Will my portrait session still take place in inclement weather?


Our sessions take place outdoors, adjacent to/inside Santa’s camp site. We have taken precautions for rain, but wind and lightning are a problem. We will contact you to discuss options if there is a weather warning that is impactful to our location.

What should I expect for my Santa portrait session?


We offer a 15 minute, private, interactive portrait session to capture the magic of meeting Santa Claus. Holiday decorations and scenery will be the backdrop for your gorgeous portraits but the main focus is Santa.




What should I do when I arrive?


Santa’s outdoor camp site is located behind the barn at the Shops of Farmington Valley, 110 Albany Turnpike, Canton CT. Use the parking lot beside the barn and wait at the entrance by Santa’s Garden Shed. Santa has many friends coming to visit his CT Campsite and staying on schedule is VERY important. Please arrive, and be camera ready, 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time of your portrait session. Once Santa is ready for you and you are escorted in, there will be no time to adjust your hair or outfit.




Our family doesn’t feel well, should we still attend our session?


Let’s talk! We will do our best to reschedule your portraits as Santa’s schedule permits.




What if my child is shy or doesn’t cooperate while meeting Santa?


All children are different and there are no guarantees how your child will react. Our skilled team has experience getting the best possible photographs under these circumstances. For example, Santa may step out for “a cookie snack” in the hopes of capturing more relaxed photos. Candid photos can also be adorable memories and may be captured.




Will I get a refund if my child has a negative reaction and doesn’t stay with Santa?


No, we do not offer refunds. If you suspect this may be a problem, we recommend booking a Holiday Photo Session. The focus for those is your family and not Santa.
