Q: Do I get to take a photo home with me that day? 
A: No. You get something better! You'll have access to a high quality, digital file to share with friends and family or print at your local photo-printing service.

Q: How long does it take to get my digital file back? 
A: Your photos should be available by the end of the next week - that's about 5 days. Each session will include 1-2 edited, final images. 

Q: My dog is really rambunctious, can I still bring him? 
A: Of course! However, Santa may be a magical, jolly fat man, but his powers don't necessarily extend to management of rowdy canines or fearful cats. You may have to handle your own dog or cat. 

Q: How do I register in advance? 
A: We should have the registration form available soon. You can print it out and bring the completed form with you on the day of your shoot. 

Q: Do I make an appointment? 
A: The sessions are unscheduled, drop-in appointments. Wait times are usually less than 5 minutes.

Q: Can I bring my kids and my pets? If I don't have pets, can I just bring my kids? 
A: Of course! Pets aren't required. Santa is happy to sit with families of all kinds. 

Q: Can I bring my chicken (ferret, tortoise, bird, etc)? 
A: Sure! As long as your pet is friendly and safe to be handled, you're welcome to bring it. 

Q: Will you have fun costumes to put on our pets? 
A: No. In order to prevent common pet ailments, viruses, and parasites, we do not offer pet clothing. You're welcome to bring costumes for your pet if you would like.
