Who will save Christmas?
As you know Covid-19 has caused chaos with normal life and traditions. One of those traditions is having your children sit on Santa’s lap and tell him what they want for Christmas.
But what about safety? Your children’s safety is paramount and going to the mall Santa, even if the mall has a Santa, is not as safe an option as you would like. According to reports even if the mall has a Santa he is likely not going to have the kids sit on his lap. You don’t want to disappoint your children with no Santa. You still want to have pictures of those visits to document their childhoods.
Studio One is hosting Santa on December 19th from 10-7, the 20th from 12-5, and 21st from 4-8. You have 2 choices for your children with Santa.
You will need to pay $10 for the Santa Visit and $99 for the Santa Experience ahead of time when you schedule the appointment. Your $10 will apply to your pictures. The Experience includes pictures and other things like mailing the card to your child.
No pictures or video from cell phones or other personal devices are permitted.
Studio One is located at 800 Greenwood Avenue right after Greenwood begins at the intersection with South Jackson Street. It is one block towards the downtown from Brown’s Floral. We recommend you bring the kids in and change them into the outfits for the pictures in our dressing room. It helps prevent accidents right before the pictures and opens up more possibilities with clothing. Pajamas work great for the pictures and help tell the story. Remember the kids can sit on Santa’s lap and it’s easier to keep a simple outfit from riding up than a complicated suit or dress. Look at how the clothes lay when the child is sitting down ahead of time. If you would rather have other clothing sweaters or mock necks are a good idea.
Don’t forgo a Christmas tradition because of Covid-19. Be safe this year and come to Studio One.
Only one family is allowed in the studio where photography is taking place and one person can select pictures in the sales room at a time. You will need
to call 517-740-6556 to get entry into the studio.
Precautions the studio is taking include ozone cleaning the air in the studio. Wiping all “touch” surfaces down with anti-viral cleaner, running a HEPA filter, having new anti-dust and pollen filters in the furnaces. Some of those things may help more than others but we are doing everything we can to be safe.
Everyone except me has had a recent COVID test. 2 of the other 3 members are my wife and daughter so if they don’t have COVID I probably don’t either. Santa is feeling great and has not had contact with very many people.
We ask that everyone be on their best Covid-19 behavior the next few days. We don’t want anybody to get sick right before they see Santa.
