How It Works:

Schedule your child's personal visit with Santa at our studio in Forest, VA. Experience the wonder of Christmas through your child's eyes as I capture their first glimpse of Santa and keep snapping away as they hop on his lap and enjoy sharing their Christmas wishes with him. 

After your session, you will receive an online gallery of 10-15 images to download as high-resolution digital downloads.

Below you will find all the details and time slot options for these unique sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you give full rights to all of the 10-15 images?

You will receive a link to download all of your images as well as a Limited Print Release to use when you print your pictures. A Limited Print Release allows you to download all of the pictures and print them at your preferred print location. However, Liz Cook Photography will retain the full Copyrights which means you are not permitted to alter the images, sell them, or submit them to any publications or contests without prior written approval from Liz Cook Photography. 

Where do you suggest we print our pictures?

I highly recommend one of the following printers: 



Do I have to book a different time slot for each of my children?

No. Not at all! However, if you have more than three children coming, I highly recommend you book two back-to-back time slots to ensure plenty of time for each child to spend with Santa. 

What Should My Children Wear For These Pictures?

I will send out a Client Preparation Guide a few weeks before your session with clothing advice. I recommend choosing either their Holiday Best (a beautiful dress or christmas colored sweater), or a pair of neutral colored pajamas! All clients are also welcome to schedule a 15 minute wardrobe fitting appointment at the studio to look through the studio wardrobe and finalize clothing selections should you want additional assistance.
