Instagram is one of those silly little apps I just can’t get enough of. It’s a fast way to share a glimpse into my life, and makes me feel a little Emilia Jane-ish. No, instagram does NOT make us professional photographers, but it definitely adds a different element to photo capturing for us amateurs.
- Instead of taking photos directly in the Instagram app, take them on your camera’s photo app first, where you have more control over focus, zoom and contrast, THEN import the photo into Instagram to add filters etc.
- Hashtags can help to categorize your images, and help others discover them… BUT there is such a thing as #toomuch, and you don’t want to drown an image in unrelated hashtags
- Babies and puppies. In the words of my hilarious client, “A picture’s worth a thousand words, so we don’t need a thousand pictures of the same subject” …even if it’s your favorite subject
- Document your life and show off your special moments by posting pictures you’re proud of, and your followers will “like” them too ;)

Have a fab Sunday!
Can’t wait to see what’s fresh for fall!
Every February and August I attend MAGIC and PROJECT apparel shows to purchase inventory for Bonnie & Clyde.
The only thing between Vegas and I, is 48 hours. I have a fully booked 12 hour day tomorrow, followed by two on-site weddings and a pedi on Saturday.
Be sure to stay tuned and follow YourStylistAJ on instagram and facebook for trend updates from the busiest apparel show in the country.
Woah. Mother’s Day is THIS Sunday!
This amazing gift idea is personalized and one of a kind. These pillows are hand stitched and made in Washington D.C.! Due to popular demand, you can’t get them in time for Mother’s Day, BUT order by next week and have yours for Father’s Day! Click the photos above, log in with Instagram, and order your pillow. 1,2,3… pretty foolproof!
As far as last minute Mother’s Day solutions… my mom reads this blog so I can’t spill my secret, but feel free to contact me through the contact page to find out what my mom’s getting, and yours would love too!
