Christmas 2020

We're back for another festive season with everybody's favourite man in red!


Things have been a bit topsy turvey this year including some of our favourite Christmas events being cancelled but we have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure we can bring you a safe and fun Santa photo experience and capture your photos like it's still 2019.



So whats different?

We're lucky to have our private space in Church Street where we can ensure the space is sanitised between visitors, ensure only one family is in at a time and offer more efficient contact tracing.


Last Christmas we were able to offer more spaced out sessions and a controlled environment to our additional needs visitors, it was a truly rewarding experience to be able to tailor the traditional experience to those who are unable to access the busy shopping centre Santa experience.

This year we are implementing this model to all of our sessions so we can sanitise the set between clients, this also means we can accommodate additional needs visitors everyday, if you would prefer a music free session or any other accommodations you can let us know in the booking form and we will make it happen.

Learn more about our additional needs sessions here.


Our increased session times and cleaning also mean we can offer our beloved pet sessions daily without the risk of allergens, your pets are an important part of family and we love including them in your Santa photos, our studios location down the back of Central Arcade in Morwell is situated inside the arcade gates ensuring additional safely in the unlikely case of Rover sprouting thumbs and opening the door, we do request all dogs be kept on leashes and cats inside their carriers until shoot time.

We don't just allow cats and dogs and encourage you to bring all (small) pets to be a part of your Santa photos.



FAQ:

Do i need to wear a mask during my session?

You will need to wear a mask into the studio however you may remove it once seated for your photo

Santa will have a non visible mask cleverly disguised under his beard.


Will i still receive a gift from Santa?

Of course, we couldn't stop him if we tried! We even have treats for your pets!

Santa is also still excited to receive your wish list

We handle everything wearing gloves and change them often.


Can i sit next on Santas lap?

Our set includes a bench seat so you can sit as close to Santa as possible however sitting on Santas lap is not encouraged at this time, for infants and small children who require an adult to sit up we recommend a parent join them in their photo.


Can i hug Santa?

Santa prefers a chrisp thumbs up or foot-5 this year instead of a hug or hi-5.
