Looking for help with your Instagram?
You’ve come to the right place!
If you’re looking to grow your Instagram, create the best images you can to find & engage with your true audience, you’re in the right place.
I’m not one of those corporate ‘social media experts’.
I’m a photographer and a creative with an analytical mind and a tendency towards obsessive interests. That’s how I grew my Instagram account to over 200k followers and counting. That’s how I’ve helped my clients make it happen too.
I want to share with you not only the how, but the why. We’ll focus as much on the creative process and producing beautiful, emotive, expressive content as any tips, strategies and tricks. Because it takes both of these to really stand out and make it big. It takes your heart and your mind – and I promise you, it’s worth the effort.

Instagram is the fastest growing of all social media platforms, with 400 million monthly active users worldwide – half of whom are under the age of twenty-five. While some use the app as a personal networking tool, many also use it to build their creative business endeavours; whether in food and drink or fashion and lifestyle.
Hashtag Authentic draws on the lessons I’ve learned over the past five years to provide you with tips, advice and guidance on how to turn their personal Instagram account into a profitable creative outlet. From visual storytelling and improving photography skills to archiving day-to-day life and changing the work/life balance, this book is both an inspiring manual and an interactive tool for finding an online voice, growing a tribe and becoming an influencer.

“My average like per post has doubled, I am achieving the followers goal that I set myself for each week and I am getting messages from people with accounts of 30k+ followers enquiring about my products and collaborations. But most importantly I’ve “meet” a lot of lovely people who have helped me along the way and given me more confidence as a maker/designer/instagrammer.” – Alicia
