As a baby and family photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area, one things I frequently get asked is where clients can buy clothes for their upcoming photography sessions. Based in San Francisco, and with a few locations throughout the Bay Area, Sprout is one boutique I recommend. They focus on organic and natural children and baby products, and have six boutiques in the SF Bay Area and beyond.
The organic boutique store is known for selling goods that are manufactured without any toxic chemicals added to the mix. Toxic chemicals not included in Sprout products include toxic dyes, perfumes, PVC, pesticides, and formaldehyde. Sprout avoids products that use these chemicals among many other components that can pose a risk to infants and children.
A mother herself, founder Suzanne Price learned that shopping for all-natural baby products proved to be difficult in her area. So, using what she learned about organically produced goods, she launched Sprout with the goal of providing the best, healthiest, and safest products for children.
Some items parents can find at Sprout include stuffed toys made out of cotton and colored with organic dyes, play furniture built with water-based components not containing any VOC health hazards, toxin-free baby bottles, and even hygienics such as baby cream created with flower and fruit extracts.
Other than its main San Francisco headquarters, Bay Area locals can also find Sprout in downtown Mill Valley and Palo Alto. They even have an e-commerce website so those who aren’t local can make purchases online.
Their attention to quality is one of the company’s biggest strengths among its competitors. When parents enter a Sprout children’s boutique, their be greeted with a welcoming atmosphere both in aesthetics and experience!
Sprout also organizes regular events such as classes for first-time and beyond mothers. The classes focus on topics such as breast and bottle feeding, sleep routines, separation anxiety, and many other discussions. With an estimated 10,000 followers on Facebook and 19,000 followers on Instagram (as of this writing), it’s safe to say Sprout is a top choice for parents!
Local moms write glowing reviews about the business! One Elite Yelp reviewer shared the superb service she received from the San Francisco branch. “This is an adorable spot to gear up for your new baby or purchase a baby shower gift. They’ve got a lot of unique brands as well as the big ones and they take the time to show you the features of whatever item you’re looking at,” she says. Adding onto her rave review, she comments, “Every experience I’ve had with the staff there has been educational and pleasant.”
Sprout is definitely a great option for children’s outfits for your next bay area family photo session! The organic indigo dot collection would be very sweet for an in-home lifestyle newborn photography session, and the pink chiffon sleeveless dress would be beautiful for a San Francisco baby photo session. Have a look and I’m sure you’ll find something just right to coordinate for your photo session!
