Julia Smith shares her Instagram and Lightroom secrets

Where does Julia’s Instagram alias come from? “Humphrey and Grace is a name I’m quite attached to.” Julia explains it’s the name of a web shop she ran when she was a stay-at-home mum with a young daughter. “But people were getting confused about whether it was me, or not me, so I changed it so that my Instagram and my website matched.” 

Humphrey and Grace is now a photography-themed blog with stories, ideas, camera and Instagram tips. Why did Julia make the change towards photography? “When toddlers are toddling it’s very difficult to have a lot of time for sewing and making things! So it evolved at that time into photography and writing, which is perfect for me because it’s something I love anyway.”
