15 Branded Flatlay Photo Ideas for Instagram

If you’re new to the brand photography or Instagram world, you might be asking yourself, “What is a flatlay?” A flatlay is a top-down image taken from above of a flat service that typically includes styled products, objects, props, etc., arranged in a visually pleasing manner.

One of my biggest tips for styling flatlays is to make sure to choose items that are on-brand with what you are talking about on Instagram! You’ll want your flatlays to be able to point back to something that your target market can relate to, and is either:

  • Educational
  • Inspirational
  • Motivational
  • Entertaining

For example, if you’re a wedding photographer, and your flatlay is all about what you carry in your diaper bag, you’re probably not connecting with your target market, the engaged bride to be.

By creating high-value informational content that your target market can relate to, you’re also pointing back to your business where your audience will view your product or service as the solution to their needs
