I met the Esslinger family – Paul, Heather, Elijah and Alina – years ago through the family I nannied for. They’ve become great friends over the years through all of the summertime cookouts, cornhole competitions and Oktoberfest celebrations! Needless to say, when Heather reached out to me to see if I would do a family session for her feature in DoTerra Essential Oil’s Leadership magazine, I jumped all over it!
I’ve known that the Esslinger’s have taken a more natural approach to wellness in including essential oils in their home, but I’ve really enjoyed learning “the why” behind her passion more than anything in this process. In short, the Esslinger littles were both born with digestive issues. Having been a neonatal nurse for 16 years, Heather was very familiar with modern medicine but believed more could be accomplished with natural alternatives. In order to find new ways to care for her family, she began grasping for alternative ways to support their health. After four years and to this day, she speaks so passionately about this new way of caring for her family because of the difference it has made in their lives.
This family really does celebrate life and health in every aspect of their day to day, and they strive to empower others to do the same. My goal with their session was really just to capture them in their element as they embrace every part of healthy living.
Esslinger fam – we love you guys! Thanks so much for letting me be a part of documenting such a big part of your lives!
