I like to work with you at your comfort level to come up with the final design you love and can be proud to share with the world. I won’t severely limit your choices, and I’ll work hard to capture your vision in a professional and beautiful design.

Please plan to give attribution to the photographer/artist if you use any images that are not personally yours. Attribution would look something like “Book Design by Rachael Ritchey. Photography elements thanks to [photographer/artist name here]/pixabay.com” (attribution is not required, but if it was your work you’d probably like credit for it, right? 🙂 )
