Aussie Santa at the Beach
Dear Jennifer, 
Words cannot describe how excited I was to open this email and then to see our beautiful photos! 
Words cannot capture my thanks for the ease of the process, speed in receiving our photos and your amazing product. 
Thank you, thank you, thank you! 
You will most definitely be seeing us again next year. 
Kind regards, 


These are just awesome! You're definitely good at what you do to have managed to catch all of us looking good and all in the same direction!! I was skeptical. LOL. 
I definitely hope you keep doing it as you will see again next year (and most of my friends too by the responses! Thanks again. These photos are a massive hit, especially with my family back in NY and Boston. 
Merry Christmas!

Santa's Location

Santa will be located at Long Reef Beach, at the end of the path through the dunes from the Surf Club. 

To access the Surf Club carpark if you are travelling from the south you will need to travel past the entrance and do a U turn as indicated on the map.

Please note our location may change depending on the weather conditions so look for signs from the car park.

See below map:


What to wear?

What you wear will make all the difference to the final produce. Combinations of red, green, white and navy work well, or any combination of neutral colours you like. The best tip is to lay them all out on a bed and ensure that if all the clothes were somehow worn on the one person they wouldn't clash. Please come as Christmasy as you like, it adds to the fun. 

Please also note it can be very bright at the beach, even though we face the children away from the sun the sand is very light and reflects a lot of light. If you or your children struggle with bright like please consider adding sunglasses to your outfit for the day.

Do you take bookings for Bigger or Extended Families?

Yes, we recommend you book a couple of consecutive sessions to ensure you get more options for photos, as there are 3 images per session.

What happens in the case of wet weather?

We will put alternate dates together or arrange for a booking on an alternate date we already have available for you.

What's your cancellation policy?

Please note we do not accept cancellations within 24 hours of your booking. If you are unable to make the session please notify us prior and we'll endeavour to arrange an alternative session for you. Or you are welcome to find a replacement for your session time.

Can we bring our dog?
Northern Beaches Council do not permit dogs on the beach. However, many families carry their dogs and bring them with them. It's your decision.
What's the best time of day for photos?
The later in the day the better, the sunset light at Long Reef Beach is always beautiful to if you can bring the kids down after dinner that would be the best option.
