Hip 2B Square

Ever since our CEO let me scroll through your beautiful Instagram feeds on behalf of Showit, I have realized two things. First, my attempts at photography are like a one year old's drawings compared to you all. While I could choose to lament my lack of skill, instead I choose to swim in the tranquil see of the images you provide in this wonderful square world. (Yes, and rectangles, too!) Second, I do not like when someone interrupts my lovely sea of squares (and yes, rectangles, too) with advertisements, or even worse, dictates my view.

We are all born creative individuals. Even little old me with no photographic skills what so ever believe with my whole heart that I was born to create! I hope I can speak for all of us and declare as creative individuals we do not like anyone telling us what we should and should not like.

I am nostalgic for the day of ol. The days I would log into our Instagram feed at random times just to see the variety of posts from an extremely diverse community of Showiteers!  Now though. Now!?? Now Instagram tells us we should like these 25 people. And that's it!

Big thumbs down emoji to you, Instagram algorithm makers.

So, we here on the Showit Social Media Team have decided to rebel against the algorithm and choose who we like! And we like you!!! We will be listing five IG accounts to check out from time to time here. We would love, love, love to feature you in our list and give you a big Showiteer shout-out on our IG page. You can use our favorite hashtag, #showiteer, to let the Showiteer love flow and/or let us know on our Instagram account, Facebook account, or in the Showiteer group who we should be watching. You are amazing and we can wait to buck the IG system and see more from you!

Without further ado, our fist five Hip 2B Square friends, in no particular order, all loved equal amounts, the awesome, the amazing…drum roll please!

Henry Photography

What you will see: Light and lovely. Always capturing the bright moments that highlight the natural beauty of each occasion. This husband and wife team manage to add joy, romance, and just a tad bit of dazzle to all their images.

Emma & Josh

What you will see: Warmth and spirit. These two happily married photographers adore their two kids and their clients. In every shot, you know they were present in that very moment, enjoying life to the fullest.

Sabrina Fields

IG: sabrina_fields

What you will see: The best of the sweet in-between moments in life. This Southern gal is rich in love and dripping with that slow molasses sweetness. Sabrina weaves her way through the chaos of a wedding or birth capturing the quiet moments that would be missed had she not arrived on the scene.

David Mendoza III

What you will see: Beauty of self. Known as Doza to many, he travels with his camera everywhere in hopes of showing people their true beauty. This one is No. 78 of his #aportraitaday series. So, lots to catch up on and so much to look forward to!

Orange Photographie

What you will see: Luminous magic. If you can image what it feels like to breathe in at the exact same moment as breathing out…that is what you will find here. These world travelers capture love everywhere they go and infuse it with magic.

There you have it folk. Our first attempt of beating the system and asserting our creative independence over those algorithm bullies. So tell me who's next! Again, you can find us at our Instagram account, Facebook account, or in the Showiteer group. Looking forward to hearing from you and seeing all the beauty from your lens!
