Amy Woodruff: I am aware of Instagram’s policies regarding inappropriate photos, and have been flagged only twice in the past two years. The first time was last year for the yoga breast-feeding photo, and the second time was several months ago. I don’t know which photo they removed as they didn’t specify in their notification. Around this time I removed any images I thought might be considered inappropriate. It seems that due to the recent press attention surrounding the yoga breastfeeding photo, many people were being directed to my Instagram account who normally wouldn’t be following me, and flagged images they were uncomfortable with. Before Instagram removed my account on Thursday, there no were photos I believed to be at risk. I am dismayed that Instagram failed to send out a warning before closing my account. I have done no harm to anyone. I’ve simply created a place of sharing and inspiration for people on the same path as my family.
My community on Instagram holds a very dear place in my heart and I am beyond grateful for the support and outpour of love that has come through. If my Instagram account is not reinstated, then so be it! I will continue to create and share more beauty whether on Instagram or beyond! Let’s not attach ourselves to the imagery but LIVE the actual message! Much of the Instagram community has come together to help spread the love. If you feel called to reach out you can hashtag #savedaughterofthesun on Instagram.
Thank you Instagram.
I love you, I’m sorry, Please forgive me. xo Daughter of the Sun
