Bringing Up Bates star Carlin Bates is always sharing photos on Instagram. Often, they are pretty high-quality, and many of them look like they could be from a professional photo shoot. Fans want to know how she can afford all of these photo shoots, and she has a little secret about how she makes it work.
On Instagram Thursday, Carlin shared a few new photos from a campaign she did with a skincare company. In the photos, she and her one-year-old daughter, Layla, are sitting outside on a blanket together. In her caption, the young mom writes, “This spring is already looking a lot different than last year. Layla wasn’t sitting up yet, and now she is bringing me flowers.”
Then, Carlin goes on to mention the importance of herself and Layla wearing sunscreen. They plan on spending a lot of time outdoors this spring and summer because Layla is getting older and wants to play more. Plus, the family recently got a dog, Izzy Rue, who wants to be outdoors too. In her post, she includes all of the advertisement information given to her by the skincare company.
Fans are obsessing over Carlin and Layla’s cute new photos of course. They just have one question.
What is Carlin Bates’ secret?
In a comment, one of Carlin’s followers asks, “How much money do you spend annually on family photo shoots. It seems like a full time job!”
In response, she explains how she’s able to take all of these photos. She writes, “My husband actually bought me a camera for Christmas, so he took these photos and I edited them! 🥰 I do like to get photos done every once in awhile to have a photo to look back on the memories we have made as a family! 💛”
So, Carlin isn’t spending extra money on these photos. She is able to take them herself to cut down on costs. Since this is a sponsored post in collaboration with a brand, she makes money by posting about the products or from her social media followers using her unique coupon code when they shop.
