People often ask me what are my favourite shops selling cute, classic, stylish children’s and baby clothing. Before each session, I give my clients guidance on the type of clothing that looks good in photos – clothing is a really important factor in the resulting look of your photos.
So, I thought it might be helpful to outline my favourite stores for baby and children’s gear.
First off though, a couple of disclaimers:
~ I have a very stylish mother-in-law who loves to shop and my children are beneficiaries of this – so much so that I don’t need to buy many clothes for my children.
~ I am not much of a shopper – I prefer to spend my precious free time otherwise and the idea of shopping with children in tow is not my idea of fun!
~ Ironic as it is given the fact I have 4 children, I am a wannabe minimalist. I like to have small wardrobes with limited numbers of clothes – I am a “quality over quantity” kind of girl.
~ I shop online if possible and avoid going into malls. Malls make me feel queasy as a general rule. The only exception to this, is my local store “Hatch” in Eastridge Mall, Kepa Road, Mission Bay. I love this shop to bits and visit quite often to sniff the baby merino and organic cotton.
Now that I have that out of the way…..
