Getting to see Santa in the flesh will be one of the many highlights of Christmas for a lot of children. Santa may be busy making sure children all over the world are behaving, but he’s going to find time to visit us so that we can get our Santa photos in Adelaide this Christmas.

There are a few things you can do to prepare for your photos to give you the best chance of getting your best Santa photos yet.  Plan ahead – Try to go at the beginning of the season to avoid the longest lines and busiest time at shopping centres.  This is a simple one, but make sure the kids are well rested, fed and watered.  Build up familiarisation with Santa by saying hello and waving with your child whenever you pass him in the shopping centre.  Hopefully, they will feel more relaxed when it is time to get up close and personal.
