They had a triple "graduation" for Joy and the -Iah twins and they're all younger than Josiah. It was on the show. 

Good catch. I scrolled through the Jed/Jer/Joy posts to look for a "graduation" party but there were none on the blog. They only talked about Josiah's party that was on the show. Normally those two recap the show in painstaking detail.

It was such a little-kids' party that everybody quickly forgot it was supposed to be for the "graduates"! 

I only remembered because the idea of the teenagers having a supposed graduation party that was dominated by little kids made me sick....Speaks volumes about the fact that these parents don't let their kids gradually grow toward autonomy, seems to me. 

And then the social-media post or speech (whatever it was) by JB and/or M about how a fabulous Duggar education makes their kids into lifelong learners burned itself into my brain!

Soon there will be no fundie shop unadvertised by Duggarlings. Or multiple Duggarlings. 

Typical of Duggar world that Jana, an inferior unmarried woman, finally got permission from her parents (in her late 20s!) to have social media accounts -- only because they're now desperately dredging for dollars.

I agree with everyone else that these are nice pictures, and a million times better than anything Jill has ever posted. I bet the photos weren't taken by a four-year-old.

The dress is actually pretty hideous, but the effect is nice anyway because someone put in some actual time and effort to choose an attractive location and wait for some flattering lighting. Will Jill learn anything from this -- I doubt it.

And, really Jana, this knee length, super-modest dress does not need pants or leggings or whatever under it.

Don't Jill and Jana talk to each other anymore?  The contrast between their photos is shocking.  Then again, do we even know who is taking Jana's photos?   I'm assuming it's not a small child.

Probably a family member or Laura. From looking at Jill’s IG, I really don’t think she cares, tbh. If she wanted a more professional look, she could easily get that done. When you look at Jana’s account, from the start you can tell she’s really been trying to come off as one of those “high profile” influencer accounts. Sometimes maybe trying too hard, IMO.

I actually love the idea of the four-year-old taking the photos!

Give him a sense of agency and some fun. Heaven knows a Duggar/Dillard kid needs both.

Plus, they're not the artworks of Ansel Adams or the war photos of Margaret Bourke-White. They're just silly personal photos on the supreme silliness and triviality that is social media. So why the heck not? 

On the other hand, if you're some phony-baloney 'influencer" who's posting your photos because you want to use your power to spread personal/family propaganda and sell stuff then obviously you want everything all posed and staged and photoshopped and taken by some super-careful adult.

But the influencers are all famewhores and liars as far as I can tell.

Pretending that they're writing "personal" stuff to their "followers' when it's really just sales talk. Acting as if they are somebody special whose tastes are so superior they ought to be our tastes, too. Because they're so special and worth "following." (although it's really just for the thrill of flexing their power-and-popularity-and superiority muscles and/or to make a buck).

Jana and Jer, I'm looking at you. 

You go with your bad self, photographer Izzy.

I think Jill's mostly producing photos the way a perfectly ordinary person produces photos for herself. She's not an advertiser. She's plain old Jill. Because she's in her family and on tv, she puts her posts out there as part of their mission and now their advertising business. But those things aren't Jill and the pictures don't even show a trace of those things. They show her Duggar-tradition bad cooking and her lack of fashion sense, and she doesn't see that as a problem because the whole "influencer" role doesn't mean anything to her personally. 

Jana, by contrast, is producing photos that have no person in them. They actually are ads and pr for the brand. And that's all they are. Just as in everything else she does, I get the sense that Jana has no interest at all in showing anybody who she is as a person. When asked to do advertising and mission work for the family business, she dutifully produces post after post of professional-looking photos and careful, formal copy, all created as if by a fairly skilled but soulless traditional advertising-industry worker. And whoever and whatever Jana actually is is kept carefully out of sight, just as always. 

And then there's Jessa. Her photos are better than Jill's, but at the same time she comes off as more of an ordinary person rather than "professional PR" for the Duggar brand if that makes sense. It's more like "amateur PR."

Great minds!  I was just flipping through a Vermont Country Store catalog, and that's the first thing I thought of when I looked at the nightgowns:  Jana's "dress."

The pictures are for the clothing company  Called to Surf, with whom Jana is partnered. She's probably wearing their clothes in the photo. The post explains how to enter the contest.  Follow Jana and Called to Surf on Instagram. Tag your friends on the post to enter.

Thanks Temperance. I should have worded that differently. What do the pictures express? What are we supposed to see? They aren't professionally done, they dont really show the dress well? Who thought of the concept of "Hey Jana, go run in a field."

And a company named Called To Surf ? What kind of surf clothing can a Duggar wear ? Nothing that you can actually be in the surf with.

Based on their website, the company seem to sell fairly (but not crazily) modest versions of beachy-type wear and other things, including fairly modest but not Duggar-nutty swimwear. "Called to surf" is probably a pun on "Called to serve [Jesus]," I'd guess. 

I'd say Jana was going for soft-focus, countryside romanticism.  As in the Summer's Eve commercials @GeeGolly mentioned.

What I want to know is whether she's wearing boots or leggings. Whichever it is it makes it look like she has big, blocky legs that are a completely different color from the rest of her skin -- a sort of grey-brown -- because anyone who wasn't familiar with Jana's Gothard Style would never expect her to wear either boots or leggings with that dress. 

And if she wanted a dress she didn't feel she had to wear boots or leggings with, why didn't she ask the store to send her one of their maxi or midi dresses instead? They have a bunch of those....Although maybe they just sent her one of their dresses that wasn't selling too well or something and didn't give her any choice...

Both Called to Surf and Citrus and Lemon are LDS companies based in Utah.  I got this info from a Tumblr account called FundiesbytheDozen fundie snark. 

Called to Surf apparently has a boutique store in Provo, Utah.  I guess you can surf the Great Salt Lake; otherwise why would there be a company called Called to Surf from Utah? (The Beach Boys led me to believe you need an ocean.)

Thanks. Boots or leggings. Boots or leggings. I couldn't figure which one it was! I'm glad it's boots, I guess. They make more sense than leggings. But they still don't make much sense!

Well, they did support Catholic Rick don't ever Google his name Santorum in his presidential campaign,  so I can see them partnering with any company if it benefits them.  The Duggars are more concerned with the company's stance on social justice issues like marriage equality and limiting the rights of LGBTQ individuals than whether or not the company is run by completely like minded individuals.

True. And LDS did win over a lot of conservative Protestants who previously shunned them back in 2008 when they acted as the main engine to get Proposition 8 (gay marriage ban) passed in California. The Duggars are way devoted to that issue, as we know, so that could have been a turning point for them with Mormons, as it was for a lot of other people.
