2020 has been a crazy year and many people are concerned for their family's safty. Here are a few things that are important for you and your children's safety.
This is a small private session, including our staff and your family.
We schedule 30 minutes between sessions so that you do not come in contact with other families while coming to and departing from our studio.
We will take the time to sanatize the studio between session.
Santa will use a new clean pair of gloves for every session.
We now have two Santa's who can substitute in case our primary Santa is sick. Santa's are under strict orders not to come in if they are not feeling well.
If any of your children are feeling ill please do not come to your session. Call us as soon as possible. If you call us during sessions it can be difficult to reach us because phones are off. We will check for text messages between sessions. Just because it is 2020 we will be liberal with our cancellations. First we will do everything we can to reschedule you for an alternate time. We can also move you into a 2021 session. We will do everything to make this happen for you.
Because of the nature of our business we do not require masks. Children can wear them until they are taken into the session, but be sure they do not imprint lines on their faces. During the session they obviously can not wear masks. Santa for the same reason can not. I'm directing and photographing which makes it impossible to wear a mask myself. We recommend parents and grandparent wear masks during the session, but we do not require it. You can make the decision based on your comfort zone.
We will have sanitizing lotion dispensers available and would like children to sanitize their hands prior to their session. They may use it afterwards too.
Unrelated to illness - We have had some parents leave the session so they won't distract babies and other young children. Our policy is never to ask parents to leave, but if you decide it is necessary be assured that there will be three people in the studio at all times with your children. Having raised 8 kids and now having 16 grandchildren we understand how important that is. Our Santa's have all had background checks and are members of the Utah bearded Santa association. We want your children to have a safe and unforgettable experience.
