This year C19 has affected virtually everyone's lives. We are observing safety measure to stay within guidelines and to keep everyone safe and healthy. Face coverings are required to enter the building. Children and Santa may remove their face coverings when sitting in their chairs in our photoset. Adults not being photographed need to keep face coverings on as will our photographer. We have separate chairs for Santa and up to 3 children. Between Santa visits we sanitize all surfaces before the next visitors are invited in. Each person entering will be temperature checked with a no-contact infrared thermometer. Additionally, prior to your session you will be asked to confirm no one in your party shows any symptoms related to Covid-19. We reserve the right to refuse entry to anyone who shows symptoms. Children appearing to be sick will not be allowed to visit Santa. We absolutely hate to have to implement these rules but it is imperative to keep everyone safe and especially for Santa Claus' health. Otherwise Santa will not be able to see anyone. Please be understanding.
How to Dress
It's fun to play dress-up! These Santa Experience photo sessions are designed to produce a classic, heirloom type fine art images. Outfits can be traditional, victorian or more current/contemporary. Solid colors, reds, greens, blues and earthtones are the best. Whites do work but also do stand out more than other solid colors. Avoid bright colors, stripes and busy prints. Coordinated holiday outfits work great as do matching PJ's. For multiple children please do try to keep all outfits coordinated in the same or similar tones and colors.
