Q: What Does My Session Fee Cover:
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 prompts 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. Its more than just a photoshoot, it's a true experience that the family will talk about for years to come.
Q: What if we need more time - Extending Session - 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 find the standard single session is more than ample enough time for their family. If you need to allow for more time, please purchase 2 time slots.
Q: Can We Change Outfits During the Session: 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.
Q: Can I Bring My Own Props: We know Pintrest 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 fight on it's own and you will be amazed.
Q: What Happens if My Child Doesn't Cooperate: There is no guarantees that every child is ready to see and interact with joy with Santa. We have had a 97% success rate last year when we photographed several families. We will capture what is present. If there is a 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.
Q: Can I Bring Our Pet/Animal(s): Due to allergies of other families we no longer do sessions that include pets.
Q: Is this Just For Children or Can Other Family Members Participate in the Session: 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.
Q: How Old is Too Young? We have had them as young as 3 days old!
Q: How old is too old? If you are young at heart, you are always welcomed to participate!
