Inspirational and funny quotes always do well on Instagram. Some accounts are solely based on great quotes! But a great mix of inspirational quotes over a pretty photo almost always is a hit.
3. What you ate

Everyone wants to share what they ate, and there is nothing better than a pretty photo of food on Instagram. Especially when done right!
4. What you wore
Mr. said I was looking like a hipster mom with yesterday’s #OOTD. Outfit details on the blog. Come by and see what was thrifted. I am a firm believer in high/low style. Link in profile. #thrifted #momstyle #momfashion #toryburchflats #dolcegabbana #chicbusymom

A photo of your outfit of the day, or even just your shoes is a great idea. People love to see what you are wearing. Especially if it’s stylish!
One of my favorite photo ideas for Instagram is posting a lifestyle photo. Showing what is going on in your life, whether you are at an event, out with your family, or just a photo of your everyday life is a great way to get engagement. It allows your community to learn more about the person behind the photos and get a peak into your life.
6. From Above
Taking and sharing a photo from above makes almost anything look interesting and photo-worthy!

8. Behind the Scenes
People love to feel like they are seeing what goes on behind the scenes to make your business run, to do your photo shoot..your life! Show it to them!
9. The Selfie.
A good selfie will NEVER go out of style on Instagram. The trick, of course, is to do it right!
10. A collage.

On Instagram, you want to post, but not overwhelm and flood your follower’s timelines! Sometimes, a good collage showing all of the events of the last few hours is better than 25 photos flooding your follower’s timelines!
11. Your signature photo. Or what you are known for

What is your account known for? What do you post every week without fail? I know for me, that is a styled coffee photo. So at least once a week, I make it my business to post one.
