Carrie Bickmore has been praised for sharing a photo showing the reality of life behind the sweet Instagram photo’s.

Sharing a slide on Instagram of two very different versions of the same shoot, Carrie wrote:

“INSTAGRAM verses REALITY (swipe right)
1st pic was taken on a flattering angle, with some props, some casual hand positioning, some clever cropping and a nice little filter added.

The 2nd was the real moment captured without my knowledge a couple of weeks after Adelaide was born before I woke up and suggested we take a nice shot.”
