Instagram Is Awesome... and so is Megan!

Hi everyone.  I'm Megan, from AbsoluteMommy.
I blog about my life and how it's changed since motherhood.  I also blog about my motherhood fumbles and recoveries, so that's all fun too.  I'm sure you have seen me around this blog before.

What I love about Lena's blog, is that I get inspired by her photographs.  I'm super jelly because I am not the best photographer.  I just have a little point and click, and it's usually blurry or has bad lighting.  My photos are embarrassing.  Unless I'm using my secret weapon... Instagram.

Even the most novice and unskilled eye, can come up with some rad photos via Instagram.  Case in point.  A wedding I recently had the honor of attending.  I was also wearing a "wedding coordinator" halo that day, so I got some great shots of the bride and groom, and of the bride and her dad.  I was lucky enough to snag these without making a big to do.  Trust me when I say, that these would look pitiful if I had taken them with my point and click!!  These pictures look like I know what I'm doing.  It's all thanks to Instagram!

So what did you think?
If you don't already know, Instagram is an addiction of mine.
Just like Lena and her bloggy!

And as a thank you for having me over today,
I'm going to give away a $15 gift card to Target.

Just because.

Ah! These photos are breathtaking, Megan!!
Thank you for sharing the awesomeness that is Instagram!

Megan's giveaway will end Sunday, July 22nd at midnight!
Good luck!

  1. I love that you can take a pic, edit with cool action and share so super quick!



  2. I love that its like looking through peoples photo albums on their phone. I'm so nosy lol!

    1. Haha! Amanda you are so funny! I guess we are all a little nosy these days with Instagram!

  3. I just think the filters are cool. It's fun to play with :)


  4. I love how it makes my pictures look too! But I also love the share aspect that I can update my friends and family with my life. I am a very visual person so I love seeing things more than just reading about. And I love looking back to see what me, my husband, or my son have been up to. Easy & fun documentation!! :)

  5. Love that I can capture our little everyday adventures with my phone always on me #addicted

  6. I love that you can share a photo with your friends so quickly! @kassarie

  7. I'm so addicted to instagram that now when I'm on FB I try to tap photos to like them. @mamarockwell

  8. I love that I just found out you dont have to have an iphone to use instagram :)

  9. Love the filters, but I have to admit that I don't really use the app. I guess I should get on board! I do have a username though- ShapingUpMegan!

  10. haha.. love the secret weapon of instagram... blots out a giant zit super easy. and you never know... muahahahaha..

  11. I love that in just a few seconds I can have a cute, edited photo out on the WWW! :)

  12. megan, those weddings photos are BEAUTIFUL!! you've got talent girl!! :)

  13. Even though I'm a photographer, you can't have your camera with you at all times. Unlike my phone, its premanently attached to my hand. LOL Instangram is the perfect way to share you life with friends in pictures.

  14. I love how easy instagram is and that other apps work easily with it! My instagram name is KassieRew

  15. I'll be honest. Instagram is not something I love. I wasn't impressed and am kinda confused why everyone loves it. I understand that you can edit pics. That's cool. My ID is karries3

    But I don't use it enough. Maybe I just need to learn more about it.


I ♥ hearing from you!
Thanks so much for taking the time to write me a little message!
