Outdoor Pet Portraits with Santa

It’s time for the 5th annual Paws and Claus Pet Photo Sessions!

Your pet will be professionally photographed in an outdoor setting by award-winning pet photographer Jenna Regan while enjoying fun activities with Santa like reading a holiday book,  sharing “cookies”, receiving a stocking, playing fetch, reading the naughty or nice meter, Christmas wish list, “telling” Santa what he/she wants for Christmas (like in this photo), and so much more!

Only two dates this year, in past years I’ve had 4-5 dates so don’t delay in signing up if you’d like to be a part of the holiday fun– we always sell out all appointments!

Sun. Nov. 18, 2018

Sun. Dec. 16th, 2018 (please note the new date, change made due to weather)
As of Dec. 10th, we have two openings left!

This year I’ll again have options for multiple pets and people to join in! Learn more on the booking page by clicking the button below.

More Details on Pet Portrait Experience with Santa


One-of-a-Kind Santa Experience

 20 minute individual photo session outdoors with authentic, pet friendly Santa. You’ll have approximately 10-15 images (sometimes more!) to view and choose from at the viewing and ordering appointment, scheduled for a future date after your session at my McKinney office location. 

Options for pets only or pets + people

 In past years these Santa sessions were just for the dogs, this year I’m adding the option to join in the photos with your pets! 


Complimentary basic leash removal

 You can keep your dog safe and close to Santa for all those cute interaction poses and afterward I’ll remove the leash using my handy Photoshop skills.

A Fine Art 5x7 Print + Complimentary Social Sharing File Included

 While additional prints and products will certainly be available for you to order after your session at the viewing and ordering appointment, the Paws and Claus Session includes one 5×7 print… a $125 value!  


Special Packages with holiday cards, prints and products available

 Though it’s completely optional to order more, most people want to add a few more keepsakes from their session. My full product offering is available along with some extra special holiday packages, including the most popular holiday card options.

BONUS: Stocking with goodies for your pet

 A visit to Santa would not be complete without some goodies for your pet, straight from Santa!  

New This Year

More options and even more personalized service

 After five years of adorable Paws and Claus photos the poses, props, and options have continued to expand. Each session is interactive and allows both you and your pet to help choose which activities and images we capture.  

This year we are also offering a MONEY BACK guarantee. Our very own Santa is pet-friendly and has a background in animal rescue.  He’s worked with hundreds of dogs during the Santa photo sessions and is always able to connect and calm them so their personalities shine. We are so confident we will get adorable photos of your pet that we offer a 100% money back guarantee. 

As always, your pets will truly have the most unique Santa Paws photos out there!
