Here comes santa claus, here comes santa claus, right down santa claus lane...

Enjoy a magical visit with Santa OR a simple holiday mini session at Elle Baker Photography!  Santa sessions are a one on one experience with the jolly old elf and is a wonderful experience for both children and parents. 
Simple holiday mini's are a winter inspired setup - perfect for those interested in social distancing (or for those kiddos petrified of Santa).

Pick your session!  I am offering simple Santa sessions AND a holiday mini session this year! 

For those a little scared or unsure of Santa, the holiday mini would be a great option!  Although we will do our best to socially distance at the Santa session event, the holiday mini sessions are a great option if you want to completely stay socially distanced from others.  Studio safety precautions will be asked by all parties participating.

A detailed guide including what to wear information, how to prepare, location details, etc. will be sent to you via email upon registering!

*All sales are final, non refundable, and non transferable. Sessions will be a little different this year as we need to keep everyone healthy and follow safety guidelines.   Sessions are about 3-5 minutes long or until I feel I have a great gallery to present to you. They will be booked every 10 minutes to allow you to come in and prepare for the session.  Due to the uncertainty of COVID and symptoms, your payment will be due 48 hours BEFORE the session date.  An email with payment details will be sent to you on November 11th for Santa Sessions and November 20th for holiday mini sessions.   Clients over the age of 2 will need to be masked during the Santa sessions.  The set up will allow for social distancing and maintain 6 feet apart.  Parents and children (no grandparents, cousins, friends, etc.) will be the only people allowed to these sessions this year to keep minimal people in the studio space.  Temperatures will be taken upon arrival.


Both the Santa Sessions AND Holiday Mini sessions will take place at my studio in Homer Glen.

12544 W. 159th Street 
Homer Glen, IL 60451

Santa sessions are for children and siblings only. If you have 4 children or more you must book 2 spots. Cousins may schedule two slots back to back and combine sessions for individual photos and cousins together.  Each session will last approximately 3-5 minutes. I do my best to get happy images with Santa, but every child reacts differently. We will embrace everything from smiles to tears. Should I capture more than 4 images, there will be the option to upgrade. Kindly note - as of right now, Santa will be wearing a festive mask during the session and your children will be socially distanced from him.  A holiday arrangement will be separating clients and Santa.

I ask that you kindly arrive PROMPTLY at your session time.  Santa's schedule this time of year is VERY busy and book these sessions back to back.  If you are more than 5 minutes late, your session time will be forfeited and you will be invited to come back to the studio for a Holiday Mini Session (no Santa).  Please plan accordingly for snow, slick roads, construction, getting your child ready, etc.  To keep the studio a safe working environment and avoid a crowded waiting room- we ask that you text upon arrival and we will text you back when we are ready for you to enter the studio.

Unfortunately due to allergies and building policy, no pets are allowed on the premises.

The exact set up is still being designed but will reflect my minimalist style.  You can view the studio HERE to get an idea of my simple white space.

The Santa session set up will allow for the children and Santa to remain 6 feet apart.  Depending on parents comfort level, Santa is happy to wear a mask and take photos with your kiddos.  Children over the age of 2 will be required to wear a mask. 

The holiday mini's will consist of pajamas or comfy clothes with a bed set up.  Kids can snuggle and cuddle in their coordinating pajamas/ clothes and we will capture candid and playful images of them for the holiday!  I encourage parents to jump in for a few as well!

 I will update this Q&A as soon as the final design is sketched.


YES! Most come in comfy PJ's but some come in classic sweaters and holiday outfits.  A wardrobe guide will be sent upon booking with some of my favorite vendors!
