I attended a conference in Maui in January 2016 and created friendships with many awesome photographers here in Hawaii. We decided we needed another meet-up this year, so I went to Maui for a weekend in February. Being able to talk with other ladies that are here on the islands and know the ups and downs of this business is helpful. I left refreshed and inspired. I was also really happy that we were able to make a little time to shoot around Maui, since I wasn’t able to see much of it last year. It was still pretty quick since the first couple of days were raining, but I got a rainbow and explored downtown Wailuku with lots of cute little shops, signs and one seriously mind-blowing, amazing mural.
