valentine’s day giveaway {free photo session!!}

No matter your relationship status during this time of year, we can’t ignore the roses, cards, chocolate, chocolate cake, chocolate cupcakes, chocolate ice cream… choc… oh sorry, I got distracted… and, of course, LOVE. Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and I truly hope there is LOVE in your life. Love is a beautiful thing and whether it’s with your soulmate, your best friend, your family, your dog or your cat… everyone deserves LOVE in their life because there is ALWAYS more room for it. You may have to take some huge risks to find it or get hurt in the process, but we all deserve to find it in any form and we’ve got to keep fighting for it. Love is louder than so many things and I, personally, hope to find true love someday so I can share my heart with someone who wants to share their heart with me.

Anywhoo… so where am I going with this you ask?? Well, thanks for sticking with me because it’s time for a GIVEAWAY!!!

day trip to joshua tree

A few weeks ago, Forty One Twenty headed out to the desert to test out some new toys. I decided to tag along and document the day of shooting, climbing and exploring the gorgeous terrain of Joshua Tree. Here are a few shots from our day!

Six months ago…

Six months ago today, my photography business re-launched with a new and improved brand and web presence. That day in December was the culmination of months of hard work, brand “therapy”, personal goal setting, strategy and development with B!G Deal Branding. It was, by far, the scariest venture and risk I’ve encountered in my career. However, I KNEW I’d chosen the best team to work with and the final product was exactly what I wanted. I’ve received so much positive feedback from the new brand and hearing exactly what I hoped to hear, which is that this new brand is totally ME. That was the most important aspect in this whole process was identifying who I am, who my ideal client is, etc. This journey is far from over, but I know that I have a strong platform to work from and a brand that will help me pursue my dreams and accomplish the goals I’ve set for myself. Thank you to all who encouraged me through the process and to the B!G Deal Team for an incredible journey in business, entrepreneurship and friendship. Cheers to six months and many many more!!

From the B!G Deal Blog post launch…


As I’ve said before, running a business on your own is not easy, but it’s more than worth it for the people I meet and the places I visit. Some of you know that I recently traveled to Italy…here are a few snapshots from my trip! Full recap coming soon!

Ciao! Arrivederci! {Italy 2013}

Almost a year ago, I said farewell to one of my best friends and her family as they moved to Italy for the next three years. There was no doubt that I would go visit them someday. Well, friends, that someday is NEXT WEEK!!! EEK!!! Exactly one year to the day that they left! I can’t believe it’s finally here and I’m SO excited. Excited to see friends I’ve missed SO much over the last year. Excited to eat so much pasta, pizza and gelato til my belly hurts. Excited to take photos of anything and everything that comes across my path. Excited to enjoy two weeks of Italian bliss…

I will throw in a little work here and there and will be checking emails, but thank you in advance for your patience as I’m not sure how much internet connection I’ll have while traveling. To all of my mom-to-be clients & friends, I’ll be thinking of you and can’t wait to meet your little ones as soon as I get back!!

Here are a few family photos of the Burketts taken the day before they left for Italy…
