WHAT TO WEAR :


One outfit per child.
Please book two back-to-back slots for up to 3 looks per child.
We suggest party dresses or classic pajamas.  Avoid busy patterns and logos.

Please be sure children have clean, trimmed nails,
no "blue popsicle" food stains, no temporary tattoos, etc.  

Please consider a little shine-reducing foundation powder
for boys and girls and light mascara for girls.
Children do NOT need any other makeup.

Please style hair in advance of arrival.


WHAT TO BRING :

We'll have lots of custom props, but please bring anything
fun to include in your custom shoot (teddy bear, special blanket, book, etc.).

Bring a brush and any quick styling aids to touch up
(for sanitary reasons, we do not provide them) .

Bring a letter for Santa to read and "mail off" during the shoot.



WHAT NOT TO BRING :


Please DO NOT bring extra people (nannies, friends, grandparents,etc).

We will limit the number of people to only those being photographed.
Grandparents are more than welcome if being photographed with the child.

Please remember there is NO PHOTOGRAPHY during ANY PART of our work together,
including sets, children in their custom wardrobe before we begin, and "outtakes." 

We will thank and remind you for putting all
phones and cameras away immediately upon arrival.

We reserve the right to cease shooting and terminate the session
without refund if cameras are present at any time.

Please DO NOT bring any food into the studio.
We will provide light snacks, coffee, and hot cocoa AFTER your shoot.


ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE :

Sessions are 30 minutes scheduled every 45 minutes.
It is important to arrive and depart on time so that
we may prepare for the next client and keep the day on track.

Late arrivals will end at the appointed time,
regarless of how much time we have together.

Late arrivals will not be given additional time, rescheduled, or refunded.



VIEWING & SELECTING PORTRAITS :

At the end of your portrait session,
we'll schedule a return visit to view and select your portraits
(remember bring your calendar).

We will offer ONE opportunity to view and select,
so bring everyone wishing to parttake in the fun.

This is an adult-only appointment.
Children bore easily and distract from our focus and we don't want to discuss
"the magic of Santa" in their presence.

All orders are placed and paid in full at this time.
We accept all major credit cards (no cash or checks).


CANCELING & RESCHEDULING :

The $200 booking fee is NOT a deposit, but a
NON-REFUNDALBE initial payment toward your experience.

Cancelation for any reason forefeits the entire initial payment.

(The only exception will be in the event that the State of Michigan
determines that our business is specifically legally barred from operating.)

Clients may reschedule for a $100 additional fee if session slots are available.



EXTEDED FAMILY & FRIENDS :

More than 3 children, extended families, or friends who
wish to photograph together should book back-to-back sessions
to ensure overalp and portraits taken together.
Grandparents are welcome (please note a legal guardian must always be present.)

We'll happily take one group / family portrait at the end
(come dressed and ready to be part of the fun)!

The experience is for children sitting independently.
Younger children may be photographed held in arms.
The experience is not suitable for newborns.

(No furry family, please.)

We welcome special needs children.
Please note that our home studio is not ADA compliant.
To enter, we have two steps up the porch and one additional step through the front door.
We have wide interior door spaces and room openings.
We are here to help in any way!



DELIVERY :

All orders paid in full and approved for final production by November 30
will be ready for pick up in time for the holidays.
Shipping is available for an additional fee.



COVID CONSIDERATIONS :


COVID-19 won't dim our holiday glow!   We will not have a live Santa as part of this year's experience, however Santa's magic will be present throughout.  Santa sightings (with a little help from Photoshop) may take place in finished portraits if your little ones cooperate with staged shots.
