My Family Photo is capturing the unique essence of an Australian Christmas this year with Santa in the Park mini-sessions at Footscray Gardens.
You can avoid busy shopping centres and book in advance, which means no waiting in queues with impatient kids. All you need to do is just turn up to the park at your pre-selected time, ready to meet Santa!
For $80 you'll have a 10 minute photo session with our Santa and receive 7 fully edited, high resolution, digital images that you can download directly from an online gallery within 7 days of your session.
These images can then be printed as much as you like, and shared with your family and friends on social media. All families who book a Santa session will also receive a digital Christmas card featuring one of the photos from the session (you are welcome to choose the photo you like best to be featured on the card).
Professional photographer Kate Sheffield will capture fun, family moments between Santa and your family. However, if you’d prefer just some photos of the kids with Santa that’s fine, too.
Santa is visiting for one day only, so please be quick to make your booking! If it rains on the 3rd, sessions will be rescheduled for Sunday the 10th December. Please note existing vouchers and coupon codes cannot be applied to Santa sessions as the package prices and session running times are different.
If you want to book a regular 30 minute mini-session, we are holding these on other days in Melbourne. Please click on the link above to see what dates are currently available.
Refund Policy: 7 days notice required for a full refund. Re-scheduling requires 7 days notice. In the case of bad weather (heavy rain) the photo session may be cancelled and you'll be given the option of rescheduling or a refund.
If you need to reschedule less than 7 days before your session then a $40 rescheduling fee applies. If you need to reschedule or refund your booking, then please contact the office using the form here . Your photographer is NOT able to refund or reschedule your booking for you.
Had a fantastic time, very impressed by the quality of photos, you really captured us, especially our baby perfectly! Our photographer was fantastic, so friendly, professional and talented. We highly recommend and can not wait to do a shoot with you later in the year when the family comes to visit. 5/5 by Louise cooper Family Portrait Mini-Sessions 10-7-2019
