Natasha Maxwell started an online Instagram profile of her son who was only 20-month-year-old. With the passage of time, his followers started increasing.
A 33-year old mother created the account to share her son’s photos with her loved ones. At that time she has no idea that he got this much followers.
Natasha has been received many free gifts for shout outs. She received designer clothes, a ticket to Disney and the fridge.
Natasha said that after creating the account of her son it opened many opportunities for her family. She gave a message that how parents can use social media in a positive way.
She said: “It has hugely benefited our lives and we have had so much just given to us for free. We have received thousands of pounds worth of stuff, at least £10,000 worth.
I didn’t start it as a way of using my children to gain anything. I only started the page because it is a place to keep all of my photos in one place for my friends and family to see.
People just kept following us and it just grew from there. Now some posts can be seen by 20,000 people and it has just gone crazy.”
She added: “I put a lot of work in and it does take up a lot of my time. She said that posts are not only about parker.”
Natasha said that she spent almost nine hours in account management and it is like a job for her. She created the page when parker was eight-month-old.
She has a passion for photography and she wanted to shares the picture of her son with everyone. After this, she created the account with the name @life.of.parker.george.
Parker has 16,000 followers on Instagram and he is only one year old. Natasha also has an eight-year-old daughter.
When the account’s followers increase with time different brand has sent her the designer clothes, and other different things for advertising purpose.
Natasha hopes her feed can inspire other parents to get creative when sharing pictures of their little ones online.
