Important Information & FAQs
How long will sessions be? All Santa sessions will be 15 min long. This time will be spent with your private meet and greet time with Santa while we click away and capture these special memories.
What can we expect during our session? You will be brought into the studio and welcomed into a magical Christmas set where Santa will be waiting for you. We will occasionally give you gentle guidance, but the intention is to capture the true experience for you. You will be able to pre-select some Santa wishlist template sheets that we will send to you ahead of time. These match the sessions and you are encouraged to have your child(ren) use them to give a wishlist to Santa. They aren't mandatory, but are super handy!
Can I bring my own camera? Please leave your cameras at home and we encourage you to leave your phones in your bags. We do not work off of one tripod location and pride ourselves on capturing all the special interactions with your little ones. We want you to be able to enjoy this moment with Santa.
What happens if my children cry? We understand, children cry. It's not uncommon for little ones to sometimes be nervous, even when meeting Santa. Please come dressed and be ready to be in photos. We unfortunately cannot offer extra time as these are limited spots. Even if you aren't planning on having a family photo with Santa, you may need to be in the photo to make your child(ren) feel more comfortable.
Who can join in our session? For these sessions we require 1 session time per immediate family. We want to make sure to have our focus on each individual child, which is why we recommend booking two spots if you have more than 3 children. If you wish to book back to back sessions with another family we are happy to do that as well, but still recommend only having one immediate family with Santa at a time.
Do you have set options for these sessions? Unfortunately no. Unlike our other Christmas Mini sessions, these limited edition sessions will have one main set to visit Santa in. We promise, it's both beautiful and magical!
Please arrive on time! Please plan to arrive on time. Your session cannot be extended beyond your 15 min. We cannot make any exceptions for this. To ensure you are able to utilize the full benefits of your private session, please arrive on time and ready to go. This does include full outfits, hair etc.
Can we bring multiple outfits? As the session time is only 15 min we recommend 1 outfit only as we want you to be able to maximize your session time.
When do we receive our photos? You will receive your photos 7-10 days after your session. They will be delivered in a watermarked online gallery for you to view and select your images. We offer options for additional digital files, prints, keepsake ornaments, custom Christmas cards and keepsake frames if you would like to order once receiving your proofs.
