If a scroll through Instagram is how you celebrate getting your little one down for a nap, then this list is for you. We’ve rounded up ten feeds from local moms and dads that are worth a follow, from professional photographers who capture life’s little moments in a whole new light, to regular old overwhelmed ‘rents whose quirky captions will make you smile. Click through to see them all!


Sarah Hebenstreit is a professional photographer and mom to one-year-old Willa. We love her feed because it's an always fresh mix of her own family images along with the hundreds she shoots of other people, big and small. Her images are always simple and make use of the gorgeous NorCal natural light.

Who are your favorite local Insta-moms and dads?
