I’m Esther Pulcipher. I am a perpetual daydreamer, love to bake, obsessed with books about France, on a lifelong mission to learn German (it’s a slow journey), always adding to my bucket list of European cities to visit, would live in stripes and sweaters year-round if the weather permitted, and am always craving a cup of coffee.
Monterey, California is where I currently live with my amazing and loving husband and my sweet baby boy. Most of my days are spent at home, raising my son, and exploring creative endeavors, usually related to photography. I am completely in love with Jesus Christ, because of his loving grace towards me. My hope in Him is what fuels me everyday and gives me purpose.
Who I am as a blogger?
In these pages you’ll find my journey of things I’m passionate about, such as motherhood, travel, style, and essential oils (a new passion!). I dabble in those thoughts and moments I’ve been going through as a first time parent. I try to re-live my recent adventures through travel guides and photo diaries. From time to time, I share recipes and DIY projects, where you can expect lots of baking and greenery. And every now and then, I love to share style posts with my take on minimalism and mindfulness of where my clothes are coming from. Lastly, you’ll find information about essential oils, and why I have chosen to incorporate them into my lifestyle.
Who I am as a photographer?
Photography has always been something I’ve been interested in. My first camera was a plastic, yellow, film camera that my Dad gave to me as a kid, which was mainly used for snapping photos of my stuffed animals. Any time I travel, bringing a camera is always a top priority, because I want to document my experiences and share those stories with my close friends and family. Recently, I’ve begun to capture families and have enjoyed catching those candid moments of joy and closeness. I tend to prefer shooting on cloudy days or during the evenings, when the light from the sunset creates a beautiful glow. If you are interested in having me capture your family photos, please send me an email.
