  3. Great video! It was creative and funny. I like that you went a little different and did this instead of a regular post with more photos from Cabo. :D

  4. haha loved this! Especially the guy shaking his head when you stood on the bench, I get that ALL.THE.TIME from people around me!

  5. This was awesome! I especially loved the end.. and it’s nice to see that other people sometimes look just as silly as I do when taking foodies and such! Though I think if I asked my friends to turn their flashes on so I could get a good picture, they’d kill me :( lol

    Because I’m Obsessed

  6. I’m always so curious to see how my favorite Instagrammers take their photos. Thank you for letting us in on your secrets! I can’t wait to use these hints :) xx

    This video is brilliant!! I love it really much, funny and useful at the same time, I’ll share it with my readers!

  8. This was helpful and hilarious at the same time. I hope you start making videos more often!

  9. Aha! I don’t think I have the balls now to ask random strangers for oufit pics, but that’s what family and friends are for..or my camera that can take pics on voice command with the simple word “cheese” >.< . I definitely do the booty thing though with the shoe/outfit shot. And i'm that girl that makes everyone wait to eat while I take a pic of the food..dope video! =P

  10. Hahah I love this video! I am new to instagram and the other day I wanted to take an outfit shot from above but it didn’t turn out how I wanted. “Stick your butt out” tip here I come!

  18. You’re so cute! I actually stood on a chair to take a pic at brunch with my girlfriends last weekend. They all laughed at me but thought the photo came out great. My boyfriend also hates when I make him wait to eat just to take a pic — but hey, it’s the life of us bloggers!

  19. Great tips! I’m just starting to find my feet with all blogging aspects and Instagram is defiantly one of my favourites. I’m always looking at other bloggers Instagram’s for tips and inspirations on how to make my photos more appealing. Adding arm candy or clutch and sunglasses or just different items to a photo has become a fast favourite to make my photos less boring! I’ve always wondered how people mange to take a shoe/outfit standing shot and the ‘butt out’ tip is great defiantly going to use that from now on! Thanks for the great tips.

    That was the best video I have ever seen! So funny and original.

  23. Ha! So cute. Thanks! I always did wonder how you got such great shots, especially selfie outfit photos. And, I have one very pressing question; do you actually eat all that food? If so, you are genetically blessed :-)


  24. lol.. you made me laugh with this video! you are so adorable, I saw myself in every single situation!!! please keep doing more videos!!! xo!

  25. This video is so cute and helpful, Aimee! I love that you have a sense of humor. Plus, I was totally trying to figure out the standing outfit shot the other day, and just couldn’t get it. Now I know how to pull it off! :D

  42. I’m sure someone else has said this in the 100+ comments, but as women we should watch our self talk. You’re not bossy because you know what you want. You just – know what you want. A man wouldn’t be called bossy. He would be called decisive ;) Great video Aimee!

  43. LOL! Good one Aimee! Thanks for sharing the tips. OK, now I know I got to stick my butt out when taking pictures of my shoes and pants while standing =)

  44. Wonderful tips Aimee! And don’t forget to have Apelpi smartphone battery charger handy so you won’t have to miss a great photo.

  45. Bloggers can’t be bashful about asking someone to take their photos…or giving direction. It’s your brand, your name, and your photos. I’m always surprised when I ask people to take my photo and they cut my head off or my legs or arms. WHY? Why would you think that it’s a good photo? LOL!

    Have You Heard Of It? blog:

  48. Your video is very funny and I love it but please accept this advice: do not give your cell phone to a stranger to take a picture of you if you are in other country. It could be a huge mess and you can stay posing meanwhile the boy runs away with your phone. Take care and good job :)
