So I travelled from Long Beach Island, NJ (my hometown) to Honolulu, Hawaii to attend this epic workshop for photographers called Hi On Life. Of course we (my husband and I) extended our trip and were able to explore the island a little bit.
Going back to the photography conference... I literally had the BEST TIME OF MY LIFE. I met some amazing photographers from (mostly Canada) but all over the world. By the way.. Canadians are SO NICE.
We had a shootout at Eternity Beach with three beautiful models hosted by Julie Paisley & Jeremy Chou. I love that I live at the beach, but I wish we had more scenic backgrounds like this beach!
Anyway.. After the conference, I felt so inspired to better my photography business, and I learned SO much there. If given the chance, I would definitely do this again.
My best photographer friend Nicole Hoffman (Nicole Klym Photography) and her husband Frank also came to Hawaii. Our husbands hung out while we attended the conference, but we were able to meet up with them before and after the conference.
We saw turtles....cats..puppies....rainbows...beautiful sunsets and sunrises....and lots and lots of waves (at the North Shore)
Here are some highlights from the trip :-)
This photo made the news that night in Hawaii!

Met an amazing photographer Megan Noll and her adorable little girl Emmie.
Some of the best photographers in the world right here! Such a pleasure to learn from them and even better.. to hang with them.
