Shopping For Your Family Session

The Woodlands Family Photographer

I love it when we get to mix and match or even have time for a quick outfit change. It adds variety to a session and a personal touch. But where does everyone always get those cute outfits?! If you’re like me, you never get to go to the store- I haven’t seen the inside of a grocery store since Walmart started doing free pick up, and forget about browsing my local Target. So, if you are short on time like I am, here is my go-to list to make shopping a breeze!

Here are my favorite places to look for cute outfits for your next session!

Favorite Places to Shop

Price points: $-cheap, $$-average, $$$-high, $$$$-expensive


  1. Alice & Ames Fun, twirly, classic dresses for girls $$$$

  2. HM.com I consider H&M the holy grail for all things boy and men. Their price point is ridiculously low, and the clothes are my favorite. Their trouser pants are around $10 and are amazing quality. Amazing. Keep in mind that H&M sizes are a little different, and they run big. If your son is an average size 4, buy him the size 3-4 pants. The 4-5 seems like the obvious choice, but they’ll be too long and too big around the waist. $-$$

  3. Zara.com This site is not so much my secret anymore but I’m ok with it. There are so many adorable pieces and accessories. Check it out! $$-$$$$

  4. Joyfolie.com So many shoes! For girls and women. And if you’re looking for layers- amazing dresses, jackets, caplets. $$$$

  5. Forever21.com Cute clothes for women of all sizes (and men!) on the cheap. I get a little lost here to be honest but their deals are too amazing not to check out. $-$$

  6. Remie Girl I absolutely love this shop so much- think Alice and Ames! $$

  7. Hannah Anderson All the basics for boys and girls in adorable fun patterns and colors. This is a go-to for me for sure (they even have family pj sets!) $$$
