My name is Maileilani, hence the user name maileilani. Anyway, I am an amateur photographer and basically a student of life.

On occasion I am inspired enough to create using other mediums like painting, drawing, etc.

New Calendar

When in doubt...print!

I just printed out some of my works for the first time. Oh my gosh! I’ve come to the conclusion that if you ever doubt yourself and feel a little down and doubtful about your abilities as a photographer, print it! There’s something very reassuring about having a tangible print of your work! / Here are my favorites right now that I did print out and was pleasantly surprised to find…
