Step into a snowy birch forest near a lake, try on some ice skates, build a snowman, have a snowball fight with the whole family and enjoy the simplicity of Christmas time in nature. Santa will visit with the kids, dressed as Father Christmas, to help decorate the snowman and of course, hear all of their Christmas wishes. This year’s Fine Art Santa will take you back in time, to a traditional winter wonderland and capture the peace and joy that is the true essence of the spirit of Christmas!

Step into a snowy birch forest near a lake, try on some ice skates, build a snowman, have a snowball fight with the whole family and enjoy the simplicity of Christmas time in nature. The only difference with our Family Christmas session is Santa will not be there.

All purchases are final. If there is a need to cancel your appointment, the $390 session fee will be applied towards another portrait session with Gigi Fine Art Portraits within a year of purchase date.

We know you will love your 2022 Christmas portraits so much that you’ll want even more products to cherish. Transform your home each holiday season to come with Wall Art Canvases. Create a treasured item to share and reminisce over with our Storybook Albums. Need help with hard-to-buy-for relatives? Make a bold statement with custom designed Christmas Cards. We can check off every person on your Christmas list with a variety of personalized gifts featuring your favorite images from your Christmas session. All of our prints, wall art and storybook albums are heirloom quality, which means they are printed on fine art paper or canvas, will stand the test of time and look beautiful for many years to come.
After you have scheduled your appointment, Gigi will reach out to you by phone. (Please note if you signed up during Christmas in July, Gigi will call for your consult closer to the date of your Fine Art Santa Session.) During the consultation she will discuss the various poses and props to be used depending on the age of your children and briefly review the process. She can offer suggestions on outfits choices that look best with the scene. Please see our What to Wear guide below for some ideas before you consultation. If you have any special needs, concerns or questions this is a great time to discuss with Gigi so everything runs smoothly on portrait day.
Please see the link below for full pricing of our 2022 Fine Art Santa products. Depending on the products you choose, additional charges may apply for custom editing, shipping and delivery services. This will be discussed during your ordering session with Gigi. And don’t forget: you get a $200 credit to use towards your final product purchase, included in your portrait session fee! Please note pricing is the same for Family Christmas Portrait Sessions.
On the day of your Fine Art Santa Session, Martha will help you schedule an online ordering session with Gigi which will happen a week or so later. We will have a range of days and times available to meet your needs. During your 1 hour online ordering session, you will review, choose all your favorite portraits and place your order! Due to a high number of Fine Art Santa clients, we ask that you be prepared to make payment in full within 2 days of your ordering session. By completing orders in a timely manner, we are best able to keep our workflow humming along and guarantee delivery for you and our other clients in a predictable time frame before Christmas. Please ask Gigi for availability of other products not shown or listed on the price list if you have a special idea in mind!
Our goal is to have all products completed and ready to be picked up or delivered by mid December. We will send out any digital files you have ordered first via Dropbox, for you approval before creating your products. If you need or want your final products BEFORE Thanksgiving, we recommend an October date for your Fine Art Santa session. Our team will work on your images and product order on a first come, first serve basis, based on your ordering session and payment dates. We always suggest scheduling the earliest possible ordering session available and making full payment on your invoice at the end of your ordering session. Your prompt response to approval emails will also ensure the best turnaround time. We cannot start editing any images until your invoice is paid in full. If you are ordering Christmas Cards or mailing gifts out of state, please keep in mind the time you will need to prepare your cards or package and the usual delayed USPS shipping time during the holidays.
You may reschedule your appointment by calling Martha at 518-312-2598. Please view the available appointments on the website scheduler before calling to have an idea of what day and time you would like. You may cancel your appointment for a refund (minus our processing fee) within 24 hours. After 24 hours, your session fee is NON REFUNDABLE. You can use the $590 as a credit towards a future portrait session with Gigi Fine Art Portraits booked within one year from your cancellation.
