Last year’s Santa mini sessions were a hit! Honestly, I had just as much fun photographing the sessions as the kids did. I saw the most PRECIOUS children make their way through my studio in the sweetest, most adorable winter outfits–from PJ’s to bowties, it was nothing but cuteness all around! But the most incredible thing they wore were their SMILES! Ushering these kids to Santa Claus was the most joyful part of my job because session after session produced some really special grins. Most smiles were worn by the children–but believe me when I say ALL smiles were worn by the parents! I was just as excited for the children to meet the big guy as THEY were! What a magical time it was! And that time will soon be back again, don’t you worry…
Sitting on Santa’s lap and sharing your Christmas wishlist with him was a big deal to you back in the day, and it’s just as much a big deal to your children today. Bring your children to us in Athens for a magical moment with Saint Nick and I will photograph delightful and enduring images to remember for years to come. These photos make for the best Christmas cards as well as brilliant, heartfelt gifts during this season of giving.
The shoot setup is going to be very modern and simple, incorporating neutral tones of whites and evergreens. I always prefer to keep the props and decor to a minimum, as I feel offering a minimalistic and uncluttered environment keeps focus on the most important element to the photos–your beautiful children! I am excited to have Santa Phil back with us again this year. To find out more about Santa Phil, visit his website.
Efficiency is my specialty when doing volume sessions like this. Like we did last year, we plan to implement taking these photographs digitally tethered to our computer. Instead of traditionally capturing images on a memory card these images will instantly be transported to our computer onsite and edited as they are imported. As soon as they are approved by our media technician, they are uploaded to a private online album for you. Tethered shooting allows us to deliver your mini session images same day, rather than waiting weeks for your images to be available for you to download. The images from your Santa mini session will be available to view by the end of the day and you will have the opportunity to review the collection of photos to order prints and/or upgrade your gallery.
Your child’s session includes a visit with Santa, along with a special takeaway for your kid(s) to take home with them. The booking fee is $125 and includes 3 downloadable digital images. You will have the option to upgrade your gallery to download the full collection of digital files for only $50.
*PARTIES OF MORE THAN 5 INDIVIDUALS REQUIRE MORE TIME AND THEREFORE REQUIRE A PURCHASE OF TWO SESSION FEES.
