Where will the mini sessions take place? They will take place in a private location located in North O'Fallon.
How do I reserve my spot? You reserve your spot online through my special form. All reservations require a non-refundable $100 deposit.
How is your session with Santa unique? Our sessions are exclusively private to you, and personalized to make a magical experience for your family and child. From their name, to special things about them, we will create a special magical experience. Their name will even appear on Santa's list!
Can we, the parents, get our photo with Santa too? Absolutely!
Is it possible to get just a family photo without Santa? Yes! Although, he is the main theme of your session. It is still your session. I encourage all families, and parents, to dress for the occasion. At the end, we will make sure to get your Christmas family portrait, and Santa will help make the little ones smile and beam for that picture perfect moment.
Will my photos have "magic" in them, like yours? Yes! Not all of them, but selected images will have an added spark of Christmas magic to them.
When should I arrive? To keep the magic special to each family, arrive no more than 5 minutes to your scheduled time; you will text me when you arrive. Your session time begins from the moment you walk through the door. There is a scheduled allotted time between each session to keep each experience unique.
What should we wear? Dress up for the occasion however you like. Santa will be wearing his red long sleeve shirt, and gold vest with his red suit pants and boots. We suggest avoiding red if possible. White and ivory look the best against his red shirt and green chair. But, feel free to make this session what you like. From pajamas to a dress, it is yours. Stick to the rule of 3 for colors. Choose no more than 3 colors/tones, and then mix and match your outfits with clothes and accessories.
Can my kids play with the toys in the room? Yes! It is made for Santa fun!
Can I bring all the grandparents to come watch? Space is limited in the room, so I do ask only 2-3 adults accompany the children at a time. It's your choice who those adults are.
Can I video and take pictures on my cell phone? Sure.
What will the letter from Santa look like? Well, it's going to be from the North Pole, and it's from Santa... so authentic and magical! We can say that Santa and his elves go all out with these special letters to your children.
