Palm Tree Adventure | Oahu Family Photographer

One of my favorite places to shoot at is the palm tree "jungle". Being from the Northeast of Brazil where palm trees grow everywhere, I am always drawn to this beautiful and exotic tree that screams "tropical". Hard to believe that here in Oahu we have a hard time finding lots of palm trees at every beach!

This family wanted a tropical vibe to their shoot and we decided this location on the North Shore would be the perfect spot - and it was. We explored the palm tree jungle and enjoyed the warm sunlight that was coming through the trees. It was epic.

I had just learned how to make a haku (floral crown) and decided to try my hand at one with just plumerias. Man, I respect our floral vendors so much! It's hard work making it look picture worthy! But I think I managed just fine <3
