I Heart Roc Interview + Instagram Takeover

Hey everyone! I'm so excited to announce that my interview with I Heart Roc is finally up! Twice in the press this month, what luck! It was an exciting opportunity not only because I've been reading the interviews that I Heart Roc has been doing for a while now but I love their Instagram takeovers! The interview was really about how my perspective on Rochester has changed when I got to college and I wanted many of my photos for the Instagram takeover (which is also live this week!) to reflect that. 

This was the first time that I've ever did an Instagram takeover and it was difficult to think about what people would like. I mean there was so many takeovers done already and most of the usual places covered so would people even be interested in seeing what I had to share? The answer is yes: the feedback was wonderful! My best advice for an Instagram takeover is to just go for it and create content that you find interesting and to not be intimated by other people. 

There was many places from my childhood that I re-visited including a dead mall so that was interesting haha. But I also talked a lot about the restaurant revival scene, places with history, and of course my favorite places to shoot for the blog! I would love for you gals to check it out and let me know what you think. 

A big thank you to the I Heart Roc team for this amazing opportunity!

Thanks for reading,

  1. I loved your Instagram takeover; The Owl House and Gate House are two of my faves, too!
