Wake up Santa!!! CHRISTMAS PHOTOS at Urban Retreat- 2018

Well it’s that time of year again…..Ho Ho Ho!! Kristielle Gibbons Photography will be setting up at the awesome location of Urban Retreat to welcome Santa back for 2018 Christmas photos. Due to the large demand, I will be taking bookings like last year. Again, if your little ones are not a fan of the big man and would like pictures without Santa, I will have session times where he will be busy with his elves making toys.

Come and enjoy your Santa experience and grab a delicious coffee/meal/snack and let the kids play!

Session dates are:

Friday 30th November day/night

Saturday 1st December day/twilight

Sunday 2nd December day

For those that had their pictures taken last year, you’ll see that this is not like the standard Santa photos, this is the real experience [cookies, milk bottles, Santa’s list]!! Santa will talk to your little ones, and take the time to give them that unforgettable experience of all things Christmas. If parents would like to bring along a wrapped up present, we can organise that Santa will pull the present from his sack and make this part of the documented photography experience.

Fingers crossed that this year is another unforgettable experience with a different setup!!What colour will Santa’s chair be?…..

Here are a few tips to get the most out of your Santa experience:

  • let your child take their time with Santa. Do not force them to sit on Santa’s lap if they are more comfortable to stand or sit near him [unless you are secretly hoping for that “terrified” reaction, which does make for a funny pic but remember your child may not see the humour in it!]
  • Best to dress your little ones in neutral/ natural shades of clothing or Christmas clothes.
  • If you’d like to have a family portrait please note this when making the booking and we will do this at the start to avoid teary eyes if your child is likely to be upset by seeing Santa.

There will be the option of bringing along a USB and having your entire session of pictures for keepsake [$50] with one 5×7 print included and the option to add more prints to your package at $10 each. If you would like a family portrait without Santa added to your package [great to print as xmas gifts for family/friends] this is an extra $20.

Other packages are available:

Any 1 5×7 photo [with or without Santa] $20

Any 2 5×7 photos $30

Any 3 5x7photos $45

Family portrait [without Santa] $20


*Note: please understand that there is a small price increase from last year to help cover the costs involved with hire, baking cookies, decorations, printing etc. 

Here is Santa reading his book, drinking his tea…..just waiting for you to come along and pop up on his knee!!
