April’s Instaparent of the Month: @Becs_82

By ilanawiles |

I’m not sure when I started following Bec Stewart (aka @Becs_82) on Instagram, but I didn’t realize she was from Melbourne, Australia until I asked her to do this interview. I guess refering to herself as “mum” in her profile should have been a tip- off.

That’s one of the things that’s so cool about Instagram— you get a snapshot (or many snapshots) into parenthood all over the world.

Bec’s feed features mainly her two daughters, four-year-old Eliza and two-year-old Georgia, and I was automatically drawn to her photographs, having two little girls myself. Her photos, whether close-ups of her daughters or action shots taken when they aren’t looking, always stand out like bright rays of sunshine in my feed, with their incredible use of light and white space.

It’s also fun to look back through her feed and like so many moms on instagram, see how much her photography has evolved since she started.

Below are ten of my favorite pictures of hers along with ten interview questions.

April's Instaparent of the Month: @Becs_82

How has instagram changed the way you take pictures?

When I initially started using instagram, I rarely took photos!  In the past year, I have been so inspired by all of the amazing photographers on Instagram that I now love keeping a photographic diary of our life. Kids grow so fast and I'm glad we will always have these moments to look back on. Instagram has taught me to appreciate the everyday moments that 12 months ago, I wouldn't have thought of capturing.
