Strike a Pose!

If it seems like Griffin has been having lots of professional photos done lately - it's because she has :) hahaha 

And no - lovely anonymous commenter who thought I was a horrible mom for not having as many pics of Mason and Luke - it's not because I love them less :) hahaha  #hatersgonnahate

Griffin has had some super fun opportunities lately and so we've jumped on them!  First up, my extra sweet and ultra talented friend Narci took some GORGEOUS pictures of Griffin right before her first birthday.


I shared several of them on Griffin's birthday post (if you haven't read it - grab a tissue before you do!  I reread it and cried AGAIN!) hahaha

 And here are a few that I didn't share earlier :)  This picture of her little teeny toes makes me tear up.  I love those teeny little feet!!!


And then Narci made me get in the shot even though I hadn't planned on it... and I am so glad I did.  :)


Another shot that I never shared was this pic that she did for my mom for Mother's day... my grandmother hand smocked this dress for me when I was a baby :)

Then we had our family pics taken by Kelly - Love Fern Photography...


THEN... Griffin modeled for Julie Klaasmeyer during Texas School (an annual photography school in Dallas).  She modeled for Julie last year as a two-week old and I was SO excited to have Julie take her pictures again.




I've shared a couple of sneaks on Instagram... but here's the entire lot!  I can not say enough great things about Julie and these images!!!
 













I think this one might be my favorite...

Or maybe this one...


... or this one :)


We have been so blessed these past few months so get some FANTASTIC pictures of our sweet girl.  I am always amazed at how quickly they grow and change and so I treasure these little snapshots.  Now all I need to do is figure out what to do with them all. :) hahaha  I'm having lots printed to frame, but I'm also working on picking some to have made into canvases for her room.

Thanks for indulging me in a little Griffin-overload :)  Tomorrow it's back to our regularly scheduled programming. hehehe

Don't forget that today is the last day to enter the Matilda Jane Giveaway!!! I can't wait to announce the winner tomorrow! :)

  3. I never get tired of seeing her! Yesterday, our children's pastor stopped by to pick up his two boys who were over playing, and I showed him her photo on instagram - anyone who drops by will probably be seeing her photo. She is just too precious!

  4. OH MY WORD! That old toddler bed. I'm dying over these pictures. I am on my way to Texas to meet this Julie. She is AMAZING. :)
    And the loving Griffin more comment actually made me laugh. I'm guessing she probably isn't a mom or maybe she just needs some Jesus in her life. I love how involved you are with all 3 kiddos together and individually. You make me think I can possibly have 2 kiddos rather than just Jack because you are awesome at it! :)

  7. Boys don't like their picture taken, that's a fact! And it only gets worse the older they get. I think it's pretty clear that you love all your kids equally so Miss Anonymous needs to get a life! Griffin is precious as are all your kids. It makes my day seeing her pics :-)

  23. She is GORGEOUS! What amazing opportunities for all these amazing photos you have! I would have the HARDEST time figuring out which to print and which not to. Might need a whole wall to dedicate :)
