  • Thank you for considering Jolie Starrett Photography. We are now booking newborn and high school senior clients. Please keep an eye out for mini sessions throughout the year for children and families.

Spring is Here!

There are many changes happening around here!  I’ve become super busy with my family and will be cutting down on the number of sessions taken.  For the remainder of 2014 I will only be offering mini sessions (no full sessions).  These will be announced in the new few weeks.  There will be Spring and Fall dates.

Hope you all have a joyful spring!

Updates {Dallas Photographer}

It’s coming up on my favorite time of year!  Fred, our elf, is expected to make his debut this weekend.   For some fun Elf on the Shelf ideas head over to my Pinterest board dedicated to elf antics.

This Christmas Season we have some fun things planned.  We’ll be headed to ICE this upcoming weekend.  Then we have tickets The Gift of Christmas in a few weeks and finally Trans-Siberian Orchestra.   I told you it was my favorite time of the year!

There are a few changes coming up for Jolie Starrett Photographer for 2014.  For one, there will be more mini session opportunities throughout the year.  I’ve found that most clients prefer a quick mini session for updated photos.  Stay tuned, those dates will be released around the first of the year.

Pure Barre {The Higher the Heels the Thinner the Thighs}

As moms and wives we tend to forget about ourselves.  At least I know I have.   Photography became something just for me for a while.  And then it became a business.  So I was back to not really having something just for me.

I tried to become a runner and I still desperately want to be one.  Last fall I developed Plantar fasciitis and it still is not completely healed.  While it’s MUCH better than it was, I don’t think it will completely ever heal.  So I’m still not sure if I’ll be able to run for distance.

I sat around for 8 months waiting for my foot to heal until I finally realized it may never be back to “normal.”

I decided I had to do something.  I wanted to try out some barre classes.  I purchased a DVD and that didn’t work out so well.  I’m the type of person that needs the energy of a classroom setting.  I found Pure Barre and just completed my first month.  I am in love!  And as a bonus I think it is actually helping my plantar fasciitis.  Maybe from the “high heels?”

Pure Barre is a total workout where you wear sticky socks instead of shoes  It’s a Pilates/Yoga meets ballet class set to high energy current music. The studio provides the equipment that you will use (a tube, a ball, a mat, and hand weights). It’s a low impact workout that is perfect for women (and men) of all ages and sizes.  Lift, Tone, Burn (LTB) is there motto.  And believe me, you will feel the burn!

“The higher the heels the thinner the thighs” is one of their fun lines.  I giggled the first time I heard it because this girl doesn’t even own a pair of high heels.  Even though I’m not thin, long and lean, after going to class it sure makes me feel that way.  Now, hopefully I will get back to being that way!
