$150 for your session with Santa

Online downloadable gallery with a minimum of 5 images posted within 14 days of your session

This is a REAL SANTA (same as 2020), a very sweet and patient man who has grandchildren of his own.  He loves kids, and reminded me the most of my Santa Johnny (2009-2019).   The look and feel will still be classic and simple, here is a link to last year’s session so you can see and get a feel for it!    The set up is perfect for clothing that is more formal/traditional all the way down to pjs and slippers!    It will be pretty similar to last year and it will always be more about the children and Santa than it will be about what is surrounding him!  We will also have a “socially distant” option, if you prefer for your child to not sit ON his lap!  At this moment, we do hope to be able to sit WITH/ON Santa when possible, but we are also keeping an eye on the Covid situation in our county.  We want to do what is best for our kids and for Santa! 

Mrs. Claus (his actual wife) will also plan to join us for a special story time.  This doesn’t cost extra, but we do need to know if you are interested!  Be sure to select the the Mrs. Claus option below.  It will be in the “old” Santa room and will run in 15 minute segments for those who are interested.  The story time will be AFTER we visit with Santa!  There will be a max of about 6-8 kids (or less) at a time.  Again, this option may change depending on the Covid situation!  Mrs. Claus is very important in the North Pole, so we need to do what is best for her too!  Full disclosure, they did a vaccine workshop at the North Pole!  Santa and Mrs. Claus have been vaccinated and the helpers that work directly with the kids are also vaccinated… 

*please be mindful of your child’s nap schedule when emailing your requests.

$50 non-refundable/non-transferable deposit will be due within 2 weeks once your session is confirmed.  You will receive an online link with your confirmation.

I accept check, cash, and credit/debit (via Paypal or Venmo)

In the event of timing issues due to children who are scared, there will be refreshments (pre-bagged and boxed) and crafts for children while waiting.

Our goal is to be patient and creative when it comes to children who are nervous!

Use the form below to let me know your ideal time for your session, I will do my best to get you on or close to that time!  If you are flexible it is easier for me if you can give me a “window”.  Use the drop down box in the form for options! That will help me get you a spot without having to text/call and risk loosing the space!

Sessions are for immediate family only. If you want to do some with cousins or friends involved, you must book Santa TWO session back to back!

Simple session (yours will be black&white AND color)

2021 Fall MINI sessions!
*Santa will release in a few weeks (august 22)

What’s a mini?  Mini sessions are a shortened version of my regular FULL session.  I typically offer them during the Spring/Easter and Fall/Christmas seasons.  There is NO time for clothing changes.

How much?  Minis are $220 and only available on the dates/locations listed! Cash, check, credit (via paypal and venmo) accepted.

What do you get?  You will get a 20-25 minute session with me at the location of your choice.  Your images will be edited and given to you in full resolution files on a online gallery for download within 3 weeks of your session. Typically there are a minimum of 20 images for mini sessions.

How many people?  You can have up to 4 members of the same immediate family.  If you would like to add more siblings, cousins, or grandparents, you are encouraged to book a FULL session or two minis back-to-back.  Minis are NOT  recommended for infants under six months.  If you have a larger family, PLEASE still communicate with me, there are ways around it!

Please fill out the online form below with your top 3 choices.  These spots will go VERY fast.  I will email you back with a confirmation or other options within 24 hours.  If you don’t hear from me after 24 hours, please check your SPAM or email me again!  If your preferred spot/time is full and another date/location does not work for you, PLEASE be sure you ask to be put on a waiting list.  I often have sessions open up AND i may consider doing weekday minis locally if the calendar fills too quickly!

There is a $50 non-refundable/non-transferable deposit due 1 week after your confirmation!  The links give as location examples, may only work if you are on a computer not a phone!

2021 Back-2-School minis

back2school minis

What is a “back 2 school” mini?  This is just a super quick mini option open first for my “current clients” who have young children going back to school this month!  It is for kids of any age technically, but the “props” are geared more towards preK-upper elementary!  If your kids are older we can still have a “back to school” feel… just without the “little” props.  Speaking of props, due to Covid, again this year these will be trimmed down tremendously for a few reasons.  They will need to be cleaned in between sessions, AND my usual set up makes that back hallway crowded!  We will also have the option again for ZERO props, but these families would be scheduled at the end of the day!  I do have a few new things up my sleeve for this year though!

Sunday, August 22, 2021 between 2 and 6 PM!

We will be on the back hallway of the Bailey Tebault House in Griffin (rain or shine)!

Cost is $80 for one child, and $40 for each additional sibling (must be from the same family… cousins/buddies book separate sessions please)  This is a 15 minute session with 10 additional minutes for each extra sibling.

Please use the form below to let me know your top 3 choices.  If you don’t have a preference, just let me know that ANY time is fine!  Please also be sure to let me know if you want NO PROPS… like i said, these would be pushed to the end of the day.

Within 21 days, you will receive a minimum of 10 edited high resolution images on an online gallery to download!!

What you can expect… cute pics of your kiddos.  I am not a photographer that relies on props to fill the space in the picture.  Your kiddo is the primary focus, so dress them ready for the “first day of school” and bring them to have a little fun! If you have your own props or favorite book (big or little), back pack, felt letter-board bring those and we will try and work them in!!!

I would say the colors fit with both bright and muted primary colors!  Click here for an example from last year!

times available: Back to School w/ Props 1:00,1:20,1:40, 2:00, 2:20, 2:40, 3:00, 3:20, 3:40, 4:00, 4:20, 4:40, 5:00 Back to School no Props (same as my Simple Sessions) 5:20, 5:40, 6:00, 6:20, 6:40, 7:00

Please use the form below to request your top three time slots!  If you are flexible that day, it is great to know that too!  You can say “any time WITH props” or “any time withOUT props” if you are extra flexible!
