i'd love to hear from you!
One-year portrait photo sessions are a whole lot of fun, but finding your child the perfect outfit can feel overwhelming. As a baby photographer in Los Angeles, I regularly assist my clients with their session wardrobe styling. I find that I’m always pulling options from the same stores and online retailers. Here are my 5 favorite places to shop for a one-year session.
5 great places to find a photoshoot outfit for your one-year-old
Where to find it: https://www.zara.com/us/
What you’ll find: Fashion forward styles for 6-months and up.
What I love: I can almost always find something at Zara for a baby photoshoot. With tons of choices, great quality, and very reasonable prices, Zara is one of my favorite places to shop for babies, toddlers, and kids. You’ll find plenty of neutral tones and wonderful textures. I especially love their knits for one-year sessions.
2. Rylee + Cru
Where to find it: https://ryleeandcru.com
What you’ll find: Organic baby clothes in earthy tones and subtle patterns.
What I love: More than anything, I love the colors over at Rylee + Cru. Their muted greens, blues, and pinks are the perfect choice for adding a bit of color without veering into the overly bright. I especially love their overalls for boys and balloon rompers for girls. Their cotton crepe material photographs beautifully.
Where to find it: https://shopnoralee.com
What you’ll find: Timeless dresses and rompers that feel a tiny bit dressed up.
What I love: My favorite thing about Noralee is that their styles are truly classic. Their dresses look as though they could be heirlooms, passed down for generations. If you’d like something that feels a little less everyday and a bit more “special occasion”, Noralee is perfect place to start your search.
Where to find it: https://www.maisonette.com
What you’ll find: A curated collection of the best American and European brands.
What I love: I love that Maisonette has done the work of sourcing quality baby clothes for me. I know I’ll only be looking at clothing with classic appeal and beautiful quality. There is plenty of variety and I always find something a little unexpected.
5. The Simple Folk
Where to find it: https://thesimplefolk.co
What you’ll find: Organic and earthy baby clothes.
What I love: While some of their clothing is a little too earthy for my taste, they have plenty of options that work well for one-year sessions. For example, I absolutely love Simple Folk’s linen options for babies. Their linen shirts and rompers are special without being fussy. I also appreciate the neutral colors and muted tones on offer.
