APA recommends citing Instagram photographs and videos in the following format: 

Authorlastname, A. A. [@username]. (Year, Month Date). Content of the post up to the first 20 words. [Description of audiovisual]. Instagram. URL.

Waukesha County Technical College [@wctcedu] (2023, October 19). Fall breaks starts today. Enjoy your class-free week. [Photograph]. Instagram.

If citing an Instagram Story or Instagram Live, APA recommends citing it as a personal communication since it is not archived by Instagram.
