What To Expect:
You'll visit our Northern Virginia Studio in Warrenton, VA for your children to experience the magic of Christmas with our Santa. You'll have your reserved private one-on-one time with Santa himself. We'll capture the magic in your child's eyes as Santa enters the room, and continue documenting their experience as they tell Santa what they want for Christmas, and even open a hand-delivered gift (provided by you)!

After your session, you'll receive a digital gallery of 10+ high resolution, professionally edited images.

A NEW ADD-ON OPTION:

AN ELF PASS, WHAT'S THAT?!

Our Santa sessions sold out quick last year and we had requests for more spots for weeks until Christmas came and passed. We expect this year to be no different... and next year to be even crazier!

With that being said, we're now offering an Elf Pass add-on!

What's an Elf Pass?! It includes:

- Priority registration for our 2023 Santa Experience (next year)
- A luxury framed 5x7 print of your favorite Santa photo
- Priority editing and delivery of your 2022 Santa photos! You get put right to the front of the line!

The Elf Pass is limited and once they're sold out, they're gone! They're only available at registration and cannot be added on once your session has come and passed.

What's next?

Registration: Click the link in the email to choose your spot!
Booking: Please choose your package selection, fill out your contract/retainer, and questionnaire.
Planning: You will receive a planning guide from me prior to your session with guidance on what to wear and other tips & tricks to ensure your session goes smoothly!
Session Time: Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your session start time. Only one family is allowed in the shooting area at a time. My assistant will wave you into the studio when we are ready for you. Please make sure babies are fed and fully dressed before entering the studio. Because these sessions are back-to-back, the studio changing area and wardrobe is not available for mini sessions. 
Gallery Delivery: You will receive your full gallery within 2 weeks (1 week for the December dates) so you have plenty of time for Christmas cards!

COVID POLICIES:

Fevers/Illness: I will be monitoring my temperature prior to the sessions and ask that all clients please do not attend if they (or household members) are experiencing fevers or any illnesses. If you are sick, please do not attend. Your retainer will be credited to be used in the future towards another full session or mini session event within 6 months of the original session date.
Health Measures: Disposable masks, hand sanitizer, and gloves are available in the studio. 
Santa: Santa will be changing his gloves in between clients! Santa is also vaccinated! :)
Sanitizing: I will be washing my hands in between sessions as well as sanitizing the studio shooting area.
One Family Limit: Only one family is allowed in the studio at a time. Parents will be asked to stay in the waiting area to reduce the amount of people congregating, but also to allow for more genuine reactions to Santa.
Shoes: No shoes are allowed in the studio.

WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO LOCATED?

Our luxury full-service studio is located in Warrenton, Virginia 5 minutes from town. While most clients live within 1-1.5 hours of the studio, we have had clients travel 3 hours one way just for a studio session! We are conveniently located in the middle of downtown Warrenton with lots to do nearby!

ARE THE DIGITAL FILES INCLUDED?

For Santa mini sessions only, the full gallery of digital files is included. This includes at least 10 digital files with downloading rights and a limited print release.

HOW LONG IS THE SESSION?

Your time slot lasts 10 minutes. We may need the entire 10 minutes or we may get all that we need in the first 2-3 minutes. Every child is different, but we never need more than 10 minutes! :)

SHOULD WE ARRIVE DRESSED?

Yes! Your children must be fed, changed, and fully dressed upon entrance to the studio. Because these mini sessions are back to back, the studio changing area is not available. Please make sure to feed, change, and dress your children in the car or at home prior to your session.

WHAT ABOUT BAD WEATHER?

These sessions will be in the studio, so the show will go on rain or shine!

WHO ARE THESE SESSIONS FOR?

These sessions are for babies/children and siblings only. No parents are allowed in the photos unless your child is an infant and cannot sit up on their own - one parent will be allowed in the photo to hold the child, so please dress appropriately. If you have more than 4 children, you must book 2 consecutive spots. Cousins may schedule two consecutive slots and combine sessions for group photos, as well as individual photos.

"I'm worried about my child's reaction"

Some kiddos are afraid of Santa and end up crying. This still ends up for cute photo ops, but we cannot guarantee that your children will smile with Santa. Honestly, some of my favorite Santa photos of Brayden (my son) are the crying ones from when he was little. We will definitely do everything in our power to get non-crying photos, but there will be no refunds or reshoots for children who cry the entire session.

WHAT EDITING IS INCLUDED?

Basic color correction is included. Additional edits beyond the photographer's control will be subject to an additional fee if this is something you're interested/require. Small blemishes are typically easily removed, but if an extensive edit is needed, these edits take a massive amount of time and will require an additional fee.

DO YOU ALLOW PETS?

The studio is not pet-friendly.
