 Santa in Atlanta at Lily Sophia Photography with babies through young children!


Skip the traffic going to the mall, fighting to find parking, and waiting in mile long line while your children (and you!) fast lose patience. Forget about your little ones becoming overwhelmed by all the noise and stimulation for one thirty second snapshot in which they might be scared and crying.

Instead, come join us for a peaceful and magical session in the studio where you'll spend actual face to face time with Santa and enjoy some holiday treats. You'll be the only ones in the studio with Santa and me, so there are no distractions and your child can approach Santa as they feel comfortable! We have lots of tricks up our sleeve to work with babies and children who are shy. The resulting images from our Santa sessions capture the wonder and magic of the Christmas season in a way that the mall experience just can't. 

Are you worried your baby or child will be terrified and you won't end up with any images? Let us know ahead of time! All booked clients will receive a reminder email of their appointment date and time along with some tips and tricks to prepare for a smooth and successful session. We have our ways, and we have some alternative options for you too. While these sessions are for children only, if your little one is more comfortable in your arms, that's totally ok. The comfort and security of your little ones are the most important priority to us. Make sure you're photo ready just in case you need to jump in! 

Santa is sweet, gentle, and kind, and has a twinkle in his eye. That's him pictured up there with this year's holiday background. And yep, his beard is the real deal!

We previously went to Phipps Plaza and were disappointed with our experience. The traffic just to get there was crazy. Parking was insane, the mall was loud and crowded, and the line for Santa was a long line, and the 8x10 photo that came with it just wasn’t anything we were excited about. It felt like we just checked off the box for a Christmas tradition. Meeting Santa at Lauren’s studio was amazing. We showed up at our assigned time with no long line, and then went into the studio when it was our turn. Lauren was warm and friendly, and Santa was so sweet! My two year old son absolutely relished his several minutes of talking to Santa and couldn’t stop hugging him and showing him his cars. The images of him talking to Santa that also show the wonder and amazement in his eyes are absolutely perfect, and we can’t wait to visit again this year! It’s such a magical experience that really gets you in a holiday mood. We’ll never do the mall thing again!

Santa was so nice, and he gave me a high five! I told him what I wanted for Christmas. I asked him what his favorite cookie was, and he whispered it into my ear, and his beard tickled me! I hope I see him again next Christmas. I will give him a BIG hug!
