FREQUENTLY ASKED Questions

WHY DON'T YOU INCLUDE A SANTA IN YOUR PHOTOS?

We get asked this a lot! In short, we wanted to offer an alternative to the generic and sometimes tacky traditional Christmas photos. Not all children like or are comfortable with Santa and it allows up the ability to offer sessions to children with autism or sensory challenges.

WHAT IS AN ONLINE GALLERY?

Our beautiful web galleries give you the ability to view, share and buy all your photos. Giving exclusive access to you, all your images will be safe and secure with password protection.

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

Christmas theme clothing of course! Have some fun with it, dig out the Santa hats from the back of the cupboard. Wear clothing that complements each other but doesn’t totally match, avoid really loud clothing or designs with logos on them. 

HOW CAN I ACCESS MY PHOTOS AFTER THE SESSION?

All your images will be available to view on our easy to use client galleries and can be downloaded, purchased and shared on social media anytime. You can also share the link with friends and family so they too can see the images! 

ARE YOU COVID SAFE?
