Santa Sessions 2019

Almost a year ago, I was waiting in line with my toddler. My very impatient, very antsy, rambunctious, can’t sit still for a second, toddler. Each minute that passed felt like an hour with her as we waited in a line that was a mile long just so she could sit on Santa’s lap for a few quick photos with some cheesy Christmas setup. Why was I doing that to her? Why was I doing that to my sanity?? The photo was pretty cute but we waited close to an hour and by the time we got to see The Big Guy, her hair was a disaster, she was over it and she wasn’t even excited anymore. I looked around me to see tons of other parents sharing in my grief and I knew I could offer a much calmer experience for kids to see and visit Santa. 

I am so very excited to be hosting these micro mini sessions! The sessions will be held at my Spencerport, NY studio on November 10th, 2019. Each session will get a 5-minute time slot with Santa and at least 3 full-resolution digital images with a print release. The mood will be set with Christmas music in the air, a hot cocoa station and kids can even decorate a Christmas ornament! (Those might be best for AFTER photos in case they get messy 😉 )

The session fee is $155 and includes a 5-minute visit with Santa and at *least* 3 images. If you are booking for 4 or more children, you will need to book TWO sessions to make sure that we have enough time for everyone. This fee is due upon booking. 

The Santa

Not knowing where to start, I asked a group of local moms who the best Santa for hire was. One stuck out to me, so I messaged him and we met up for coffee to go over the details. His name is Max Robertson and he is probably the most kind-hearted, most gentle soul I have ever met! We chatted a little bit about the sessions, how long he’s been Santa, etc. But we really spent the hour just talking about life. He was so gracious and kind. I cannot wait for you all to meet him! 


First, select your time slot, enter your information and then pay your session fee. Once your session fee is paid, you will be sent the client agreement. Please be sure to read it over and sign it. This is needed to secure your time slot. 

PLEASE NOTE: your session is NOT booked until the session fee is paid. 

Additional Thoughts

You know your child best. If you think they would be too shy for this or won’t even enter the camera room, please consider a non-Santa session. Feel free to reach out with any questions you may have! I hope to see you at this fun event!
