5 Instagrammers You'll be Glad Your Teenager is Following

By Kenzie Kramer on 02/02/2016 | Heart & Sole

Selfies, filters and Emjois are the new norm for today's teenagers. Despite the bad reputation that social media has earned, it can also provide an opportunity for girls to seek out encouraging messages and expand their worldview. To help you and your daughter have conversations about social media and seeking out positive influences in our lives both online and offline, we've selected five of our favorite Instagram accounts that encourage physical, emotional and spiritual health. 

@katetparkerphotography: Photographer Kate T. Parker's account redefines beauty with her theme of #strongisthenewpretty. Her photos are both stunning and inspirational, showcasing young women who are joyful, healthy and confident.

@amaheris: This hand-lettering extraordinaire shares inspiring messages that are sure to make you happy when they pop up in your Instagram feed. Along with the quotes, we love seeing how Ashley gives back to her community. She recently used her design skills to adorn cups that were then used to serve hot chocolate as a treat for people at a homeless shelter in Boston.

@outdoorwomen: Outdoor Women's Alliance encourages girls to get out and explore the world around them by sharing photos from female adventurers. Your girl doesn't have to be a nature-lover to appreciate the exciting stories and amazing locations that they share. 

@biggalyoga: Valerie of Big Gal Yoga shares her positive message of self-love and the power of determination in her Instagram feed featuring yoga poses. She also shares instructions and tips for mastering the poses if your daughter is interested in trying out a new skill!


@theconversation: YouTuber Amanda de Cadenet has an interview series that showcases successful women and gives them an opportunity to share more about themselves than the typical television interview provides. Her Instagram shows a sneak peek at who she is talking to next and also shares positive messages from other women.
