Santa visited our Brisbane Christmas photos last year, and he was a hit with the kids and parents!

So this year, we’re voting… would you like to see Santa in your Christmas photos?

We also have the option of including a Digital Santa in your photos, which we started in 2020, and news quickly spread! We were interviewed by radio team 97.3fm, ABC Brisbane and the Daily Mail, and were invited to record a few Christmas podcasts with Christmas Podding!

OUR DIGITAL SANTA QUICKLY WENT VIRAL AROUND THE WORLD!

Join our private Facebook page for priority access and sneak peeks!

And cast your vote, would you love to see Santa in your Santa Photos this year?

We’ve photographed hundreds, maybe thousands of families for Christmas, and we love it!! It’s such a hit, seeing our beautiful families come back year after year, seeing our new Santa photos designs, and meeting Santa!

meet your photographer

Hi, I’m Claire, your Christmas photographer!

I’m the crazy excitement behind this shindig, and I just love everything Christmas! It’s my absolute fave time of the year, and I absolutely love building, creating, and styling our beautiful Christmas sets to share with my clients every year.

Christmas sessions started many years ago, with a few clients coming over for some very basic Christmas photos.

During Covid, I embarked on a “digital Santa”, and was found and promoted by ABC Brisbane, 97.3fm radio, The Daily Mail, and had a few interviews and podcasts.

Our Christmas sessions suddenly exploded to 70+ families, and we now have hundreds of families through our door every Christmas.

Christmas doesn’t stop after your session!
Come back for a drive-by in December, while we add a few thousands lights to our home every year. I have big plans for this year, but sshhhh, don’t tell my husband, haha! (He thinks we have enough already).

christmas & santa photos questions

STUDIO QUESTIONS

Q: Where is your studio?
A: Murrumba Downs, Brisbane Northside

INCLUSIONS

Q: How much are the photos? 
A: $225 for 10 Digital Images.

Q: What if I want extras?
A: No problems! You can purchase extras after you see your gallery. Individual $40 each. Whole gallery upgrade is $149.

SET AND DESIGN

Q: Will the sets change before the day?
A: The backdrops themselves have been designed and printed and the walls are as depicted in the example images. Furniture and styling will not be finalised until close to the day. You can see however some colours of furniture in our artistic mockup that we are aiming for in the final design. So, use these colours as a guide, and start assembling your outfits!

DATES

Q: What dates are the photos?
A: Saturday 16th, Sunday 17th, Saturday 23rd November 2024.

Q: I can’t make those dates.
A: We’ll have weekday sessions available too – contact me ASAP for a weekday session.

SANTA

Q: I’ve booked a Santa session but I want both sets.
A: Both sets are included! But Santa will be photographed on ONE set only – to save him walking around all day.

Q: Can I have Santa on both sets?
A: Sorry, no, there isn’t time. Choose one set only for Santa.

Q: What if my child doesn’t like Santa?
A: We roll with it! We won’t know how kids will react, and that’s half the fun, photographing what happens. I have plenty of screaming photos of my kids too! We don’t offer refunds, so please be flexible and understanding.

Q: What if we don’t want Santa in our Santa photos?
A: Santa won’t be leaving the couch… so please don’t ask him to step away. He’ll be a very busy man, and due to time restrictions he will remain in the studio for your photos.

SICKNESS

Q: What if we’re sick on the day?
A: That’s something we can’t help, however, if you’re sick on the day, we can’t rebook your session so you won’t be refunded. There may be the option of rescheduling to a weekday. If you’re sick, let us know asap, and stay home.

Q: What if the photographer is sick on the day?
A: That’s what happened last year! I completely lost my voice for a few weeks due to vocal strain, however, due to amazing photographer friends, we had another photographer in quickly, and I was still present, but pretty quiet on the day, haha! (We will provide another photographer if needed).

EDITING CHANGES

Q: What if I don’t like my photos?
A: I’ll be doing my very best to capture beautiful photos of your family/kids in the limited time we have. I’m a professional photographer with 15+ years experience, and I will only hand over quality photographs. I’m sorry if you don’t like your photos, but I will have done my best to photograph what I see on the day.

Q: I want more editing done/body changes/remove pimples etc.
A: Due to the thousands of photos taken over Christmas, we cannot individually hand-edit each photo. If you have specific requests, let us know. Extra editing is charged at $35 per image.

CAN I BRING PETS

Q: Can I bring my dog/lizard/bird?
A: Sure/no/no. Restrained dogs on leash are allowed but please note this is my residential home. Bring bags to collect their poops. Dogs are only allowed on leash, please do not stand near other families/dogs/children. Do not bring animals of any other kind. Especially scaly ones. Rabbits are ok! (Please bring me rabbits) haha.

Do not bring any other animals please.

OTHER

Q: What if I’m late?
A: If you’re late, delayed, etc, you will either miss your time slot, or it will be very tight! We have back-to-back bookings all day so we can’t fit in late arrivals. Please plan to arrive EARLY.

Q: What if my child/family knocks over something and breaks it?
A: Mistakes happen, but very expensive equipment is in our studio, costing into the thousands! Please keep your children calm and close to you. We are fully insured, but intentional harming of our equipment or sets will result in removing you from the set and possible legal action.

Anymore questions I haven’t answered? Pop me an email and I’ll be in touch. x
