We're all busy with our summer plans these days. You probably have your own, be it a trip to a local beach or a flight out to your favorite out-of-the-country shopping destination. For sure, we all want to document the way we're spending our summer break. More often than not, we tend to post the same kinds of photos especially on Instagram. Hey, it's not a bad thing! Who doesn't love taking sunset shots while at the beach?

To show just how much we love to take certain kinds of photos, we list the usual Instagram posts you’ll see this summer. Which ones do you already have?

It feels better than it looks, but you want to take a photo anyway. We all love the feeling of having our toes in the sand.

A sunglass selfie
Of course, you have to share one of your summer fashion essentials—your shades! Stand somewhere with a lot of sunshine, and be sure to put on your summer lippy for a prettier look.

A shot of your back while you face the ocean
For something a bit dramatic, have a friend take your photo from the back as you stare into the vast ocean. Bonus points if your hair is wind-blown.

A photo of you drinking a summer cooler
It’s not easy to beat summer heat, so an Instagram post is in order when you get to find the perfect summer cooler.  This will make everyone in your feed crave, too! 

A picture with your BFF
It’s always double the fun when you’re with your BFF. Have someone take a photo of you two, so you’ll have something to remind you of your summer getaway together.

Sunsets never get old, and they're even more beautiful when seen out of out the city. Be sure to capture and share this moment with your network. 


A photo of your view
When you’ve got a breathtaking view, whether it’s from your hotel room or from that restaurant you just tried, it’s crucial to take a snapshot. Your photo might not give the lovely view justice, but it’s the least you can do.

An aerial shot
Say “bye for now” to your followers by posting an aerial shot from your plane. It’s one way to vacation in style. 

The mandatory jump shot
Oh yes, everyone’s favorite jump shot! Let loose and jump your highest, so you can show just how much fun you’re having.
