The Santa Experience with Santa Todd and Jess Lombardi Photography

share this:

Santa’s fee goes directly to charity! Book a session and help families with children suffering from childhood cancer. Please know that this Santa is truly special…he’s an Army Vet who donates ALL of his earnings directly to a charity called Gold in Fight which supports local families who have children fighting cancer. Which means that a big chunk of your payment goes directly to this amazing charity!  CLICK HERE TO BOOK THIS SESSION:

Sessions are for up to 3 children or pets, siblings only. If you have 4 or more children or want to make this a family session please book two time slots back to back. If you have trouble booking back to back sessions still book two sessions, and email me so I can adjust the timing for you.

The outcome of the images has my clients coming back year after year to use these as their yearly portraits and for Christmas cards or Holiday cards!

Please note the pictures below were from a test shoot and will not be the backdrop or style for next year. The photos will be more of a lifestyle and intimate shoot with a bold backdrop that will be announced by September 2024.

How far in advance do you need to book your Santa Experience?

My most popular sessions are the Christmas Minis and now the Santa Mini Sessions! I get emails for booking Fall and Christmas sessions a year in advance and I generally post my mini sessions for booking by the end of July and they book up almost immediately! Since Santa has to get schedule his time carefully I need to book these a year in advance in January 2024 to ensure everyone gets a spot!

What can you expect from a Santa Mini Session in this studio in Annapolis MD?

This isn’t your average Christmas photo session or visit with Santa at the mall. It’s a customized experience where Santa knows your child by name and even some special information about them.

The Christmas magic comes from a questionnaire filled out by you at the time of booking. It’s important (and required) that you fill out the questionnaire when booking so that Santa can fill the session with personal touches while talking to your child.

What does it cost for a mini session?

My pricing is competitive for mini sessions and the price is based on the type of session. Most mini sessions include 5 edited images with the option to purchase more. Since these are only 10 minute sessions and the photos are a little more artistic you will receive 3 edited images with the option to purchase more. While these sessions are very quick your proofing gallery still will contain up to 100 images to choose from. You won’t believe how many great shots we can get in 10 minutes! For families you must book two slots back to back as Santa Sessions are only up to 3 sibilings, pets included in that!

What should I wear for a Santa Session?

In my opinion it is best to not be too matchy matchy, but coordinated! Where your childs best dressed outfit for Christmas or something that truly is special to them. For instance my daughter wore her Elsa Christmas gown, and Santa just KNEW she would be wearing it which made her excited to hear!
