I cannot even begin to describe how excited I am for Santa to come visit us again for the 2022 Holiday Minis! Not only is Santa AMAZING, but it is the perfect option for those wanting to see Santa and update family portraits at the same time.

Investment: $325 | 15 minutes | all edited images
Location: Private Studio in Longwood, FL
I did these sessions for the first time last year (2021) and there was one word everyone kept saying to me: MAGICAL! A private experience with the sweetest Santa, plus family photos done at the same time made for some happy families!
Here's the thing. Santa wants to make this experience so memorable for your children, while I capture it all for you. Want Santa to compliment your daughter's good grades? He will! Want him to tell your kids that your Elf On The Shelf reported your boys need to share toys better? He will do that too! I will gather information about your children from you beforehand to pass along to Santa. Your children will be so amazed he knows their names and something special about them!
Family photos, individuals with Santa, we will capture it all for you and make sure you leave feeling the magical spirit of Christmas!
"We absolutely LOVED working with Leslie to capture our family photos. Our first experience in working with her incredible Santa made for a wonderful addition to our holiday memories with our daughter- he was interactive, engaging, and a true delight, as was Leslie. She is amazing with children, and as evidenced in her social media and website, her photography is gorgeous. We can't wait to capture more photos together on an annual basis!"
"The first time we worked with Leslie was for her Santa Mini Sessions. The experience was amazing AND the photos were even more amazing!! She perfectly captured our family (one being a very hard to photograph toddler) and when I say the images were priceless, I mean it! I will forever cherish the interactions she captured between my girls and Santa. The studio was perfect and Santa was MAGICAL. I can't wait to book again next year!"
"This was our first Santa/Christmas mini session. I was nervous, but Leslie was so kind, informative, and patient with all of my questions. We were so pleased with EVERY part of the process! From the gorgeous studio background to the PERFECT Santa, and the crisp high quality of our photos. I have and will continue to recommend Leslie to everyone! Thank you, Leslie, for capturing this special moment and giving us forever memories for our family!"
Yes! A $50 nonrefundable retainer payment is due at the time of booking, along with a signed contract. Spots are not fully reserved until both the contract and payment have been received. Your remaining balance of $275 is due one week prior to your session. For your convenience, all payments are made electronically via HoneyBook.
Up to 6 family members are included in the standard investment of the session ($325). Each additional family member is $25. Families with more than 8 individuals will need to reserve two time slots if you wish to do a variety of group combinations and give each person one-on-one time with Santa.
Unfortunately, pets are not permitted in the studio for Santa Mini sessions.
You will receive your gallery within 10 days of your session! Due to the quick turnaround time of mini sessions, sneak peek photos will not be given, but you'll have them within 10 days! Your gallery will be delivered to you via email, and it will be password protected. You will have full rights to the photos, so you may print, post and distribute them however you would like.
Don't stress- this happens from time to time! I always begin the session by doing just family photos first, without Santa. That way, if your child reacts in fear, you still have great family photos! Also, Santa is wonderful and very calm with the children. Most children do great after a few minutes, and we have parents join the photos too for additional comfort. And yes- if your child cries, I will still deliver those photos to you to have for the memories!
The setup will be slightly different this year! There will be a different couch, and flocked Christmas trees behind the couch instead of a wreath on the wall. The sessions will be held in the same studio, with the white wall paneling in the back, and it will be the exact same Santa that is pictured on this page. Below you can see the couch and trees that will be used!
There is no set number of images you will receive- you will get all of them! I guarantee a minimum of 15 images from your session, but most galleries end up being larger than that. The number of images you receive will depend on participation and cooperation of family members.
