We are really thrilled to announce that the illustrator for Happy Baby, Happy Family will be Helen Braid from Ellie Illustrates. Anyone who’s anyone in Mummy Blogging will know Helen’s work as @EllieAllAtSea – the designer to go to for parenting blogs.
“I’m so thrilled to be working with Sarah and Amy Beeson, creating their images for Happy Baby, Happy Family,’ said Helen. ‘Capturing some of the earliest moments with baby from the visual perspective of the mother is a real first and I’m more than a little excited to be entrusted with such a special project.’
Helen has over 14 years experience. We just loved her style as soon as we looked through her portfolio and felt her images would connect with today’s parents’ experiences. Her work uses a mix of graphics, illustration and water-colour painting, and together we’re hoping to create something very special.
Helen is a working mum, running her own business from a small studio on the West Coast of Scotland. As working mums ourselves it is so nice to be collaborating with another Mumpreneur not only for her talent but because it is important that women support each other. We first connected with Helen on Twitter, and I’m sure she’d agree, there is a very powerful network of mums who offer each other professional and personal support on social media and that often translates into the business world.
We hope our readers will be as delighted as we are at the illustrations Helen has created for Happy Baby, Happy Family: Learning to trust yourself and enjoy your baby published by HarperCollins May/June 2015 RRP £9.99.
