with simply corey photography


Mini sessions are per immediate family. Please fill out this form ahead of time so your child's name is on Santa's list!


We will be doing individual photos of each child, plus sibling photos with Santa.


While we like to keep the focus on the kids, parents are welcome to jump in for a quick family photo with Santa.


Sunday, October 30th

Mini sessions are 15 minutes long and held back to back. Please plan on arriving a little earlier than your appointment time and give yourself extra time for traffic. I cannot guarantee your allotted time if you are late.


A magical holiday experience! This is not just a quick portrait with Santa, and I will have several interactive props available to create some fun holiday memories!


This is a low-pressure experience. If your child is uncomfortable or scared of Santa, we will do everything in our power to help them! Santa has been known to stand behind children as they sit on the seat by themselves or lie down on the floor with them to color. If you think your child will have a hard time, you may also want to be prepared to be in a photo or two.


You don't have to bring anything extra, but you are welcome to bring your own favorite holiday book, stuffed animal, holiday mugs, etc. to include in your session.


I've also had families bring their personal Elf on the Shelf or a small gift from Santa for the kids to unwrap during their photos. Please let me know ahead of time if you'll be doing something like this so we can sneak whatever we need to in before the kids.


Make sure hair is brushed, faces and noses are wiped, and nails are clean. The camera picks up more than you think!


Minor blemishes on ordered images will be retouched at no extra charge. Extensive editing will require an additional fee.

→ CLOTHING // what to wear

Clothing changes are not permitted for mini sessions due to time.


You're welcome to wear formal Christmas attire, casual outfits, or Christmas pajamas!


I recommend colors that complement the set: navy, dark green, gold, cream/off-white, red, or burgundy.


Avoid stark white, tiny stripes or checks, large logos, and character clothing.


Please make sure your clothing is as clean and wrinkle-free as possible since wrinkles will show up in your photos and will not be edited out.


This year's set can be seen below. If you'd like to see examples of Santa, check out previous sessions on the blog.

→ rescheduling

Santa mini sessions are not able to be rescheduled and retainers are non-refundable, but you're welcome to apply it to a future session if you're not able to make your Santa appointment.

Your session’s images will be archived once your order is completed. Though you are welcome to purchase additional photos later, digital media tends to be unpredictable and your images are not guaranteed after 90 days.
