As a full service custom photographer part of my job is to help clients plan their session.  One aspect of the planning session is of course what to wear! Dressing your children can be the most fun and so can helping parents shop for children clothing. For some this is an easy task but for others it can be a huge task figuring out what to wear.  (hey, they made a TV show about this, with experts and all … we know the struggle is real!)

Most stores offer children clothing and we all know the girls section is 3x the size of the boys but that doesn’t mean the styles are any less creative.  To help with the search we’ve put together some of our favorite places to shop for children’s clothes. 

  1. Alex and Alexa
    Offers high end clothing like Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, and Burberry.
    They carry trendy and fashion forward looks for babies to children age 13.
  2. GAP
    We’ve all see the gap kids ads.  Their classic clean styling is always trendy and creates portraits that really focus on the main subject- your children.
  3. Children’s Place
    This is one of my favorite places.  They offer great styles both classic and trendy at great prices.  Almost all their clothing can be mix and matched together to create your child’s unique style.
  4. Little English
    This company makes those classic styles like grandma made for us when we were small.  Dresses with smocking, rompers, and monogram layette which are great for a classic smash the cake session.
  5. Janie and Jack
    This is one of my favorite places!  They offer high end classic styles and all the accessories to match.  From riding pants and boots with the matching cape to sailing shorts and tops you can’t go wrong with any of their collections! Oh and the swimwear!!!!!
