What is a Santa Experience? 

Each experience is a 20 minute professional photo session, where your children can interact and share a magical time with the "Big Guy" himself,  SANTA CLAUS!! 

You'll receive a designated time slot, meaning... NO WAITING IN LINE!

Santa will talk, play, & engage with your children following a fun narrative, as we capture timeless moments for you to enjoy for years to come!   At the end of their special time with Santa, each child will be presented with a keepsake gift that they can take home to remember this magical experience.

Our Exclusive

"Santa's Magic Storybook"

Each Santa Experience session follows a storyline that's photographically captured to fill our storybook.  This book is personalized to include each child's name, photos from their session, & has a fun rhyming narrative that retells the tale of Santa & his "helpers" in his magic workshop.  

Santa's Storybooks are 10x10 Premium hardcover books, with thick pages to last generations.  Your children can pass these story books on to their families to tell at Christmastime each year!

**Storybook is an additional purchase & not included in your session fee.**


Additional info:

  • $100 non-refundable* initial payment is DUE NOW to book your session & hold your time slot.  Remaining balance due before or at your session.

  • Each session is for IMMEDIATE FAMILY ONLY 

(NO extended family/friends etc).

  • Santa Experience works best for children who are not afraid of Santa.   This is considered a "no expectations" session, if your child does not want to interact with Santa we will try our best to work our magic, but session time is strictly limited to 20 minutes.  If you think your child might be scared, it is best if parent/s is prepared to be in the session with the child.

  • Dress Festive! Classic & timeless are best. Pajamas are welcome. Avoid wearing black please.

  • Parents are welcome in a photo too!

  • 14-21 Day Turnaround time.  (Photos are edited in sequential order, earlier time slots get edited ahead of later time slots.)

  • Location will be announced soon.

COVID-19 Precautions: 

We plan to have Santa engage with guests in our normal manner for 2021.  

If the situation with the Covid-19 virus changes & restrictions are put back in place by the time of our sessions, we will set up our experience to accommodate a more socially distanced environment. 

Sanitizing will take place between clients, & all patrons will be asked to wear a mask in the waiting areas. 

*Full refunds will be given if the event is cancelled by the photographer due to Covid-19 shut downs & limitations only!  Santa Experience is non-refundable. Refunds will not be given to client no-shows or cancellations.

Santa hopes to see you!
