Awesome monogram illustration detail! I'm not sure if the Hellenic and Bauer Bodoni necessarily work well together though. They are so similar, yet the proportions are just different enough that they kind of clash? Maybe stick to one or the other for both the full name & the monogram?

Jen, just noticed that the spherical ornament (an acorn, maybe?) was left off on the right side of "ethan" :)

Beautiful illustration- love the dragonfly! I think there might be a better layout option. I feel like there should be more white space . . . maybe a more rectangular and less square photo . . . also, I'm not sold on the ivory border around the photo. Hope this helps!
