Maui Photographers for Kaua‘i Launch Mini-Photo Session FundraiserApril 22, 2018, 6:03 AM HST · Updated April 22, 6:12 AM Wendy Osher · 0 Comments
More than 20 Maui-based photographers have rallied together to offer photo mini-sessions to island residents at a discounted rate as a Maui Photographers for Kaua’i fundraiser for flood relief.
Maui photographer Angela Nelson launched the effort after hearing of the historic flood that dropped more than three feet of rain over parts of Kauaʻi last weekend.
“I was devastated. Kaua’i is my spirit island – the place that calls me back a few times a year (I went there FOUR times last year and even had my maternity photos done there) and the spot I always want to visit when life gets crazy. And the thought that I couldn’t be there to physically help the communities affected made me so sad, ” said Nelson in her photography blog.
As a photographer, she described her first visit to Hanalei as a truly magical place saying, “A half-moon bay of golden sands meets sparkling blue waters with mountains erupting out of the ground. There are waterfalls cascading down the cliff-side and greenery engulfing inch of the mountain.”
Since launching the effort this week, Nelson said she’s had amazing response from the community of photographers and some have already sold out of time slots.
Maui Photographers for Kaua’i is offering mini-sessions (most of them on April 29, 2018) around the island of Maui with 100% of the proceeds to benefit a local non profit organization Mālama Kauaʻi.
Funds will be used to benefit the victims of last weeks disastrous flood in Kauaʻi
