Get to know me

My name is Essie,


Yes, that is my real name, nope not short for anything! I am named after my sweet Grandma and it is an honor!


Speaking on family, I was born and raised in a cute little town called Monterey. I have the best parents, and a pretty awesome childhood. Days were spent at the beach, time gardening with my mom and bird watching with my dad. Oh! I am the middle of 3 poor Dad! Although we live far apart now, we are still pretty close.


I am now a wife to the most supportive husband and mother to three awesome girls! I know, my poor husband! Our girls keep us busy, but in the best way all while I am trying to slow it all down. Life a crazy ride that way!


Shout out to my sweet friend Jodi for capturing my tribe! Check out more of her work at Jodi Lynn Photography


advice to my younger self:
Be you, even when it feels hard.


Growth happens in the struggle, embrace it!
