Photographs

Throughout your visit with Santa, our photographer will take candid pictures, and when it is time for posed photographs they will get everyone to look at the camera for a Christmas Card moment. You will receive all of the pictures (no having to pick and choose, you get all of the high-resolution photographs).

Social Visits

Holiday Studio Santa at Billings Bridge is independently operated by Idea3 as a portrait studio. As income from photograph sales pay for all staff, equipment, and PPE supplies, sadly this year there cannot be any "social visits without photographs" in 2021. Due to following stringent guidelines, which we embrace for the safety of all, we have limited ourselves to no more than 12 appointments per hour of operation. 

By following this proactive system - as a portrait studio - there are some important benefits.

1. No Line Ups - therefore no mass gatherings

2. You have an appointed time of your choosing - no waiting 3 hours to see Santa

3. You receive all of the photographs in an online gallery - no time spent picking and choosing 

Arrivals
Please arrive at reception 2 to 5 minutes prior to your appointed time and show your email (or give your registrants' name) to the greeter.

Lobby Area
After screening, you will be shown to an area where you can deposit your belongings at a freshly sanitized table. 

Additional Safety Procedures

All on-site staff have their COVID-19 vaccination certificates and will wear mouth & nose coverings.
Sanitization of public areas - all staff are responsible for the cleanliness of the areas after each visit.

Reservations

Online reservations can be made online using a credit card to secure your prepaid appointment.
Reservations can be made in-person using cash, credit, or debit during the Santa schedule - however, priority will be given to arriving and registered visitors.
