Parents worry about this EVERY year, but it’s totally FINE if it happens! This isn’t our first rodeo, so we work pretty quickly to capture some micro-moments between your kiddo and Santa. Plus Santa and I always have a few different tricks up our sleeves, too. Whether your kid is crying or just not smiling- they’re still sweet holiday memories to look back upon, and I guarantee you’ll appreciate the shared experience.
P.S. There’s really no bribing a child into liking Santa- I never want to force it. If I notice your kid is absolutely terrified of Santa, I’ll then have Santa step away from our set up and continue with just your child’s holiday portraits solo. Refunds and reshoots will not be given under any circumstance.
Santa sessions will take place on the showroom (second) floor at MegMade, located at 2728 N. Elston Avenue, Chicago 60647.
Santa sessions are for immediate family only: children + siblings only. If you have 4+ children, you must book 2 sessions. EACH SESSION WILL LAST APPROX. 3-5 MINUTES.
I will make every effort to get happy images of your child(ren) with Santa, but every kid reacts different for a multitude of reasons. We just have to embrace the chaos along with the smiles!
Please make your best effort to arrive to your session on TIME, if not early (there will be beautiful furniture, treats, and small activities to check out while here). Santa’s schedule keeps him busy this time of year, and these session times are back to back. If you’re more than 5 minutes late, your time may be forfeited. Please plan accordingly for inclement weather, slick roads, construction, limited street parking, getting your child ready/transitioned, etc.
We’re still finalizing the EXACT look, but it will featuring one of MegMade’s beautiful seating arrangements and gorgeous painted furniture! Rest assured that we’ve got pretty fabulous taste, so you’re in great hands. ♀️
I always love comfy classic PJ’s, but I also love the traditional look of holiday sweaters + dresses. I’ll soon post a holiday wardrobe guide with some of my favorite wardrobe brands!
