Launching a collection of fine art travel photography prints is something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now, which is why I’m honored and thrilled to announce that Live Like it’s the Weekend photography prints are finally here!
In collaboration with Idyll Collective, a gallery of fine art travel photography from around the world, we’ve curated some of my favorite photographs from past travels to offer them for purchase.
After weeks spent sifting through images from past trips, I landed on a curated selection of photographs that I’ve taken in some of my all-time favorite destinations: Portugal, California, Bali, and South Africa to start. I’m hoping more will be coming soon!
For now, I hope you love the images we’ve selected and feel inspired to add them to your home. To check out all of the prints in the collection, scroll below or shop the full collection here.
What Can You Expect From Each Travel Photography Print?
The reason why I decided to partner with Idyll Collective on my first collection of prints was because of their dedication to quality and the fact that they not only do the printing, they finalize the framing as well.
All Idyll Collective prints are offered in five different sizes and three different framing options to ensure they elevate your space in the way that best suits your style.
I love that their prints are framed and ready to go once they arrive at your door, so you can enjoy them as soon as they are delivered without having to go through the additional hassle of framing separately.
Here’s a quick look at what you can expect from the quality and process of purchasing a print through Idyll Collective’s gallery.
Framing: Each print is available in wood frames in either a black, natural or white option. Each frame is protected by UV blocking acrylic.
Shipping: All U.S. orders come with free shipping. Currently Idyll Collective can only accommodate 30″ x 42″ frames for international orders.
Quality: Each photo is expertly printed on Hanhenmuhle photo rag 308gsm paper using archival inks to ensure museum quality.

The Print Collection
Below are the 9 prints offered in the initial fine art print collection with Idyll Collective. Hopefully we will continue to add more in the future, but I hope you love this first group we’ve curated!
This shot was taken in Lagos, Portugal during a day exploring the Algarve Coast. This area of Portugal is one of my favorite destinations of all time and is such an idyllic summer locale. My friend and I popped into the cutest boutique hotel, Casa Mae, for lunch and I couldn’t get enough of this scene in their back courtyard with these perfectly placed lounge chairs.
During a solo escape to Santa Barbara last November, I shot these palms while enjoying a pink sunset as the moon rose in perfect alignment in the sky. This moment felt like the ultimate California scene to include in the collection as it represents how near and dear this state is to me and my life in between travels.
In the summer of 2018 I spent a month in Portugal, renting an apartment in Lisbon and exploring around the neighboring regions. The trams in Lisbon are such an iconic part of the landscape there and I came home from that trip with hundreds of shots of them, naturally. This was one of my favorites as it captures two passing trams at once, giving a greater sense of the buzzing movement of the city as trams whiz in and out of the cobblestone streets.
I love the classic Spanish architecture that is pervasive across California, and my stay at Hotel Californian in Santa Barbara gave me all the feels. This little nook on the property featured perfect framing of the gorgeous architecture with a faded view of the state’s iconic palm trees and the Santa Ynez Mountains in the background. I couldn’t help but snap away, of course.
During the spring of 2018, I decided to travel to South Africa for a month to visit a friend who was living in Cape Town at the time. I immediately fell in love with the seaside city and its epic landscapes with the most stunning beaches backing up to winding cliff roads and mountains dipping in and out of low hanging clouds. To this day, I’m still convinced that Cape Town is the prettiest city on the planet.
This photo was taken early on in the trip on my first beach day with friends at Clifton Beach. I loved how these matching turquoise umbrellas were so perfectly placed on the sand and I couldn’t resist snapping a shot.
On our final morning in Death Valley, we woke up well before sunrise to trek across the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes to catch the light coming up over sand. It was a wild experience walking out in the pitch dark only to see the otherworldly landscape come alive before our eyes as the sun rose high into the sky.
I was particularly taken by this super simple sand dune and the way the deep shadows were falling across each grainy layer. To me, this shot feels calming and puts me in a place of relaxation.
Amankila on the Eastern Coast of Bali is hands down the most luxurious place I’ve ever stayed in the world. Beyond the incredible hospitality and accommodations, I was taken by the stunning three-tiered pool that was designed as an ode to the iconic rice fields of the region. I love to look back at this shot and imagine cozying up in this lounge chair for the day gazing out to the sea.
My recent trip to Death Valley was one of my all-time favorites for photography, simply due to how unique and varied the landscapes are all within a relatively short distance.
We arrived at the Zabriskie Point overlook at golden hour and stayed through sunset, watching the light change the colors of the stone before our eyes. My favorite moment though was this backpack-clad hiker in black who walked through this scene right at the perfect moment as I was snapping the golden rays shining across the rock formations.
While road tripping down the Portugal coast, my friend and I stayed a couple nights in the surf town of Carrapateira, which is a lesser-known village on the western coast of the Algarve.
To reach this beach, we walked over quite a long stretch of sand and over a dune before we were met with this local surfer’s paradise. My favorite view though was from the cliffside boardwalk above the beach that made for the perfect symmetrical framing of the bay below.
