Project Description

Are you looking for Santa in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach?  Ho! Ho!

We have set our Santa date for 2019!

Beach Santa photos has become a Christmas tradition for our local families to bring the kids to the beach for the best Santa photos ever!

Santa is coming to Orange Beach & Gulf Shores!

Our Santa Day is scheduled for December 1, 2019! Weather permitting, we will host Santa on the Beach from 1-4 pm Sunday, December 1 this year.  It is a fun experience for the entire family and a chance to give Santa your wish list in person. After your beach encounter with Santa, you will receive your well-edited, high-resolution photos within a few days. Beach Shutters Photography knows that you want to use these photos for your Christmas cards. Believe me, there is no cuter card than a Santa at the beach with your family photo. Your card will be the talk of the family! Make your plans now to be in Orange Beach to say hi to jolly old St. Nick on Dec. 1.

To save your spot either text us at 251228 0172, or email

The price is $125 for your 5-7 minute session (approximately 7 different poses, depending on baby’s mood). These sessions are for single families. If you plan to bring more folks with you (friends, cousins, etc.) Please reserve 2 sessions. We are looking forward to seeing everyone again this year, and meeting a few new faces too! Bring your Santa hats, props, books, sunglasses and any other cute ideas. We love your creativity and participation! See you at the Beach! Ho! Ho! Ho! xoxoxo

While you’re in town, all tan and happy, let’s get your Christmas card Pictures!  Santa has a place here in Orange Beach, and he would love to join your family for Photos!  Every year I do several mini sessions with Santa, his surfboard and other props for our local families.  I have had so many vacationers ask about getting in on the Santa photos, that I have asked Santa to consider keeping his beard all year and hanging out with You and the family while you’re here.

Santa at the beach, it’s not just for Christmas!  Summertime is a great time to catch him in the off-season.. bring your props, make it cute and personal:  fishing poles, toy tractors, masks and snorkels, beach umbrellas or beach balls.  I will be happy to supply the surfboard if that is your style.

Ho Ho Ho

Santa Claus will be wearing his beach attire, and have his surfboard handy!

The beach makes the best setting for Christmas cards!  Family beach portraits are popular for a reason.  The water and sand simply make a beautiful background!  Add a family and Santa, and you have the cutest Christmas memories to display year after year!

What to do in Orange Beach Alabama

I like Santa! Me too!

Every year my family sits on Santas lap for a photo.

I love comparing our photos from year to year.  We have had cold days with hats and scarves, and hot days in a bikini!  You never know about beach weather in the winter.  No matter, each photo has its own personality, and you get to see how the family has changed.
