Literary Lifestyle Photo Prompts | December
LiterearyLifestylePromptsDec17.jpg

December inevitably encompasses our gloomy vibes here in the Pacific Northwest. From our short days covered in dark gray clouds, to the Christmas lights strung up to bring in some cheer, it's a powerful month of family, togetherness, and warm seasonal books. December marks one year since we began participating in photo prompts on Bookstagram, and we haven't looked back since. Last year was also a great one for us, as we relished in a handful of phenomenal classics, the start of our literary dinners, and copious amounts of time together that kicked off all that The Ardent Biblio has become.

We hope you will join us for yet another great month of literary lifestyle photo prompts. We hope you've noticed that as we progress we have been leaving each prompt open to more interpretation in order to fit what suits your reading life and whatever creative flow you're feeling for that day. And if you're like us, sometimes it's even easier to keep a day ahead if you're invested in getting each photo in for the month, especially with the shorter light offered during the day. Be sure to check out our photography tips for some inspiration if you need some. Sometimes the days are just too busy, and we totally get it! Don't feel bad about planning ahead or missing some days, just jump in and join us whenever you can!

Thank you, friends, for being a part of our little community here. We love connecting with so many readers and those who value the beauty and importance of a literary lifestyle. We aim to make reading a social hobby, and hearing from you continues to motivate us. We hope you'll join us, whenever you can, on our prompts, found on Instagram under #TheArdentBiblioReads.

November signals a shift into the deeper part of autumn and the slide into winter here in the PNW. The temperatures drop drastically and the trees start breaking our hearts by shedding all their brightly colored leaves. Fall has peaked, and the major holidays are suddenly just around the corner. With the shorter days and busier schedules, we are still being careful to make time to document our authentic reading lives, though. This month we are anticipating lots of cozy vibes, hot new reads, and plenty of gearing up for the holidays; we can't wait!

Literary Lifestyle Photo Prompts | October

We are stepping into autumn this month and I am so thrilled for the shift in seasonal vibes so wonderfully evident around us. Fall has been my favorite season since I was a little girl, walking next to my mom as she pointed out the changing of colors on the leaves in the trees, the warm sweatshirts she loved to wear, and the lack of guilt from staying cozy inside. As I get older, this season embodies everything that is family time, togetherness, cozy and warm; to say I can't get enough is an understatement.

Literary Lifestyle Photo Prompts | April

Sprinnnggggggg!!!!!! It's finally upon us, and here in the PNW we are grateful (so freaking grateful) for the longer days, and for seeing the sun sneak out from the clouds once in a while. April means Easter, and warmer weather, and all kinds of anticipation for summer! Here to help us celebrate is our newest batch of Literary Lifestyle Photo Prompts, and we hope you'll join us! 

We're absolutely loving meeting and connecting with so many other amazing Instagrammers, and watching how everyone interprets the prompts and documents their individual reading life; it really is the best part of this community.

And so, without further ado...

Literary Lifestyle Photo Prompts | March

Last month's prompts were such a fun way to kick off our literary lifestyle photos. We've LOVED seeing what you guys are coming up with! The best part is that we can all have the same idea with the prompt, yet still have completely unique perspectives. We're hoping to get more book lovers on board to start showing what their reading life is like, because we believe that the reader is just as important as the book. 

Most importantly, we've connected with other fantastic Instagrammers thanks to the prompts. We are so excited for even more new IG friends in March!

Just for fun, here's how our February prompts looked for us!

Literary Lifestyle Photo Prompts | February

We're passionate about our literary lifestyles, as well as including that here and in our Instagram squares. We want to portray reading in an aesthetically pleasing fashion that is honest, real, and fun. To have photos that are worth keeping and spark memories of good books and cozy evenings is worth the little bit of effort.

Over the past few months, we've found fun prompts to push our creative inspiration to showcase what we're reading, want to read, and the books we love. After receiving such positive feedback, it's time we encourage you to do the same!

This is literary lifestyle at its finest.

Don't be discouraged, but challenge yourself + enjoy it, take multiple photos to get it right, try different times of day to get the light right, move things around, and most importantly, don't give up. It's fun to include yourself, your kids, spouse, or even a friend in the photos. Feeling stuck? Scroll through our feed, or the hashtag to get inspired! #TheArdentBiblioReads
