Dawn Martin Photography and Studio Boo present Christmas Mini Sessions – Now Booking!

We are pleased to announce that Amber and Dawn are joining together this year to bring you the most sensational and Chistmassy Christmas mini sessions ever!

Santa has confirmed he’s had a good rest from last year’s exertions and he’ll be back this year to check that his naughty or nice list is up to date….

Bookings are open now and always sell out fast. To catch up on what he missed out on last year Santa Claus is a particularly busy man this year, so whilst we have several Christmas mini dates for you to choose from, Santa will only be available on the 2nd and 3rd of October.

Check out the FAQ below for everything you need to know!


Santa Claus Cosy Kitchen Mini Sessions – When do they take place?

This year, Santa will join us on October Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd at our Glasgow Studio!

Why October???

We need time after your session to beautifully post process your images, upload them to your private gallery and allow you time to see and place your order. Digital images are available for immediate download, printed products are professionally made at our pro photo lab before dispatching them to you at home. We want to ensure you have plenty of time to enjoy your photographs in the lead up to the big day!

How long is the session?

Your appointment lasts ten minutes, longer than you’ll have with Santa Claus at a grotto, and it’s a much more magical and private experience. There’s plenty of time for your inquisitive little ones to ask Santa questions as well as us getting those perfect portraits that you cherish each year.

How much does it cost?

The session fee is £10 per family and is taken at the time of booking to reserve your place.

This includes:

– a private meet and greet with Santa plus a little gift from the big man.

– a password protected online gallery.

Mimimum package is £50 and includes one digital image which is due on the day of your photoshoot.

There are bolt on packages avabilable.

+ £50 = One additional digital image

+ £105 = Three additional digtal images

+ £250 = Full digital gallery

After your session you’ll receive login details to your online private gallery where you can choose your image and any blot on packages.

Should you wish to purchase prints or wall art from our gorgeous range you can discuss with Dawn and Amber after you have viewed your gallery.

Can I bring somebody else?

The session is valid for siblings from one family only. If you wish to bring cousins/friends or anybody else, please book a session per family. If you book sessions next to each other we are happy to discuss photographing everybody both together and individually – this will depend on numbers and ages and must be arranged in advance.

Babies are welcome as always, however because these sessions are time limited, babies must be able to sit up unaided for extended periods of time by themselves.

Can I change my day or time?

All bookings are final, we have Santa Claus for a limited amount of time and generally sell out quickly, so please note, no amendments can be made to your booking.

Sold! How do I book?

You can book your session here.

We have a little something special this year, too! Father Christmas would like to present each child with their own, personalised ‘Nice List Certificate’ we’re sure they’ll be delighted to receive it! Be sure to click this as an add on at the time of booking.

Nice List Certificate

What if I don’t want to meet Santa Claus or all the Santa sessions are full?

Some children feel shy or overwhelmed when they meet Santa and so we have another wonderful option for you running on 23rd and 24th October!

We have our Christmas Nutcracker Toy Shop session and our ever popular Chrsitmas Eve Window.  We love these sets!  Wrap up warm and you can take a sleigh ride in the snow,  you should also bring your Christmas List to post to Santa using our famous North Pole letter box.




For the Christmas Eve Window sessions bring your PJs and come grab a cookie whilst you watch Santa Claus flies past on his sleigh.


Christmas Eve Window

Santa’s Cosy Kitchen, The Nutcracker Toy Shop  and Christmas Eve Window all follow the same pricing and you can book here.

We can’t wait to welcome you!
