Santa by the Bay| 2018 Holiday Season

Santa by the Bay| 2018 Holiday Season

Last holiday season…

I did lots of thinking throughout this year on what I wanted to offer my clients for this holiday season. It all started last year when my sister-in-law made a house call to Santa “Jeff” and he came to visit the children in her home. I LOVED it. It provided a fantastic experience. We didn’t wait in line, Santa read us a story, interacted with the children and gave everyone a little gift. THIS is how a visit from Santa should be. That is how Santa by the Bay came into existence.

This holiday season…

I decided I wanted to offer this experience to my clients PLUS the added bonus of me documenting their visit with Santa! Santa will start with reading “The Night Before Christmas”, he will chat with them and offer them a little wrapped gift, and at the end when they are comfortable we will take a formal portrait with Santa. Check out the information below on how to book your session with Santa by the bay.

What you will get…
  • 15 minutes with Santa 
  • An experience with Santa where your children are not rushed in and rushed out for a photo
  • 15-20 images with a print release
  • A small gift (think ice cream) for the children to unwrap

Saturday, November 10th. Santa by the Bay sessions will be in the early AM to provide the best lighting for the portraits.


They will be held at the Fairhope Beach by Mobile Bay.

How much…


How to book…

Shoot me an email, fill out the contact form on my website, or message me on my business page on Facebook.  I will send you the agreement and an invoice. 50% is due at the time of a booking and the remaining balance is due 7 days before the session date. I am only offering 6 sessions to allow time for it be more of an experience for my clients. The sessions are first come, first serve and a session isn’t reserved until both the agreement has been signed and the payment has been made.

Be sure and check out Santa Jeff on Facebook.

I am Jessica Smith. I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Spanish Fort, Alabama. Born and raised in Alabama, I have lived on the Gulf Coast for the most of my life. After adventures with my husband’s job in the Coast Guard, we decided it was time to follow our hearts and settle down back on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay. Being from Fairhope, my southern heritage is apparent from the time you meet me. My southern “twang” and my love of Alabama football are the giveaways. I am a wife and a mother to three gorgeous sons. I also love to garden and promoting wellness in the world.
