Santa Sessions 2022 | Northern Virginia Santa Photos

I am so excited for this year’s Northern Virginia Santa photos at my studio. I still can’t believe how well last year’s Santa Experience went, and I know it’s going to be even more magical this year.

It’s almost the end of August, and I know how hectic things become as your kids go back to school. Mark your calendars now for my Santa Experience on Nov. 11th, 12th, 13th, and 18th! I can’t wait for you and your family to experience all the holiday joy and magic. Plus, these photos are perfect for your holiday card. 

Northern Virginia Santa Photos Testimonials

“As a Santa first-timer, getting the opportunity to be in a calm and inviting environment and having Santa enter the room (as opposed to handing our daughter off to him) made all the difference for us! And even though she was a little timid and unsure when he walked out, the photos we received were so perfect, and our daughter is still smiling whenever we mention Santa’s name. We are already looking forward to our next Santa experience!” – Kaitlyn 

“Emily shot our two children during her Santa Experience sessions. I discovered Emily on Instagram and fell in love with her aesthetic- light, bright, crisp photos with a simple white background. It really allows for the subject of the photos to shine. The Santa photos of our children are more than I ever could have hoped for. They will truly be a keepsake we will have and look back on forever! Secondary to the photos, Santa himself was as perfect as if gets- an absolute dream! We are looking forward to shooting with Emily again in the future & I cannot recommend her enough as a client! Thank you!” – Jessica

Yes! You will receive your online gallery of 10+ high-resolution, downloadable images within three weeks of your session for sharing with friends and family or your Christmas card! 

03. How Long Will Our Santa Session Be?

Santa Sessions are designated for 10 minutes from your scheduled start time. You and your family will be the ONLY guests inside the studio during your time with Santa.

Prints, canvases, and albums are available right through your online gallery!  

05. Can I Be In the Photos Or Is It Just For Children? 

Just for children! That being said, if your child needs to be held by you to feel safe and secure with Santa, that’s totally okay! If your child has special needs, feel free to note that on your client questionnaire! 

If you have any other questions, you can reference my previous blog posts for more information. Of course, feel free to get in touch!
