Yes you’ve guessed it…

SANTA CLAUS himself is coming to the Life in Focus Portrait Studio for our exclusive SMILE WITH SANTA PHOTO EXPERIENCE

…I’m so excited I could burst.

No need to queue for hours in a busy shopping centre only to be rushed through with other families watching on.

Our Exclusive SANTA EXPERIENCE means your family get to spend a magical 10 minutes with the man himself, giving your wee ones plenty of time to chat to Santa and show him their Christmas list.

Each child will receive a little piece of Christmas Magic to take home with them ready for Christmas Eve.

And as an added extra you can purchase one of our super special “Nice List Certificates” for Santa to give to your child.  A great incentive for them to keep up that stellar behaviour!

As you know Santa is a very busy man with lots of boys and girls he needs to see, so these sessions are extremely limited.

Tickets are just £45 per family (immediate family only, for cousins etc please book 2 consecutive sessions.) and include your favourite image as a high resolution digital download.

Our VIP list will get access to early booking, so get your name on “THE LIST”. to ensure you get first dibs!

The Smile With Santa Experience….your questions answered!

What date is Santa coming?

Santa will be coming to the Life in Focus Portrait Studio on Saturday 9th October.

Why October???

After your session I need time to edit your beautiful photos, upload them to your private gallery and allow you time to choose your photos and place your order.  If you order printed products we need to get these printed for you, whilst digital images will be available for immediate download, enabling you to order all manner of wonderful personalised gifts from your choice of retailer.

Photos make the perfect gift for the family, we want to ensure that you have everything in plenty of time, ready to be wrapped and placed under the tree.

How long do we get to spend with Santa?

Your time with Santa lasts 10 minutes, about 5 times longer than you’ll have with Father Christmas at a grotto, and a much more magical and private experience.  Giving your wee ones plenty of time to chat to Santa whilst I capture some beautiful portraits.

How much does it cost?

The ticket price is £12 and includes:

– a private meet and greet with Father Christmas.

– a little gift from the North Pole.

After your session you’ll receive login details to your online gallery where you can purchase a range of products. (PLEASE NOTE, no images are included in the ticket price)

Can I bring somebody else?

The session is valid for one family only.  If you wish to bring cousins/friends or anybody else, please book a session per family.  If you book consecutive sessions I am happy to capture a couple of images of everybody together.  Please be sure to let me know your plans at the time of booking.

Can I change my appointment time/date?

All bookings are final, Santa Claus is a very busy man and we are expecting these sessions to sell out.

Can I take my own photos?

No, personal photography and videography is not permitted in the studio.

Sold! How do I book?

If you’re on our VIP list, you’ll receive an email with an exclusive early booking link.  Bookings will open at 8pm on Sunday 19th September for our VIP list, then on Monday 20th at 8.30pm the booking link will go live on here on our website.


Anything else?
