How To Create The Perfect Flatlay Photo

I just want to say ANYONE can be a fashion blogger if it is what they are truly passionate about!  I wanted to put this post out to just kind of show a little insight into what I do and think about when creating my flat-lay photos – (for people looking into how to learn how to take flat-lay photos or just curious to see how its done).  Here are my top tips for creating a successful flatlay:

1. Folding The Clothes Just Right

You can either go with the perfection folding type look or the messy “i just threw this together” kinda look.  But my advice is to pick one and run with it, with the exception of one piece in the layout to be the complete opposite! Example* If its going to be a clean perfectly in line layout throw the shoes at a few different angles to create interest

2. Picking The Right Accessories

Picking the right accessories and knowing when to stop (and when to add), is very important in creating a layout!  Simplicity can be very beautiful but there are some layouts where the more detail the better!

3. Arranging it for the perfect composition

When you are dealing with lots of little bits and pieces in a photo it is important to pay great attention to every detail!  One little piece that isn’t quite in line can taint your whole photo!

4. Adding the Non clothing items

What I mean by this is add in things that aren’t just all about the subject.  If you are doing a layout type photo with food, maybe try adding some cute sunglasses or a bag!

5. Picking the right background and lighting

The two most important tips I could give – If the lighting is terrible or the background is some old carpet your layout photo couldn’t be saved even by all these other tips combined.  Daylight is the best and always pick a nice clean background!

Hey guys!  Sorry I have been sort of AFK on my blog here for almost 2 weeks now!  SO SAD!  I just have been so busy dealing with my Instagram being hacked (all taken care of now), and trying to enjoy the last bits of summer!  I recently got a very very exciting partnership with a company with amazing evening wear and dresses!  The store is called Oh Polly, click HERE if you want to shop these looks below.

This ultra long blush fur coat is going to be heaven for the cold season coming up!  I had some fur coats in my closet that I thought were the softest things in the world, and they didn’t even compare to this coats softness.

This piece that I got from Oh Polly is also one of those things that you have to touch to fully appreciate because of the softness and weight of the fabric.  I love how well it goes with my cute little furry purse!
