Are you looking for a haku lei to wear for your oahu family photo session? I love when families incorporate flowers into their family photos. It keeps your hair from flying everywhere at windy locations, and its really just perfect on any windy day since I don’t reschedule due to wind unless its 25-30 mph. It also smells and looks beautiful in photos!


There are two small businesses that I refer clients to for flowers especially if they are looking for a lei po’o/haku lei/flower crown.


Haumea Designs

Arleen creates the most beautiful flower crowns! She used to live in the San Francisco Bay Area, but she recently moved to Oahu and I am SO excited to have her here with me! Her haku leis are between $55-85 plus tax depending on the size of the lei. She prefers orders 2 weeks in advance but will accept orders the week of the shoot, which I know is really helpful for some families.

Follow her at @haumeadesigns on instagram, and email her at to place an order

Eco Mindful Lei

I stumbled upon this small business while searching for businesses that make haku’s and I am so glad I found her! Her work is beautiful. I have actually never spoken with her before but I know that my clients haku’s and flower pieces that she has made are stunning. Her website is Pricing for a medium lei is $65, 1/2 crown, & $45 for a Keiki crown. Please note: she needs 5 weeks notice for all leis as she is very busy
