FAQ

How does a Limited Edition session work?

Limited Edition Sessions at Smallish are unique, stylized shoots for those special times of the year. Booking your session is easy: simply click here to select your session date and time. Your session payment reserves your slot.

How should I dress my kiddos?

At Smallish, we love classic colors and neutrals, and solid or simple patterns. Check back here to see our studio Style Guide, Pinterest boards and recommended retailers. Remember what matters most is that your session is a reflection of your family!

Is there an extra charge for more than one child?

No! We encourage all the siblings to join in on the fun. :)

If I have more than one child, will they each be photographed with Santa, or will it be a group photo?

We’ll get individual photos and group photos!

Can we get a family photo while we’re at it?

These short sessions are designed just for kids and Santa. Please inquire about options for a full family session. We have a limited number of October and November dates available.

Will you just be taking photos with Santa, or will you take others, too?

Santa is what makes these sessions so special so your mini session will be mostly focused around St. Nick. However, we typically do sneak in a few more classic and simple photos to add a nice variety to your image options.

What are the best ages for the Santa sessions?

We take all the smallish ones, from the wee little ones up to 12 years old! :)

What happens if my child cries?

Our team understands that a room full of strangers can feel scary sometimes! We have lots of tricks up our sleeves to help your child feel happy and at ease.

How much should I expect to spend?

On average, clients spend $175 - $750 on custom prints and holiday gifts.

What happens if I’m running late to my appointment?

We will be running a tight ship (or sleigh!) so it’s important to arrive 15 minutes early to your appointment to check in and allow your children to settle into the studio. Your appointment will start at your reserved time and end within fifteen minutes. Due to the busy nature of the day, we cannot guarantee late arrivals.

How and when will I choose my photos?

Ordering appointments take place within one week at Smallish Photo Studio. At this appointment, you’ll view a selection of 5 to 15 unique portraits and select your favorite image that comes included with your prepaid session. You’ll also have the opportunity to purchased additional images and custom holiday gifts.

Can I place my order online?

To best serve our clients, all orders are placed and picked up at the studio.

What happens if I can’t make my session?

Your session fee is non-refundable but in the event that you need to cancel your session, the value is fully transferable to a studio session on another date.
