Lives In: El Barrio [Spanish Harlem]
About Me: The short story? I made my way to New York for college, fell in love with it (and a man), had a kid, started a business and now here I am.
I went to school for photography, but fell in love with retouching, and I worked as a retoucher until my daughter Olive was born. Then I made the choice to take a break from my career so I could spend time with her and watch her grow, and I am so happy I did!! She was my inspiration for Petite Soul. Ever since she was a tiny little babe, I put my childhood bonnets on her. When they no longer fit her, I looked everywhere for sweet and simple bonnets, and there wasn't any! My partner Stef and I wondered why there wasn't any cool caps for little boys? Stef was bored of the standard beanie for her son Calvin, which brought us to our bandit...Since we couldn't find any cool bonnets or bandits we decided to make our own! And its been such an amazing journey. We started off with just an idea and it has grown into much more...we are so excited to see where this will go!
