2020 Santa Sessions

Santa sessions @ the Bailey Tebault House in Griffin, GA

***UPDATE**** as of 10am Tuesday ALL 100 spots have been claimed!  I am a little shocked and encouraged at the same time.  I was thinking because of the new Santa, new set-up, Covid, and no Mrs. Claus that i would have less interest!  I was very wrong.  PLEASE don’t be discouraged if you did not get a spot… I will start the waiting list.  I will look into extending the day and/or opening up Monday the 23rd.  Because a few of the school systems are on Thanksgiving break, that might be a good solution!  Please hang tight, fill out the form below to let me know you ARE interested, but didn’t get a spot AND stay tuned.  You all amaze me… every year, and this year in particular!  

Sat/ Sun, November 21/22

$115 for your session with Santa

Online downloadable gallery with a minimum of 5 images posted within 10 days of your session

This is a REAL (and new) SANTA, a very sweet and patient man who has grandchildren of his own.  He loves kids, and reminded me the most of my Santa Johnny.  Many of you know that my Santa Johnny, whom I worked with for 10 years retired.  Mrs. Claus also retired with him.  I sent MANY surveys out at the beginning of 2020 to get your input on date/look/feel/venue moving forward.  I took these to heart and still want THIS Santa experience to be just as meaningful and special.  Covid-19 threw another kink into the plans because now we need to be careful on Santa’s behalf, my team, AND your kids.  We will have some procedures and protocols in place to help with that.  We also plan to have Santa outside under the covered back porch for now!  The look and feel will still be classic and simple, but you will not see the same props that I have used in the past.  A new Santa and Covid have forced me to change things up a bit.  The set up will still be perfect for clothing that is more formal/traditional all the way down to pjs and slippers!  Think about how that back porch is simple with the white walls and brick floor.  We be bringing in fresh greenery, Fraser firs, and very pretty wooden bench.  It will be perfect and it will 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!  We will not have Cupcakes with Mrs. Claus this year because she retired but also Covid would have also put that on the backburner this year!  We will still have ways that this will be memorable and special!

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

$50 non-refundable/non-transferable deposit will be due within 2 wks once your session is confirmed

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!

2020 Back 2 School minis

back2school minis

As ALL of you know, this year looks SO different!!  While most of us are going to be doing “at home” schooling, there are a few of you out there that get to be in person!  Either way, it is still a good time to document these strange times!  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, 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 options for ZERO props, but these families would be scheduled at the end of the day!

Sunday, August 23, 2020 between 2 and 6 PM!

We will be on the back hallway of the Bailey Tebault House in Griffin (same spot as Santa’s cupcakes with Mrs. Claus)

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.  Five minutes will be built in for sanitizing.  I feel like I need to explain the price increase.  Having to add in time for sanitizing cuts down on the amount of people i can fit in ONE hour time frame.  I hope that makes sense, but i still need to cover myself, my helper, and the venue fee.

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 time.

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 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 2:00, 2:20, 2:40, 3:00, 3:20, 3:40, 4:00, 4:20, 4:40, 5:00, 5:20,

Back to School no Props (same as my Simple Sessions) 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!

2020 Simple Sessions with Cindy

2020 simple sessions (postponed until further notice)

What’s a simple session?  These are NEW this year!  These sessions will take place at the Bailey Tebault House in Griffin and are just as it says, simple.  No props will be used, just your child and his/her personality!  If you are familiar with my back2school sessions, this will have a similar feel, but NO props!  I am so excited about these sessions and I hope you will come out and try something new!

  • How much?  Simple sessions are only $100 and available only on two dates for now and both will be at the Bailey Tebault! Cash, check, credit (via paypal and venmo) accepted.
  • What do you get?  You will get 15 minute session with me.  Your images will be edited and given to you in full resolution files on an on line gallery within 3 weeks
