Get into the holiday spirit and let your child experience the magic of Santa without the wait and hustle of the mall.  Children will get to meet Santa, ask him questions and share their Christmas wishes with him.  Mrs. Claus will be there as well to hand out some special treats.

Santa Sessions include digital images with the option to add on additional print products.  All clients will receive a Style Inspiration Board to help choose outfits that will compliment Santa’s red suit.

Santa Sessions are for children & siblings only.  If you have 5 or more children, you must book 2 spots.  Babies & children only- no parents.

CONDITIONS/CANCELLATIONS:  Absolutely no refunds will be given, but you may transfer your session to another party or use your credit on file for a future session.  

 IMAGES:  The images included in your package are selected at the sole discretion of the photographer.   I choose the best images for a collection and edit all keepers, simply discarding blinks, duplicates, etc.  I am not responsible for a child’s reaction to Santa nor will I force a child to sit on Santa’s lap.  I cannot guarantee that your child will have a happy response to Santa and there will be no redo’s.    

IMAGE DELIVERY:  A digital download will be provided within 2 weeks of your Santa Session via an online gallery and include a personal print release.  Any gift prints ordered will be sent to you via mail.  

SESSION INFORMATION:  Each session will last approximately 5-1o minutes, give or take.  The reason for this is not to rush you, but to get the best out of each child.  Some children are fine in just a minute with Santa and some take a few minutes longer.  I take however long we need to create a collection of images up to my standards.  This may mean 5 minutes or it may mean 10 minutes.  Please note that once a baby or child begins crying or melting down, they often are not able to recover.  I do my best to photograph quickly, again not to rush you, but to get the best shots possible.  Up to 4 children are included (must be siblings).  Please schedule 2 slots for 5 or more children.  Cousins may schedule two slots together and combine sessions for individual photos and cousins together.

COPYRIGHT:  Petite Magnolia Photography retains all copyright and provides a personal print release with all downloads.  Petite Magnolia Photography may use images for Santa Sessions for promotional use, both online or in print. 

RECOMMENDED CLOTHING:  Winter/holiday pajamas or simple clothing with NEUTRAL tones such as creams, grays, whites, browns, and gold/silver.  Please no letters or characters, bright/large patterns, or fancy large dresses that will distract from your child & Santa.  SIMPLE & NEUTRAL IS ALWAYS BETTER!  Santa will be in red so it’s best to stay away from red clothing choices for your child.  

BE PREPARED:  Please note that each Santa Session is scheduled so that you will have minimal wait time with the exception of a few minutes.  It’s best to arrive 5 minutes early so you are not rushing.  Please plan to spend anywhere from 15-30 minutes at the event.

By finalizing your session/payment you agree to the above terms & conditions.
