Petite Cabane

This is my absolute favorite shop for picture clothing. Petite Cabane,, is a local children's boutique on Maple in downtown Birmingham. They carry beautiful European style clothing for babies and children. Outfits from Petite Cabane are classic and most importantly, high quality. You can shop in store or conveniently online.

The Studio Wardrobe

To save you time and money, the Daley Lens offers a Studio Wardrobe. From sizes 3 months to about 3 years, the studio wardrobe offers a wonderful selection of clothing options available for your baby or children to use at your session. The studio wardrobe can be viewed here:

Borrow From a Friend

Have a sister or friend who always dresses their children in the cutest outfits? Ask them to help you style your kids for picture day. Chances are, they would love to help & would love their favorite clothing pieces to get more use. If they don't have outfits that will work for your children, they can probably point you in the direction of their favorite shops.

Zara and H&M

As much as I try to shop local and support smaller retailers, I have to admit that Zara and H&M are nice spots for baby knits. Their soft, affordable knitwear is cozy for baby and photographs really well. I also find that their sizing is more true to size than other big box stores.
