Styling Ideas – Tutu du Monde for Girls

I have so much fun browsing online for unique and gorgeous clothing for kids. Well, mostly girls because their clothes are usually much cuter. (Having a boy does present a good challenge for me though, and I will be blogging about my online finds for boys and also for gender neutral clothing.) I tell myself all this online shopping is okay because, hey, I need to style my shoots. 😀

I will say that I appreciate photos of all types, and especially the day-to-day photos that document what everyday life is like. I feel that nostalgic appreciation when I look back at photos, and when my daughter flips through albums from her babyhood and young toddler years (being 5 doesn’t leave many years to look back upon). If this is the type of photo session a client is looking for, that’s great! But it is also fun to style a shoot with out of the ordinary clothing.

I purchased this Tutu du Monde onesie from Koko & Blush during one of their sales. These pieces can get expensive, but they carry high resale value (just do an eBay search; there are also Facebook resell groups). This particular model is called “Stop the Clock”. My daughter Doc was in it for about an hour for this shoot. Take a look at how the clothing adds another dimension to the photographs.









All children and family session clients receive a prep guide that has a listing of my favorite shops for unique children’s clothing. I also enjoy learning about other vendors who sell photogenic clothes, so please let me know if you have suggestions! I’m always happy to work hand in hand with clients to make your session perfect for you and your family’s style.
