#thecreativemonth May

As we head into the final Spring month, my mind is totally focused on Spring inspired photography right now. I don’t think my Instagram Feed has ever been so colourful!

Seasonal Hashtags to use this month!

#stylingtheseasons – Think florals, everything Spring and Summer. Get outdoors, capture what’s above you. Or bring the outdoors in. Floral flatlays and still lifes.

#tfispring – For everything and anything Spring.

#savourtheseasonalshift – As the seasons turn into one another. Those beautiful moments.

#ourchildhoodsummer – A brand new hashtag created by me! It’s one to celebrate those beautiful days where you explore outdoors, have picnics in the garden, go fly a kite. Things that are simple but that make those childhood memories. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

#mytinydoodles – A tag created by @rhiannaoliviab a simple way to add a little bit of something special to your photos! A few doodles can really make the photo! A great hashtag for a bit of fun!

#normalisbrilliant – A tag created by @oliphantum celebrating those moments in everyday life.

Instagram Inspiration

This month I’ve been hugely inspired by the following accounts. You can definitely see why as their photographs are just beautiful!

@hannahargyle – Simple yet stunning photography. She nails all types of images with her beautifully clean and crisp style!

@five_make_a_home – The most beautiful seasonal feed. Stunning photographs and beautifully curated grid!

@_charlieswift – A creative business mentor who takes some beautifully creative photographs as well as sharing everyday motherhood. Also part of a wonderful podcast duo!

Photography Prompts

So part of #thecreativemonth is sharing five prompts. If you’re stuck for what to photograph and you need little inspiration then look no further. I would love you to use #thecreativemonth on your posts and next month I will share my favourites in this email and on my blog. This month’s prompts are:

A breath of fresh air – Get outside. Photograph yourself, your children. Photograph the flowers or your feet on the grass.

A pop of colour – Find the contrast. Bright pink flowers against a white wall. A bright white ice lolly against a bright blue sky.

A soak in the tub – Make it pretty with flowers for you or your littles. Capture the setup of a relaxing bath.

Capture the mess – Find beauty in chaos. A dirty sink full of flowers. Dirty hands from the garden. Sticky faces from ice lollies. Embrace the mess.

Faceless portrait – Get creative with props. Take a perspective shot with carefully placed flowers. Turn your back to the camera. Or capture one side.
