Goldpress Paper x Alissa Bell x Our Sacred Women | Photos by Ann-Marie Espinoza

A couple months back, I had the pleasure of photographing the process of Goldpress Paper’s “You got this, Mama!” card design being letterpressed at Alissa Bell’s pop-up studio at Kit + Ace in Pasadena.

Not only was the card (in collaboration with Our Sacred Women) created for a great cause, but it was so fun to connect with Alisha and Eileen over our shared experience of being moms to young babies. I first met Alisha at our favorite coffee shop last year (she came up to me and introduced herself and I was so impressed; I wish I was that brave!) and we have stayed in touch via social media ever since. Her son is only a month younger than Briar so we are in very similar boats when it comes to navigating toddlerhood while working from home (i.e. we have no idea what we are doing!).

It’s always a treat to see an artist’s studio in person and witness their process firsthand. I took a letterpress class in college so I have a basic understanding of how to letterpress but there’s nothing quite like watching a professional in action! Mesmerizing.
