"A Moment with Santa"
WHAT is a 'Santa Session'? Your holiday tradition just got more personal. Since becoming a mother three years ago, the magic of Christmas has been re-awakened in me, seeing how special the season is to my son who is experiencing everything for the first time! Snow, candy canes, SANTA! All of these things that have become mundane yearly tradition to some adults are so special to children, and I want to document those magical moments of your children when they get to meet one-on-one with the big man in red himself. These sessions will be a stress-free professional quality photo session with a more personal touch.
What can I expect from the Moment with Santa Session? I plan for these sessions to be a full experience rather than a simple photo session. Your booking includes more than just a moment with Santa.
Here is what you can expect:
Upon entering the studio, your family will be greeted by Santa's helpers who will offer hot chocolate and entertainment with hand puppets and games to get them loosened up. When it's time for your moment with Santa, a friendly helper will usher your family over to Santa's area and introduce the jolly man himself. Your child may sit with Santa, or simply stand next to him and chat for the next 15 minutes. Prior to your session, I will send out a questionnaire for you to complete including your child's name, age, favorite activities, Christmas list items, etc. I will have these answers on hand so when it's your child's turn to meet Santa, it will be as if he's known them all along. Santa will converse with your child, share a special story or poem with him/her, and offer a special holiday themed toy or treat that they can take home with them to remember this special moment. Family members can join in as well. If you have a young baby, you're welcome to sit with Santa with your baby on your lap if you wish.
Where is the session? I will be using a beautiful natural-light studio in Chelsea, NYC. The address will be sent to you after you book your spot.
How long is the session? Your time with Santa will be up to 15 minutes. However, you are encouraged to enjoy refreshments and games with Santa's helpers prior to your session time as well as a few minutes after your session.
Will I receive digital images? Yes! Your session comes with FIVE fully edited digital images. Within a week of your Santa Session you'll receive an online gallery with 15-30 images from your session. From there, you can choose up to 5 images to keep, or purchase extra images if you love them all! Prints and gifts are also available for purchase. This year I'll be offering a few exclusive products to my Santa Session clients! I'll also be able to design holiday cards for you from your photos so you have one less item on your plate this season!
The cost: 'A Moment with Santa' Session and experience is only $300. A $200 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your time slot. This deposit can be made online by credit card or Venmo. Due to the nature of these sessions I will not be able to reschedule if you are unable to make your time spot. In this instance, your deposit may be used towards another session of your choice. The remaining balance is due the day of the session.
