I love how so many photoshoots are born from the thought “wouldn’t this look cute on Instagram?!” I’m not gonna lie. It’s just the honest truth. If the comment “I’m going to caption this with…” doesn’t happen during a photoshoot (from either the photographer or the model), is it really even a photoshoot?!
It’s January. It’s winter. And my social accounts https://www.instagram.com/tgcphoto/ and https://www.facebook.com/TGCBranson/ definitely are lacking in snow pictures. Because we haven’t had any yet this season (hello, I ran in a t-shirt and no jacket yesterday)…so when it snowed for 4.6 seconds today there wasn’t even an option. It was time to updated the ‘gram.
I love putting together shoots with Catherine (WITH A C!), our minds are always on the same page for pictures and her creative mind and artistic eye means we have ideas coming from everywhere! She didn’t even bat an eye at hanging out in the 27* cold with blowing snow and trapping through a creek.
Cat captioned these pictures (below) as soon as she saw the back-of-camera image. That makes a photographer heart happy!!
Of course I’m being slightly sarcastic, but I’m also being 100% honest. Shooting with Instagram in mind isn’t a bad thing, and honestly, I have brainstormed a lot of shoots with people for the ‘gram, and loved every single one of them! Here’s to you, Instagram content shooters! Let me know, because I’d be happy to help you out!
My feelings about Instagram filters…that’s another story.
