How to Take Great Instagram Photos with Kelly Mindell

So excited to be chatting with Kelly from Studio DIY today. Kelly is a lot of things, but mostly she is an Instagram Goddess. She rocks her selfies harder than anyone I know (see here). Not in the, “I’m already famous and have a zillion followers” type of way – but instead, posting the best photos of herself and her parties daily.

So today she’s sharing with us just how she got THIS comfortable in front of the camera and how we can all take gorgeous and colorful photos for social media at every birthday, vacation, family photo shoot – really for any reason at all.

Because, if we are honest if it’s not shared socially… did it really happen?

You’ve got to hear the tips – they are genius! Here’s a little sneak peak…
