Who are Santa Sessions for?
Santa sessions are designed for all families, babies and children even teenagers, and parents and grandparents are welcome and encouraged to join.
Classic clothing within a neutral colour palette such as, white, cream, grey, pastels, or tan is suggested. Alternatively, little girls in Christmas red is always a hit!!. Once your time is booked you will receive a clothing guide of suggested items & links where to find them.
Can we change outfits?
Only one outfit is permitted during your session; NO outfit changes are permitted once your time with Santa begins.
Do you Edit the images?
Yes, I am known for my classic, and timeless look and feel. Much of that comes in post-processing. However, because these are narrative (storytelling) mini sessions they are lightly edited.
Refunds and Discounts
Due to the nature of this event and limited time slots and limited availability, there are no refunds.
However, there is a Facebook group created to swap/exchange with other booked families
How long before I receive my images?
After our session. ,with 5 - 10 days you will receive a digital online gallery. From there, you will "favorite" your 5 included images. Upgrade options are available via the shop.

Are Pets allowed?
Pets are allowed but must remain under control and on lead at all times.
Is this a Covid safe event?
We will do our best to provide a safe environment for you and your family. We will follow the usual covid safe practices.
What if my children are crying?
We cannot guarantee smiles, and there might be tears. Please know that if your child is crying, I will not force them to sit on Santa's lap. Santa will not leave to room, due to the tight schedule we are on. Santa, (Mrs. Claus,) and I have quite a few tricks to hopefully allow us at least one smiling picture, though I cannot guarantee it.
Do you accommodate multiple families?
Each session time slot will accommodate 1 family only; groups of cousins, friends, etc will need to book separately (i.e. pay for a separate time slot).
Arrival and time
One family is booked every 20 minutes. It is imperative that everyone arrives on time & dressed ready to be photographed. Please arrive 10 minutes before your allocated session time!
I will stop shooting when I am confident that I have taken enough images to provide you with the digital images you have paid for. This might mean we shoot for 10 minutes, but no more than 15 minutes.
What if I cannot make my booked session time and date?
There is a Private Facebook group that I recommend you join, in case of wanting to swap a timeslot with someone else. https://www.facebook.com/groups/159047098235874
