Baby & Kid Boutiques Virginia Beach
These are not national brands or chains. These are locally own, curated and crafted boutique shops local to VA Beach, Chesapeake and Nor, but usually ship worldwide!
If I missed something, please let me know! I’d love to add it.
Hi I’m Alison, your chaos coordinator.
As the ringleader of my own 4 boy circus, I know how hard getting family photos can be.
If I could dress your kids and literally hang your family photos on your walls, I would.
…but I can’t, so I do just about everything else in between.
That’s why I take the time to hold your hand from start to finish.
Because what good are family photos if your kids never see them?
Our active duty USMC family is currently stationed in Virginia Beach near Norfolk, Chesapeake, and Hampton in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. I call Charleston SC home and go back as often as I can! I shoot families and weddings as travel permits. Check out more of my work in Charleston here.
Kids Retail Shops for babies & kids in Hampton Roads
- Sprout Children’s Boutique & Consignment
- Mom & Me Boutique
- Rock A Bye Baby OBX
- Little Peas Children’s Boutique
- Baby Bloom
Located in Hilltop Shopping Center, Sprout has a great variety of kids clothes in sizes newborn all the way up to girls and boys size 12. They’ve got toys, shoes, and great gift ideas.
For photos, they have coordinating outfits for almost all their sizes for every season & holiday.
Their consignment is limited but picky in a good way. They only accept boutique clothing for consignment which means you’re sifting through loads of clothes to get a good find.
Don’t be fooled, Mom & Me has a ton of maternity and baby gear store, but they’ve also got a specially curated line up of clothes for the whole family specifically for family photos! They’ve got Mom & Me collection and Dad & Me.
If you’re pregnant, go there first for maternity dresses, particularly for maternity photos. I’ve heard they’ve got a dress rental option? Trust, but verify that! These are the kind of dresses that will last into that 4th trimester and be super versatile even when not pregnant, so just buy it 🙂
Mom & Me is also located in Hilltop, with Sprout.
How I Style My Family of 6 for Photos
I have 4 boys and they didn’t match. Its definitely a puzzle but here are some tips:
- Texture is your friend
- Light color prints are ok
- You can mix plaids (shocker!)
Rocky A Bye Baby OBX – But in VA Beach
This is the sister store of a the original Rock A Bye Baby OBX in Nags Head, NC.
This is a traditional baby boutique that specializes in gifts and clothing for infants. Think swaddles, stuffed animals, toys, feeding accessories, etc.
They carry traditional southern outfit like bubbles, john-johns, all monogramed of course! But don’t expect to find sizes beyond 5T. They do have every season and holiday represented!
If Rock A Bye focuses on babies, Little Peas is focused on kids but their sizes do stop about 6/7 for both girls and boys.
They do carry newborn clothing and gifts. They’ve got all the accessories – bows, bracelets, diaper covers, and more.
Located on Battlefield Rd, Chesapeake, they also consign!
This is a booth inside the Painted Tree in Hilltop Shopping Center (nextdoor to Mom & Me).
Have you been to a Painted Tree? It’s a collection of booths rented out by local vendors. Its a great concept for entrepreneurs to launch a brick & mortar shop without much risk. Baby Bloom is one of those vendor booths.
Baby Stores Consignment in Hampton Roads
Most of these consignment shops are limited in what they accept. I appreciate that because that means I waste less time sorting through clothes! But it can be frustrating if you’re wanting to consign your own items. Check with each store about the their policies and what days they accept consigments!
