Dreamin’ captured by @arabella.blue.portraits 🗝
These studio portraits look like oil paintings when printed. In her studio I had a look at some beautiful photobooks she did recently for some clients, I opened one and went through the images wondering what was the reason behind for them to book a shooting with her @arabella.blue.portraits 💭 she saw me going through the images of a handsome young man, I asked her if he is a model or an actor, she said “no, it was just his dream to have these images for himself to look back at them one day when he grows old...” 👴🏻
This moment was so touching for me.
I will treasure these images as well, so I can look back at them one day and remember that there will always be a fountain of youth: in your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love 💫 #iddavanmunster#arabellablueportraits#perthaustralia#perthphotographer#studioart#portraits_mf#portraitpage#portraitmood#portraitvision#instaportrait
Lets talk about: Instagram ups and downs 💬
Recently, I noticed a drop in statistics, a change not only in who follows me but also in who I follow. But...do I really care?
How often do you find yourself checking your follower count, updating the posts to see how many comments and likes it got? How productive do you feel when you do that? It’s a sad truth that numbers got so important here. Being so focused on your follower growth isn’t productive at all.
While Instagram trends and algorithms come and go, having its ups and downs, ultimately it’s about the humans behind it, about the depth of connection with your community, and not its width. I met so many wonderful people and built strong relations and collaborations through my social media accounts and you probably did too. And that what matters the most to me! Instead of getting confused and frustrated by things out of our control, I’m here just to inspire people, share my passion for fashion, travel and all the most beautiful things in life 🙌🏼✨
Remember to focus on human connection instead of numbers. You could be more successful at converting and monetizing a community of 1000 than a community of 100,000. Honor where you’re at and make the best of it!
