2017 Santa Lap & Santa Surprise Sessions

Santa’s Lap & A Santa Surprise Sessions

11/10 pm 4-8pm (Santa’s Lap Only)

11/11 am 8-12pm (Santa’s Lap Only) BOOKED

11/17 4-8pm (Santa’s Lap & A Santa Surprise) ALMOST BOOKED

11/18 8-12pm (Santa’s Lap Only) TWO APPOINTMENTS LEFT

JLP’s 7th annual Santa’s Lap session is back and I can say that we are almost booked up!  E-mail me to get yourself an appointment before remaining slots are gone!  Below, you will find descriptions for two types of sessions…Santa’s Lap and Santa Surprise.  The set is beautiful in-studio with a dreamy cream couch and soft curtain backdrop. A super cute cream & red mailbox that reads “North Pole Express Mail”, some hints of Christmas wreath and garlands and even a bit of plaid! I personally would not choose red clothing because Santa’s wears a red suit and the reds always seem to clash because of the different shades of red, but that’s just me! Below is a sample of the set to give you a visual of what Santa and your kids will be sitting in. It’s adorable!!!

Santa’s Lap Pricing

-$150

-approximately 5-10 minutes with Santa

-3 digital images of photographer’s choice

This price covers up to 3 siblings. Additional siblings are $20 each. Additional cousins and adults are $35 each . There is an option to upgrade to receive all images (approximately 10-12 digital images) for only $30 more. You can also add your children’s names onto Santa’s “Nice List” for an additional $10 per child.  Images are delivered digitally via DropBox online.

A Santa Surprise Pricing

-$300

-15 minutes with Santa

This price covers up to 3 siblings. Additional siblings are $20 each. Additional cousins and adults are $35 each.  Your children’s names will be included on Santa’s “Nice List”.  Images are delivered digitally via DropBox online.

The Santa Surprise session starts with photos of your children alone, then Santa sneaks in behind them for a few shots. He then announces his presence and then they work with Santa to find their name on the “nice” list, read a small excerpt from a book, share some hugs, and of course Santa will want to know what they’d like for Christmas, so they will enjoy whispering in his ear to tell him what’s on their list!
