Santa reading her Christmas list

      It’s that time of year again! Oh yes, my favorite time of year. The holidays are coming fast and we have TWO options this year for you to celebrate and commemorate the season with your family.

      This year, the big weekend is November 12th/13th!

      OPTION 1: Our annual “Magic of Christmas Storybook” Limited Edition Session Event, on Saturday, November 12th (one-day-only)

      This is our big holiday event at Gilfillan Farm in Upper St. Clair, with a horse-drawn carriage ride and private audience with Santa. These sessions are the highlight of our year and we love to see the kids light up when the big guy reads to them and they tell him what they want this year.

      Here’s what to expect: When you arrive, you’ll check in with Kirstin and you’ll get into a horse-drawn carriage and ride through the farm up to the white barn to your 15 minute private audience with Santa where he will read to your children and they can tell him all about what they’d like for Christmas. Santa also has a special authentic gift (Hint: ring-a-ling-a-ling) for each family, and a little treat for each child.

      Tracy and her shooting assistant, Kelly will photograph your whole experience up at the barn.

      At the end of your time with Santa, your carriage will pick you up to take you back down to the lot!

      Tracy will edit approximately 12-15 images for you to choose from, and you’ll have the option of purchasing our exclusive Magic of Christmas Storybook featuring the famous poem “The Night Before Christmas” alongside images of your children’s experience with Santa!

      The $190 session fee includes the entire experience for the family, as well as 1 matted 5×7 print of your favorite image.

      The Storybook, digital files, 5×5 albums, additional prints and holiday cards are available a la carte and in Collections starting at $290.

      This is an experience to cherish! Contact Kirstin for available session times.

      OPTION 2: Holiday Card Sessions on Sunday, November 13th (one-day-only)

      For those wanting to commemorate the holidays without Santa, we decided to add a day of holiday-themed sessions (also at Gilfillan Farm) that are perfect for getting great images for your holiday cards! We can help with printing gorgeous cards, but if you prefer to DIY, you are welcome to do that as well.
      ~ The session fee is $85 for a 15 minute session.
      ~ Tracy will edit and show you approximately 10 images to choose from.
      ~ You’ll have the option to purchase digital files, prints, holiday cards, and other items either a la carte or in collections starting at $290.

      I know it isn’t quite Halloween yet, but November is right around the corner and in order for you to get your cards, books and prints back in time, and for us to have time with our families over the holidays, we offer these sessions early in November. Not to mention Santa needs to get back up to the North Pole.

      SPECIAL BONUS: If you book your session by October 20th, you’ll receive a sweet complimentary holiday gift featuring an image from your session.

      If you think you’d like to partake in the magic this year, contact Kirstin asap to book your session!
