Santa Appointments are FULL for 2020

New Santa Experience for Santa 2020

This year at Mary Gillespie Photography we are going to be offering a Santa's Workshop Theme. This will be a fun way for kids to interact with Santa and stay within COVID-19 Protocols. For the first time in 11 years of doing Santa Photos, every session will be by APPOINTMENT ONLY. Having appointments will help us to limit the amount of people in our studio and allowing us to sanitize between clients.

We will be posting promotional photos in mid September on what our backdrop theme is for 2020. You can view past years below.

Somethings to remember when visiting Santa in 2020.

  • Santa will be practicing social distancing with everyone. He will be working at his workbench and interacting with all children and parents. Unfortunately Santa will not be holding children this year.
  • If you have a child that is a newborn to 3 years old. I would suggest having someone old enough to hold or be with the child in the photo. Children at this age range tend to be scared of Santa. This would be a great time to make it a family photo.
  • During your Santa session we are limited to 6-8 people in the room at a time. Family/Friends that want to watch the Santa session, they can view thru our huge front lobby window. Minimum of 1 chaperone during the photo session is needed.
  • Appointments are broken into 3 different time slots. 5 mins - $30, 10 mins - $60 and 15 mins - $90. All sessions will be booked online and a non-refundable payment will be taken at that time. (If you have over 4 people, there is a $10 surcharge)
  • After your amazing visit with Santa, you will get to view all your photos in the comfort of your own home. You will receive a payment voucher for your booking fee (example: A 10 min session is booked for $60, We will give you a $60 voucher to take off your online order(If you purchased a session for more than 4 people, there is a $10 surcharge that is not a credit). If you would like to purchase more online. Those options are available.

*Face Masks(Covering Nose & Mouth) will be mandatory for all people NOT taking photos . Thank you
