Bookings are NOW OPEN and very often sell out fast!

This year, we have something very special for you...


That's right, the big man himself will be at our studio! Santa is a very busy man, so this year, we have just 3 dates for 'The Santa Claus experience', and once the appointments have gone, no more can be added. We will also still have our renowned Christmas Mini Sessions the following weekend to capture just your family.


When do they take place?

This year, Santa will join us on 22nd, 23rd & 24th October at the Carly Sinden Photography Studio! 

Why October?

After your photoshoot experience, we need time to beautifully process your images, upload them to your private gallery and allow you time to view them and place your order. Digital images are available for immediate download. Printed products are professionally made at our pro photo lab before dispatching them back to the studio for you to collect. We want to ensure you have plenty of time to enjoy your photographs in the lead up to the big day!

How long is the session?

Your appointment lasts ten minutes, longer than you'll have with Father Christmas at a grotto, and much more magical and private experience. There's plenty of time for inquisitive little ones to chat with Santa and for us to capture those perfect portraits.


What is included? 

'The Santa Claus Experience' includes:

- Your private meet and greet with Santa Claus

- A little gift from the North Pole for each child

- Your 10 minute photoshoot session with Carly

After your Christmas photoshoot experience, you will receive login details to your private online gallery, where you can choose your image package and purchase a range of exclusive, professional products and gifts. 

Can I bring somebody else?

The session is valid for siblings/one family only. If you wish to bring cousins/friends/grandparents or anybody else, please book one session each per family. If you book sessions next to each other, we are happy to discuss photographing everybody both together and individually - this will depend on numbers and ages and must be arranged in advance with Carly.

Can I change my day or time? 

All bookings are final, we have Santa for a very limited amount of time and generally sell out quickly, so please note, no amendments can be made to your booking.

Sold! How do I book? 

If you're on our mailing list, you'll receive an email with an exclusive early booking link. Bookings are now live! You can book your space by clicking the 'BOOK NOW' button below!








We also have a little something extra special this year, too! Santa Claus would like to present each child with their very own, personalised 'Nice List Certificate' We are sure they'll be delighted to receive it! Be sure to click this as an add on at the time of booking if you'd like your children to receive their personalised certificate.


What if I don't want to meet Santa?

Fear not, we have two wonderful options for you! Our Christmas Barn set is perfect for a Santa's grotto feel, where you'll find presents and Nutcrackers! Then we have our gorgeous Winter Joy fireplace set, with snowy Christmas trees. Both sets will really bring the Christmas Magic alive for you and your family. You can also pop those Christmas jumpers or PJ for a truly gorgeous, cosy Christmas experience. 

All festive sessions follow the same pricing and go on sale at 7pm, 5th September 2021.

Pop that reminder in your calendar now, while it's on your mind. Fastest finger first when they go on sale!


We can't wait to welcome you!
