santa experience

Saturday, November 16th • 9:00am – 5:00pm

Cozy up inside and show your child the magic of Santa in an intimate and stress free setting, where they can meet Santa, ask him questions, and tell him what they are wishing for.

WHAT IS INCLUDED

• 10 Minutes with Santa
• 8 High Resolution Files
• Nice list certificate
• Online Gallery

LOCATION: 177 Sound Beach Ave, Old Greenwich, CT 06870

Santa sessions are for babies/children and siblings only.
If you have 4 children or more children you must book 2 spots.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS CANCELLATIONS: Absolutely no refunds will be given, but you may transfer your session to another party or use your credit on file for a future session.

FINAL GALLERY: The images included in your gallery are selected at the sole discretion of the photographer. Michael chooses the best images for a collection and chooses to edit all keepers, simply discarding blinks, duplicates, etc. Michael is not responsible for reactions to Santa or a child having various emotions and feelings (and therefor facial expressions) toward Santa.

IMAGE DELIVERY: An online gallery will be provided within 1 week of your Santa meeting. From the gallery you will choose your 5 images to download and purchase more if desired. Babies and children only. No parents. Up to 4 children are included (must be siblings). Please schedule 2 slots for more than 4 children. Cousins may schedule two slots together and combine sessions for individual photos and cousins together.

SESSION INFORMATION: Each session will last approximately 8-10 minutes. The reason for this is NOT to rush you, but to get the best out of each child. Some children are fine in just a few minutes with Santa and some take a few minutes longer. I take however long we need to create a collection of images up to my standards. This may mean 5 minutes and it may mean 10 minutes. Please note that once a baby or child begins crying or melting down, they often are not able to recover, so I do my best to photograph quickly, again not to rush you, but to give them the least amount of anxiety.

COPYRIGHT: Ravanelli Photography retains all copyright and provides a personal print release with all downloads. Ravanelli Photography may use images from Santa sessions for promotional use, both online or in print.

RECOMMENDED CLOTHING: winter/holiday pajamas (our favorite!) OR simple clothing with NEUTRAL tones such as creams, greys, whites, browns, and gold/silver. Please no letters or characters, bright/large patterns, or fancy large dresses to overpower your child & Santa, etc. SIMPLE AND NEUTRAL IS ALWAYS BETTER! Santa will be in red and white, and as usual a white background on a cream couch.

BE PREPARED: Please note that each Santa session is scheduled so that you will have a minimal wait time in the studio, separate from Santa, but a few minute wait may occur. It’s best to arrive at least 10 minutes before your schedule time, so you are not rushing from parking. Please plan to spend anywhere from 15-40 minutes total in the studio that day, as this is a large event and we try to keep things running as smoothly as possible, having each family sign in as they arrive and going in order. Snacks & drinks will be available during this time.

By finalizing your session/payment you agree to the above terms & conditions.
