Something I get questions and comments on quite often is how I keep my feed so cohesive. I wrote this post about the technical side of how I make everything flow including what apps I use. Today I wanted to focus on something completely different but probably answers the question better. It really comes down to inspiration! I have also talked about how I find my inspiration in this post, but today I want to go into more detail.
I am the type of person that is constantly looking for inspiration. Since I am a very creative person beautiful things energize me. Inspiration can come in so many different forms. As a visual person, it’s usually found in my environment. Pinterest, Instagram and other blogs are all great sources of inspiration but my favorite source is always Mother Nature.
I promise I’m getting back to the question of how I create a cohesive feed! I just want you to understand my process. When I am inspired by something it becomes very much ingrained in everything I do. For example, I have been so inspired by all of the beautiful wildflowers that line the highway on my way to work. There is a patch of the brightest yellow flowers in the middle of a beautiful field. Every morning when I pass them, my creative juices run wild. That little yellow patch is what inspired so much yellow in my feed for the last couple of weeks.
When you are inspired by something, like the yellow flowers, you begin to notice everything around you that either includes the color or compliments it. I picked up this shirt in yellow because I had been so inspired by the color yellow, and I painted my nails the same shade (seen here). Because I share my life as most people do these days, in an Instagram feed, the natural flow appears in my pictures.
Another great way to have cohesion with your photographs is to keep your backgrounds similar. Since I am such a flower and nature lover, you’ll find that most of my locations involve these things. Some people have more of an edgy, street style vibe so you might see more urban, downtown locations. It’s all about finding what works for you!
I hope this gives you a little inspiration to really notice your surroundings and be creative. Even if you don’t have a blog, it’s so important to stay inspired. Whether your passion is fashion, your home or a creative hobby, inspiration can come from so many places, we just have to be paying attention! xo Bryn
