Sweet little Eden, look at all these people who're so happy that you're here! I'm easily another. Look at that face!

Richmond Doula Project's Ancient Song Doula Training

Ancient Song Doula Services offers quality Doula Services to Women of Color and Low Income Families who otherwise would not be able to afford Doula Care in Brooklyn, NY.

Ancient Song also offers full-spectrum doula training — a training focused on the "whole" person and experience, seeing birth as a human right. It tackles hard issues like sexual trauma, domestic violence, discrimination, advocacy, cultural competence and more... It focuses on women of color, low income areas,  undocumented persons, and those families who want the best quality care by advocating and making informed decisions about their care.

Through grassroots fundraising (thank you again to those who donated to my participation!) Ancient Song Doula Services came to Richmond this June and trained 18 doulas with the Richmond Doula Project.

What's the Richmond Doula Project? We're a POC and LGBTQ-centered collective of doulas seeking to offer free doula support through all pregnancy outcomes to those who would not otherwise be able to afford it in Richmond. We're in early organizing stages right now; this training was one of our first solid steps toward equipping our group with the skills necessary to provide this support. I look forward to sharing much more about this project in the near future!

Perfectly Knit Together Logo Design

Designing for this wonderful doula was such a pleasure! I enjoyed playing around with the knitting concept to showcase how her work brings parents together and supports them holistically throughout their journey into parenthood (for the first time or another round of it!).


DYG Design Creative Challenge: Paper Wedding

I'm so so so loving this series I created for my friend Ida as a part of her business, DYG Design's Creative Challenge. With inspiration from my lovely engaged friend Alyson (who is also an incredible artist), I developed this simple black and white sample wedding invitation package with fun, elegant illustrated detail, from save the date to reception card! 

***because this was a sample for the challenge, the date and location are totally made up! If you know Alyson and Roberto, this isn't their actual wedding information!***
