Frequently Asked Questions

**Q: What is the Santa Experience?

One on one session private with Santa in a totally live interactive experience. This isn’t a traditional photography session that has standard poses, but a live photojournalist documentation of the family’s interaction with Santa. We have different interactive triggers that Santa will naturally go through depending on the age and cooperation of the participants. Santa will read, sing, place candy canes and other decorations on the tree, and a whole lot more. While this is all happening we will be capturing every moment. At the end we can do the old school staged sit in Santa’s lap photo, but this is not the focus on what the Santa Experience is all about. Its more than just a photo shoot, it’s a true experience that the family will talk about for years to come.

Q: Can We Change Outfits During the Session: The session time slot is very strict, so any changing of clothing will take away from shooting time. The time slot cannot be extended based on this lost time. We recommend coming already in outfits, PJ’s etc. prior to arrival and check in.

Q: Can I Bring My Own Props: We know Pinterest ideas are all the rage, but we cannot guarantee the usage of any external props. Thousands of dollars have been invested for a beautiful interactive set with many triggers that we already have tested. Let the magic of the Santa Experience take fight on it’s own and you will be amazed.

Q: What Happens if My Child Doesn’t Cooperate: There is no guarantee that every child is ready to see and interact with joy with Santa. We will capture what is present. If there is a resistance we cannot force happiness and joy on a child. We can however do a “Drop and Run” and have fun images You can show off to their first date when they are teenagers.

Q: Can I Bring Our Pet/Animal(s): Due to allergies of other families we don’t do sessions that include pets.

Q: Is this Just For Children or Can Other Family Members Participate in the Session: This is not exclusive to just children. The entire family can participate as well. Keep in mind the more people in the set the more crowded the photos and less attention on the little ones.

Q: How Old is Too Young? We have had them as young as 1 month old, however this is not a posed newborn session.

Q: How old is too old? If you are young at heart, you are always welcomed to participate.
