My Top 8 Brands for Children's Clothing

Updated: May 3, 2022

If you've ever coordinated family photo outfits, you know how hard it can be to get everyone looking great! That outfit that you thought would work for your son...yeah, he's grown two inches; and now the pants are way too short! And those shoes that you thought would be perfect for your daughter...well, they pinch her toes and she refuses to wear them. So now it's a couple days before your shoot, and you're scouring stores, trying to find great clothes. Sound familiar? Well, fear not! Here are my favorite brands for kids' clothing!

Now, full disclaimer, some of these require ordering ahead of time. So make sure to think about your family's outfits at least a few weeks before your shoot if you're thinking of ordering from some of these online boutiques.

Carter's has always been a favorite of mine! They have quality clothing, are almost always running a sale, and their newest neutral line fits perfectly with my aesthetic! And *bonus* you probably have one in your hometown! I know we do in Erie, PA!

Old Navy is another great staple, not just for children's clothing, but for adults as well! You can really outfit the whole family in one trip to the store! So if you're looking for last minute kids' shirts but also a dress for mom, Old Navy might be just the store for you!

Joyfolie is my go to for pretty, flowy dresses! They're not too pricey, ship relatively quickly, and photograph beautifully!

I absolutely love Jamie Kay clothing for toddlers! Boys/girls, they make everything, and they make it adorable!

Bailey's Blossoms is an online retailer that I've ordered from a few times, and I've loved their items! They run great sales and have cute onesies and dresses!

Is your girl looking for a dress she can twirl in? Look no further! This brand makes comfy, twirly, beautiful dresses that your daughter won't want to ditch after your shoot!

Land's End has everything you're looking for when it comes to outfits! They have bold and bright, playful and fun, as well as conservative and classic. They have high quality clothing that will last.

Boden's clothes have a bright, playful aesthetic that your kids will love! They're high quality and so fun!

Last, but certainly not least, is Amazon! Yup, you can find pretty much anything on Amazon! Need a 2T pinafore dress for your little girl? Amazon! Need suspenders and a matching bowtie for your little guy? Amazon! One word of caution about ordering clothing, though; make sure to read the reviews. Sometimes the actual product doesn't match the just make sure to do your homework before clicking the "Buy Now" button.
