Waiting for Santa sessions 2018 at Secret Smile Photography Leeds photography studio header image
Waiting for Santa sessions 2018

These sessions were super popular last year and will be held early on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th November to allow for the amount of time they will take to edit. The sessions will be held to photograph your child or children in 3 specifically designed 'sets' that may not appear particularly magical in their own right but will be edited in a creative and magical way to produce stunning works of art that you will be able to treasure forever.


A few years ago I photographed my son sitting on our living room window ledge and pointing at the lamp post over the road, then turned it into something truly magical that I adore as it just reminds me of the wonderful Christmas magic that children see.


I want to be able to create this magic for you and your children that you can treasure for years to come so the 'Waiting for Santa' sessions have been put together to create the magic of Christmas for your family too.


There is no 'set' as such, the children won't see any Christmas magic at the studio but the images I capture will be used to create wonderfully magical Christmas portraits. 3 different Christmas themed portraits will be shot and created.

The cost of the session is £25 for taking the images and the time taken to create your 3 works of art and are for suitable for children of any age, babies MUST be able to sit unaided for these sessions. These sessions can be for up to 3 children, they will be photographed together for each of the 3 scenes. You can also bring your child's favourite soft toy and if you have a pet they are welcome to be included in the session too.
