In 2018 (check out page 1!), I was still a postpartum doula. One of the services I offered was writing birth stories. A friend and mentor asked, “Why don’t you take it up a notch and design beautiful books?” Great question, why not?! Here it is: a throwback to the first book ever designed.
This mama is a dear friend who has had a journey of love, grief, resiliency, healing, and probably every emotion in between. It brings me great joy to know this book is in their home and she and her son can read it every year.
This book also serves as a reminder of my growth as a designer. It will forever hold a special place in my heart. And it’s a good reminder: no matter the age of your child or how YRSTRY reads, there are no bad photos. Pick your favourites, and they will be perfect.
