Christmas is right around the corner, which means shopping centres up and down the town have opportunities for families to get a photo with the main man himself. We are so lucky to have such a great variety of opportunities to get our Santa photos in Brisbane.  There are even options of getting free photos with Santa as well as having your fave pooch in.  Children, pets and Santa in one photo – what could possibly go wrong???

A couple of things to think about when going for your Santa pics with young children. Firstly, whenever you walk past Santa in the lead up, get your child to wave and say hello to him.  This will build up familiarity so when it comes to the big day, hopefully your child will be more comfortable up and close and personal with the man in the red suit. 

If your child does struggle, you may need to be in the photo as well so make sure you go dressed and ready!  If you are looking for baby with Santa photos, you will almost definitely need to be in the photo! Give your children a heads up that you are going for your Santa Claus photo, so they are prepared.

So, get planning, don your best festive clothes and encourage the kids to get their stories straight about how good they have been all year!  We have done all the hard work in finding the places in Brisbane to get your best Santa photos.
