I will be the first person to admit that mornings can be difficult, and getting up early always feels like a chore. While I love the feeling of being productive and getting a head start on my day, I shudder at the thought of waking up before the sun is up. But every once in a while, I get up at the crack of dawn, make myself a pot of tea, and start working on everything I need to do. Personally, I've never had an impromptu early morning photo shoot (I'm terrible at selfies), but if you find yourself getting up early and rocking a glow from last night's skincare, you'll definitely need some captions for morning pics.
Maybe you pose for a cute selfie with your pup cuddled up in bed with you, or maybe you snap a pic of the beautiful colors in the sky at sunrise, or maybe your significant other made you a seriously Instagrammable breakfast in bed spread. Whatever the occasion is, mornings can be beautiful, provided you're able to wake up early enough to celebrate them.
Even though sleeping in sounds like a great plan most of the time, maybe give yourself a morning or two a week to get up a little earlier than planned. Watch the sunrise, breathe in the fresh morning air, have a cup of coffee or tea, and snap some pics. It'll be a great way to start your day.
