Your Session Investment Covers the Following:
One on one session private with Santa in a totally live interactive experience. This isn't a traditional photography session that has standard poses, but a live photojournalist documentation of the family's interaction with Santa. We have over 15+ different interactive triggers that Santa will naturally flow through depending on the age and cooperation of the participants. Santa will read, sing, place candy canes and other decorations on the tree, and a whole lot more. While this is all happening we will be capturing every moment. If there is time at the end we can do the old school staged sit in Santa's lap photo, but this is not the focus on what the Santa Experience is all about.
It's more than just a photoshoot, it's a true experience that the family will talk about for years to come. The session includes a print package:
(1) 8x10, (2) 5x7s and your choice of (3) 4x6s or (8) wallets (all of the same 1 selected image).
Extending the session allows extra time which works perfectly for larger families, children with special needs, potential uncooperative children (those scared of Santa), and first timers that are nervous about knowing if they have enough time. Many families have made this a long term tradition and over the years they fnd the standard single session is more than ample enough time for their family.
The session time slot is very strict, so any changing of clothing will take away from shooting time. The time slot can not be extended based on this lost time. We recommend coming already in outfits, PJ's etc prior to arrival and checking in.
We know Pinterest ideas are all the rage, but we can not guarantee the usage of any external props. Thousands of dollars have been invested for a beautiful upscale interactive set with many triggers that we already have tested. Let the magic of the Santa Experience take flight on it's own and you will be amazed.
There is no guarantees that every child is ready to see and interact with joy with Santa. The Santa Experience has had a 97% success rate in the last 8 years of photographing hundreds upon hundreds of families. We will capture what is present. If there is resistance we can not force happiness and joy on a child. We can however do a "Drop and Run" and have fun images you can show off to their first date when they are teenagers.
Due to allergies of other families cannot do sessions that include pets.
This is not exclusive to just children. The entire family can participate as well. Keep in mind the more people in the set the more crowded the photos and less attention on the little ones.
We have had them as young as 3 days old!
If you are young at heart, you are always welcomed to participate!
No. Because of scheduling concerns, we need you to make a reservation in advance so we know what to plan for.
