Our Santa Mini Sessions 2019 event will be one of our last special events of the year! Santa mini sessions are for children ages 2 months through 10 years old (if you have an older child and want to participate, contact me). Each session time includes one child. Each additional child is $10. Please note that the children MUST be in your immediate family and not extended family (no cousins or friends for this event–siblings only).
Santa Mini Sessions are taking place in our downtown Palatine studio on the Saturday, November 30th in the morning. This will be the ONLY day that Santa will be visiting the studio. Santa will have a special gift for all of the children attending. The backdrop is a beautiful representation of Santa’s Living Room. It is colorful and detailed. Any solid color outfit will look best. A pattern will clash. I believe that fancier outfits will look the best. For girls, a nice holiday dress. For boys a sweater or button down collared shirt and nice pants or dressier jeans. The children will be either sitting on Santa’s lap, next to Santa on the small studio couch OR may be standing next to the couch by Santa.
If your child is very shy or afraid of characters/new people, this might not be the best session for them. I will do my best but usually between the ages of 6 months and 2 years, many children are fearful of Santa. I am happy to get the funny crying shots but I can’t guarantee those smiles if they are fearful. We can always take a funny crying one with Santa and then have Santa step out and do a few of child by themself on couch in front of beautiful backdrop. Contact me if you have any questions. No money will be refunded for this event if we cannot get the 5 images due to the child not cooperating.
Our Santa Mini Sessions are $150 and include a 10 minute session with Santa with our Santa’s Living Room backdrop with an online gallery of 5-10 proofs to choose from. 5 digital files ARE INCLUDED in this price. This price is for ONE CHILD. All additional children are $10 each. Additional digital files will be $25 each. There will be special holiday packages available for this event as well. Please contact me for a full pricing list for this special event.
You do not have to choose your package until after you receive your proofs but please note the minimum amount you will spend for this event is $150 for one child ($10 for each additional child). In order to book your session, you must sign a portrait agreement and provide a $150 nonrefundable payment. Your space is not officially booked until these 2 items have been received by Just Peachy Photography (you will have 48 hours to return payment and portrait agreement due to VERY limited availability). Proofs will be sent to all participants within 3-5 days of the event so that you can receive your images in a timely manner.
