Steph shows off the Peninsula lifestyle. Stephanie Leonard (née Bray) started her Instagram page @peninsula.lifestyle in 2015. It began as a marketing strategy for the real estate agency she was working for at the time. Now it’s transformed into a creative outlet for Steph to share her writing and photography while engaging her local community and prospective visitors. It was Steph’s stylish, engaging, and relatable content that saw her page quickly grow. Kate Sears speaks to Steph about how it’s grown to have an amazing community and highlight the paradise that is the Peninsula.
