What will the Santa photography experience look like this year?
Due to COVID19, to ensure the safety of our staff, Santa, and of course you, a physical distance of 1.5m between customers and Santa will be required. There will be stools for customers to sit on to have their photos taken with Santa, as customers won’t be able to sit on Santa’s throne or knee. Physical distance between Santa, customers and Santa Photography staff will also need to be observed. The Santa Set will be cleaned after each group finishes their photography experience. Our friendly staff will be able to direct you through your 2020 Santa Photography experience. We ask for your patience and allow more time to have your photos taken. 

Please observe the following conditions for all Paws & Claws photography bookings:
• We ask that customers wait in their vehicle until a few moments before their booking time. 
• We ask that customers wait outside the nearest automatic doors until it is their turn. 
• We ask that customers please leave the centre with their pets directly after their session has concluded.
• Please bring disposable bags and clean up after your pets.
• We ask that small to medium sized animals are kept in a pet carrier. Larger animals must have a leash on at all times.

How can we make our Santa photography experience more memorable?
We encourage you to bring your own props should you wish to include these in your photo. Some fun ideas include Santa hats, reindeer ears and Rudolph noses. A limited selection of props will be available during your photography session, which only Santa will hold.

The health, safety and wellbeing of our customers, retailers, team members and the wider community is our highest priority so we are taking extra precautions to ensure our centres are clean, hygienic and minimise large scale interactions.
