Moms, Capture Back to School Moments with Shuttersong

Susan here with an awesome new photo app for sharing back-to-school moments. We were compensated for our time in writing this post but all opinions remain our own.

Back to school moments are in full swing. Depending where you live, your kids may already be back in school or if you’re like us, you might still have another week of summer left.

Pinterest is FULL of adorable ideas for back to school pictures. But what if you could do something no one has done? Really make your back to school moments stand out from the crowd!


Shuttersong mobile app let parents do just this. Lots of us remember to snap a pic of the kids on the first day of school. But what if you could add music to an image or record your child’s voice telling you the answer to such questions as What do you want to be when you grow up? What’s your favorite food, color, game? Who is your teacher? What grade are you in this year?…. the possibilities are endless.

Our kids may not be back in school quite yet, but Janice has already taken some “back-to-school” themed shots of her daughter Olivia. I added a clip from one of my favorite songs to this fabulous shot…

I love how incredibly easy it is to use the app and to share your creation on Twitter and Facebook.
