5 Local Lifestyle Instagrammers We Love To Follow

One of the first things we do in the morning, after wishing that we had more time to sleep, is grab our phone and see what pictures were posted on Instagram while we were dreaming. Outside of the post by our favorite celebrity (what’s up, T-Swift?), we love finding local Instagram accounts that are completely killing it, which is exactly what we think these five local lifestyle ‘grammers are doing.

Graphic design student Anna Martin is no stranger when it comes to an aesthetically pleasing photo. Documenting her university life, Martin highlights the calm moments of life through majestic views from her hikes, coffee breaks in bed and her gorgeous calligraphy.

Local photographer Ben Stergos has won us over with his gorgeous and soft-toned Instagram feed. Outside of taking photos of friends-turned-models and his photographer girlfriend Hannah Foldy (who also has an incredible feed!), Stergos seems to discover hidden gems in STL and makes us think twice about the placement of our sunglasses next to our coffee cup.

Local lifestyle blogger Amanda Humbolt makes us want to reorganize everything in our life and eat all the food–preferably both at once. As her profile states, her feed is full of food, cats and local STL hot spots, and we are more than okay with all three.

If we could live in an Instagram feed, it would be local photographer Jennifer Silverberg’s. She’s got it all–food, dogs, architecture and cake (our favorite!). So take a couple minutes (or hours) and get lost in this breathtaking and appetite-inducing feed.

You may call us biased because she’s one of our own, but Leitch knows what makes a great Instagram feed. From scenic shots from her trip to Mexico, #ootds and delicious-looking food, she makes us want to shop local and maybe buy a bunny costume.
