We’re thrilled over at HGP that Santa will be in the studio November 17th this year starting at 9 am. Santa is working hard on making this an even better experience for the kids this year!
EDIT: Santa is coming back to town December 15th!
Santa wasn't available to be here for the pictures for the blog post, so Ella filled in- begrudgingly. We're going for a simple backdrop this year. We had a lot of elements last year that the kids found, let's say distracting, haha! Plus, she's two, so I'm going out on a limb and say she won't appreciate Santa this year. The setup is simple, clean, and elegant. Dress your kids in pops of color, or bring them in Christmas pajamas, either will work!
While these are Santa Sessions for your babes, parents- you are welcome to get in the picture too if you’re hoping to get the family picture for the Christmas card. Images are GUARANTEED to be delivered by December 17th so you can get cards ordered and sent out. We highly recommend having them designed ahead of time so you can plug in your images and get them ordered immediately.
The Santa Experience will give your kids the opportunity to just hang out with Santa. While Santa Sessions are technically mini sessions, I listened to a lot of mom’s and wanted to offer not just a mini. If you’d like your kiddos to sit and read a book, drink hot chocolate, eat Christmas cookies, go over Christmas lists, we want your kids to have this experience- SOLD OUT!
The best part? You’re skipping the mall line. No wrangling toddlers, battling crowds, or massive meltdowns while waiting. And if they HATE Santa, he'll simply step out so we can still get a Christmas card worthy picture.
So back to Santa Sessions. There's
three two options this year.
Three TWO options for December 15th sessions:
Limited Edition Santa
- 15 minute session (Santa wants a break in between kiddos this year to review their elf's name and know each kiddo's name as well- he's bringing the "magic"!)
- your choice of 5 digital images, additional images available for purchase
- family picture is welcome
The Santa Experience- SOLD OUT - The kiddos get to share their wish lists, their elf on the shelf, enjoy a Christmas cookie and make a creation at the hot chocolate bar to enjoy with Santa. One of the favorites from last year was reading books with Santa, and giving him letters to take to the North Pole. - Parents are welcome to bring a present ahead of time (HGP will wrap for you if you'd like) and Santa will give the give the gifts to kiddos - 25 minute session with your choice of 8 digital images, additional images available for purchase - family pictures is welcome
- Only four spots available $179.
- Not every child has warmed up to Santa. Some have the tradition of going to a specific one and you only need a 5x7 printed. The Holiday mini doesn't include Santa, but simply allows for you and your family to get a quick image for the Christmas card. Sessions are $99.
- 15 minute session, your choice of five digital images
- family picture is welcome
