Westfields Across Australia and NZ Are Offering Adorable Photo Shoots with Santa for Your Pets

Just because you haven't got an actual kid, doesn't mean you have to miss out on that time-honoured tradition of taking some festive shopping centre snaps with the jolly man himself. Westfield centres across Australia and New Zealand have teamed up with a crew of expert pup-arazzi to once again offer Christmas-themed pet photography shoots. Yes – your fur-baby can get a family paw-trait with Santa Claus.

All of Westfield's shopping centres — except for Kotara, NSW and Sydney — are offering an extended festive photography series, with more sessions available than any other year. Unfortunately, not quite all creatures great and small are allowed — dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs can book in at most centres, but you'll need to double check before bringing in something like an alpaca, snake, frog or goat.

Westfield has six spots in Victoria and Queensland, 15 in NSW, two in WA, four in Auckland and one in Christchurch.

Bookings are a must and can be made via your local Westfield's website, where you'll also find some guidelines for you and your four-legged mate. Most centres will have a dedicated Pooch Parking zone where you'll be met and escorted to the set, and your pet needs to be brought in on a lead or in a cage.

There's a booking fee of $3.95, with a range of photo packages to choose from. 'The Vixen' starts from $29.95 for one 6x8 photo, one 4x6 photo and four wallet snaps, while at the higher end you can splash out on 'Santa's Gift Pack' ($49.95), which includes a hefty array of photos, gift tags, digital files, bookmarks and even a calendar.

Various sessions are available at Westfield centres across Australia and NZ (excluding Kotara and Sydney, NSW). Check your local's website for details.
