who knew there would be so many crazy diets?! 

4. Bubblegum 


        
Here is where the fun begins because it can take you countless tries to form a big enough bubblegum for the perfect shot. That's exactly how many it took me, but I still remember the laughs my photographer and I had. And in the end there were a few good captures to choose from. It was a BLAST! That's why I enjoy creating a visual in my mind and later working in making it come to life. What do you love most about Instagram?

Imagine this photo without the bubblegum. I know it would be a bit too plain for my liking and my personality. Having some kind of prop in your photos definitely makes them more playful and easier for you to express yourself. 

5. Magazine 


    
My last suggestion would be to grab any magazine or newspaper you have sitting around at home and use it as a prop. Hold it by your side or open it up in front of you as if you are reading it. It really adds a cool, casual vibe to your photo. It's another great way to make your Instagram feed stand-out.

I even love the shots where the magazine is part of a flatlay with a cup of coffee and jewelry pieces surrounding it. I don't know why, but it gives me all the feels....must be the strong coffee! 

Now I would love to hear from you...what are some ways you like to make your Instagram photos more fun and what do you think of my photo prop ideas? Which prop would you love to photograph with next?

  14. I have a love/hate relationship with IG. I like the idea of it and the creativity so many people put in to their accounts, but I hate the who owns it now FB and I hate FB'S founder and it's VP. I also hate all the faking on IG from fake comments, fake likes. to fake followers to faking trips etc, and the ever changing algorithm and how it is designed to keep people on the platform 24/7. Awful.

    But the creative part is still good and your prop tips are excellent and can be applied to all forms of photograph! A good prop can take a good photo and make it a great photo.

  25. These are wonderful ideas - you've started the gears in my head turning and I know I'm getting a new camera for my birthday this year - can't wait to try some of them out (I should practice with my cell phone now). The fruit is a wonderful idea. I hate showing my face on camera, so the bubblegum one is absolutely perfect (I'm getting ready to buy a big floppy hat, too). And the lollipop! I'm thinking about all kinds of the big candies they sell in the specialty candy stores! Thank you for the inspiration and, as always, your photos are fabulous, but how could they be anything else with such a gorgeous and creative subject?
