instagram…you got me.
Just the other day, Katie Ett and I were saying how instagram type photos are so over done these days, yet I find myself playing with instagram like it’s going out of style.
I didn’t judge others who used it, in fact, I thought their photos looked pretty neat. But, instagram is just snapshots of life. Not, say a wedding or a family portrait. It’s just taking a simple cellphone photo and making it actually look decent enough to possibly save. Because, let’s get real here, cellphones don’t take the best photos.
Perhaps it’s because it makes me look OK even when I don’t have make up on. (I totally love how Mae looks like she’s deep in thought.)
And it captures Claire’s pride in a simple, vintage style –
Or after bath time fun –
Plus when I have snuggles with the little dude –
Or Maelie attacking Luca’s head –
Or getting my hairs did (because we all know we look horrible in front of the giant mirror and florescent lights) –
And it made the doctor’s office look cool –
Darn you instagram, for I am a convert. Though – our original conversation stated how we wouldn’t have every single one of our wedding photos or family portraits be like this. Because, well, it’s a fad. And photos like that should try to be timeless.
This is having fun with a cellphone.
I mean – I can’t help but think how much cooler this photo would have looked with the Amaro setting.
